If you’re looking for help to combat aging skin, Restylane injectable is one of the most popular options for smoothing away creases and fine lines. It will rejuvenate your face, and enhance facial features, without downtime. But what are the benefits of Restylane, and what areas of the face does it treat? Let’s take a look.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based injectable gel that is used to fill in wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is an element that occurs naturally in the body, and is a primary ingredient in many cosmetic creams and lotions. Restylane is recommended for use in patients 21 years and older.
Restylane injections can be done conveniently in the lunch hour, without any disruption to normal activities. When injected, Restylane gradually plumps the skin to create a more youthful appearance. There may be some swelling or other minor discomfort after treatment, but this typically only lasts a few hours.
