As we age, so does the skin on our face. Unfortunately, the face is a focal point in social interactions, and telltale signs of aging appear prominently on the face. Factors such as stress, the sun, environmental pollution, external and physical elements, and gravity also affect the face and make us look much older that we actually are.
Cosmetic products such as creams, lotions, and repairing and reversing serums can only do so much to hide the signs of aging on the face and reverse the effects of aging. People often choose injectable dermal fillers like Restylane to eliminate the appearance of fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from their face. This creates a more youthful look.
Restylane Dermal Filler
Restylane is a clear biodegradable gel filler and has been approved by the FDA as safe for use. It is sold in more than 60 countries and has satisfied over ten million customers worldwide.
Restylane contains HA (hyaluronic acid), a naturally occurring substance in the human body. HA is not derived from animals but from humans; this eliminates the risk of allergic reactions to Restylane. The HA used in Restylane is derived from a species of bacteria called Streptococcus and is made in a laboratory using biotechnology and natural fermentation.
People love Restylane because it is an incredibly convenient and quick way to boost the volume and appearance of the skin, removing wrinkles. It can be used on many parts of the face, such as the lips, cheeks, forehead, chin, and under the eyes. Through this treatment method, cheek wrinkles, glabellar lines, and the lines stretching from the sides of the nose to the sides of the mouth (the nasolabial folds) can all be eased away.
What to Expect from the Injection Procedure
The Restylane is first loaded into a syringe. It is then administered to the patient in the form of an injection directly into the tissues of the face. Once it is injected into the patient’s skin in the targeted areas, the Restylane gel binds with the tissues to trap water molecules in the skin, retaining moisture and maintaining volume. HA makes the skin supple and voluminous by keeping it hydrated all the time.
The product smoothes away fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face, hydrating the skin and boosting volume. It is gradually processed by the body in small quantities until it disappears. It does not harm the body in any way, even if residue is left behind in the body.
Restylane provides immediate results that last up to six months or longer. People whose metabolic rate is slower may even enjoy the results of Restylane longer than six months.
