How Does Restylane® Work?
As we age, we lose approximately 1/5th of a teaspoon of volume in our face per year. This volume lose makes us look older, hollow and tired. Replacing the volume can be done by several different dermal fillers. The one brand of fillers that is a good place to start is Restylane®. When injected into the skin, Restylane® lifts and fills to restore the youthful contours of your face. It can refill your cheeks, sculpt your jawline, restore thin lips, and lift wrinkles. In addition to adding volume, Restylane® triggers the development of collagen and elastin. These two vital proteins give skin its firmness and lift. By increasing the production of these proteins, Restylane® helps make your skin look healthier and more resilient.
How Long Does it Take for Restylane® to Work?
Some dermal fillers take time to work, but Restylane® results appear immediately. You will see improvements as soon as you leave your appointment. You may see continued improvements as your skin develops more elasticity and strength over time. Restylane® results can last from six to twelve months. Fillers in areas like the cheeks usually last longer than fillers in flexible areas like the lips.
What Can Restylane® Treat?
Restylane® comes in a range of formulas, each intended for different uses. Your injection specialist will choose the right one to address your concerns. Common issues treated with Restylane® include:
- Hollow cheeks
- Tear troughs
- Undereye circles
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Deep lines and wrinkles
- Lip lines
Restylane® excels almost anywhere that you can lose facial volume or develop wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is the most widely tested and used dermal filler material. A skilled injector can also use Restylane® to sculpt and contour your features, including the chin and jawline. Restylane® even works on the backs of the hands to make them look more youthful.
