Getting Restylane Injections Reduces Wrinkles

The skin is the body’s largest organ. It protects every other organ and works tirelessly to keep you in proper equilibrium. It is a barrier for the germs, infections, and other contaminants that may wreak havoc if they enter the body.

The skin is exposed to the environment, so it takes a fair bit of damage on a daily basis. Aging, stressors, and other factors like this contribute to the formation of lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. To rejuvenate and revitalize the skin, many people come in for Restylane injections.

Restylane

The active ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid. It is used to smooth out wrinkles and other facial lines. It can effectively lift the skin in such a way that it restores a youthful appearance.

That may sound artificial and unnatural, but hyaluronic acid is actually a substance that is produced inside the body. It is a natural substance that is part of the skin’s structural components. It is, in fact, found all over the body, wherever there is connective tissue.

Hyaluronic acid is the most potent material known to man when it comes to its ability to hold moisture. One gram of hyaluronic acid can retain six liters of water. Even synthetic polymers cannot hold that much water. That is where its anti-aging effects come to play. One of the first signs of aging skin is the loss of its ability to hold moisture, resulting in reduced levels of pliability and firmness.

Restylane is an injectable formula that can be used to smooth out the skin around the mouth and nose and make moderate and harsh lines disappear. While it is used mostly by middle-aged people, the therapy can also be used for those younger patients with premature lines. Its use is approved by the FDA for treatment of facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds only. It is not to be used elsewhere.

The effects of Restylane can last up to six months, depending on how well it works with the patient’s skin. Apart from filling wrinkles, it can also be used to give the skin a fuller appearance and is a lot safer to use than other types of synthetic dermal fillers. It also gives a more natural, subtle look when compared to other types of fillers.

How It Is Used

Restylane is a substance that is normally found in liquid form, and it is injected under the skin. Its effects can be seen after a few days of the procedure. A bit of swelling, tenderness, and soreness is common but only temporary. Once the tissues have had time to heal for a few days, the rejuvenating effects are apparent.

Restylane should only be administered by a qualified doctor or physician. Do not ever attempt to go off market or use it without the guidance of a medical professional. Always speak to your doctor beforehand.
