As one begins to age, the eye area can become a telltale sign of the loss of youth. In the past, the only way to achieve a younger and more refreshed look required the act of plastic surgery or injections that paralyzed facial muscles. However, now there is a remedy available that not only has immediate results, but requires very little, to no recovery time!
Restylane is a dermal cosmetic filler that is not only safe and natural, but has immediate results by filling out the skin and smoothing out those pesky facial area wrinkles and other expression folds. The safety of Restylane is unrivaled by any other procedure on the market today because it is composed of hyaluronic acid; a substance that is found naturally occurring in the human body. The ingredients in Restylane are also safe because they are 100% biocompatible, making it so the risk of allergic reactions is not a worry and will require no pre-procedure allergy testing.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane is unique in the fact that is uses one’s own body moisture to maintain its shape. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane makes it a hydrophilic substance, meaning it loves water, and as the hyaluronic acid degrades it will bind to even more water, making the results of Restylane last even longer than most procedures available on the current market.
How is Restylane administered?
Restylane will be injected by a physician in specifically selected location points on the face. The Restylane is injected beneath the skin with minimal discomfort and only takes a few minutes for each injection. Most patients procedure time is around 30 minutes and can return home shortly after the procedure is finished.
How quickly will I see results from Restylane?
The results of the Restylane can be seen almost immediately and full results can be expected within one week of treatment. Restylane can be expected to reduce the look of wrinkles and facial folds by up to 80%!
How long do the results of Restylane last?
Most patients have enjoyed the results of Restylane for one year and often times even longer! How long the results will last will very slightly for each patient depending upon their age, weight loss or skin type.
Side effects or complications with Restylane?
Restylane is made up of safe ingredients, making side effects or complications an extremely rare occurrence. The most common side effects of Restylane can include nausea, redness or tenderness at the site of injection, muscle weakness and headache. Most of these side effects will resolve within a few hours or day or two. However, if one feels that the side effects are more exaggerated, it is advised to contact your physician immediately.
