Diminish wrinkles and aging lines of the face
Restylane is a FDA-approved dermal filler made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane is contraindicated:
- in patients with severe allergies, including allergies to gram positive bacterial proteins
- in patients with bleeding disorders
- for implantation in anatomical spaces other than the dermis or sub mucosal implantation for lip augmentation
If you are like most people, you've noticed that as you age, your facial appearance changes.
While most people are aware of how repeated facial expressions (like smiling or frowning), sun exposure and hormonal changes may cause noticeable lines and wrinkles, many are not aware of the role that hyaluronic acid plays in the aging process.
As we age, our skin begins to lose hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for maintaining moisture in the skin. It is this moisture that helps hydrate the skin and creates facial volume. Hydration, volume, and elasticity (from collagen) result in a youthful, healthy-looking appearance.
The decreased production of hyaluronic acid and collagen over time causes a loss of firmness, volume and elasticity, often resulting in a sagging or more wrinkled facial appearance. Some common examples are the sagging you may see in your cheeks, lower face, jaw-line, and chin. Your skin may also appear thinner and look less smooth due to prominent lines and wrinkles.
There is a way to help replace lost volume, define facial contours and achieve a more youthful look with the Restylane family of injectable gels.
Whether you're interested in reducing the signs of aging or enhancing your facial features, the Restylane family of products may provide treatment options tailored to your individual appearance goals. You can instantly add volume to smooth lines and wrinkles or help define your facial features such as your lips, cheeks, and jawline.
