Filler compounds add volume and also stimulate new tissue growth. This makes them especially popular as a cosmetic treatment for brittle, wrinkled skin. Restylane® is one of the most commonly used gel compounds for smoothing facial lines. It can be injected in the cheeks, near the corners of the mouth and around the perimeter of the lips.
This injectable filler compound contains hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient. Hyaluronic acid brings moisture to the area beneath the skin and therefore stretches the skin tighter. It also acts as a kick-start mechanism for stronger supportive tissue. If you are looking for a non-surgical method to restore your face to its more youthful appearance, Restylane® may be just what you’re looking for.
About Dermal Fillers
These come in several different types. Some fillers contain fat, meaning that the treated area is given extra volume by placing fatty tissue beneath the skin. Other fillers contain chemicals that act as growth factors. Platelet-rich plasma is an example. Some dermal fillers contain acids that draw in moisture and plump the treatable areas. This is how Restylane® works.
Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body, but most of it is used to keep organic tissue moist. Some of our organs hold their moisture because of this acid. Very little of the acid is drawn to the subdermal supportive tissues. Restylane® injections help to add volume to the tissues beneath the skin, and this procedure also allows more nutrients to remain in these areas, meaning that collagen production might increase.
How the Treatment Works
Before we perform this type of treatment, we consult with our client and determine the most suitable injection sites. Depending on the areas of concern, we may treat only the lip area, wrinkled skin near the mouth or wrinkled areas around the eyes.
The treatment itself usually takes only about 30 minutes. The positive results last for up to six months or more. Even though the solution is eventually flushed from the body or redistributed by the lymphatic system, the increased volume continues for quite some time.
Advantages Over Other Facial Treatments
Some of the abrasive skin resurfacing treatments involve spraying with crystals or the applying of harsh chemicals in order to induce skin peeling. Restylane® does not affect the surface of the skin directly. It also doesn’t use high heat as in the case of intense pulsed light therapy or laser therapy.
