The Science behind Restylane Treatments
Restylane is a dermal filler that utilizes the skin benefits of hyaluronic acid to deliver stellar results to the user. Restylane is an effective treatment for addressing fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth and the nose. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid gets to work immediately to offer quick results.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid in gel form. It is injected into the skin at greater depth. It attracts water molecules inside the skin to instantly fill the treatment area. The result is a smooth layer of skin that looks youthful and rejuvenated..
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that already exists in the body. It keeps the joints and the skin safe and hydrated. Hyaluronic acid has the amazing ability to attract and hold moisture in the skin. With renewed and adequate hydration, the aging skin begins to look supple and healthy.
The skin can soak up the hydration and look refreshed, toned, and plump. Hyaluronic acid boosts moisture in the skin as per its characteristic. It is this property of hyaluronic acid that has made it an essential component in the cosmetic industry and rightly so.
Hyaluronic acid attaches to water molecules to continually maintain skin volume. The results can last as long as it remains in the skin. Since, it is a naturally-occurring substance in the body; eventually it will get absorbed into the skin.
A Restylane treatment involves selecting the appropriate injection sites, identifying the requisite amount of the filler material, and injecting the filler into the skin. The results can appear instantly and continue to improve over the course of time.
Quick Recovery and Natural Results
Since Restylane is a cosmetic filler treatment, the entire process is quick and painless. Some amount of swelling is possible but it resolves quickly. The filler is injected deep into the skin layers that have very few nerves. With fewer nerve endings, there is minimal to no pain when you receive the injections. You can resume your normal routine right after a treatment session.
Since the filler material consists of hyaluronic acid, it also ensures that the results provided by Restylane treatments look completely natural. Its use doesn’t affect one’s natural facial expressions. Your skin will appear smoother, healthier, and much more youthful.
The Benefits of Restylane Treatments
The way hyaluronic acid is used in various Restylane products helps address specific concerns. Fine particles work very well in reducing or eliminating fine lines. Medium-sized particles can correct moderate to severe creases and folds. Larger particles can effectively smoothen out deep wrinkles and add greater volume to the skin.
You can use specific Restylane products to remove wrinkles, enhance your lips, or add volume to your cheeks. Restylane is a safe treatment as it contains no toxins or harmful chemicals.
