Did you know that your face actually begins to age in your 20s? This is when hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity, begins to diminish. As it does, the skin loses volume and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Wrinkles become inevitable in the years to come.
Each product in the Restylane® family of hyaluronic acid fillers features a unique particle size, which means they offer tailored treatments for individual, natural-looking results. Restylane and Restylane Lyft smooth away wrinkles and fine lines; Restylane Silk creates fuller and more accentuated lips; and Restylane Lyft adds lift and volume to the cheeks. All Restylane products work to enhance facial features and give long-lasting, yet non-permanent results.
What is Restylane-L and how does it work?
Restylane-L contains medium-sized particles of hyaluronic acid to restore fullness and volume to the skin, while correcting moderate to deep facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years old. The “L” simply indicates that the solution also contains the anesthetic lidocaine to minimize the initial sting of the injection.
What can I expect from treatment?
After you and your Water’s Edge Dermatology practitioner determine what areas you want to treat, she will inject Restylane into the treatment areas using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired aesthetic effect. Since the injection contains lidocaine, you should feel very little discomfort. The procedure only takes 10-20 minutes with little to no downtime, so you can return to work or your daily routine immediately.
When will I see results and for how long will they last?
Almost immediately, you will notice increased volume and a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Most patients see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane.
