No one likes to think about getting older, let alone developing the folds and wrinkles that come with age. This can be a major blow to our self-esteem and confidence. If you want to keep your skin looking as young as possible, and match how you feel on the inside, Restylane may be just what you’re looking for.
Restylane is an injectable gel used for smoothing out the wrinkles and deep folds in the skin that appear as we age. The procedure can be performed in different locations of the body by our facial aesthetics doctor in 60619 and help you to look and feel great again.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a biodegradable gel formulation not derived from animals. It was created to simulate hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring substance found in the body that helps to provide fullness and elasticity to our skin.
Over time, hyaluronic acid levels in the body diminish, leaving our skin with less volume and an increased chance for the appearance of wrinkles and folds.
The aging seen in our faces begins when we are in our 20s. As skin firmness begins to decrease due to internal (family history and aging) and external influences (stress, tobacco use, and the sun). A reduction of the volume in the hands will also become apparent as we age, causing them to appear older.
Restylane can help correct and smooth out problem areas and keep your skin looking healthy and flawless.
Where on the body can it be used?
Restylane can be used to treat different areas of the face below the nose and around the mouth to smooth out the wrinkles and folds. These areas are the most vulnerable to tissue breakdown with basic daily activities such as smiling, chewing, and talking.
Also, exposure to the sun can also cause accelerated breakdown in these areas.
Here is a list of the most common areas Restylane is used:
- Smile lines: Lines that form and run between the nose and the edge of the mouth
- Marionette lines: Lines that form on the edges of the mouth, running down towards the jaw
- Lips: Both upper and lower lips
- Corners of the mouth: The creases that form in the corners of the mouth
- Hands: The back of the hands
Restylane injections are easy and quick with minimal recovery time. If you are ready, you can reach the level of confidence you have always dreamed of without having to wait for the results.
