If you are interested in a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment, there are a variety of options to choose from including dermal fillers. Restylane is a popular and effective cosmetic filler that is widely used for facial rejuvenation. But what areas of the face can be treated with Restylane.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a flexible dermal filler that is formulated with hyaluronic acid, and is used to correct deep lines and wrinkles on the face. Hyaluronic acid is a basic element in the skin’s connective tissue, and it helps to prop up the underlying structure.
Restylane is made of non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, which means that it is not derived from animals, so no allergy test is needed prior to treatment. Restylane is slowly absorbed by the body over time.
How it works
A tiny needle is used to inject Restylane into the soft tissue of the skin. Treatment takes 15-20 minutes, and the results last anywhere from 8-18 months. This depends on how much product was injected and where it was placed.
What areas of the face can be treated with Restylane?
Restylane is particularly beneficial for treating wrinkles in the lower half of the face. This includes nasolabial folds (lines that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth), and marionette lines (lines from the corner of the mouth to the side of the chin). Restylane can also be used to add volume to the lips. After Restylane treatment the skin looks plumper and refreshed (click here to read more).
