Restylane® in Birmingham, AL
Restylane® is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a complex sugar that is important for maintaining skin volume. Dermatologists of Birmingham has chosen Restylane® for men and women in Birmingham, Alabaster and surrounding areas in Alabama because of the product’s unique properties.
What is Restylane®?
The family of Restylane® products is formulated with hyaluronic acid (HA), a complex sugar that occurs naturally in the human body. The importance of HA lies within its role in connective tissues that are found in the skin, cartilage, and joints. HA binds with water to add a cushioning effect, lubrication and volume. Just as we produce less collagen beginning in our 20s, so too do we produce less hyaluronic acid. One of the most obvious disadvantages of this process is that our skin “collapses” inward to form lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® and other dermal fillers have similar anti-aging benefits compared to plastic surgery.
- No incisions needed, so there is no scarring
- No downtime or lengthy recovery
- No need for invasive tissue manipulation or removal
- Appropriate for patients who do not need or desire surgery to look younger
What sets Restylane® apart from other dermal fillers is that the product has a consistency that allows your dermatologist to carefully mold the gel once it is injected under the dermis. This may allow for a level of customization that cannot be achieved with the same number of injections as other HA-based products.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Our board-certified dermatologists have chosen Restylane® Lyft and Restylane® Silk to meet the anti-aging needs of our patients.
Restylane® Lyft addresses lost volume in the midface and cheek area. You may have reduced volume in these areas due to:
- Natural anatomy
- Fat loss
- Fat shifting
The HA in Restylane® Lyft gradually attracts more water to the area, and this creates a pleasant appearance of fullness and rounded contours.
Lip enhancement is a popular cosmetic option for men and women. Some dermal fillers can be used to give the lips a fuller appearance, but this is not the primary intent behind the products’ formulations. As a result, patients may not achieve the optimum improvements. Restylane® Silk is specifically formulated for lip enhancement; therefore, patients who choose this product for lip augmentation are extremely satisfied with the results.
What to Expect from Restylane®
Restylane® is administered with a very small gauge needle, and we make several injections during a single treatment. The results may last four to six months.
