RESTYLANE FOR FACIAL REJUVENATION
Fillers in Dubai | 13 November 2020
Restylane® is an FDA approved dermal filler used to smooth wrinkles and give the face youthful contours. It was the first hyaluronic acid filler approved for cosmetic use in the U.S. in 2003, and it has been successfully used in millions of treatments across the world.
What are Restylane and Restylane Silk used for?
The most common uses of Restylane are to:
soften the “parentheses” around the nose and mouth
hide lower eyelid bags or dark circles
lift and rejuvenate brows and upper eyelids
enhance lips by adding fullness while staying natural-looking
define lip borders
soften “lipstick lines” around the mouth
give noses more beautiful shapes and profiles
smooth skin wrinkles and acne scars
provide fullness to earlobes and provide support to earrings when there is damage to the ear lobes
lift the corners of the mouth
soften “marionette lines”
add fullness to cheeks, temples, chins or wherever it is needed
As a “thinner” version of Restylane, Restylane Silk is most commonly used to:
smooth “lipstick lines” and other fine lines, especially around the mouth
add fullness to lips
hide lower eyelid bags
provide fullness to hollows under eyes
How do Restylane and Restylane Silk work?
Restylane and Restylane Silk replenish the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, which is a “water-loving” molecule found naturally in the human body that keeps skin full and hydrated. Replenishing hyaluronic acid rejuvenates and adds volume to the skin, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and leaving patients with natural looking results.
Patients often ask about the differences between Restylane and Restylane Lyft because they are very similar products. The gel is initially made the same for both, but with Restylane, the gel is cut into smaller pieces than with Restylane Lyft. This means that Restylane can be placed more superficially in the skin, which makes it ideal for fine lines and facial contouring.
