Several injectable fillers are available in the United States to temporarily reverse the signs of aging by adding volume and smoothing out wrinkles. Restylane is a popular choice in that it is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural molecule found in most of our bodies; it uses the body’s own moisture to maintain shape and lasts longer than most other fillers.
Restylane is commonly used to:
- Define and add volume to lips
- Fill small depressions; folds
- Fill the hollow beneath eyes
The Restylane procedure is similar to other injectable procedures in that a topical anesthetic may be applied to the treatment area to minimize the pain of the injections. The doctor uses tiny needles to inject the hyaluronic acid into wrinkles, nasolabial or other folds of the skin. It fills out the skins depressions giving you a smoother appearance almost instantly!
