Restylane® is a presciption injectable designed to replace diminished hyaluronic acid, the natural occuring substance that allows fullnss and elasticity in your skin. As you lose hyaluronic acid, your skin develops wrinkles and folds.
Restylane® is composed of hyaluronic acid and restores volume to reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth, creating youthful contours. It is injected into the skin to fill areas where there are depressions, such as smile lines around the mouth, and under the eyes. It can also be used to fill fine lines around the eyes and elsewhere on the face when BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® do not completely eliminate the lines.
If you're seeking facial rejuvenation in the Houston area, Dr. Malik Kutty would be pleased to discuss your suitability for this injectable. Please call Luxe Plastic Surgery at (281) 241-1041 to arrange your initial consultation.
Uses for Restylane®
One popular use for Restylane® is for lip augmentation. Since it is an injectable gel, the lip can be shaped however the patient wants. Restylane® can also be used for cheek augmentation, to produce a higher-appearing cheekbone. Some acne or other types of scars can also be smoothed out with injection of Restylane® underneath.
As the world's most studied and most-used cosmetic dermal filler, Restylane® has a well-defined safety profile and is approved for the treatment of severe to moderate wrinkles and lines on the face.
Your Restylane® Appointment
The treatment takes 10 minutes in the office. There is no downtime, and you may return to work immediately. This can be done in conjunction with other injectables or even with other rejuvenative facial surgery.
An experienced physician should perform the treatment, to assure that you achieve the desired result, without causing an overcorrection. Done properly, Restylane® creates an immediately visible and dramatic correction.
The skin will degrade the injected material over time, so Restylane® injection is not permanent.
