Restylane is widely considered one of the most effective hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers because it comes in numerous formulas. Each Restylane formula is specifically curated to address different concerns on different facial regions, such as the lips, cheeks, nasolabial folds, etc. Joli Beautique further calibrates the dosage and treatment according to your specific skin type and goals to ensure natural results with no obvious signs of cosmetic work.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a prescription dermal filler made of the primary ingredient hyaluronic acid. When injected under targeted facial tissues, Restylane enhances facial volume and fills in the wrinkles and fine lines. It restores your skin’s depleting hyaluronic acid reserves, thereby reversing the signs of aging.
Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
How Does Restylane Work?
To understand how Restylane works, you must understand how hyaluronic acid works.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring component with the amazing capacity to hold up to 1,000x its own weight in water. This quality allows hyaluronic acid to make your skin look luscious, supple, and dewy. When you’re young, your skin produces hyaluronic acid in abundance, which is why your skin feels soft and luscious.
As you grow older, your skin’s depleting hyaluronic acid reserves lead to wrinkles, fine lines, nasolabial folds, and facial hollows. Restylane injections restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves temporarily, thereby reversing the signs of aging. Furthermore, strategically injected Restylane can also enhance your genetically inherited features.
Side Effects of Restylane
Restylane carries the same side effects as most injectable treatments — mild and temporary redness, pain, itching, swelling, tenderness, and bruising on the injection sites. However, the side effects fade away in a few days, and the risk of major complications is negligible.
What to expect with treatment?
You may feel a little pinch as the injection pierces your skin, but there’s no (or minimal) pain. If you’re anxious, we can provide a numbing gel to ensure optimal comfort.
Which Restylane filler is right for me?
Everyone has different needs and goals. As such, your cosmetic injector will discuss your goals and choose the ideal Restylane filler for your specific cosmetic concerns and treatment areas.
When will I see the results? How long do the results last?
Restylane produces immediate results that last for up to 12 months with optimal treatment, depending on the formulation used, treatment area, and other factors. You can repeat the treatment to maintain the results.
