If you want a more youthful look but you’re wary of plastic surgery, Restylane may be just the treatment for you. Restylane is an filler injection. Your doctor injects it into key areas of your face, and it fills out these features, getting rid of the sunken look that comes with age. It can be used to augment your lips, restore fullness to hollow cheeks, erase wrinkles and lots more. But how do you know if it’s right for you? Here are the pros and cons of this unique treatment.
The active ingredient is hyarulonic acid. This is found naturally in humans and animals. However, these injections contain nothing from any other person or animal. The hyarulonic acid used is synthetic, but still all natural. In fact, it’s even better than the hyarulonic acid produced in your body because it’s biodegradable. You can rest easy knowing that you’re not getting stuff injected into you that used to be part of an animal!
This is one of the treatment’s greatest advantages and it’s the reason people are flocking to it. It offers similar results to plastic surgery, but it’s easy and the recovery is fast. There are no incisions or scars, and the risk of complications is very low. Best of all, you don’t have to worry about going under the knife.
It’s not the stuff they inject, but your body’s reaction to it, that gives Restylane’s results such a natural look. There are no areas of hardness or bumps, and most people will never know you’ve had any work done. They just might notice that you’re more radiant and youthful than they remembered you being!
Restylane comes with a price tag of around $500 per treatment. This isn’t a bad price at all when you consider the benefits, but unfortunately, the results are temporary. They last anywhere from 6 months to a year, and then you’ll want to get it done again. When you consider that it’s $500 per treatment, you can see how this method of staying young can be a little expensive.
It’s a wonderful alternative to plastic surgery and there’s no cutting you open, but it can still be slightly uncomfortable the first time. After all, the doctor will be pricking you with needles. They use anesthetic sometimes, especially when working around the lips, but most people don’t need it. If you’re not sure you can handle it, talk to someone who has gotten it done before so you’ll know what to expect. Your surgeon can tell you about it too. It may be a little uncomfortable your first time.
This is a great treatment but there will probably never be a do-it-yourself-at-home version. You’ll have to go to the clinic to have it done. The cool thing is that lots of day spas offer this treatment, so you can get it done in style.
Restylane is a great way to correct skin problems and turn back the years. It’s much nicer than plastic surgery and it’s easier to recover from. If Restylane sounds like something you might be interested in, talk to a trained cosmetic surgeon about it today.
