With aging comes loss of skin elasticity and a reduction in hyaluronic acid, which provides plumpness to the skin. Restylane® (www.restylane.com) is a clear gel composed of hyaluronic acid that are injected directly into facial lines and furrows around the nasolabial folds (area from the nose to the corner of the mouth), lips, and chin. These treatments restore plumpness and reduces the appearance of fine lines.
Redness and swelling may occur for 1-3 days following treatment.
Restylane Silk (www.restylaneusa.com/restylane/restylane-silk) has recently been approved and is designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth. It is made of smaller, smoother particles than those used in other Restylane products.
