A sexy, plump pout is a universal sign of youth and beauty. Whether you have lost cheek volume, symmetry with age, or have become dissatisfied with the proportions of your natural lips, there are a wide variety of injectable filler solutions for a safe and natural look. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. When injected, it safely plumps from below the skin to create a soft and smooth surface.
Read on to learn about Restylane and why it’s the ideal filler option for first-timers.
The Rules of Restylane
For those considering fillers for the first time, hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane, are ideal for many reasons. Perhaps the key benefit of hyaluronic acid fillers is they can be partially or even fully reversed if you are not satisfied with the results.
Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and is distributed throughout connective and neural tissue. It is a crucial component of the extracellular matrix, a framework of our bodies’ various protein structures, which also includes collagen and proteoglycans. Hyaluronic acid enables these protein structures to hold water more effectively. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane clings to your skin, and the water in the acid provides volume. The acid also attracts more water, helping to preserve this recently added volume.
Full results are almost always attained in a single visit, and results are expected to last anywhere from 10-12 months.
As collagen production in your skin begins to decrease due to aging, the skin starts to lose its elasticity. It is also common to see a loss of volume in your lips overtime. If you have begun to see a dramatic change in your lips over time, lip injections could be the ideal treatment option to restore a full and soft look and feel. Lip injections are also an excellent option for anyone who has never had full lips and would like to achieve a new, temporary look.
Cheeks that were once full and high begin to skin towards our earlobes as our bodies age. A tired, sagging appearance leads to the dreaded parenthesis-like lines around the mouth that become overemphasized. This drooping and deep wrinkling are telltale signs of aging that can make us feel older and even tired.
Restylane uplifts the cheeks, restores the jawline, and erases the “parenthesis” on either side of the mouth. You can expect to see a subtle, yet dramatic change by adding volume to the cheeks and softening harsh lines around your mouth. Post-treatment, you will immediately see a remarkable and more youthful appearance.
Other Ideal Treatment Areas
Different types of Restylane can be used for various needs, including:
- Lip enhancements
- Targeting smile lines around your mouth
- Adding volume to your cheeks
- Minimizing dark circles under your eyes
- Filling in hollow temples
- Non-surgical nose job
Almost anyone can get Restylane since the procedure is easily performed, and recovery is quick. Restylane is an in-office procedure that involves no incisions. Treatment is typically performed with local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort you may experience. Injections can take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour, depending on how much work you’re having done.
