Since becoming the first hyaluronic acid filler to be approved by the FDA in 2003, Restylane® has been used more than 30 million times. It’s no surprise then that most people have at least heard of the product, but how familiar are you with Restylane and what it can do for you and your wrinkles?
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is an injectable filler that targets the early signs of aging by adding volume to areas that may have begun to sag over time. Restylane mimics your own body’s resources to rejuvenate your skin and restore your youthful contours. This is all possible thanks to hyaluronic acid, a substance your body produces naturally. Hyaluronic acid’s remarkable ability to attract and hold moisture helps to balance and plump your skin, creating greater resilience as well as a bright, glowing complexion.
Busting Wrinkles, One Injection at a Time
If you’re looking for a wrinkle treatment, Restylane might be the answer. As we age, it’s almost inevitable that we begin to see crow’s feet edge out from the corner of our eyes. Frown lines follow close behind, as do those nose-to-mouth grooves that can make us seem older than we are. Loss of volume can change the entire shape of your face, turning the corners of your mouth into a subtle frown. When Restylane is injected into wrinkles and folds, sunken curves are plumped, feathering around the lips is minimized, and volume returns to your cheeks, chin and forehead.
At Aesthetics at Illinois Eye Center, we also offer specialized Restylane products such as Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft, both of which use innovative NASHA technology for a more tailored type of treatment. By using particles of different sizes, these treatments can better target specific problems for even more impressive results. For instance, smaller particles are ideal for detailed shaping and filling in very fine wrinkles, whereas larger particles make short work of severe wrinkles while adding volume over larger areas.
Before and After Restylane
Restylane is prized by many aesthetic specialists because it produces such natural-looking results. Instead of appearing frozen or unrecognizable, you look like a younger, more vivacious version of yourself. Treatment efficacy depends on several factors, including age and overall skin health, but each session can last from six to 12 months. With a recovery period of just 48 to 72 hours, Restylane is a breeze, even for the busiest clients.
