Like JUVEDERM® Restylane is a natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin. Restylane is used to correct facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Restylane can be used to augment lips, improve acne scars, and add volume to deflating cheeks and corners of the mouth.
Restylane is very safe. Restylane is made of a substance found naturally in the human skin. Consequently, Restylane is fully biocompatible, so no allergy testing is required. Restylane maintains its shape using the body’s own water. The hyaluronic molecule in Restylane is hydrophilic or “water loving.” As the hyaluronic molecules dissolve, the molecules binds to more water, which has the result of maintaining a lasting correction of the line, wrinkle or fold. How long does Restylane last? It is an excellent choice, providing lasting results for up to 6 months.
Restylane injections can be performed in any of our offices in about a half hour or less. The risk of bruising and swelling is minimal, especially with the techniques used at Facial Aesthetic Concepts. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation!
