Dramatically smoother skin without surgery:
Facial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body's collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows. Until recently, injectable collagen was the most widely used available cosmetic filler to improve the appearance of these lines.
What are the benefits of a Restylane® treatment?
- Immediately you will discern a smoothing of the wrinkles and folds
- Restylane® will impart lift and a new firmness to your skin
- With lip enhancement, the results will be a noticeably fuller and more sensuous contour
- It is not necessary for you to be tested for skin sensitivity
- The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look
- When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed
Restylane® is a long-lasting cosmetic filler that provides dramatic results for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds. This is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin, plump up lips, and fill in scars. Restylane® injected into the lips can give back fullness to lips that have receded. The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing you with a more youthful and invigorated look.
What is the treatment like?
Restylane® is injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles or folds. It is also injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. A skin test is not necessary prior to treatment, so treatment can be performed at any time. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a topical cream or anesthetic block. Treatment results are immediately evident.
How long do the results last?
Depending on many factors such as your lifestyle, age and skin structure your results may last as long as six months to a year or more. You may require a touch-up treatment 2-4 weeks after the first treatment to achieve your desired result. Treatment to enhance the lips is reported to last much longer than treatment using standard collagen filler. When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed.
How is Restylane® different from Collagen?
Restylane® has been demonstrated to last much longer than the standard bovine collagen injection. The occurrence of an allergic reaction is extremely rare due to the product's non-animal associated basis. Unlike injectable collagen filler that is made of bovine protein and can cause an allergic reaction in some patients, Restylane® is a natural substance, hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule already present naturally in the human body. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is similar to that found throughout your body, which gives volume and fullness to the skin. it is both biodegradable and compatible with human hyaluronic acid. Because of this compatibility, it is not necessary for you to be tested for skin sensitivity.
