Restylane which is a compound similar in composition to natural hyaluronic acid, when introduced into the dermis, replenishes the body's natural hyaluronic acid. It retains the water molecules, thereby keeping the dermis well hydrated. The skin recovers its previous appearance and volume. Wrinkles and lines are reduced in appearance. When injected into the lip border, Restylane lifts the lines of the lip, and gives it a fuller appearance thereby, restoring the youthful appearance of your skin.

Treatment with Restylane
Individuals of all skin types can benefit from Restylane. Your skin care practitioner will suggest an appropriate treatment based on a thorough diagnosis of your skin. The treatment lasts only for about 15 to 30 minutes. The doctor will inject the hyaluronic acid into the dermis, using a fine needle. Restylane will be introduced a few millimeters underneath the skin surface. There is usually very little pain involved, but sometimes you may need an anesthetic for relief. After the injection, you may notice slight swelling or red spots in the area. But these will disappear on their own. When Restylane filler is introduced into the skin, hyaluronic acid attract the waters and causes swelling of the tissue located under wrinkles and lines. The wrinkles are thus filled out, giving a smoother appearance to the skin. After some time, the extra hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body and the effects of the treatment begin to disappear. Restylane injections are recommended once every 6 to 12 months.

Complications with Restylane treatment
No serious complications have been noticed with Restylane. There may be some swelling, itching, redness or some discomfort, but these disappear in hours or days. The hyaluronic acid is not sourced from animal tissue, and therefore, there is no risk of complications for those who suffer from allergies to animal products. No scarring is seen, and the method itself is very safe. If you need a pain killer before the treatment, inform your doctor about this, and he will use a topical cream on the area before treatment. You can also opt for an anesthetic injection.
