Restylane is one of the most common dermal fillers, intended to smooth wrinkles and other fine lines in the face and mouth. When aging becomes apparent in your appearance, you might be considering Restylane, an FDA-approved option, for your treatment. Because it is made of hyaluronic acid, a sugar molecule found in every living organism, Restylane provides biocompatibility to the existing tissue at the injection site. Patients can rest assured that Restylane is one of the healthiest, most natural dermal fillers on the market.
While totally safe, Restylane isn’t painless, illustrating how even the most advanced procedures can be minimally painful. While slight pain is common and expected during the injection, discomfort goes away in just a few days for most patients.
Restylane vs. Restylane Silk
Dr. Busso uses Restylane to treat issues in the following areas:
- Upper and lower lips
- Skin rejuvenation along hands, décolletage, face and neck
In cheek augmentation, Dr. Busso restores the natural life of cheekbones to target volume loss from aging and/or weight loss. In addition, Restylane is used to smooth out prominent veins and folds in the neck, face, hands and chest.
Aside from the face and neck, fillers can benefit the chest and cleavage areas to minimize wrinkles. When used in conjunction with laser resurfacing to improve skin texture, Restylane injected into the chest area allows for a lifted, more youthful appearance without invasive surgery like implants or breast augmentation.
New FDA-approved Restylane Silk can provide optimal results for combatting lip lines specifically. The hyaluronic acid component includes smaller, smoother particles to allow for a more precise, natural looking application in small areas like the lips.
For both Restylane and Restylane Silk, benefits typically last up to a year* and do not affect your ability to move your face naturally.
