Restylane® Dermal Filler
Restylane® dermal filler is hyaluronic acid based, and it is FDA approved for rejuvenation of the lips and perioral wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance in the body that has a vital role in the maintenance of skin volume and hydration, joint lubrication and cushioning, as well as eye volume and shape. It’s incredibly hydrophilic and retains water, absorbing more than 1,000 times its weight, therefore adds volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid also binds to elastin and collagen, providing essential nutrients to them, which provides elasticity, structure, and dimension to the skin.
Restylane® injections contain a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, and it’s biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. With aging, lips and the surrounding perioral area loose volume and acquire unsightly vertical lines. These vertical lines are commonly referred to as smoker’s lines or lipstick lines (they become noticeable when lipstick “bleeds”). Various factors contribute to the formation of vertical lines on the lips and the perioral area: genetics, age, lifestyle and repetitive habits, such as repeated, regular lip movements. The combination of neuromodulators (Botox, Xeomin, Dysport) with hyaluronic acid-containing Restylane® dermal filler prolongs the positive rejuvenating effect.
Uses for Restylane®
Nothing can age you as quickly as having dark circles or deep hollows below your eyes. The eyes are one of the first areas in which many people start to show signs of aging, and it can be pretty upsetting. Like many people, you may have tried various home remedies to get rid of those unsightly circles but enjoyed little or no success. A more effective option is to have Restylane® injected into the tissue below the eyes.
Aside from smoothing fine lines, Restylane® is used for lip augmentation. The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, often show signs of aging as you get older. These signs can present as thinning lips, lost shape, and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane® dermal filler is explicitly designed to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles. It’s formulated with lidocaine, which makes the procedure comfortable. The effect is visible immediately, and full results are exhibited in a few days.
Results with Restylane®
The results last from six months to one year, depending on the individual’s skin and health characteristics, muscle movement and injector’s technique. Restylane® injections are only for use in patients 21 and over. The clear gel is injected into the skin during treatment, and it is possible for more than one syringe to be needed. There are, of course, some instances when the use of Restylane® dermal filler is contraindicated. Only licensed and certified professionals are to be trusted with this treatment. Individual results may vary.
The injection is developed in sterile labs to reduce the risk of infection or other serious side effects. The care taken in the development of each injection makes it unnecessary for you to go in for a skin test before your Restylane® dermal filler treatment. However, you should discuss your medical history with the professional administering the procedure to ensure that you are not at risk for rare allergic reactions.
