Restylane® is a popular injectable filler that naturally enhances your beauty by diminishing the appearance of age-related blemishes. It is an excellent option for patients who are tired of masking their imperfections with expensive beauty products. This filler produces immediate results, and you might be able to maintain your youthful new appearance for months with the proper aftercare. Here is a closer look at just a few of the benefits of Restylane® injections.
Where Did My Blemishes Come From?
When you are younger, your skin has the ability to protect itself from damage. Proteins like keratin and elastin will keep it smooth and firm no matter what type of damage is taking place. Unfortunately, there may come a point when your body can no longer produce an ample supply of those proteins. That can result in some of the imperfections we now associate with the aging process. Issues such as crow’s feet and smile lines aren’t dangerous, but many people find them to be unsightly. Covering the blemishes with makeup might work for a short period of time, but you will need to consider professional treatments if you want long-term changes.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
The primary ingredient inside Restylane® is a powerful substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA). Your body naturally produces this substance to keep your skin firm and healthy, but it tends to disappear as you grow older. After years of exhaustive research, doctors discovered that they could make concentrated doses of HA for cosmetic treatments. When this substance is injected into your skin, it will stimulate your body’s healing response. In addition to adding volume, it also triggers the production of keratin, elastin, and collagen.
What Can Be Treated?
Most age-related blemishes can be treated with this dermal filler. That includes crow’s feet, frown lines, smile lines, and sunken cheeks. It is also a good option for sagging under the eyes and under-projected cheekbones. The best way to see if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation with our team. We can help you come up with a comprehensive treatment plan that will leave you looking years younger. Restylane® is just one of the many products and services that we offer our clients.
Your Treatment Protocol
This procedure can usually be carried out in a single appointment, but you might need to schedule two or more appointments if you would like to treat multiple areas. When you first arrive at the office, one of our team members will clean and mark all of the treatment sites. After the appointment, you must avoid strenuous activities for a few hours so that the product has time to settle.
