Product Spotlight: Restylane

No one likes facial skin wrinkles, but they are a natural part of the aging process. As we age, our skin tends to become less elastic, drier, and thinner. The aging process creates lines, folds, creases and wrinkles on the face and neck. Even fine lines and wrinkles can make you appear less energetic, older, and more tired. Fortunately, there is a simple solution that can slow down, even reverse many of the telltale signs of aging. Restylane, an FDA-approved dermal filler, is a specially formulated gel that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring, biodegradable, lubricating fluid, that plumps and fills skin creases and wrinkles.

What Makes Restylane Different

Hyaluronic acid has long been used as a lip filler, because of its ability to lock onto and retain moisture over time. This allows it to give structure and form, filling up spaces within the tissues themselves. Restylane gel is created from a specific species of Streptococcus bacteria, which naturally ferment hyaluronic acid. Of course, Restylane is grown in sterile conditions within a lab environment, making it safe for human use. Additionally, because Restylane is not derived from animal sources, it is completely animal free.

Restylane can be used to diminish the appearance of moderate to deep facial lines. A clear gel, Restylane is injected just below the surface, where it attaches to moisture within the skin. This binding action plumps up skin surfaces by adding back the volume you had when you were younger. Being biodegradable, it will eventually diminish, requiring additional applications. Most patients find the results to last about six months.

Depending on the injection site, you may find that your skin looks younger for more than six months. In studies, 95% of patients reported that they still saw improvement in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, even after as much as 18 months following treatment. If you need help fighting the signs of facial aging for moderate to severe facial folds, creases, or deep lines, especially around the mouth and nose, Restylane may be right for you.
