Restore Lost Facial Volume with Restylane

Restore Lost Facial Volume with Restylane

As people grow older, the underlying support structure for the skin starts to break down. As the body begins producing less collagen, deep creases and hollows may appear at the nasolabial folds. Some people even experience the development of static wrinkles at and around the lips. These are signs of volume loss. Fortunately, facial hollows and creases resulting from volume loss can be successfully remedied through the use of non-surgical dermal filler technologies. Restylane® is a fast-acting, FDA-approved solution that is capable of turning back the hands of time. This formula can fill in facial hollows and creases without the need for incisions, tissue removal or excessive downtime.

How Restylane® Works

Restylane® is largely comprised of a naturally-occurring acid known as hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found at the deepest layers of the skin, where it provides structural support. When injected into areas experiencing volume loss, this acid attracts water from other parts of the body, thereby having a plumping effect. Moreover, because this acid is already naturally present within the body, it can be recognized and absorbed over time. As such, Restylane® is capable of producing impressive, yet temporary results. The treatments can be safely repeated once or twice a year to enjoy ongoing benefits.

What to Expect During a Restylane® Treatment

Restylane® injections involve an outpatient procedure performed in the comfort of our office. During this treatment, the solution is skillfully injected into areas showing noticeable signs of volume loss. Once these injections are complete, the treatment area may be lightly massaged to ensure that the solution has been evenly distributed for a smooth and natural-looking finish. After the treatment session is complete, patients are free to leave and can immediately resume their normal schedules. This makes Restylane® a convenient treatment option for people with busy schedules.

Patients can look forward to a noticeable decrease in facial hollows and creases as soon as they leave our office. Additional improvements can be expected over the following two weeks as the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® binds with the skin cells at the foundation of the dermis to provide greater skin support and increased facial fullness.
