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 Is the Difference Between Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk?
All Restylane products are FDA-approved dermal fillers that provide an effective way to combat the signs of aging. They both come from the same collection, but they are designed to treat and correct different areas of the face and body.
The benefit of this family of fillers is that different fillers treat and correct different concerns. When a collection of fillers specializes in different areas, you can trust that you will get natural-looking results because they are specifically formulated for very targeted areas. The Restylane collection does just that.
Restylane-L plumps the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or into your lips for lip enhancement.
If you want to address and correct lines, wrinkles, and mid-face volume loss, the Restylane Lyft formulation is the perfect dermal filler to treat those specific issues.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed to treat the lips. It is the first FDA-approved dermal filler that has been exclusively formulated to augment the lips. Those who choose this filler can add fullness to their lips without having to undergo any surgical measures.
