What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal injectable filler that is performed to address the unwanted effects of aging. It is a non-surgical procedure and only uses injections to deliver a substance made from hyaluronic acid directly into the areas of the skin that need correcting. The gel injected is made to fill in the fine lines and wrinkles in the face, resulting to a smoother, more youthful appearance.
Who are candidates for Restylane?
Almost anyone can have a Restylane treatment since it only requires a few injections and does not involve removal of tissue or creation of incisions. The risk for complications is also quite low. However, people who have a history of bacterial protein allergy may not be good candidates for this treatment.
What can be treated with Restylane?
This type of dermal filler can treat virtually any part of the facial skin that needs correcting. Particularly, it reduces the appearance of facial creases, light wrinkles, and deep folds in the face. It is more popularly proven to effectively diminish fine mouth lines and laugh lines. Moreover, the Restylane filler can also be used in lip augmentation procedures and can be used to fill any part of the face that has hollowed due to aging and stress.
What can I expect during my Restylane appointment?
Before anything else, it is important to have an initial consultation to discuss your candidacy for the procedure. During this time, certain medications and habits may have to be stopped in order to make the procedure successful.
During the day of your appointment, you may be offered topical local anesthesia in the form of a cream to keep you comfortable throughout the process. The Restylane filler will then be injected into your skin where treatment is needed through a very thin needle. The hyaluronic acid component in the filler is capable of working with your tissue to stimulate collagen, thus eliminating the sagging and drooping areas of the skin. This results to a smoother skin surface.
There’s no guarantee of specific results and the results can vary.
