Restylane For Natural-Looking Results
Aging is an inevitable thing that every woman has to deal with. As we age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid by our body changes. Our skin can become thinner, dehydrated and less firm, losing its radiance and youthful appearance, and fine lines, we commonly call wrinkles start to appear.
We all want to look and feel our best – both inside and out that is why most of us tried many products for whitening, age defying, wrinkles and many more. Using these kind of products is okay but you can see the result for a longer time. But if you want to achieve an instantly younger appearance, you might be the perfect candidate for dermal fillers.
Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face and hands.
There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. The Restylane range of products is designed to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid keeps our skin hydrated and firm through its ability to bind water molecules.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity, with the help of collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin diminish as we age, causing skin to lose volume, while increasing the chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.
Few weeks ago, I attended the launch of Restylane OBT products at Edsa Shangri-la. The Restylane OBT family of products is a brand of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, which includes Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Volyme, Restylane Kysse. Each is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose.
The great benefit of the Restylane range is that they have two technologies; NASHA and OBT. These have very different characteristics and give a strong complementary range of fillers.
Restylane NASHA (Non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid), firmer gels for lifting and precision and Restylane OBT (Optimal Balance Technology), are the more flexible and softer gels for contouring and expression. Thanks to the high flexibility of these products they move with the animation of the face, and suited for finer lines.
Restylane OBT is available as VOLYME and DEFYNE intended for volumizing and contouring effects. REFYNE are suited for finer lines and wrinkles. KYSSE can give volumization with flexibility perfect for lips, the most animated area of the face.
The flexibility is a property that describes the ability of a gel to move with the animation of the face, explaining natural results. Unlike other soft fillers in the market, our gels create a natural-looking finish. We are also first with this and we can show with science how the dermatologist/cosmetic surgeon can achieve natural results. We also know that one of the greatest barriers for consumers to try dermal fillers is the fear of looking unnatural. And this is something all patients will love – to look natural.
- Restyle Volyme is designed to create and intensify high volume lifting effect in the face. The ageing process can result in loss of face volume in cheekbones and the chin, which can then be restored by Restylane Volyme.
- Restylane Kysse is a dermal filler for lip enhancement. The product is designed to enhance lip volume and add definition to lip contours to create soft, natural looking lips.
- Restylane Refyne integrates with your skin to help smooth out the lines that run alongside the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) and the flexibility you need for natural-looking movement and expressions.
- Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deeper lines around your mouth (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) while letting you look more natural through a range of facial expressions.
It is normal to experience some post-treatment discomfort, such as redness, swelling, pain, itching or tenderness at the treatment site. These generally disappear within one week after treatment. Other potential side effects can occur which you need to discuss with your healthcare practitioner. Following a treatment, there is sometimes a need for touch-up treatment to achieve an optimal result. With over 20 years of clinical experience, Restylane has an established safety profile and reliable results that you can count on.
As Restylane is a non-permanent injectable product, the effect gradually diminishes with time. In order to maintain the aesthetic result, maintenance/top-up treatments are recommended. Results may vary depending on the treatment areas.
