Combating Signs of Aging with Restylane

The aging process can leave your face looking tired and hollow. This usually happens due to loss of muscle, fat, and even bone tissue. The natural volume and smoothness are lost over the years resulting in lines or wrinkles on the face. Fortunately, there is help available for anyone who is looking to reverse the negative effects of aging.


Slowing the Aging Process


Hyaluronic acid is an element that is present in connective tissue. Just like elastin and collagen, this essential component in the skin reduces over time, resulting in loss of volume and leading to the appearance of lines, folds, and wrinkles. If you are looking to reduce aging signs and regain a youthful appearance, you can find a solution. While some people have turned to surgical procedures to find answers, there are some non-surgical options.



Using Dermal Fillers


Using dermal fillers can reverse the signs of aging without surgery. Dermal fillers, such as Restylane®, can help combat these signs. The fillers work by adding volume to the face, resulting in a youthful appearance. This non-surgical solution is safe, effective, and helps smooth wrinkles, shape facial contours, and sculpt lips. It can help get rid of the lines around the mouth.


Reasons to Use Restylane


Restylane is one of the most effective dermal fillers on the market. This FDA-approved product is a clear, synthetic gel formulated with hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that gives the skin its elasticity and fullness. Restylane treatments add volume and help to reduce some signs of aging within minutes, making the skin look more supple immediately after treatment. If you’re looking to get rid of aging signs or prevent them from appearing, this treatment can help.


How Restylane Works


Restylane is great for treating moderate-to-severe folds and facial wrinkles. It can be used for lip enhancement where people have lost lip volume or for those with naturally thin lips. Restylane Silk is used to correct lines and wrinkles around the mouth and for lip augmentation. Many smokers can benefit from this treatment because it can help restore volume to the midface and cheeks by addressing moderate-to-severe facial folds and wrinkles. It can also be injected into the hands to deal with a volume deficiency.


The Treatment Duration


It is important to realize that just like with other dermal fillers, Restylane is a temporary treatment solution. While the results are different with each patient, the effects often last three to four months. Some individuals experience results lasting much longer. The effects will depend on several factors, including the amount injected, the area treated, and the depth of the injection. In most cases, fillers fade faster to inactive people than in those who are less active.

It is important to get dermal fillers done by an experienced dermatologist. This will help to ensure the best results in the rejuvenation of your appearance. The best professionals know exactly where to inject the Restylane to ensure the greatest impact.
