Restylane injections and Restylane procedure

Restylane injections along with the Juvederm injections have revolutionized the world of beauty with their instant effect and the reason is not very far away to fathom because of the fact that both can give very instant results as compared to the traditional anti aging creams.

Restylane injections were approved by FDA in 2003 and since then they have been used by cosmetic surgeons as well as dermatologists all over the world to give you face instant smoothness and very good younger looking face.

Restylane uses the hyaluronic acid as the injectable and in turn causes the skin to be elastic and smooth. Hyaluronic acid is also found inside the human body and it is this hyaluronic acid which binds the skin and makes sure that the skin is elastic and smooth. Now with aging what happens is that the hyaluronic acid gets depleted and that causes the skin to lose the volume and the elasticity? With the loss of volume and elasticity the wrinkles and crease begin to appear.

Another area where the Restylane injections have been used is the lips. Lip augmentation is done using the Restylane injection. In this the people who have slimmer lips are injected with Restaylane slowly to make the lips plumper.

For the results to appear it takes about a week and this indefinitely I would suggest a better alternative than microdermabrasion or the chemical peels or the anti wrinkle creams.

Now that said the entire procedure takes about 30 minutes and the there may be some swelling and redness or itching after the procedure.

Before starting on the Restylane injections it is better to consult the skin care specialist as to what it entails and then also get full advice regarding before and after safety precautions and do’s and don’ts .

The Restylane procedure

Restylane is injected using the fine needles and the liquid to be injected is in the form of clear gel. Generally a topical or local anesthesia is given so as to avoid the unnecessary pain that you can get while injecting the needle. After the injection it takes about seven days for the results to be there and those results can vary based on individuals.
