Restylane is an injectable, gel-like filler that is used to get rid of lines around your mouth and nose, based on hyaluronic acid (HA). This is a naturally occurring molecule that acts as the body’s internal moisturizer. Young, healthy-looking skin has a lot of it. HA’s main job is to bind to and absorb water, which gives the face volume. The sun, pollution, stress, and other things cause your skin to lose HA as you get older. When you don’t have enough HA, your skin loses its shape and volume, which makes wrinkles and folds on your face.
While this is happening, collagen loss can make the problem of ageing even worse. Pockets of healthy fat that make faces look round and young can also move and get pulled downwards over time.
Dermal fillers like Restylane replace the hyaluronic acid your skin has lost in a safe and effective way. This smooths out unwanted wrinkles and folds on your face and restores the natural shape of your nose and mouth. The gel’s consistency makes up for the volume lost when fat shrinks or moves.
Restylane treatments are mostly used to fix moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, but they can also be used to fix other problems, such as:
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip lines
Many patients receiving Resytlane treatment see results that last up to a year. But you might need touch-up treatments to get the best results and keep your new look. The effects of treatment with Restylane are not permanent.
The original Restylane formula has a small amount of lidocaine to make it easier to give an injection in the area between the nose and mouth or in the lips. This filler is perfect for moderate to severe nasolabial folds because of how deep it adds volume. It is also used to add fullness to lips that have lost collagen over time or have always been thin because of natural genetics.
Like other Restylane fillers, Refyne is used to make nasolabial folds look smoother. Because it is made using a special process based on XpresHAn Technology, it is best for patients who want results that look natural even as they continue to make dynamic facial expressions. Refyne can also be used to get rid of marionette lines, which are vertical lines that appear between the corners of the mouth and the chin.
Defyne is another Restylane filler that is also made with XpresHAn Technology. It can be used to treat marionette lines and nasolabial folds, but its formula makes it best for very deep folds. To fill in these lines successfully, you need an injectable that adds enough volume to create a smooth look while still letting your face move naturally.
Due to sagging tissue, losing volume in the mid-face area can change the shape of the face not just where the cheeks are, but also further down. Resytlane Lyft restores that volume, making the cheek area rounder and fuller. It also pulls up sagging skin to keep the jawline clean and well-defined. Lyft is a versatile injectable that can also be used to add a little volume to cheeks that need it and to fill out the backs of hands that have lost so much volume that they look like bones. Of course, you can also get rid of nasolabial folds.
Treatment wit Resytlane
Even though each formula of the Restylane collection is different, their treatment sessions are all pretty much the same. Before your treatment, patients can request a numbing cream to lessen the “pinching” feeling during injection.
Most of the time, the process itself takes less than half an hour. After giving you an injection, your doctor may massage or put a cold compress on the area to reduce swelling. At the injection sites, you may feel pain, tenderness, redness, swelling, bruising, firmness, and bumps. Most of the time, these reactions are mild to moderate and go away on their own in one week or less.
How long the results last depends on which brand of Restylane is used. The steps are easy and quick, and you can see the results right away.
Restylane fillers can be used on their own or with other aesthetic treatments or with each other to get a result that would not be possible with just one injectable. Trained aesthetic medical professionals can use Restylane products to help both men and women looking for the ideal, personalized cosmetic treatment. Licensed medical practitioners can buy dermal fillers at Health Supplies Plus.
