For individuals wishing to treat or reduce the appearance of fine lines wrinkles and add volume to their lips, Restylane injections may be the right choice for you.
Restylane is a derma-filler that replaces lost volume and helps restore youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid. In the human body, natural hyaluronic acid provides volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane has been modified slightly to last longer than the body’s own hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is produced by a biotechnical process. Restylane is hydrophilic or “water loving.” The hydrophilic nature of these hyaluronic acid molecules and their three dimensional structure allows them to bind many times their own weight in water. As hyaluronic acid begins to degrade, each molecule binds to more water which helps to maintain its volume for about six months.
Restylane contains no animal proteins. This limits any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Interested in Restylane? Please contact us to schedule a free consultation.
