As we age, so does our face. Unfortunately, signs of facial aging are typically quite prominent. Stress, the sun, pollution, and gravity can also create these signs of aging, making us look much older than we actually are.

If you’re dealing with moderate and harsh age lines, you may be looking for a way to treat them effectively. Topical cosmetic off-the-shelf products such as age-reversing creams, lotions, and serums can only do so much to hide the signs of aging.

These days, people are finding dermal fillers and injectables to be much more effective when it comes to eliminating the appearance of fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face. Restylane is one such dermal filler.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that has been approved by the FDA. It contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body. HA is biodegradable and is not derived from animals. As a result of this, it is much less likely to cause any sort of allergic reaction.

Restylane’s synthetic HA is derived from a certain type of bacteria called Streptococcus, which is made in a laboratory using biotechnology and natural fermentation. A clear gel is then manufactured and loaded into a syringe.

Restylane is administered to the patient in the form of an injection that delivered controlled amounts of HA directly into the face. HA helps to smooth away fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face by hydrating the skin and boosting volume.

It can be used on many parts of the face, including the lips, cheeks, chin, and under the eyes. This filler is able to address the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, marionette lines, smoker’s lines, and thin lips.

How Does Restylane Work?

Once injected into the patient’s skin, the Restylane gel attracts and traps water molecules in the skin tissues, leading to an increase in moisture. This keeps the skin supple and voluminous.

The Restylane gel is gradually processed by the body in small quantities until it absorbs. It doesn’t harm the body, even if small residue is left behind in the body.

Restylane injections provide immediate results in the form of boosted volume and smoothness. Its results typically last for up to six months or longer. People whose metabolic rate is slower might even enjoy the results of Restylane for longer than six months.
