Aging often comes with unwelcome changes to our appearance. These changes may take the from of sagging skin, wrinkles, and fine lines all over the face. Not only will your outward appearance be changed, but the way people view you will be changed as well.

Both men and women have the desire to maintain their youthful good looks for as long as possible. While pausing time isn’t currently possible, the effects that time poses on your facial features can be paused with the help of innovative plastic surgery procedures.

Hyaluronic Acid is an essential naturally occurring substance found in the human body. It is responsible for maintaining the healthy appearance of the skin. With age the concentration of HA depletes leading to appearance of skin folds and wrinkles. With cosmetic treatments, however, you can rejuvenate your lost youthful looks.

Combating the Signs of Aging

There are three ways to combat the signs of aging. They include:

• Using injectables: Injectables like Restylane contains active components that are effective in reversing skin damage that’s responsible for the visible signs of aging.
• Skin Resurfacing: Resurfacing involves peeling or the removal of the damaged surface layer of the skin through the use of abrasives and peels to reveal younger looking skin.
• Surgery: Invasive treatments that can help rejuvenate your youthful good looks.

While each method is useful for helping you achieve youthful looks, people who don’t want to undergo invasive or abrasive treatments can opt for a minimally invasive injectable like restylane.

Restylane Injections for the Treatment Age Lines

Restylane is the latest in the range of injectable facial treatments. It is a clear, biodegradable, non-animal based gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid. The procedure is quick and can be completed over a lunch break. The results aren’t permanent, but you will see them for about six months.

Suitable Areas of Treatment

Restylane is suitable for the treatment of all areas of the skin. Everything from deep folds, creases, and light wrinkles can be combatted with Restylane. Fine lines around the mouth, including laugh line are the most common target sites for Restylane.

With variations containing larger particles, Restylane can be successfully used to enhance facial features. Features like recessive chins, bags under the eyes, and under projected cheek bones can also be treated with Restylane.

Is Restylane Suitable for You?

Restylane isn’t associated with any major risks. The treatment is minimally invasive and is easily accepted into the body. Restylane is suitable for everyone who wishes to reduce the visible signs of aging. Before you decide to undergo the procedure, you will need to talk to an experienced surgeon and provide full medical history.


Restylane is administered to the target site through a fine needle. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the region before injection. When the hyaluronic acid enters the skin, it absorbs water and begins to swell. As a result, the overlaying skin stretches out and appears smoother.

When compared to other dermal fillers, the effects of Restylane will last much longer. The procedure is quick and relatively pain free.
