If you’ve been considering Restylane®, there is no reason to put it off any longer. After it has been skillfully injected into the treatment area, this injectable can give you a youthful, smoother appearance, and it can restore lost volume in your face.
The amazing benefits of Restylane® are based on hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally within your skin. The purpose of hyaluronic acid is to provide fullness, but it’s also effective at increasing skin elasticity.
How Aging Affects the Skin
The aging process is notorious for causing wrinkles and making you look older. Over time, aging causes you to lose volume in your face, and your skin becomes much more vulnerable to wrinkles. Although aging is natural, it causes your skin to break down, and you’ll begin to lose the important compounds that keep your face looking young.
By restoring lost hyaluronic acid, Restylane® works well for facial folds, and when compared with regular collagen injections, it can deliver better results. On average, the anti-aging results from Restylane® last twice as long as standard collagen injections.
What Makes Restylane® Special?
This product uses two major processes to restore your appearance, and once it has been injected into the treatment area, it begins adding volume to your face. The increased volume helps to smooth unwanted folds and wrinkles, and the formula integrates into your dermal tissue.
The second process that Restylane® uses to restore your appearance involves attracting and binding water molecules within your face, which helps to increase and maintain volume. On average, the results from this treatment last about six to nine months.
If you’re considering this treatment option, there are some things to consider. Unlike some of the treatments that use permanent fillers, Restylane® doesn’t leave any material in your skin. Since it consists of a degradable gel, your body eliminates it over time. You should also know that this treatment is safe, and it has been used since 1996. Since the formula isn’t animal based, it doesn’t require allergy testing, and you don’t have to worry about risky side effects.
All living creatures have hyaluronic acid, and the main purpose of the acid is to add volume. The hyaluronic acid that Restylane® is formulated with is called NASHATM, and it’s not based on animal products.
Restore Volume and Fullness
As your body grows older, you’ll begin to notice volume loss, and the face is one of the first places to lose large amounts of volume and fullness. Restylane® can restore lost volume because it fills hollows and replaces missing hyaluronic acid. Although the results are temporary, they’ll make you look younger and feel better about your appearance. Treatments can be safely repeated at our office for ongoing results.
