Restylane Is a Popular Dermal Filler

Published on September 21, 2018

Creases and fine lines are causes of mental anguish for many people. It’s only natural to want to retain your youthful looks for as long as you can. Restylane has made it fast and easy to maintain a wrinkle-free appearance.


Restylane is an FDA-approved method of smoothing out lines and creases on the skin. It is a gel-like substance that contains an ingredient called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in the body.

Another positive aspect of Restylane is that it is not sourced from animals and is completely biocompatible, meaning the likelihood of allergic reactions is quite low. It is produced in a sterile environment to reduce any risks of infection or serious side effects.

Restylane is designed to be used by people who are 21 or older. Results last for six to nine months after the date of injection, and touch-ups may be available.

The Benefits of Restylane

Restylane bestows a number of benefits to its user:

• It creates a more youthful appearance.
• It fills minor to moderate lines and wrinkles (especially effective around the eyes, nose, and mouth).
• When used on the lips, it creates a more sensual, pronounced pout by lending volume and definition.
• Since hyaluronic acid is not derived from any animals, people with allergies can use Restylane.
• The results are natural-looking and long-lasting.
• It is a very short and convenient procedure.
• Since there is no downtime, patients can return to work immediately.

Who Is Restylane For?

People who are looking to smooth away medium-depth wrinkles and folds make great candidates for Restylane. It is also used by people who want to treat minor skin depressions. The results are subtle, so it may not be ideal for people who are looking to fill deep-set wrinkles and folds.

Pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding should avoid all dermal fillers. People who have recently taken blood thinners or have a bleeding disorder should also avoid all dermal fillers.

Some people have bad allergic reactions to certain chemicals; these people should check with their doctors before proceeding with any medicinal treatments, including Restylane.

Side Effects of Restylane

The side effects of Restylane are minimal and minor when experienced. They include temporary redness, tenderness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites; these can be easily concealed using makeup.

Where Do I Get Restylane Treatments?

It’s important to go to a board-certified plastic surgeon for Restylane. This is a prescription drug that is not supposed to be sold without a prescription by a physician. It is not a do-it-yourself product. This is because only a qualified medical professional will have the training, experience, and skill to administer Restylane safely and effectively.

Restylane is a quick and safe option to treat creases and fine lines. It is a marvel of modern medicine and is worth exploring for the benefits and peace of mind you can gain by using it.
