You’ve probably heard of Restylane or read about it in beauty magazines, but you may not know exactly What is Restylane or what it does. We’ll give you the scoop on this amazing product and all the potential benefits of its use here.
Restylane is an FDA-approved injectable gel that is made up of hyaluronic acid (HA). It’s used to plump and fill areas of the face): lips, folds on the sides of the mouth, under-eye dark circles, and cheeks are just a few examples of areas that can be treated with it.
If you think it sounds scary to inject something into your body, consider that HA is a natural part of our bodies, to begin with. It is a sugar-like molecule that can bind to and hold approximately 1,000 times its weight in water. This gives it amazing plumping and filling power! If you’re still skeptical, think of it another way. A baby’s skin has a ton of HA compared to an adult’s. Over time, we lose the ability to make HA easily and we also lose what we have due to environmental exposure and aging. Look at your own baby picture. Wouldn’t it be nice to regain those plump, rounded cheeks and smooth-looking skin? HA fillers like Restylane can help you do just that!
The HA that’s in Restylane is non-animal-based. There is no potential for an allergic reaction and no testing required before your treatment – pretty much anyone can enjoy the benefits of this HA-based filler.
Another bonus of Restylane treatment is that while it adds back volume and replenishes your skin’s HA stores that have been lost over time, it also helps stimulate your body to make more of its own collagen and elastin. The benefits of your treatment can last for an extended period of time and often get better with repeated treatments. This not only keeps you looking younger, but it can also even make you look better than you did years ago! Call us today to learn more about the Restylane family of products.
