Correct Facial Wrinkles and Folds*
Today, many people are showing increasing interest in correcting wrinkles and folds, shaping facial contours and augmenting the lips. Restylane is a complete solution for tissue-tailored facial augmentation – a natural beauty lift using the body’s own material.
Restylane is designed to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Restylane is a crystal-clear, biodegradable NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) gel, which is injected into the dermis in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to the skin.*
Restylane Before and After Photos*
Since it was launched in 1996, Restylane has undergone extensive histological and clinical studies with an increasing body of evidence relating to its ease of use, tolerability and effectiveness. Today, more that one million treatments have been successfully carried out worldwide.
Natural Beauty – Made in Sweden
Restylane is a Swedish innovation dedicated to natural beauty. After decades of extensive research, Dr. Engt Agerup and the company Q-Med in Uppsala, Sweden, succeeded in developing a method to stabilize non-animal, hyaluronic acid and forming a gel called NASHA. The first application of the NASHA gel, Restylane, was introduced in 1996.
Smoothing out folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous difference toward a patient’s appearance and make them look several years younger. Restylane offers facial rejuvenation without the use of foreign elements. For the treatment of wrinkles or folds, Restylane Filler is injected into the skin in small amounts with a very fine needle. The injected gel gives natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. Treating wrinkles with Restylane is fast and safe – and leaves no scars or other traces on the face.*
How a Wrinkle Occurs
As we age, the hyaluaronic acid in the skin diminishes as cells lose their ability to produce it. As a result, the skin becomes drier, thinner and less able to restore itself after squeezing or indentation. The loss of skin fullness also means that the skin becomes looser. All in all, these factors lead to wrinkling and an older appearance of the skin.
For many women, a fuller, more sensual mouth comes high on their wish list. Lip augmentation is usually carried out in two steps – pouting and contouring. To create a more pronounced mouth and fuller lips, Restylane is injected into the upper and/or lower lip. This is often combined with the marking of the vermilion border by injecting the gel along the lip line. Redefining this edge leads to a more youthful and appealing look. The philtrum ridges can be defined by injecting the gel into the lines. To achieve the optimal result, a combination of these steps is often used.
Many people are looking for a slightly fuller shape for their chin. Just a touch of additional volume can make an enormous difference, giving the face a fuller or more defined appearance. Or perhaps you want a rounder, more sensual line along the cheeks to bring out that youthful innocence? Injected into the skin, Restylane Lyft corrects deep folds and lifts up the skin from the cheeks and chin, giving a new shape to the facial contours.
