Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated, like your body’s own naturally produced HA, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from nose toward the corners of mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
Why Restylane Dermal Fillers?
Natural-looking volume and definition.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and tissue elasticity. HA includes a molecule that is a natural structural component of skin, which is why the body readily accepts it. What makes it so useful in dermal fillers is its ability to absorb and retain moisture. Restylane injections help in providing this essential HA in a stabilized form so that it is longer lasting.
What sets Restylane injections apart is the fact that it is a fully degradable, natural substance. These injections enable you to immediately restore what you have lost over the years in a fast office procedure.
Restylane and Restylane Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
- Quick treatment (less than 30 minutes)
- Results that may last up to 12 months
Non-surgical lip enhancement.
The lips and the lines around the mouth, like other areas of the face, show signs of aging as you get older. This often results in lip thinning, lost shape and an increase in vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane products.
The lip augmentation substance is administered in the form of an injection. Lidocaine makes the injection much more comfortable. The gel, made out of hyaluronic acid, is the main ingredient in the Restylane filler. This type of acid is found in your body, and it’s responsible for the elasticity and smoothness of your skin.
How is Restylane Lyft different from Restylane?
First and only FDA-approved filler indicated to provide lift to cheeks, adding volume to correct and smooth smile lines.
Results that generally cannot be achieved with over-the-counter cosmetic products, Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid gel filler that acts deeper in the skin to promote anti-aging. More advanced than the original Restylane in its use, thanks to the largest gel particles. The skin volume is restored promptly and more efficiently, due to its powerful formula and exceptional properties.
Injected into the deeper layer of skin, below the dermis into the subcutis, or subcutaneous tissue. As a denser filler, Restylane Lyft adds more volume to restore more youthful-looking contours to the skin’s surface.
What happens to our skin as we age?
Our skin changes as we age, becoming thinner, losing fat, and no longer appearing as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal and external factors.
WHY IS HYALURONIC ACID SO IMPORTANT?
The elasticity and suppleness of young skin is largely due to the huge amounts of hyaluronic acid. Over time, this essential component decreases, which results in visible aging signs. This is because hyaluronic acid is needed for retaining or binding water. When your skin is unable to retain water, it not only becomes thinner and drier but also incapable of natural rejuvenation thus causing frown lines, under the eye hollows.
HYALURONIC ACID & YOUTHFUL SKIN APPEARANCE
The dermis layer of the skin contains two important protein fibers, elastin, and collagen, which float in hyaluronic acid. When you are young, you have lots of hyaluronic acid, which is a great support molecule for maintaining a youthful skin. With age and exposure to various factors like pollution and sun, all three essential components are drastically reduced, resulting in everything from under the eye hollows to all kinds of lines.
