Often using creams and other anti-aging products just doesn’t cut it. Time can have a harsh effect on our appearance as the sun, gravity, and age take their toll. Many people are interested in getting non-surgical cosmetic procedures like Restylane® injections because they are less costly and less invasive.
Restylane® results vary depending on what the injections are used for. Restylane® injections improve the appearance of aged skin because they fill in fine lines, wrinkles and creases creating a fuller more youthful look. Retylane® injections can be used to plump the limps and fill in wrinkles on the forehead or fill in wrinkles around the eyes and mouth.
Restylane® is made of a naturally occurring substance within the human body called Hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is used to create a cushion under the skin’s surface because it attracts moisture. Often as we age the level of hyaluronic acid in our body depletes and thus wrinkles and hollowing occur.
Restylane® injections are preferred to surgical procedures because they are non-invasive. In as few as 10 minutes patients can reap the benefits of Restylane® results. Many patients will initially experience a certain amount of swelling, redness, and tingling with their Restylane® injections. However, these side effects diminish very quickly and patients can resume normal activity immediately following their Restylane® treatments.
Like most cosmetic injectables, Restylane® results are not permanent. However, Restylane® results do last twice as long as most other cosmetic injectables of their type. Most patients who get Restylane® injections see their Restylane® results for at least five months but many see them for an entire year. Once the results from Restylane® injections begin to diminish patients can return for additional treatments.
