What is Restylane?
Restylane is one of the common types of hyaluronic acid-based fillers. This filler is commonly used to treat the lines under the eyes as well as wrinkles on the hands and more. Because Restylane helps restore volume to facial features, it’s also the ideal procedure for smoothing and filling in lines that can appear around lips and mouth area, plumping the lips, as well as adding volume and definition to the cheeks. Restylane is a good option for clients looking to treat larger areas that need more volume than other hyaluronic acid-based fillers can provide. Unlike Juvederm, once the Restylane injection is delivered, the gel stays in the target area, allowing the experts at Skin Code LA to shape the area and transform it to give you better contour and definition in particular regions of the face.
How long is the Restylane procedure?
As a typical derma filler session, the Restylane procedure can take between 30 minutes to an hour per session. Full results may be noticeable a few days following the injection. Some clients can see their desired results almost instantly! Similar to Juvederm, Restylane fillers results are temporary and typically last from 6 to 18 months.
How does it work?
Restylane works by adding volume under the skin when it has lost collagen and other tissues due to factors like aging and sun exposure. It promotes the smoothness and lifting of the skin while giving your face a natural and youthful look.
Restylane is a cohesive procedure. The hyaluronic acid is supplied to the skin and the water of the acid provides volume to plump and restore a youthful face or hands. The HA acid has the ability to attract more water, which can help preserve the newly added volume to the skin.
The procedure is done with local anesthesia to reduce the level of discomfort as much as possible. Our clients’ satisfaction, safety and trust are some of our top priorities at Skin Code LA!
With various types of Restylane, all of which are hyaluronic acid-based fillers, each type of Restylane is created with a different purpose.
Restylane Silk, for example, is designed for lip augmentation and for treating the wrinkles around the mouth, while Restylane Lyft treats cheek lifting and midface contouring deficiency, promoting fullness and volume.
Other kinds of Restylane include Restylane Refyne, which aims to help soften laugh lines around the nose and corners of the mouth while maintaining facial expressions, and Restylane Defyne, which is similarly used to treat the moderate to severe, deep facial wrinkles and folds around the mouth and the nose.
