What are the benefits of Restylane® treatment?
Restylane® offers patients a wide range of benefits, including a more youthful appearance. Restylane® can be used to fill minor to moderate lines and wrinkles and is especially effective around the eyes, nose, and mouth. When used as a lip enhancement product, it can lend volume and definition to lips, producing a sensual, more pronounced pout. Because the hyaluronic acid utilized is not derived from animal tissue, Restylane® does not create complications for those with animal allergies and tends to be more comfortable than alternative filler products that use animal tissue. Perhaps most importantly, the results of Restylane® treatments are completely natural looking and long lasting.
How does Restylane® work?
Restylane® works to add fullness to the facial skin by absorbing large quantities of water as it disintegrates. This gives the sunken areas of the face a new fullness for six months or more. Typically, the creases around the mouth, frown lines between the eyebrows, and thought lines on the forehead will see vast improvement after treatment with Restylane. Fine lines often disappear completely.

What areas can be treated with Restylane®?
Virtually any area of facial skin can be treated with one of the various Restylane® dermal fillers. Creases, deep folds, and light wrinkles can all be lessened through the use of Restylane®. Laugh lines and fine mouth lines are among the most popular targets for the injections. Sagging under the eyes, under-projected cheekbones, and recessive chins are often treated with this advanced hyaluronic acid formula. Among other popular applications of Restylane®, it can be used as a lip filler, where it can enhance volume and shape for months after treatment.

What are the side effects of Restylane® treatment?
Restylane® is a very well tolerated filler if applied correctly. There may be minor bruising and swelling which may last 1-4 days after the injection and which are typically covered by makeup in the relatively unlikely instance they are noticeable. Nodules and skin color changes are some of the more serious side effects but in the hands of an experienced practitioner, these issues are highly unlikely.
If you are looking for ways to improve the look of your skin and halt the negative effects of the aging process, then Restylane® treatment at LightTouch Med Spa can help you!
