Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler treatment for patients looking to improve volume and fullness to their skin and lips. This skin injection procedure utilizes a gel solution made from hyaluronic acid — a substance that is broken down naturally in the body and is formulated to act with the body’s own production of hyaluronic acid to restore youthful facial contours. Restylane has been used in more than 15 million treatments around the world and is particularly effective at visibly reducing deeper wrinkles and folds, such as marionette lines (the lines that run down from the corners of your mouth) and the nasolabial folds (the lines that run down from your nose to the corners of your mouth).
Benefits of Restylane
Patients receiving Restylane treatments at our Russellville, AR, practice enjoy the following benefits:
- Quick and Easy. Depending on the area to be treated, the procedure lasts around 15 minutes, and there is no downtime. You may resume your normal activities right away. As with any injectable treatment, it is possible for you to experience slight bruising or swelling for a day or so after your appointment.
- Minimal discomfort. The needles we use for Restylane injections are very small. However, for your comfort, the area of treatment is numbed before the procedure with local anesthetic or a topical cream.
- Effective and immediate results. With Restylane, results are immediately noticeable. Patients can expect the effects of Restylane to last between six and nine months for wrinkle treatments. For lips, the effects last around three to four months.
As we age, we lose the natural collagen and elastin in our skin, our skin becomes thinner, and lines and wrinkles begin to form. Facial fillers like Restylane are most often used to restore lost volume in the skin. The result is a reduction of lines and wrinkles and a fresher, more youthful appearance. Restylane injections at our practice in Russellville, AR, are quick, safe, and sanitary.
