Smiling, laughing, frowning, talking, and chewing can all contribute to wrinkles and creases on the lower face, mouth, and chin. The aging process can also cause underlying layers of fat to decrease, giving your facial features a hollow appearance. Restylane® is a dermal facial filler comprised of a naturally occurring substance in the body known as hyaluronic acid. The gel formula is designed to restore volume and fullness to the face and correct moderate to severe facial folds, including marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and smile lines. Injectables are a quick, non-surgical treatment option that involves only minimal discomfort and downtime so you can appear younger without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
Patients who would like to add fullness to their lips, improve wrinkles and fine lines around the mouth and nose, or increase the volume of certain facial areas can benefit from Restylane® treatment. Candidates should have realistic expectations and be in good general health.
This non-animal-based natural filler is injected strategically into specific areas of the face to add volume. A topical numbing agent or ice can be used to eliminate discomfort while the treatment is administered. Restylane® adds volume and fullness to facial contours and smooths out wrinkles. Restylane® may also be used for lip enhancement.
Injectables are non-invasive and created to be virtually painless, so no downtime is needed. Most patients choose to avoid strenuous activities and sun exposure for the rest of the day, then resume their routine the following day. Mild swelling may occur, but should dissipate within two weeks and can be remedied with cold compresses.
Results include smoother, fuller facial contours in the targeted regions of the face, providing a youthful appearance. Many patients see visible results for up to six months with Restylane® treatment. Regular maintenance treatments may be required.
