When it comes to cosmetic procedures for adults, Restylane Fillers are some of the most popular options. They are known for their ability to smooth out wrinkles and contours in the face, neck, and chest. Because of this, they have become the go-to filler for thousands of men and women looking for non-surgical solutions to their beauty concerns. So, how do they work?
First, it's important to understand the basics of the injection process. As with all injections, the procedure starts with a numbing cream that is applied to the treatment area to minimize any discomfort or pain. Then, a small amount of solution is injected into the target areas using a very fine needle. In most cases, the treatment takes around 30 minutes to complete.
After treatment, there is usually some mild redness and swelling in the treated areas that should subside within a few hours. There is no downtime associated with this procedure so you can return to your normal activities right away. However, it is important to avoid strenuous activity for several days afterwards so that the results have a chance to set in. The results typically last for approximately 6 months to 3 years or more before needing to be repeated.
Restylane Fillers work by replenishing the volume under the skin and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin which support the skin structure and keep it looking youthful and smooth. The result is a more youthful appearance with fewer lines and wrinkles.
According to the Restylane website, "Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines)."
