What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a brand of dermal filler that is designed to reduce unwanted wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. Restylane® is hyaluronic acid-based, which is a plus because hyaluronic acid is produced naturally in the body, so the body accepts it readily when injected under the skin.
What benefits can I get from Restylane®?
Restylane® rejuvenates your skin, giving you a healthier, younger appearance. A single treatment produces immediate results that can last up to a year. Plus, the results gained with Restylane® are natural looking and do not affect your facial expressions. Since its launch in 1996, the efficacy and safety of Restylane® has been studied extensively.
What areas can Restylane® treat?
Restylane® is an effective treatment for facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used to create fuller lips and keep facial contours in shape. Here are the problems/areas Restylane® can treat:
Smooth out nasolabial folds, the lines located between the nose and mouth
Smooth out glabella lines, the lines between the eyebrows
Give additional volume and shape to the lips
Improve the shape and contour of the chin and cheeks
Rejuvenate the face, neck, and back of the hands
What can I expect during a Restylane® treatment?
Restylane® gel is injected in small amounts with a very fine needle directly into the skin that needs treatment. The procedure usually takes about 30 minutes, is done in Dr. Croley’s office, and has no recovery time. Results are visible immediately after the procedure, and continue to improve over the next few days.
