Wrinkles are a natural progression of aging skin. The skin is comprised of 3 layers: the epidermis, the dermis, and the subcutaneous tissue. The epidermis is the outermost layer of the skin, and provides a tough layer of protection from outside elements. The dermis is the second layer, and provides structure to the skin. Lastly, the subcutaneous tissue is the bottom layer of skin that stores fat cells to provide insulation. As you age, your body will produce fewer cells, which will lead to the thinning of the different layers of skin. Wrinkles are a by-product of this occurrence. Restylane rejuvenates the skin by supplying it with fluids lost in aging, reducing the occurrence of wrinkles to restore your skin’s youthful appearance.
Restylane Replenishes the Skin by Providing Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a fluid found naturally in our body. HA hydrates the skin and gives it a fuller appearance. As your body ages, the amount of HA found in the skin will decrease. Restylane contains enough HA to replenish the affected skin’s levels. This will provide the skin with a more youthful, wrinkle-free appearance. The HA in Restylane is a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA), guaranteeing that the HA is not derived from any animals.
Restylane Treatment Achieves Great Results Without Surgery
If there are areas in your face and body that have manifested wrinkles due to aging, smoking, or overexposure of sun light, then a Restylane treatment might be for you. Restylane could also be applied to treat facial scars, wounds, burns, and ulcers. The treatment is performed by injecting Restylane in affected areas to smooth out and restore healthy skin. Application of Restylane achieves instantly noticeable results that can last for over a year.
Restylane Could Also be Used as a Lip Filler
For patients over the age of 21, Restylane is a great way to achieve fuller lips without surgery. The HA in Restylane attracts and binds water molecules to help maintain more supple lips. The use of Restylane has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) since 2003.
