Is it possible that the fountain of youth can be found in a syringe? Restylane captures youthful vitality by offering a safe, effective means of augmenting the lips, smoothing out laugh lines and filling in what collagen loss has left behind.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation that is injected directly into the lips and surrounding areas typically once or twice as needed over a period of two weeks. There are quite a number of products found in the Restylane family, including Restylane, Restylane-L, Restylane Silk, Perlane and Perlane-L . These innovative dermal fillers are composed of a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar found within the skin cells of body.
How Does It Work?
Restylane works to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles in areas such as the soft skin of the lips as well as the nasolabial folds around the mouth and nose.
Unlike collagen, Restylane is not an animal by-product, so there is far less risk of an adverse allergic reaction. Restylane is able to fill in delicate areas that Botox cannot access. The use of hyaluronic acid delivers a higher degree of precision and accuracy during treatment. Restylane provides longer lasting results meaning less treatments overall, which saves both time and money.
How Long Do Results Last?
Though exact results may vary from person to person, most people typically experience significant improvement within the first 14 days proceeding treatment. Results continue to amplify for the next six months.
What are Possible Side Effects?
As with any other injectable dermal filler, tenderness, bruising, swelling, redness, or itching may occur at the injection site. Symptoms generally subside within two to seven days. Treatment should only be administered by a licensed practitioner.
