Restylane® Facial Rejuvenation
Restylane® is a dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid, a substance found naturally in the human body, to fill deep folds and creases such as nasolabial folds. Our San Diego patients love Restylane® because unlike other dermal fillers, Restylane's® active ingredient is not derived from an animal source. This means that there is no need for an allergy test before you receive a Restylane® treatment.
The hyaluronic acid used in Restylane® works with your body's natural moisture to retain its shape. When Restylane® is first injected, almost all of the volume added to your features is composed of hyaluronic acid. As the substance degrades over several months, each molecule of hyaluronic acid binds to a molecule of water. This means that rather than a gradual decline in facial volume over time, Restylane® provides consistent volume for nearly six months at a time.
Nearly anyone seeking relief from deep wrinkles is a good candidate for Restylane®. Notable exceptions are people under the age of 18 and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Depending on your needs and aesthetic goals, our San Diego Facial Plastic Surgeons can easily combine Restylane® with other skin care treatments, including BOTOX® Cosmetic. The average Restylane® treatment lasts for up to six months, meaning you can enjoy a smooth, refreshed look with minimal office visits and downtime.
