Over the years, the aging process can rob your face of its natural smoothness and volume. Fortunately, dermal fillers like Restylane® can counter those negative effects by improving the appearance of deep wrinkles, lines, and folds while giving your skin a more supple and naturally fuller look. Whether you want to reverse these telltale signs of aging or you’d like to prevent them from making an appearance, and you’re in the Cleveland, Akron, or Medina areas, Dr. Quereshy has you covered with Restylane.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation that’s specifically designed to resemble your own hyaluronic acid. Naturally produced by the body, hyaluronic acid is a key component of connective tissue. Unfortunately, just like collagen and elastin, this important element is depleted during the aging process, contributing to the formation of wrinkles, lines, and folds in the face. Restylane can work to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that go from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
What Can Restylane Do for You?
There’s a Restylane product for just about every anti-aging need and all Restylane offerings have been approved by the FDA for use in patients over the age of 21.
- Restylane – Restylane and Restylane-L® are perfect for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane and Restylane-L can also be used for non-surgical lip enhancement for those who have naturally thin lips or have lost lip volume over the years.
- Restylane Silk – Restylane Silk is also for lip augmentation as well as the correction of wrinkles and lines around the mouth (perioral), including those vertical lip lines that many smokers suffer.
- Restylane® Lyft – Restylane Lyft with lidocaine can address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds as well as augment or restore lost volume to the cheeks and midface. Restylane Lyft can also be injected into the dorsal hand to counteract a volume deficiency.
- Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne – Both Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne are approved for the correction of moderate to severe deep facial wrinkles and folds, specifically the lines that run from the sides of your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds), and those that run from the corner of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
How Long Does Restylane Last?
Treatments with Restylane are only a temporary solution to your anti-aging problems. Although each patient is different, results are typically seen for about three to four months, but can last even longer in some cases. Oftentimes, the duration of its effect depends on several factors: how much is injected, the depth of the injections, and the particular area treated. Individuals who are more active tend to see their facial fillers fade faster than their more couch-bound counterparts. It’s also important to have a skilled and experienced provider like Dr. Quereshy who understands exactly where injections with Restylane will have the greatest impact in rejuvenating your appearance.
