estylane is a dermal filler commonly used to fill in wrinkles and lines, and add volume to thin lips. Restylane goes right to the underlying tissues to plump the skin, in order to minimize wrinkles. It also enhances the thickness and shape of the lips, making them fuller and more attractive.

Benefits of Restylane

Restylane is a popular hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that can fill in and zap away fine lines and wrinkles. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is an important component of healthy skin because it holds in moisture and keeps the skin supple. The HA in Restylane acts as a trigger for the body’s collagen production, and this results in firmer skin over time.

Restylane will:

  • Fill in marionette lines
  • Fill in nasolabial folds
  • Smooth out acne scars
  • Fill in aging lips
  • Smooth out deep facial creases

Restylane injections

At Awaken Aesthetics, Restylane injections are performed by one of our experienced medical professionals. Restylane is administered using a very fine needle, and the session generally lasts for about 30 minutes. The procedure is relatively comfortable because Restylane is enhanced with lidocaine, which is an effective anesthetic. However, a topical anesthetic is available should you need it.

There is no downtime, so you are free to return to work immediately after treatment. However, there may be some redness and swelling, but this should resolve in a few days.

Restylane results

The effects of Restylane typically last 6-18 months depending on the area treated and are apparent as soon as the procedure is complete. Restylane fills in fine lines and creases, and this gives the face a rejuvenated and youthful appearance. While the results with Restylane are beautiful, they are temporary, therefore repeat sessions will be needed in order to maintain the results.
