Restylane is an injected gel comprised of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the human body. Restylane acts as a dermal filler by correcting areas of hollowness, decreased laxity and wrinkles on the skin for between six to nine months after the application.
When we age, the fullness in our cheeks decreases and shifts to the midface causing a heaviness in the lower face, resulting in a droopy appearance of the corners of the mouth and jowel area. When correcting areas of decreased density due to fat loss, bone resorption and decreased laxity of skin, the restored appearance is instant, virtually painless and lasts approximately 9 months.
Restylane Silk treatments are also used to correct dark circles and hollowness under the eyes in addition to other unwanted facial aesthetic blemishes. The soft and pliable nature of Restylane Silk allows our injector to correct very superficial lip lines and areas of longstanding wrinkles, in addition to the thin skin under the eyes.
