Aging can generally bring with it the harsh effects of lines and wrinkles on the face. But aging can be graceful and doesn’t mean you need to deal with these wrinkles and creases. With the line of products available today, there are many effective options to eliminate wrinkles or frown lines. Restylane is the name for a range of injectable fillers with a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid, addressing the effects of aging on the facial skin.

What can Restylane treat?

Apart from removing crow’s feet and wrinkles in the nasolabial folds and other creases, Restylane can also be used for lip augmentation to add more volume to thin lips. Whether for cosmetic or medical reasons, consulting a qualified medical practitioner is the best way to avoid risks or side effects of dermal fillers like Restylane.

If you are looking for the best treatment options available to you, Dr. Azadeh Shirazi, MD has vast experience in Restylane treatments and is available at La Jolla Dermatology and Laser Surgery Center.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is an FDA-approved filler that contains hyaluronic acid. The skin naturally contains hyaluronic acid and it is a major component that helps with tissue repair. Hyaluronic acid also helps in cell growth and contributes to volume and tightness of the skin. The amount of this substance can reduce, either due to the natural process of aging or due to excessive exposure to UV rays from the sun. Inflammation and damage to the skin can also lead to the cessation of production of hyaluronic acid.

Restylane injections can replace the lost hyaluronic acid, leading to long-lasting volume restoration and wrinkle reduction. Different products within the Restylane family have varying formulations that are tailored to address the severity of wrinkles ranging from fine, moderate, to severe.

The procedure

During the initial consultation, a thorough review and evaluation of your medical and allergy history along with your present skin condition will be carried out. The number of treatment sessions with Restylane will be advised by the doctor based on this information and your overall cosmetic goals.

Products in the Restylane family are used to:

  • Provide natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds and adding volume to lips.
  • Add lift and volume to the cheeks and facial wrinkles and folds.
  • Provide natural-looking results to laugh lines with flexibility that allows you to maintain your natural expressions.

With this minimally invasive, clinically proven procedure, natural-looking results are available to help achieve the look you want. Feel free to give us a call or schedule a consultation to find out more about our Restylane treatments.
