Over time, the skin may lose elasticity and plumpness, resulting in unwanted creases, wrinkles, and thinning lips. Restylane® treatment performed by Mayo Clinic-trained, board-certified plastic surgeon Chad Robbins, M.D., F.A.C.S., helps restore volume to residents of Nashville, Franklin, and surrounding areas.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is a non-animal-based hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the human body, thus eliminating allergic reactions. The treatment is simple and convenient, and it can be administered without pre-testing. Best of all, the results are almost instantaneous. Restylane® results are long-lasting, giving skin a more youthful appearance for six months or longer.
Candidates for Restylane®
Restylane® is recommended for those who do not want or need surgery, or as a complement to surgery already scheduled or completed. Offered as an alternative to lip augmentation or lip implants, clients who choose Restylane® enjoy the following benefits:
- Treatment time of under an hour.
- Minimal discomfort or recovery time.
- Return to normal routines or work immediately after treatments (when performed as a standalone treatment).
- Results that last up to six months.
Uses for Restylane®
Restylane® adds the amount of HA to your body to attract and retain water naturally occurring in your face and lips, so you achieve maximum volume and hydration as when you were younger. Restylane is recommended for treating facial creases, folds, and small wrinkles such as:
- Lines around the mouth
- Laugh lines
- Lines from the edges of your mouth leading to your chin (sometimes call “marionette lines”)
- Frown lines
- Crow’s feet
- Lift out scarring depressions
