How Does Restylane® Combat Signs Of Aging?
As skin ages, it naturally slows the production of collagen and hyaluronic acid, a naturally present and produced substance in the body, which plays an essential role in hydrating the skin and restoring natural volume. As this production slows, skin becomes less hydrated, thinner, slows its ability to restore itself, and loses its natural elasticity, becoming more susceptible to the formation of wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® works to combat signs of aging by restoring age-related volume loss with Hyaluronic acid, and stimulating collagen production over time.
What Are Dermal Fillers? What Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face and hands. There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. All Restylane® products are transparent hyaluronic acids, which are sugars naturally found in the skin that help provide hydration, fullness and elasticity.
Can Restylane® Be Removed?
No. However, results are temporary and restylane dissolves naturally over time. To achieve your desired outcome, our Silk team of experts work with you to understand your goals and provide natural-looking results. Treatment can be done over time to gradually achieve your goal in several sessions.
Are There Any Side Effects Of Restylane® Silk?
Common side effects include swelling (other than the desired lip augmentation, i.e. unwanted swelling), tenderness, redness, bruising, itching, and pain. When these events were reported by subjects in clinical studies, the majority were tolerable and most resolved within two weeks. Other, less common side effects may also occur.
