As we age, so does our facial skin. This is something that we cannot control. Unfortunately, all the telltale signs of aging show directly on the face. Other factors such as stress, sun, environmental pollution, external and physical elements, gravity etc. affect our faces, making us look much older than we actually may be.
Cosmetic, off-the-shelf products such as anti-aging and anti-wrinkle lotions, serums and creams, and lotions can help reverse the signs of aging only to a certain extent.
Nowadays people are resorting to dermal fillers and injectables to eliminate the appearance of fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face and make them look more youthful. Restylane is one such type of dermal filler.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a type of dermal filler or injectable that contains HA or hyaluronic acid – a naturally occurring substance in the human body. HA is biodegradable and is not derived from animals but is a naturally occurring substance in humans.
Restylane has also been approved by the FDA, or the Food and Drug Administration of the United States of America. Why people love Restylane is because it utilizes a substance that is found naturally in the human body to boost the volume and appearance of the skin.
Restylane is administered to the patient in the form of an injection that injects controlled amounts of HA or hyaluronic acid directly into the face. HA helps by smoothing away fine lines, folds, and wrinkles from the face and plumping up the skin, hydrating it, and boosting volume. It can be injected into any part of the face such as the lips, cheeks, chin, under the eyes, and forehead.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is a gel made up of HA that is derived from a strain of bacteria called Streptococcus. It is made in a laboratory using biotechnology and natural fermentation. A clear gel is then manufactured and loaded into a syringe.
Once injected into the patient’s skin, the Restylane gel binds with the skin’s tissue to trap water molecules in the skin and retain moisture and maintain volume. HA works by keeping the skin supple and voluminous by keeping it hydrated all the time.
The Restylane gel works by locking in moisture and is gradually processed by the body in small quantities until it is completely absorbed. Restylane does not harm the body even if small residues are left behind in the body.
It provides immediate results which last up to 6 months or longer. People whose metabolic rate is slower might even enjoy the results of Restylane longer than 6 months.
