When it comes to dermal fillers, there are many options to choose from, but not all fillers are the same. In the past, only invasive surgical techniques could help to smooth the appearance of wrinkles and volume loss, but due to advanced science and technology, there is Restylane®.
Restylane® is a dermal filler that works by mimicking your body’s natural hyaluronic acid production, which in turn restores volume and laxity to your skin. Restylane® is primarily used to treat lips and lines in the cheeks, but how exactly does it work?
At Eros Beauty and Wellness, board-certified family physician Dr. Christine Eros has served the Southern California area with beautiful, natural cosmetic results for years. She is trained in Restylane® administration and will customize your treatment according to your individual goals.
Benefit #1: It’s Natural
Restylane® fillers are made up of an ingredient called hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps restore volume and hydration to your skin. As we age, our skin stops producing as much hyaluronic acid, resulting in loose, wrinkled, and dehydrated skin. By imitating this natural acid, Restylane® ensures that the skin in your face, lips, and hands feels natural and beautiful.
Benefit #2: It Can Be Used on More Than Just the Face
A unique thing about Restylane® is that unlike other dermal fillers that can only be used on or around the face, Restylane® can be used on other parts of the body like the neck and hands. This is because of Restylane®’s unique technology that allows it to be broken down into smaller particles. The smallest formula of Restylane® is used for the fine lines and delicate areas of the face, but the medium to larger particles can be used around in the hands or on more dynamic wrinkles. It’s because of its diverse formulation that Restylane® can be tailored to fit your specific needs.
Benefit #3: The Results are Long Lasting
Compared to other dermal fillers that only last three to six months on average, Restylane® can last up to six months. Plus, you can schedule your next appointment so that you don’t have to worry about when your next appointment is. Because Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid, it will help to strengthen your skin’s natural barrier, so your lines and wrinkles are likely to come back at a slower rate.
Also, Restylane® will produce immediate results in your lips, contours of your cheeks and lessen the appearance of etched-in lines. The results only continue to progress over time as the filler settles into the body’s natural collagen supply.
