This dermal filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that your body produces naturally
Dr. Roly Borges is an NYC based dermal filler expert, including other renowned products like Botox Cosmetic, Perlane and Dysport.
Restylane’s main component is hyaluronic acid, a substance that our bodies produce and absorbs well. As we get older, less hyaluronic acid is produced, causing our skin to look dry. Restylane brings a fresh appearance back to the skin with natural looking results.
As a hyaluronic acid based filler, Restylane can do more than replenish certain wrinkles. In fact, the substance can improve the entire treated area by bringing moisture back to the skin. You can still see some improvement weeks after the injections.
The actual injections can be done in a quick visit and effects can last 6 to 12 months. The best part is that you can resume your daily activities, because there is no need for downtime.
Restylane is a soft tissue filler that a doctor injects to replenish certain areas of your face. The substance creates a cushion below the skin to make it look fuller and healthier.
Because this is a hyaluronic acid base filler, its texture is soft and produces a natural looking result. Additionally, its components bring moisture and glow back to the treated area.
Restylane can be used to fill moderate and severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds, also known as marionette lines. However, it is also very effective as a lip enhancement treatment.
Restylane components are well absorbed by the body, there is very low risk of an allergic reaction. Plus, its texture leaves your skin feeling natural to the touch, which does not happen with other products with a harder consistency.
As any other face injection, you could experience some discomfort associated with needles. Your doctor can apply a numbing substance to minimize any unpleasant sensation and prescribe a pain reliever if needed.
There is no need for downtime after Restylane injections. You can go on with your day after a quick visit to the doctor, perfect for those with a busy routine to get back to.
As we mentioned before, hyaluronic acid is the main component of Restylane. This substance is naturally produced by your body and it keeps the skin looking fresh and moisturized. As we grow older, the body produces less of this substance. Since hyaluronic acid is no stranger to the organism, Restylane brings health back to the skin with little to no risk of an allergic reaction.
FDA data explains Restylane contraindications are associated with allergies gram positive bacterial proteins and bleeding disorders. Ask your doctor about the best option for your particular concerns. Remember that there are different dermal fillers available and an expert professional can evaluate what is best for you.
A Restylane procedure last 20-30 minutes and requires no anesthesia.
You can get the procedure done and resume your daily activities as planned.
Avoid taking aspirins before and during the treatment date as it can increase bruising.
