Are you getting older and feeling unhappy with the appearance of your skin due to the development of fine lines and wrinkles, folds, creases, and lost facial volume? If so, you are not alone. These common skin conditions, while due primarily to the aging process, can be minimized or even reversed in some cases with Restylane®.
What Causes Skin Aging?
Before looking at Restylane®, it may be helpful to understand why skin ages in the first place. Your body produces a substance known as hyaluronic acid that helps skin become moist and radiant. This substance has a property that attracts and binds water molecules within soft tissues like your skin. This makes your skin moist, supple, and more resilient to the effects of environmental damage.
As you age, your body produces less and less hyaluronic acid, which means each skin cell begins losing moisture. Picture a balloon filled with water. As water is released from the balloon, the surface of the balloon becomes flatter and wrinkles begin forming on its surface. This is the effect that hyaluronic acid depletion has on each skin cell. The result is skin that is dryer and displays more signs of wrinkles.
How can Restylane® Help?
The good news is that this process can be reversed, at least temporarily, using Restylane®. Restylane® is a gel containing hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin to restore proper hyaluronic acid levels in your skin cells. It goes to work immediately to “re-inflate” your skin cells, adding volume, and smoothing away fine lines and wrinkles on the surface of your skin. As a result, your face will appear more youthful and radiant
Restylane® treatments offer a safe and easy method of staying in control of your appearance. Just one treatment offers immediate results that can last for an extended amount of time if you follow your treatment plan. Restylane® has been extensively studied to support its efficacy and safety.
Since you are only replacing your own body’s lost hyaluronic acid, the results of Restylane® treatment appear very natural. You are not structurally altering your face in an unnatural way; you are simply turning back the clock to a younger version of yourself.
What can Restylane® Treat?
Restylane® is safe and effective for restoring facial contours, softening facial lines, and smoothing wrinkles. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of your cheeks, lips, jawline, and chin by restoring volume and fullness.
Restylane® is used to:
- Soften laugh lines and lip lines

- Smooth away unsightly folds and wrinkles
- Add volume to the lips

Are there any Side Effects?
