Who Else Wants To Look Younger? What You Need To Know About Restylane

Many people – especially, those of us who have reached middle age or beyond – wonder about dermal fillers and whether these procedures are right for them. It’s perfectly normal to want to look younger, and regain that youthful appearance in your facial areas. We all want to look as young as we feel, right?

Restylane® is a smart and easy way to increase the volume and smoothness of your skin. It is based on a hyaluronic acid gel that closely resembles the body’s own hyaluronic acid. It is not permanent but the results are long lasting.

This dermal filler improves your natural look by adding back your skin’s volume, thus creating softness and restoring your appearance. As an injectable gel, it should always be administered by a trained, medically qualified practitioner.

How It Works

Youthful skin is abundant with hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function of hyaluronic acid in our skin progressively change, leading to the characteristic signs of aging. Restylane increases your skin’s own supply of hyaluronic acid, adding volume to either soften the signs of aging, or enhance your features.

It is injected using a syringe and immediately plumps and tightens the skin, decreasing wrinkles, scars and lines from sagging skin.

The procedure is fast and fits well with busy lifestyles and with minimal downtime. It usually takes less than 30 minutes and the benefits are seen almost immediately. It may be done in the office and you may go home immediately after the procedure.

What Will My
First Visit Be Like?

Your doctor/practitioner will discuss with you the goals for the procedure, and which facial areas you’d like addressed. They may recommend other options and discuss their benefits and limitations.

How Long Do
The Results Last?

Restylane typically lasts about 9 months or longer.

Are There Any Side
Effects or Risks?

Restylane safety and effectiveness is proven beyond doubt, with strong clinical data spanning a decade. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is not extracted from animals, thereby eliminating the risk of transmitting disease or allergic reactions if you are sensitive to common foods, such as chicken and eggs.
