Injectable dermal fillers are some of the most popular and effective non-invasive treatments around today, and Restylane has slowly solidified its place as a favorite amongst countless patients across NYC. Similarly to its main rival, Juvederm, Restylane uses a hyaluronic acid base, which allows it to seamlessly blend with the skin and provide a wide variety of benefits. Restylane is mainly designed to combat unwanted wrinkles and fine lines that occur as a result of age-related facial volume loss. Dr. Rollins and his team at Revolve Med Spa use Restylane above many other fillers due to its versatility and effectiveness in treating such issues.

What is Restylane?
An injectable dermal filler like Juvederm, Restylane uses hyaluronic acid as its active ingredient, which gives it its highly effective results and versatility. Restylane can treat a number of facial concerns, much notably it helps to alleviate unwanted wrinkles and fine lines, with a simple injection procedure that allows for 0 downtime and few, if any, side effects.

How Does Restylane Work?

One of the major factors of Restylane and its effectiveness lies in its hyaluronic acid base. HA is a naturally occurring compound found within the body, that helps to draw in much needed moisture and hydration to the skin cells from surrounding areas. This helps to improve subnormal fullness, and provide the skin with much needed plumpness that occurs due to facial volume loss as we age, and collagen stores are depleted. In addition, HA being the active ingredient and being found naturally within the body, means that Restylane seamlessly blends with the natural tissue of the skin, without being rejected and working just as well as natural fullness and collagen. When injected into he treatment area, Restylane will fill the gaps caused by facial volume loss and depleted collagen stores, and plump up the area, so the skin above can be smoother, softer and more supple than it previously was.

Combatting Facial Volume Loss

Aging is a fact of life, that we all must come to terms with and something that none of us will be able to escape from. The fact is that as we age, the skin loses vital skincare proteins known as collagen and elastin. These proteins give our skin its soft, supple texture and fullness, while giving it the elasticity to bounce back from being stretched and pulled. Restylane, works similarly to other hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers like Juvederm, as it helps to not only fill the void of this lost collagen and elastin, but it also helps to restore collagen over time and aids in its production. In addition, because of the loss of these compounds, the skin is left defenseless against outside environmental factors, and this leads to unwanted blemishes and issues like hyperpigmentation. Facial volume loss causes depressions to occur in the face, and these depressions lead to wrinkles on the skin’s surface. By injecting Restylane with its hyaluronic acid base, we are able to fill these depressions and reduce the appearance of these wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane is known to offer amazing results, and give patients the much needed fullness, and plumpness to their skin. 

What Can Restylane Treat?

As we mentioned, because of its hyaluronic acid base, Restylane is highly effective and versatile – offering patients treatment for a variety of different issues that might occur. Like Juvederm, the HA base allows it to also treat other skincare concerns, and even acts as an effective lip filler – providing much needed fullness, plumpness and definition to the lips. Because Restylane is non-invasive and requires a simple injection procedure, it means that there is zero downtime, and few, if any, side effects – patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately with results that will be visible almost immediately after their session and will only improve with time. 

Some of the major benefits and things Restylane can treat include:

  • Depressions or wrinkles along the cheeks and mid-face.
  • Under eye hollows and tear trough region issues.
  • Acts as an effective lip filler.
  • Crows feet treatment.
  • Nasolabial folds and nose area.
  • Mouth area and marionette lines.
  • Forehead wrinkles and eyebrow region.
