It is a natural part of life. Our skin undergoes certain changes as we grow older. Skin gradually becomes thinner and does not appear as smooth and plump as it once did. Long before you or others begin to notice the effects of the aging process, it has actually already begun. Even in your twenties, skin starts becoming less firm and external factors like stress, smoking, or sun exposure begin to take their toll. One of the chief causes of aging is a gradual loss of facial skin volume that can make you look older externally than you feel internally. This is where Restylane® comes in.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is delivered via injection into the face for the correction of lines and wrinkles appearing there. Hyaluronic acid is the active ingredient found in this product and is mixed within a silky smooth gel that flows easily under the surface of your skin to promote enhanced facial skin volume and a reduction of lines and wrinkles.
What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance produced by your own body and found in abundance in healthy, youthful skin tissue. Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid tends to become depleted in older persons, leading to the characteristic loss of facial volume and the eventual development of wrinkles. The reason that hyaluronic acid works so well in preventing wrinkles lies in its ability to attract moisture into skin tissue. Hyaluronic acid is like a sponge when it comes to attracting water molecules.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Restylane® works by increasing facial skin thickness through the action of injected hyaluronic acid. The filler helps to reverse the process that led to the development of drier skin and lines and wrinkles. Immediately after it is injected, it goes to work to begin attracting an enormous amount of moisture within each and every skin cell in the treatment area.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your results will be immediate and long-lasting. If this is your first treatment with Restylane®, you can expect your results to last anywhere from four to six months. At that time, the product will have been mostly absorbed by your body, and you will require additional injections to maintain your wrinkle-reduction results.
