Filler - Restylane
Restylane is a dermal filler that is used to add volume and fullness to the skin, and is primarily used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. The active ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is found in the body.
One of the major benefits of Restylane is that it provides immediate and long-lasting results. Unlike other injectable treatments such as Botox and Dysport, which work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles, Restylane works by adding volume and fullness to the skin. This means that the results of the treatment can be seen immediately, and can last for up to 12 months.
Another benefit of Restylane is that it is a versatile treatment option. Restylane can be used to treat a wide range of concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, and volume loss in the face. It can also be used to enhance the lips, cheeks, and other areas of the face.
Restylane is a minimally invasive treatment, which means that there is minimal downtime associated with the procedure. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment. Additionally, Restylane is a safe and effective treatment option, with minimal risk of complications.
The procedure involves several small injections of the dermal filler into the area to be treated. The procedure takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour, and the results can be seen immediately. The treatment may require a touch-up session, depending on the individual's needs and desired result.
It's important to note that Restylane is different from Botox and Dysport, which are both neuromodulator injectables that work by temporarily paralyzing the muscles that cause wrinkles. Botox and Dysport are primarily used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the upper face, such as the forehead and around the eyes, while Restylane is primarily used to add volume and fullness to the skin, and is used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the lower face, such as the cheeks and around the mouth.
