    Juvederm is one of the more popular filler brands out there but another filler brand that has begun to peak the interest of many patients is that of Restylane fillers. Restylane has been around since being FDA approved in 2003. Restylane fillers are non-surgical, FDA-approved, fillers used to instantly smooth away moderate to severe wrinkles like smile lines (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth) as well as plump the lips and restore lost volume for a fresher, more youthful appearance. They are a clear, non-animal-based, biodegradable gel substance composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that naturally exists in the body. The word "acid" may sound scary; however, hyaluronic acid isn't harsh or damaging at all, in fact it's the opposite. For smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, and improving other facial features, Restylane injections are a growing favorite.

 

    Restylane is administered at the dermatology office and is ideal for patients who are 35-60 years of age and want to restore that youthful glow to their skin. Results are fully evident within one week. Restylane has a success rate for reducing or eliminating deep wrinkles that cannot be accomplished with other procedures such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Restylane not only fills in wrinkles, but also moisture and lubrication to the skin, so the skin not only looks younger but feels younger as well. It gives patients a very natural and healthy look! Restylane requires only a few injections and no incisions or removal of tissue, so the risk of complications is quite low. Since Restylane treatments require no incisions and involves a very easy recovery process, it is very rare for a potential patient to be excluded for medical reasons, however all of this will be discussed when you schedule a consultation with either Kristen or myself.

 

    So, a common question I get when I mention this product is what areas of the face can be treated with Restylane? Virtually any area of facial skin can be treated with one of the various Restylane dermal fillers offered at Pine Belt Dermatology & Skin Cancer Center. Creases, deep folds, and light wrinkles can all be lessened through the use of Restylane. Laugh lines and fine mouth lines are among the most popular targets for the injections. Among other popular applications of Restylane is its use as a lip filler, where it can enhance volume and shape for months after treatment. In short, any area of the face that lacks volume, shape, or smoothness can experience improvement through Restylane injections.

 

Restylane Products We Offer, What They Do, & What It Cost:

 

 

    There has been significant popularity in the use of lip and dermal fillers over recent years. In the past, these, along with other cosmetic products such as Botox, were only used among middle aged adults who began seeing age changes in their facial features. However, the recent increase in utilization can be attributed to many members of the younger generations looking to modify their lips and other facial features to achieve a more voluptuous look. These trends have increase the popularity of lip fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. Luckily, for patients in the Hattiesburg, Mississippi area, Pine Belt Dermatology offers both products. We may even offer discounts from time to time, so give Kristen Richardson or myself a call today!
