Cosmetic fillers provide dramatic results for improving the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds. This is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restore volume and fullness to the skin, plump up lips, decreases the appearance of under eye circles, adds volume to cheek area, and fill in scars. The cosmetic results are visible immediately, bestowing upon you a more youthful and invigorated look.
These fillers offer a natural look and feel with long-lasting results. They contain a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, a substance natural to our bodies. This process creates a smooth, natural look, with less swelling. The consistency of dermal fillers may also help to minimize the discomfort and swelling that may sometimes occur during the injection procedure. Individual results may vary.
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. 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.
Individual results may vary.
Restylane® injected into the lips can give back fullness to lips that have receded. The cosmetic results are visible immediately.
What is the Restylane® treatment like? Restylane® is injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles or folds. It can also be 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 with Restylane® 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.
What can I expect following treatment with Restylane®?
You can resume normal activities following Restylane® treatment. The most commonly reported side effect has been redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within a few hours or, at most, a day or two. Results are immediately evident. Lines, wrinkles and folds look softer and your skin looks smooth.
How long do the results of Restylane® last?
Depending on many factors, such as your lifestyle, age, location it is injected, and skin structure results of Restylane® injections may last as long as six months to a year or more. You may require a touch up treatment 2 to 4 weeks after the first treatment to achieve your desired result. Restylane® 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.
