WASHINGTON, DC, July 28, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Restylane is a dermal filler that can be used to restore volume and fullness to your skin, significantly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane has been proven incredibly effective at reducing signs of aging such as wrinkles and creases around the nose, mouth, and lips, as well as those that can occur under and around the eyes. For patients over the age of 21, Restylane can be also used for lip augmentation to help produce full, kissable soft lips.
How Restylane Works
Restylane is one of the only dermal fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is what helps your skin maintain its youthful and soft appearance but, as you age, your body will naturally begin to produce less of this substance. Many dermal fillers mimic the effects of HA, but this is often accomplished with synthetic compounds. Because Restylane is comprised of natural HA, instances of rejection and other complications are significantly reduced and results can last for upwards of six months.
HA is a hydrophilic substance, meaning it attracts water. When you receive Restylane injections, the HA molecules bind to your body's natural stores of water. This process gradually plumps the skin, restoring elasticity and producing a noticeably softer, fuller, and more youthful appearance.
Your cosmetic surgeon will perform Restylane treatment by administering several shallow injections in and around your areas of concern. This outpatient procedure generally takes less than one hour and results are often immediate. Unlike some other dermal fillers, you will only require one Restylane treatment to achieve stunning results. Temporary swelling or redness may occur at the injection site but, due to the natural compounds comprising Restylane, allergic reactions are extremely rare and most side-effects last less than 24 hours.
You have a number of options when it comes to nonsurgical facial rejuvenation. Make sure you are working with an experienced facial cosmetic surgeon who can discuss all of your options, assess the quality and appearance of your skin, and help you determine if Restylane can help you reach your aesthetic goals.
