Considering Restylane®? Read This First!

Odds are you’ve at least heard of Restylane® before.  That’s because in recent years, it’s become one of the most popular soft tissue fillers in the US.  What is a soft tissue filler?  Here’s a brief introduction.In the world of cosmetic injectables, there are essentially two categories:  Botulinum Toxin Type A and soft tissue fillers.  Botulinum Toxin Type A injections, which include BOTOX® and Dysport®, are essentially muscle relaxers that work to reduce the appearance of intermittent wrinkles like “frown lines.”  Fillers, on the other hand, work a bit differently.  These treatments – which include Restylane – work to add fullness to the face and literally “fill in” the valleys of creases.So, what sets Restylane apart?  Restylane, a biodegradable gel, is composed primarily of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body.  Moreover, Restylane attracts water molecules to the injection site, enhancing its effectiveness.

Restylane for Lip Enhancement

It’s important also to mention something else that sets Restylane apart from other fillers:  its ability to be used for Lip Enhancement.  In the past, the only real option for women with thin, flat lips was lip implants.  Today, we can now achieve a full, pouty lip with Restylane.  And, as its website reminds us,  “Restylane is the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.”Think Restylane might be right for you?  Schedule a consultation today!
