Non-Surgical Options for Restoring Your Youthful Face: Restylane
Wrinkles begin to form as the years go by. The wrinkles transform your face from young and vibrant to older and not as attractive. If this new look frustrates you, don’t despair – you can restore your face to its former glory without requiring surgery. There are non-surgical cosmetic options such as Restylane that will restore the youthful look of your skin.
What Is Restylane?
As our body ages, our skin’s ability to absorb and retain water reduces due to multiple factors, from hormone level changes to sun exposure. This affects the skin’s ability to heal itself. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar-like molecule that is present in body tissue and helps retain water. Restylane is a form of hyaluronic acid. When Restylane is injected into the skin, it restores the skin’s ability to retain water and stay hydrated.
Restylane can be used to treat different areas of the face. For example, it can be used to fill wrinkles and smooth hollows under the eyes. It can also be used to fill acne scars or obscure early jowls. These are just a few of the uses of Restylane.
The Benefits of Restylane
Restylane is a non-animal product. It can be used on all skin types and for all skin colors without fear of allergic reactions or disease. Once the treatment is complete, you will find your face looking younger and fuller.
Duration of Treatment
Restylane treatments take only 20 to 30 minutes to complete and last for six to nine months, depending on the area treated. Lips treated with Restylane are plumped for up to six months, while laugh line erasure and cheek augmentation both last for nine months or more.
Cosmetic Procedures and Restylane
Restylane is an affordable non-surgical option to restore your facial volume. Before beginning treatment, it is important to verify if this particular procedure is covered by insurance. Most cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance.
Potential Side Effects
The side effects of this treatment are not harsh and last no more than seven days. Not every patient experiences side effects from the use of Restylane. Headaches and nausea may occur. Patients may experience slight redness and pain around the treated areas. Typically, if Restylane is used to enhance the lips, the patient experiences swelling for up to seven days.
Restylane is an excellent option to restore your face to its former beauty, but Restylane treatments are not appropriate for every person. If you suffer from any of the following, then you should inform your doctor immediately:
- Bleeding disorder
- Lidocaine allergy
- Bacterial protein allergy
Restylane is also not recommended for individuals who are under 18. If you become pregnant while you are undergoing a series of Restylane treatments, inform your physician and stop treatments until you finish breastfeeding.
