Volume loss and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, however, at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging, we offer several solutions to achieving a younger appearance. Restylane works instantly to smooth out wrinkles and folds or add subtle volume to the lips.
Have you noticed an increase in the formation of wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots? These are among the most common early signs of aging that may appear in anyone at any time in their lives. For many people, this can cause a great deal of stress, as they begin to look older and feel unattractive. There are many different types of cosmetics you can buy that offer promises of rejuvenation, but they don’t always deliver on those promises.
Cases like this require a little extra help in the form of a dermal filler. One dermal filler that has proven to be effective in rejuvenating one’s youthful good looks is Restylane. This filler is effective in treating facial wrinkles and folds, acne scars, and hollow cheeks. It can help restore you to a natural-looking and youthful appearance with non-surgical treatments.
What is Restylane?
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid, which is a chemical that is naturally present in the human body. Hyaluronic acid aids in tissue repair and rejuvenation by assisting in cell growth. It can help ensure tighter skin with improved volume.
As you grow older, your body will produce less hyaluronic acid, which leads to the slow degradation of your skin quality and results in an older look. This paired with the effects of UV rays from sun exposure and other outside factors can cause inflammation and skin damage, which further damages your skin.
Restylane injections are FDA approved to restore one’s youthful skin by replacing the diminished amounts of hyaluronic acid.
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body and is responsible for giving the skin moisture. When placed under the skin, Restylane can instantly smooth out wrinkles and folds for a younger appearance. Restylane also consists of several specific formulas that can be used to treat specific concerns.
Who is a Candidate for Restylane?
Candidates for Restylane filler are those who are looking for a nonsurgical solution to improving their signs of aging. Restylane can effectively add volume to lines and wrinkles in the lower face, specifically around the nose and mouth. These lines are known as static wrinkles because they are present even when the face is relaxed. Restylane can also be added to the lips for a subtle enhancement. The formula is approved for those 21 and over. Those that are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive Restylane.
The Treatment Process
Prior to treatment with Restylane, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream can be applied to help ensure a comfortable process. Adley DaSilva will then map out where the formula will be injected. A small amount of Restylane will then be placed in the treatment areas either to smooth out wrinkles or add volume to the lips. The injection process only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
The Restylane treatment is a simple process that requires precise injections in specific areas to get the best effect. It only takes a few minutes and you’ll be back to your normal daily activities in no time. Before the injection takes place, your cosmetic surgeon will apply a topical anesthetic to help promote comfort throughout the entire process.
Recovery and Results
After the injections are completed, you will begin to see initial results immediately and continued improvements over the course of time. The results you experience can last from 6 to 12 months. There are very few side effects and little downtime. It is a great filler for the cheeks, smile lines, and marionette lines and it has been known to provide high patient satisfaction.
Because Restylane uses a natural chemical component such as hyaluronic acid, it preserves the natural facial expressions and gives just the right amount of lift needed to correct laugh lines and other medium depth wrinkles.
Hyaluronic acid acts similarly to a sponge in the skin that expands to lift up folds and wrinkles while supporting the sunken areas. It also helps stimulate the production of collagen, another protein that contributes to healthy and beautiful skin.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Restylane, so patients can get right back to their regular routine. Some swelling, redness, and itching at the injection sites can be expected for the first day. Results of Restylane are instant and patients can enjoy smoother skin and a younger appearance for up to 18 months before a touch-up session is needed.
