One central part of the aging process is that the body’s restorative processes begin to slow down. This means that it becomes less effective at restoring collagen and turning over skin cells. Over time, this creates sagging and folds in the skin. Dermal fillers are one type of injectable treatment that can restore volume under the surface of the skin, filling in wrinkles and rejuvenating the face. Restylane® is a popular filler option that can effectively treat facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane is a type of dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid. This substance is naturally found in the body and is responsible for retaining moisture and keeping the skin supple. In the form of a crystal-clear gel, it can restore volume under the skin to fill in wrinkles and maintain its shape using the body’s natural moisture.
Restylane results are visible immediately, although most patients experience some minor bruising and sensitivity at the injection site. This usually subsides quickly. Restylane treatments usually last for between six to nine months, depending on factors like treatment area and the amount of product used. For best rejuvenating results, Restylane can be used at the same time as neuromodulators like Botox® or Dysport®.
