REDUCE THE APPEARANCE OF FINE LINES AND WRINKLES
Aging takes its toll on your skin. As the years accumulate, so do the wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. Dermal fillers such as Restylane provide a non-surgical means of reducing the appearance of those lines and creases and giving you smoother, younger-looking skin.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE?
Restylane is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler approved by the FDA for cosmetic use. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced in the body and is responsible for plumping and firming the skin. When the Restylane gel is injected directly beneath the location of the crease or wrinkle, the gel integrates into the dermal tissue, attracting and binding with water molecules to add and maintain facial volume. This added hydration fills in the lines and wrinkles and produces smoother skin.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF RESTYLANE?
Many Sahara Medical Institute patients choose Restylane due to its natural-looking results. Because hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the body, reactions are very rare and the body gradually absorbs it without any residue. Its effects are long lasting — Restylane results last one year, much longer than other similar cosmetic fillers.
WHAT CAN RESTYLANE TREAT?
Restylane can treat any part of the face. It can be used to lessen the appearance of deep folds, creases, fine lines around the mouth, and laugh lines. Restylane can also be injected directly into the lips to increase their volume and improve their shape. Very versatile, Restylane can even be used on the back of the hands, neck, and decolletage to rejuvenate aged skin.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY RESTYLANE APPOINTMENT?
The Restylane procedure takes only a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients can return to work and their regular activities immediately. Before the injection of Restylane, your skin may be numbed using a local anesthetic to keep you comfortable throughout the treatment. Once your skin is cleansed and numbed, Restylane is injected using a very fine needle. Because of the size of the needle, there is only minimal discomfort.cloudRequest Consultation
