What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved, safe and natural non-animal-based dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds such as those deep creases around your mouth that you probably dislike greatly. Restylane® has been used by board-certified dermatologists since 1996, in over 15 million treatments in more than 65 countries worldwide, and has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures used today, since it’s a quick and easy treatment, skin improvements are seen immediately, there’s virtually no downtime, and the results last a long time. All of these perks make it even more popular among women and men who want those lines, wrinkles and creases around their mouth to be gone, and also to get some natural-looking contouring around the cheek and chin.
Made from hyaluronic acid, a substance occurring naturally in your body, this injectable filler plumps up those lines and fills in those creases to create a natural new look of smoother contour, and a fresher, younger-looking face. Since it’s made from hyaluronic acid, it’s non-allergenic, which means you won’t need allergy tests prior to getting injections. After the simple and safe non-surgical procedure, you’ll see results right away.
If you have lines, wrinkles and folds around your mouth and lips, making you look older than your years – or if you simply want to erase some years from your face and look much younger, fresher, healthier and happier than you have in a long time – ask your dermatologist about Restylane® injections to eliminate what you don’t like about your facial features, and you could find yourself among the many who have turned back the hands of time and de-creased their faces for a fresher, new look that’s completely natural-looking and one of those fast-results improvements you’ve been hoping for.
You’ll find out from your board-certified dermatologist the differences between the products comprising the Restylane family of injectable fillers, including Restylane, Restylane-L®, Perlane®, and Perlane-L®. These dermal fillers can be used individually to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (called nasolabial folds). Restylane and Restylane-L are the only products FDA approved for lip enhancement in patients 21 years of age, and are uniquely formulated to give lips greater, natural-looking fullness and definition.
Here’s how it works: When Restylane® gel is injected beneath the skin’s surface, it integrates into your body’s dermal tissue and then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume. After some time, Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue. Patients appreciate that Restylane® is not derived from animal sources, which is another of the many perks of this safe dermal filler injected by an experienced and board-certified dermatologist.
