Lines and wrinkles are an inevitable part of aging as the effects of gravity and sun damage begin to leave their marks on our faces. Restylane is a brand of injectable dermal fillers for improving the appearance of these visible signs of aging for a younger, refreshed face.
A non-surgical Restylane treatment can be used to improve the appearance of:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Loss of facial volume
- Thinning lips (non-surgical lip augmentation)
Restylane - How Does It Work?
Restylane is a popular group of hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers that are used to fight moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. The colorless HA gel is intended to mimic the hyaluronic acid that is naturally found in your skin to temporarily restore facial volume and smooth out signs of aging.
A dermal filler like Restylane can be used in conjunction with Botox in order to achieve fuller results and prevent the development of new lines and wrinkles.
Your Restylane or Juvederm Treatment
Dr. Rosenthal will administer your filler treatment in the office. The filler solution will be injected below the dermis of your skin in the treatment spot. The HA gel works with the existing hyaluronic acid in your tissue to add volume beneath the skin and smooth away lines or wrinkles.
Your treatment should take about half an hour and you should be able to return to your daily routine promptly. Some patients may experience minor side effects, such as redness or itching, for the first few days. The results of your Restylane treatment can last for up to 12 months with minor touch ups to maintain the best results.
