What is a Restylane Injection?
Restylane is an FDA-approved injectable gel that contains an active ingredient called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in our bodies that help keep our skin hydrated and elastic. A Restylane injection is designed to increase our hyaluronic acid levels to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Why a Restylane Injection?
Restylane is a biodegradable hyaluronic acid injection that goes deep into the underlying tissues to make them plumper. Restylane is considered one of the top injectables in the fight against aging. One of the first signs of aging are our eyes. Restylane, when used to eliminate dark circles and hollows under our eyes, can be quite effective. This injection can drastically reverse the tired, saggy appearance in our eyes and eliminate a few years off our appearance.
The most common areas treated with Restylane are:
- Crow’s Feet
- Frown Lines
- Laugh Lines
- Tear Troughs
What to expect during the procedure?
Restylane injections are administered with a fine needle. This treatment process will take approximately 30 minutes. While the effects of Restylane can last approximately anywhere between 6 to 9 months. It’s an effective method in eliminating wrinkles and fine lines to look more energized and younger.
What to expect after the procedure?
After the Restylane injection, you will notice mild swelling in the injected area. However, the swelling will last for approximately 2 to 3 days. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment.
It is highly recommended to avoid excessive sun exposure
How long will the results last?
Restylane injections are long lasting but not permanent. How long the results will last will depend on a few factors such as the individual’s skin type, lifestyle, and age. The duration of each Restylane injection will vary on the patient. Treatments like lip injections or tear troughs will have a different lasting duration. With that said, treatments will typically last 4 to 9 months depending on the Restylane injection.
