How Restylane® can improve your appearance and restore youthful features
Restylane treatment plans are personalized for each patient. The process begins with a consultation visit to discuss treatment goals and put together an effective treatment plan. The following are three main ways Restylane can improve your appearance and make you look younger.
1. Remove aging lines and wrinkles
One of the main uses of Restylane is to remove lines and wrinkles that form around the mouth and nose often as a result of natural aging. Restylane can help reduce lines and wrinkles around the lower cheek, jawline, lips, nose, and other areas of the face. Most notably, Restylane can address wrinkles and lines in two primary areas:
▪ Marionette lines: lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin
▪ Nasolabial folds: lines that run from the nose to the corner of the mouth
Correcting these facial wrinkles, lines, and folds can make skin look younger and smoother. Although these types of concerns develop as we age, patients of all ages can benefit from reducing facial lines and wrinkles with Restylane.
2. Cheek and lip augmentation
Cheek and lip augmentation refers to adding volume to these areas of the face. This may be necessary if a part of the face looks sunken or too thin. As we age, fatty and connective tissues lose their structures and begin to shrink. This leads to a loss of definition and volume in the cheeks and lips, often creating facial folds and wrinkles and a face that lacks definition. Restylane dermal fillers restore the volume of the cheeks and lips, allowing the patient to look younger.
3. Enhance appearance around the jaw
Many people feel as if they lose definition and volume around their jaw as they age. Restylane can also address these concerns by adding a filler to the jaw area. Not only can this help address issues of a lack of volume in the jaw, but it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and facial folds in the area as well.
When to choose Restylane
Restylane is suitable for patients that want a non-surgical form of treatment to restore their youthful appearance. The best way to determine whether Restylane (or another treatment solution) is right for you is to arrange a consultation with a Restylane provider.
