Just as you are constantly changing, your skin is also changing. As you age, your body naturally produces less collagen, which leaves skin with less structure and more elasticity. Many natural lifestyle factors may also have a frustrating effect on your appearance, such as the formation of lines and wrinkles. You may feel like you are left with nothing you can do to rejuvenate your appearance to look and feel your best again, but this is not the case! Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler that can help minimize the appearance of unwanted signs of aging as well as providing a subtle volume increase. Learn more about this treatment option during a consultation with our team in the Chicago area at aFresh® Med Spa & Plastic Surgery in Glenview, IL!
What Is Restylane?
Restylane® is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option that utilizes increases in volume to reduce the appearance of frustrating signs of aging. This FDA-approved dermal filler can be a safe and effective choice for addressing concerns like:
- Facial folds
- Marionette lines
- Smile lines
- Upper lip lines
- Volume loss, particularly cheek volume loss
Restylane uses a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid, or HA, to volumize your appearance. HA naturally occurs in your body to provide skin with structure and hydration.
Restylane may also be used, in some cases, for non-surgical lip augmentation to balance or increase the size and shape of lips.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Restylane injections are administered in the comfort of our Chicago area office in relatively short outpatient procedures. There is no set downtime associated with a treatment session, and most people are able to return to their normal daily activities.
There is little to no pain associated with treatment, but an anesthetic may be available for your additional comfort. You may experience some tenderness and swelling in the treatment area.
While results will vary for each person and treatment area, many people begin to enjoy results within a few days of treatment. Results typically gradually improve, and they may last for up to a few months or even a year. A series of regular treatments may help achieve and maintain the best results with Restylane.
