Hyaluronic Acid Gel Fillers
Restylane is one of the highly effective hyaluronic acid based fillers we offer at UCI Plastic Surgery for the treatment of facial wrinkles and folds.
Reasons to Choose Restylane
Your skin will not look the same forever. Eventually, as your skin loses volume and elasticity, signs of aging such as lines and wrinkles will develop. It’s just one of the unfortunate and unavoidable parts of aging. It happens to everyone.
Restylane is a dermal filler designed to restore volume beneath the skin using hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a substance that is naturally found in your skin and is plentiful in younger skin. As you age and lose hyaluronic acid, your skin becomes more likely to wrinkle or fold. Restylane replenishes your skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid and fills in the area beneath these signs of aging to achieve a smoother, younger appearance.
Restylane can help correct several common skin flaws and signs of aging, including:
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds
- Thinning lips
Patients who are unhappy with thin lips can benefit from a non-surgical lip enhancement treatment using the Restylane filler. During your consultation, we will determine if Restylane is the right filler for you, or if you may benefit from an alternative treatment, such as Juvederm or Botox.
How Restylane Works
Once your target wrinkles and folds have been identified, Restylane can be carefully injected into the area beneath the skin. The clear, hyaluronic acid gel is used to fill in the area, helping to instantly smooth away the lines and wrinkles at the surface. It works just like your skin’s own natural supply of hyaluronic acid.
You will notice significant improvements to your skin immediately following your treatment, and it does not require any downtime. Some slight redness or irritation may occur, but this will pass in less than a week. Our Costa Mesa Restylane patients often look years younger after treatment and will continue to see results for up to a full year with optimal treatment.
