Restylane Before and After Photos & Results


If you are looking for a safe and reliable product to help smooth your facial wrinkles, consider Restylane. This hyaluronic acid dermal filler is particularly successful for treating facial wrinkles that occur around the mouth and nose. This is the world’s best-selling wrinkle filler and Restylane rewards men and women alike with facial rejuvenation.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that exists in all living organisms. It helps keep our skin and joints lubricated and hydrated. As we age, the amount of natural hyaluronic acid in our body decreases causing us to develop wrinkled skin.

One benefit of Restylane and other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers is that the effects can last anywhere from six months to one year. Unlike volume and collagen fillers, Restylane injections are also less likely to create bumps or lumps in the treated area.  The results are not permanent; the injected material will eventually soften and be absorbed into your body. If you are unhappy with the results, the Restylane treatment can be reversed right away with the enzyme hyaluronidase.

Communication with your doctor is very important on the topic of Restylane before and after treatment to make sure you get the results you want.

Restylane before and after – bags under the eyes

Many of us experience bags or hollows beneath our eyes (called the tear trough) when the aging process depletes our body’s hyaluronic acid and natural fat. The result is that we look tired all the time.

Restylane is the number one hyaluronic acid filler recommended by plastic surgeons for under-eye problems. After injection, the tissue is massaged gently to make sure the gel is evenly distributed and smooth. Aside from remedying under-eye hollows, it achieves good results as an application for treating dark circles as well.

The most exciting aspect of Restylane before and after treatment for bags and hollows under the eyes is that patients are usually extremely pleased with the ease of the procedure and with the results. Restylane is an excellent product for restoring a more youthful appearance to the face.

Other types of dermal fillers may not be equally successful. These include Radiesse, which is difficult to adjust and known to cause lumps and bumps, and Juvederm, which is known to result in excessive swelling. With Restylane such problems are easily remedied; with Radiesse, Juvederm and other fillers reversal can be virtually impossible.

The under-eye area can be a challenging part of the face to treat. There are tiny veins in the tear trough which the doctor may not be able to see clearly when doing the injections. This may cause bruising and swelling after the injections. Most of the time, however, the only evidence of the injections is a few needle pricks that will disappear in a few hours. Cold compresses should help decrease any swelling. It’s very important to find a highly qualified practitioner with the proper experience and technique to improve your chances of getting excellent results.

Restylane before and after – mouth creases and wrinkles

Laugh lines, smile lines and lip wrinkles (nasolabial folds) can occur from dry skin and exposure to the sun. But they mostly occur when our skin ages and begins to lose its elasticity. The skin around our mouths is particularly prone to creases and wrinkles because of the frequent muscle contractions in that area. These problems can make us look much older.

Don’t stop smiling; consider Restylane injections instead! Restylane is used to reduce nasolabial folds and fill in the lines and wrinkles. It can plump up your lips and fill out the folds and creases around the mouth. It works well for patients with thin lips and can dramatically change your appearance for the better. Again, patients are usually extremely satisfied with Restylane before and after for alleviating their laugh lines and lip wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane are clear gels so they will not show through the skin. There are other dermal filler products that may not be as successful. Radiesse is white and may show through if injected superficially. It is also known to cause small lumps which are difficult to adjust. Since Radiesse cannot be reversed or melted away, the bumps may have to be punctured and manually removed.

Results from Restylane injections for laugh lines and lip wrinkles should last 4 to 9 months. The injections should be done in tiny amounts, so you may need to have multiple injections spread over a few days or weeks to get the best results. Results can last over a year with regular use.

Restylane before and after – creases between the brows

Restylane injections can be successful for filling in areas of creasing in the glabellar region between the eyebrows, but extreme caution should be used. It is very important to find a well-qualified physician (preferably board certified) with experience in this area.

Botox is sometimes a better and safer option for these glabellar creases as well as for horizontal lines on the forehead. These types of wrinkles are caused by the animation of the face, such as raising our eyebrows in surprise, and they become more pronounced over the years.  Botox works by weakening or paralyzing the muscle so the lines will soften and possibly disappear.

There are potential complications but they are rare if the procedure is skillfully done. The injections should be superficial; injecting them deeply can cause pressure on the blood vessels. Also, some of the material does leak out because the pores are larger in this area. There is always the risk of vision loss with any procedure around the eye area including injection of fillers.

Restylane before and after – sunken cheeks

Sunken cheeks are a natural byproduct of aging. When you age, you lose fat in your cheeks (and other areas of the face) and this can lead to tissues sinking, wrinkles developing, or folds developing. Obviously this loss of fat can also result from weight loss. Dermal fillers like Restylane are temporary solutions to this problem and typically last from 6 to 12 months.

There are more permanent options like silicone and collagen injections, fat injections, and even silicone implants. The problem with permanent fillers is that they have the potential to cause infections, scars and granulomas (lumps that can form when certain body cells surround foreign material, such as silicone).  These side effects may even occur many years later.

If you are considering permanent solutions, your doctor may encourage you to try a temporary filler such as Restylane first. This will give you the opportunity to see if you like the results before you embark on a more permanent solution. Remember that the effects of Restylane® and other hyaluronic fillers can be reversed with the enzyme hyaluronidase. Permanent fillers (or implants) are just that, permanent.

There is an abundance of Restylane information on the internet. Search for Restylane before and after pictures and photographs. Inspect these Restylane before and after photos to see what may be possible with proper treatment. In your search for a qualified professional to perform the procedure, be sure to ask the doctor specifically for Restylane before and after photos of his or her own patients so you can see how competent the physician is with Restylane injections.
