The Subtly Rejuvenating Effects of Restylane
Who doesn’t like a glowing, radiant, wrinkle-free complexion? Your skin is a good indicator of your overall health, and a healthy complexion generally indicates a healthy body. Unfortunately, the ravages of modern life take a toll on your skin – sunlight, dust, pollution, smoke, and more.
The body does have mechanisms to repair and rejuvenate your skin, but sometimes, it can’t keep up with the damage. You’ll need an extra boost to make your skin lively and healthy and glowing, and that’s where Restylane comes in.
Restylane is a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler product. It is safe, biodegradable, and non-animal-sourced. Hyaluronic acid is the body’s natural healer. It is present throughout the human body and aids in the healing of wounds and scars.
When your skin gets a hyaluronic acid boost with Restylane, this expedites the natural process of repair and healing and leaves your skin feeling fresh and rejuvenated. It works from the inside to heal the damage caused by the elements.
How Does It Work?
Restylane is completely natural and works by augmenting the already-occurring healing processes in your skin. You skin, as you may notice, is constantly changing. It gets damaged and new skin keeps growing constantly – it’s a continuous process. Restylane boosts the natural process of healing by adding more hyaluronic acid to the tissues.
You skin starts aging sometime after your 20s – because it naturally does, and also because life generally gets busier after your 20s with work and life stressors. Hyaluronic acid production also naturally diminishes with age. Restylane is just the supplement you need to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful.
Restylane is an injectable, meaning it is a product that is administered via injection directly into the skin, into the sub-dermal layers. It is a short outpatient procedure that only takes around 30 minutes to perform. It doesn’t need any test for allergies prior to injection. Mild anesthetics like numbing creams can be applied to reduce discomfort.
Wrinkle reduction is one of the main benefits of Restylane treatment. It can be injected directly into the problem areas where wrinkles usually occur, like in between the nose and mouth and between the eyes and temples where the much-hated crow’s feet occur.
Since Restylane is a “spot reduction” solution, it can be applied wherever you see wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections forming in order to nip them in the bud. It can also be used to get rid of wrinkles in the hands.
Restylane revitalizes the skin and improves elasticity and texture for a taut look. After working its magic for a period of up to six months or in some cases longer, Restylane is flushed out of your system by the body’s natural processes. Follow-up treatments may be available.
