In order to feel and look young there are several procedures available nowadays, some of them are more effective and permanent than others. Not all of them include going under the knife and suffer from slow and painful recoveries.
Dermal fillers are an example of how to look younger in a quick and almost painless way.
As time passes by, skin loses it fill and becomes saggy and wrinkles appear. Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient present in the skin matrix that tends to get lost over time. Its production lowers as we age. One of the ways to convey a more young looking skin is to give hyaluronic acid back to the skin, in order to restore its hydration, elasticity and filing.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are an affordable and less invasive option than a facelift or other plastic surgery procedure. Through the injection of hyaluronic acid into the skin, the appearance of wrinkles is smooth and less visible, as the injection is made directly into the desired area. Hyaluronic acid injections reduce effectively the visible signs of volume loss, giving the skin a natural look after the treatment.
Restylane is one of the most reputable brands of hyaluronic acid injections trusted by people all over the world. Restylane is available in Europe since 1996, in Canada since 1998 and in the United States since 2003. It is available in 60 countries worldwide.

Restylane is a crystalline gel injected into the skin with the purpose of increasing its volume and recovering the main traits of the face’s structure. Similar to the hyaluronic acid present in our body, because of its non-animal origin, it does not involve the risk of associated allergies and hyper-sensibility of the skin. Treatment with Restylane doesn’t affect the facial expression and its effects can be seen immediately. Free muscle movements are maintained while the treatment lasts.
Results last for a while but are not permanent, a new maintenance treatment maybe necessary 6 to 12 months after the previous application.
