Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that can be used for a number of cosmetic dermatology procedures. The drug has few side effects, the procedure only takes a matter of seconds, and the results of each treatment last longer than those of the previous treatment. Continue reading for more information on how Restylane injections can help you.
Reduces Facial Wrinkles
Restylane can diminish or erase moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face and neck. It is particularly effective on lines or creases around the nose and mouth, as well as crow's feet and forehead wrinkles. The effects are immediate and noticeable, and the side effects are so minimal that most patients can go straight back to their normal day-to-day activities. The results of your first treatment should last about 4 and a half to 9 months. The results of subsequent treatments should last about 18 months.
Makes Face Look Fuller and More Youthful
Restylane plumps the skin, helping it regain lost volume in a natural way. Injections also deeply hydrate the skin, which improves its structure and elasticity. This results in a smoother, more youthful appearance. If you have age-related hollows in your face, such as in your cheeks or around and under your eyes, Restylane can fill in these hollows.
Enhances Size and Appearance of Lips
Restylane is commonly used in lip enhancement, as it can plump the lips, increasing their volume and improving their shape. Your cosmetic dermatologist will help you find your ideal lip size and shape, and will adjust your treatment to achieve that look. Treatment takes less than an hour, and there are few side effects. The results are subtle and natural, but immediately noticeable, and last for about 6 months.
