Restylane dermal fillers are injectable facial fillers made with hyaluronic acid that reduce wrinkles, plump sunken or drooping areas, and add volume and shape to lips. Restylane is safe and non-toxic and has been used to help fight aging and enhance beauty for over twenty years.
Collagen is a protein found naturally in the body that keeps skin looking plump, soft, and young. It also supports healthy bones, tendons, and joints. Another compound found naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid, helps keep collagen healthy by binding water, which keeps collagen moisturized and stretchy, and it also promotes the formation of new collagen. Hyaluronic acid also has a role in lubrication and cushioning under the skin and in joints. Both collagen and hyaluronic acid work together to keep skin looking smooth, firm, and elastic. As we age, the amount of collagen and hyaluronic acid in the body decreases, and the skin of the face can sag and becomes less elastic. The contours of the face change as the skin and tissue shifts from the force of gravity and the effects of the sun. Once collagen is depleted, it can be difficult to regenerate.
Restylane dermal filler is an FDA approved gel made with hyaluronic acid, which is injected into targeted places of the face to fight signs of aging. The injections take just 15 minutes to an hour, and some results will be visible immediately. The filler takes a few days to settle into place and absorb water, before the full result will be achieved. It lasts for six to eighteen months before another treatment is needed. Some of the Restylane formulas contain lidocaine, which is a numbing agent to reduce pain during the treatment.
Restylane dermal filler can be used around the eyes, temples, cheeks, folds around the nose, and around the mouth and lips. It can also be used on the hands, feet, and earlobes.
There may be some minor side effects from Restylane injections such as tenderness, redness, swelling, and itching.
