Dermal fillers are a group of non-toxic substances that are injected under the skin at various depths to smooth out fine lines, deep wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and acne scars, volumize and define lips, contour the chin and nose, or plump up sunken cheeks or temples for a full, lifted appearance.
Restylane is primarily used to treat medium-depth wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth) and marionette lines (the lines from the corners of your mouth down toward your jawline). It may also be injected around the corners of the mouth or in the lips to add fullness and enhanced definition.
Restylane is made with a hyaluronic acid gel which is a sugar that’s found naturally in your skin and makes your joint spaces feel slippery. Its function is to absorb water, deliver nutrients and act as a cushioning agent. So, when you inject it into your skin, it acts like a sponge and expands to fill in wrinkles and folds and support sunken areas,” The extra water brought to the skin’s surface also imparts a fresh, glowing radiance and a soft, supple skin texture. These injections also induce a robust production of collagen, which helps to further firm and plump your skin and reduce wrinkles over time.
