The effects of time, sunlight and stress can take a toll on your skin, leaving tiny lines and wrinkles around your eyes and along your forehead. Even smiling and laughter can leave their mark by creating folds and furrows around your nose and mouth. With Restylane, a dermal filler made of safe, non-animal-derived compounds, you can enjoy the fresh, supple appearance of youthful skin. Whether you want to add fullness to your cheeks and lips or smoothness to your eyes and forehead, Restylane can help you recapture the freshness of youth by restoring volume and minimizing the appearance of aging.
The active ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in your own body. Restylane is a clear gel that’s injected into the skin around your eyes or lips or along the folds between your cheeks and nose. With only a few treatments, Restylane fills out the facial lines that create an impression of age, worry and fatigue. This injectable gel may reduce marionette lines between your mouth and chin, smooth the laugh lines around your eyes or minimize the parallel wrinkles called “elevens” that may appear between your eyebrows. With Dr. Pacheco’s skillful technique, these results can be achieved with a minimal number of injections, making your treatment more comfortable and affordable.
Restylane has gained popularity over collagen injections because hyaluronic acid causes fewer reactions and produces more natural, long-lasting results. The rejuvenating benefits of Restylane may last from six months to one year or longer, depending on your body’s response to the product. Because very few people experience an allergic reaction to Restylane, a preliminary skin test is usually not required. Restylane is made of a compound that’s compatible with your body, which means that it breaks down naturally over time and rarely causes side effects. Although you can’t literally reverse time, you can restore the supple volume of your younger years with this safe, biocompatible product.
