An HA (hyaluronic acid) filler used to restore volume loss due to aging. It provides natural-looking results by smoothing facial wrinkles and folds. There are many types of Restylane fillers that vary in consistency and flexibility (Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne), providing lip enhancement, smoothing lines around the mouth , and adding lift and volume to the cheeks , and reversing signs of volume loss on the back of the hands.
The process is carried out through micro-injections directly into the skin. It replaces the lost hyaluronic acid, besides it allows reshaping and contouring of the face and lips, as well as giving volume to areas modified by the aging process. As it contains lidocaine, the discomfort is minimal.
The treatment is completely personalized and will depend on the patient’s age and degree of aging. The most important thing is that the results are visible from the first session.
Giving a sample situation, if we do a session before the summer, we will have to redo in two months so that the skin looks beautiful and hydrated for the next nine months.
In the case of mature or more photo-aged skin, two or three sessions four weeks apart may be required to achieve healthy skin.
Restylane has been proven to provide long term results, generally lasting 6 to 9 months or 12 months (the longevity of the product also depends on the condition of the skin and the amount of product used to correct the problem).
In general combining cosmetic dermal filler treatments with treatments such as Botox injections, chemical peels, laser skin resurfacing or skin tightening will enhance the results and in certain cases, make Restylane longer lasting.
Regarding recovery, the patient after the treatment will be able to live a completely normal life, although some bruising or swelling at the injection site is expected. Patients can return to normal activities immediately. If necessary, injection discomfort can be treated with an ice pack.
