What Is Restylane®? Dr. Darst recommends Restylane® if you’re between 35 and 60 years old and want to revitalize your appearance. Restylane® is a popular facial filler that treats moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. It also improves your skin’s elasticity and effectively increases your face’s volume and tone. How Does It Work? Restylane® is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in your skin’s deepest layers. The acid attracts water molecules, so it results in increased volume and fullness in the treated areas. Dr. Darst uses Restylane® in the mid-face where we lose facial volume over time, leading to sagging, wrinkling and jowling of the face. The increased volume lifts the face and decreases the appearance of the jowl that accompanies aging. Most people see results immediately after treatment. Some need follow-up injections four to nine months after the initial treatment. In most cases though, Restylane® treatment lasts about 18 months. Why Is Restylane® Different? Restylane® is similar to other hyaluronic acid fillers. It does not contain animal products, and, therefore, poses little risk of allergic reactions. No allergy testing is required prior to treatment with Restylane®. View our Restylane before and after gallery Are There Any Side Effects?
