Restylane is a type of facial filler used to correct and minimize the appearance of wrinkles. It is primarily composed of hyaluronic acid, and commonly used to correct areas around the lips, cheeks, and eyes.
As a person ages, the levels of collagen and elastin in the skin fall, which ultimately leads to sagging skin and wrinkles. Restylane injections add volume to these areas, and give it a plump and youthful appearance. It also helps in improving water retention in the skin tissue, which keeps up the volume.
- The fillers are injected in target areas in a quick and easy procedure.
- The healing is quick, with minimal bruising and swelling that resolves within a week.
- The effects are immediate with full results visible after about a week of the procedure.
