At a certain age, all people in Tampa will develop facial wrinkles. It is a product of our plentiful sunlight and beautiful weather that encourages everyone to enjoy the outdoors.
Unfortunately, this sunlight is one of the major causes of facial wrinkles. While some wear their wrinkles with ease, others wish to restore their youthful beauty. Thankfully for those wishing to roll back the clock, there are several excellent products that can help reduce facial wrinkles. While Botox is well known for its paralyzing effect, Restylane is a dermal filler that can fill in wrinkles and offer a more natural appearance.
How Does Restylane Reduce Facial Wrinkles?
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that was introduced in Sweden to cure facial wrinkles. It is made with a base of hyaluronic acid (HA) of non-animal origin and is produced with patented NASHATM technology. This product was the first HA formula to receive an FDA approval for use in the United States. This means that Restylane, on the U.S. market for more than 10 years, has a strong safety record and has proven effective in the treatment of wrinkles.
A treatment of Restylane can add volume to the skin tissue to fill in wrinkles and make them less noticeable. It helps to provide dermal hydration, improved skin elasticity and enhanced skin tone. In addition to treating moderate facial wrinkles, this product also can be used to contour the face, correct facial balance and plump up the lips. The base of hyaluronic acid is actually a naturally occurring substance in the human body, so the dermal filler is usually well-received by the patient and there are seldom any allergic reactions or side-effects as a result of use. While it is not a permanent solution to the wrinkle problem, a single treatment can last from 3 months to six months before another series of injections is required.
Why Choose Restylane to Reduce Facial Wrinkles over Other Products?
Besides the safety record and the excellent track record in treating wrinkles, Restylane has some additional benefits over better known treatments. Often people consider Botox as the first line of defense against aging and are unaware of the benefits of dermal fillers. Botox is an excellent product in reducing wrinkles but it works entirely differently than HA based dermal fillers. Botox is used to paralyze or freeze the facial muscles that cause the wrinkles, whereas Restylane works to plump up or fill in the facial lines. This means that most patients will see more natural results with Restylane. Botox can change facial expressions, sometimes subtly but sometimes more pronounced depending on the amount injected and the placement of the drug. Restylane, and other HA fillers, do not affect the underlying muscles so the face can move through the full range of facial expressions. Your looks remain under your control.
Restylane can also stimulate new collagen growth in facial tissue. Collagen is what gives skin the elasticity to bounce back after each movement and helps to prevent wrinkles from forming. The more collagen in the skin tissue, the younger the skin appears. Dr. Dominic Castellano, board-certified plastic facial surgeon, has seen studies on Restylane that show that the injections generated an increase in dermal elasticity and also a decrease in skin surface roughness. This is one reason why Dr. Dominic chooses to use Restylane to treat certain facial wrinkles as well as to add volume to provide a more natural youthfulness. “While there are now a variety of dermal fillers available, there are benefits of using Restylane in treating specific areas of the face,” says Dr. Dominic.
Where is Restylane Available as a Treatment for Reducing Facial Wrinkles?
Dermal fillers are now being dispensed through a widening circle of providers in the Tampa area. However, it is always best to work with a plastic surgeon or dermatologist that has a good understanding of facial muscles, bone structure as well as lots of experience using dermal fillers. All experts agree that while Restylane is very safe, it should always be injected by a well-qualified technician that is specifically trained on its use and that the treatments take place in an accredited medical facility.
