As people get older, the visible signs of aging rapidly increase due to certain factors including facial expressions such as laughing and scowling, and harmful effects of the sun. These signs of aging become clearly noticeable in the forms of wrinkles and lines on the face and on the skin of other parts of the body. As the skin starts to crumple down, it begins to lose its smoothness and young appearance. If you’re seeking an effective method to revitalize your skin without having to go through a surgical procedure, then Restylane is one of the ideal options for you.

Restylane is a synthetic sugar compound created to mimic a connective tissue component that occurs naturally. It was approved for use in 2003 and has been known in the cosmetic world as a dermal filler. Restylane is fast becoming one of the most popular types of dermal filler. This synthetic sugar compound uses the body’s own moisture for retaining moisture, which corrects wrinkles and adds fullness to the skin by adding water volume to it. What makes Restylane different from collagen treatment is that it’s not made from animal fat and its results can last longer.

Restylane corrects deep folds on the cheeks to bring more volume to the face and to provide a fuller shape. For lip augmentation, it’s injected into the upper and lower lips. This beauty treatment typically doesn’t require administration of anesthesia, but when used for lip augmentation, the practitioner administers a local anesthesia. Aside from the face, Restylane can also be administered on skin of other body parts that needs treatment.
