Wrinkles, creases, and fine lines are part of the natural aging process. But you don’t necessarily need to live with them, especially when you have a treatment option like Restylane.
Restylane is an injectable treatment for wrinkles and other signs of aging. You can use Restylane injections to treat lines around your mouth, on your chin, and in many other areas of your face.
This filler treatment is made of hyaluronic acid, which is also naturally present in the skin. Use of synthetic hyaluronic acid is effective in treating wrinkles without producing artificial-looking results. Hyaluronic acid adds suppleness and moisture to the skin.
Your doctor can complete a Restylane session in a very short amount of time. There is no downtime required after the treatment, so you can continue with your daily routine as usual without any need to take time off from work.
Your doctor will first numb the treatment site in order to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. He will then administer the injection. The needle used for injections is quite thin, which makes the procedure even more comfortable. The injected hyaluronic acid immediately gets to work and fills the tissues underneath the wrinkles. You will be able to see the results immediately.
Results from Restylane treatment last for quite a while, so you won’t need to keep coming in for constant treatments. Since the body will eventually absorb the hyaluronic acid, you may require repeat sessions every year or so to maintain results.
After the Treatment
Restylane is a fuss-free treatment. You don’t need to observe extensive aftercare precautions. You may have a little swelling in the treatment area, but it will reduce soon after the injections are complete. Your doctor may ask you to avoid sun exposure until the swelling goes down. You will also need to refrain from chemicals or laser treatments to avoid inflammation. Your doctor will recommend care instructions and precautions you need to take based on your skin type.
One of the biggest benefits of Restylane is that it produces very natural results. With Restylane, you don’t need to worry about frozen facial expressions. Your skin will appear smooth and radiant, and the effect will look normal and natural.
Another benefit of Restylane is that the filler is not obtained through any animal sources. Many people have allergic reactions from animal components. With Restylane use, there is minimal to zero chance of allergic reactions.
The hyaluronic acid particles have the ability to attract water, so even as the filler breaks down, the results continue to remain apparent. Restylane fillers are safe to use. There are no adverse side effects.
