Restylane is an FDA-approved injectable gel for the treatment of unwanted facial creases and lines. This dermal filler adds volume and fullness to the skin to reverse wrinkles, folds, lipstick lines, and marionette lines. Who ever said signs of aging didn’t have their own time machine?
How Does Restylane Treat Facial Wrinkles, Folds, and Fine Lines?
Restylane uses revolutionary cross-linked hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles and folds naturally. This cross-linking technology bounds chains of hyaluronic acid together to transform liquid hyaluronic acid into a soft, moldable gel.
When the hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin, it shapes itself into the wrinkles and folds to fill them and smooth the skin’s overall appearance.
Better yet, cross-linked hyaluronic acid is metabolized slowly by the body, resulting in longer lasting results of youthfulness and radiance. In clinical trials of Restylane, 95% of patients saw results, some up to 18 months after the treatment!
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is responsible for maintaining the skin’s volume and hydration. Unfortunately, age can limit the body’s supply of hyaluronic acid and lead to dry and wrinkled skin.
Since hyaluronic acid absorbs more than 1,000 times its own weight in water, it can add volume to the skin’s surface while binding with collagen and elastin to provide the face with more structure and elasticity. The overall result helps your face look years younger.
Why Choose Restylane?
Restylane uses non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA), which means that none of the hyaluronic acid is derived from animal sources. Furthermore, the Restylane injection is quick, virtually painless, and requires no downtime at all. In just one brief office visit you can eliminate wrinkles for a more youthful complexion that lasts as long as 18 months, with a simple follow-up treatment after about 5 months.
