Restylane is a facial filler made from hyaluronic acid to help reverse the effects of aging on the face. This filler is injected under the surface of the facial skin to help smoothen out wrinkles and restore lost volume in the facial tissues.
As we age, the collagen in our skin reduces and causes loss of volume. This is very apparent for many on their faces. Restylane is an elective cosmetic procedure that involves injecting the filler in targeted areas. This can plump up the cheeks, lips, and even the area around the lips, prone to tissue loss resulting in fine wrinkles.
Restylane is for adults over the age of 21. A well-trained medical professional must perform injection to avoid any mistakes that can cause side-effects. The professional administering the treatment should be well-versed not only about the product but also about the human skin and facial tissues.
Cosmetic procedures and fillers are known to be a little on the higher side compared to more basic medicines or creams one can get over the counter.
The cost of Restylane depends on the size of the product you choose. They come in 2 sizes and are generally expressed as per syringe cost. The FDA-approved fillers cost anywhere between $400 – $800 depending on the size and variation of the product. Different variations are offered in this family of products, which are used as fillers to help with skin aging.
How Much Will It Cost You
The overall cost of the Restylane treatment depends on which part of the face is being filled, how much is needed and how many sittings are required. As the product’s price is expressed as cost per syringe, the overall cost depends on how many syringes you need.
A well-trained professional will look at your face properly and assess the areas that need filling. Once both of you discuss and decide the target areas, your doctor or consultant will be able to tell you how many injections are required.
Sometimes, if the damage is severe or the skin is too loose, one might require more than one sitting. In such a case, the number of syringes per sitting needs to be determined, and the total number of sittings will also be factored in to derive at the complete cost.
Restylane is a filler for the facial tissue, which can go down as one age. This is not a one-shot treatment, where once injected, you can forget about it and live the rest of your life free of wrinkles and fine lines.
Depending on the level of damage, you may be required to get the filler once in a few years to maintain the full cheeks and wrinkle-free skin. The more areas you wish to target, the more Restylane will be required.
Checking with your doctor about the frequency of treatment required in the future will give you an idea about how much you may have to spend in the future for this particular treatment.
Cosmetic treatments can be considered expensive because there are many over-the-counter solutions and products for almost all concerns. However, procedures like Restylane or any filler will have a much better effect than basic creams and other topical treatments.
These hyaluronic fillers mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in our bodies to make the fillers look very natural. With the right product and regular maintenance, one can keep those fine lines away and smile a beautiful, youthful smile.
