What is Restylane®?
Restylane® in an injectable hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can effectively correct facial wrinkles and fine lines. It is also an excellent injectable lip augmentation option. This treatment is sold in over 65 countries and has given countless patients beautiful, rejuvenating results.
How Does it Work?
This core component of this injectable is hyaluronic acid, a compound that is naturally occurring within the body. When injected into an area of dermal tissue that has suffered from volume loss, hyaluronic acid can infuse the region with additional plumpness and fullness.
As soon as hyaluronic acid enters the dermal tissue, it begins to attract water molecules to this area. These water molecules bring volume to the treatment area that both corrects the signs of aging and enriches it with moisture.
What can it Treat?
Restylane® is one of the most versatile hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers available today; that’s why we’re proud to offer this product as part of our broad range of dermal fillers.
Some of the most popular areas that our patients have treated with Restylane® include the:
- Nasolabial folds
What is a Restylane® Treatment Like?
During treatment, Restylane® is carefully injected into the treatment areas using an ultra-fine needle. Each Restylane® treatment takes less than an hour to complete, and can bring results that last between 4-6 months. While this is the average time that most injections last, treatment results in the lips have been known to last up to a year in some patients.
After receiving injections, most patients experience some extent of mild side effects. These include swelling, discomfort, and redness. Fortunately, these usually resolve themselves within three days of receiving treatment.
Restylane® is an excellent treatment that can be used to correct some of the most popular cosmetic concerns that people experience today. If you’re looking for a place to receive Restylane® in the Worcester or Chelmsford, MA areas, contact us today and schedule a consultation appointment.
