Home Restylane® How Restylane can smooth fine lines and wrinkles while adding volume to aging skin

June 30, 2020

| emmett plastic surgeryWhile plastic surgery solutions such as brow lifts and facelifts can address the unwanted signs of aging, patients with mild to moderate aging skin may benefit from non-surgical solutions also available to them at Emmett Plastic Surgery. Dr. Jennifer Emmett and her team of professionals are here to help patients choose treatments that suit their unique needs. If patients are considering a non-surgical approach to addressing fine lines and wrinkles, our team may recommend cosmetic injectables such as Restylane.

How Restylane works

Restylane is one of many injectables used by dermatologists and plastic surgeons to combat aging skin without surgical interventions. Restylane is a gel-like substance that is formulated with hyaluronic acid, or “HA.” This ingredient is naturally found in the skin. It holds water and adds volume. The same concept is applied by using injectable hyaluronic acid. The ingredient draws and holds water molecules, which in turn smooth fine lines and wrinkles. The results often last several months before reinjection is needed. By using injectables such as Restylane, patients can delay the need for plastic surgery and find a less invasive solution that suits their needs.

Why choose Restylane?

Restylane allows patients to achieve desired results without invasive surgical interventions. Instead, patients with mild signs of aging can address the specific wrinkles and folds around the face that may be resulting in an older appearance. With reinjections, patients can slow their aging and maintain a more youthful look longer than without cosmetic treatments. Dr. Jennifer Emmett recommends Restylane because it is:

  • FDA approved
  • Safe and effective
  • Long-lasting
  • Natural-looking
  • Affordable
  • Non-invasive
  • Non-surgical

What areas of the face can Restylane treat?

There are many ways in which Restylane can be used to fill wrinkles and folds. The injections are commonly used on areas to treat the:

  • Cheeks
  • Lips
  • Lip lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Marionette lines
  • Tear troughs
  • Crow’s feet
