The Restylane® line of treatment products has earned an excellent reputation among men and women who want to renew their appearance without too much fuss. Restylane® treatments are available at Menard Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Menard. Our medical spa provides advanced non-surgical treatments such as Restylane® for residents of the Tuscaloosa community.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a superior gel formula approved by the FDA to help increase and maintain hydration in skin cells. Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that attracts and retains water in skin cells, improving volume and elasticity. As a natural consequence of aging, our bodies reduce production of HA, which causes skin cells to lose their natural hydration, producing lines, wrinkles and flaccid skin. Restylane® delivers HA directly to cells deep beneath the skin’s surface layers to augment and maintain moisture in these cells. The continued hydration of skin cells triggered by Restylane® treatments produces a gradual fading away of lines and wrinkles in the treatment area as the skin becomes smoother and firmer. Restylane® is an inexpensive, minimally invasive treatment that requires no downtime.
Where Does the HA in Restylane® Come From?
Restylane® gel is formulated with only all-natural plant-based hyaluronic acid that is biocompatible with human skin cells, reducing any potential for adverse reaction. For several months, the body continues to absorb and utilize the HA in Restylane®, gradually improving the skin’s condition.
What Conditions Does Restylane® Treat?
Restylane® has been approved for treatment of the following conditions:
- Flaccid skin, lines, and wrinkles in the eye region
- Flat, sunken cheekbones and lack of volume and definition in the cheeks
- Jowls and sagging skin along the chin and jawline
- Loss of fullness, volume, and definition around the lips
- Marionette lines and parenthesis lines around the mouth
Can I Combine Restylane® with Other Treatments?
Yes. Restylane® may be combined with other injectables or with treatments such as liposuction , or even a facelift to produce a more sculpted and defined facial contour.
How Long Do Restylane® Results Last?
Typically, a single treatment session produces dramatic improvements that normally last for about a year. Most patients schedule yearly follow-up treatments.
