The introduction of facial rejuvenation treatments such as dermal fillers gave people who wanted to regain a younger appearance an alternative to surgery. Instant results with no downtime make fillers an increasingly popular alternative.
Restylane is one of the driving forces behind the current injectable revolution. The hyaluronic acid filler has certainly come a long way since its approval by the FDA for mild to moderate creases around the mouth and lips. Off-label use of Restylane includes filling tear troughs for smoothing under-eye hollows, plumping the cheeks, and softening acne scars.
The Restylane Procedure
A Restylane session takes around between 5 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Restylane with lidocaine is available so there is no need for separate local anesthesia before the procedure.
Another good thing about Restylane is there is no need for pre-injection allergy testing because it is made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body.
