Nothing can make the face look younger than refreshed eyes that are free of bags or dark circles. This is one of the first areas that people start to show their age and there is a point where cucumber slices and expensive eye creams stop doing the trick. This is where Restylane comes in handy. Restylane is a diverse collection of hyaluronic acid-based fillers used to smooth wrinkles and facial lines, plump lips, and add volume to parts of the face that may appear hollow, such as the under-eye area. Restylane has a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid and was the first of its kind on the market so there has been time for doctors to use it. In fact, millions of injections have been performed since its introduction. Restylane can be used in many areas of the face but is most commonly used to add volume and contour the lips. Another common use is for filling out the areas under the eyes or even to add volume to a weak chin or to correct a nose bump.
Restylane is a form of biodegradable hyaluronic acid that binds to water molecules to blend well under the skin and look very natural. The results are not permanent, but can last up to 12 months depending on the area that has been treated. There are two kinds of Restylane: Restylane Lyft is used for smoothing smile lines and increasing volume in the cheeks., and Restylane Silk is specifically designed for plumping the lips and filling fine lines around the mouth because it has a smaller molecular structure.
When pricing Restylane treatments, it is helpful to determine how much a single syringe of Restylane costs. Again, we always caution against choosing a clinic based solely on the price. It is important to remember you are paying for the practitioner experience as well as the product. If you are interested in correcting a loss of facial volume, plumping your lips, or filling smile lines and are seeking a natural-looking aesthetic solution, call Kwan Dermatology to schedule your consultation.
