What is Restylane and Restylane Silk?
Restylane is made from non-animal-based hylauronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar-like substance found in your own skin. As we age, the hylauronic acid in our tissue diminishes, resulting in lines and wrinkles. Restylane, like Collagen or fat injections, can be used to restore volume to areas of the face to create a fuller, more youthful look. Since Restylane binds to water, it has a soft and natural consistency.
How do they work?
Restylane is injected into facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (those lines from the side of the mouth to the nose), marionette lines (the grooves that pull the mouth down at the corners) and hollows under the eyes. It can also be used to enhance thin lips, minimize vertical lip lines and to help reduce the feathering of lipstick onto the skin. Since it can be accurately placed within these areas, a customized lip can be created according to your preference.
Treatment results from Restylane typically lasts 6 months, and beyond for some patients. No skin test is needed, so you can start your treatment at your first visit. Treatments are repeated as needed. Lip enhancement can cause significant swelling for 48 hours. Treatment of other facial areas can also be associated with some swelling and bruising. Icing can help minimize these side effects. Without ongoing treatments, Restylane is gradually absorbed by the body, and your face returns to its original contours.
