Anti-Aging - Restylane - Cosmetic Filler

Continuing on my articles about the best antiaging cosmetic fillers, Restylane is a filler used for lips, wrinkles and facial contours such as the nasal labial fold. A Swedish company called Q-Med, a company that develops, produces and markets medical implants manufactures Restylane. It is approved for use as a cosmetic filler by both the FDA in the U.S. and Health Canada

Restylane is used to make lips fuller, fills in deep folds in the face and smoothes wrinkles. It is made from stabilized hyaluronic acid. Restylane creates a soft natural look by filling out volume and smoothing wrinkles.The benefits of Restylane is that it produces natural and longer lasting results. Although the results are not permanent, they last a long time – about six to eight months. This is based on individual factors which, include facial muscle activity, life style and type of skin.

Restylane is safe to use. It is used in over 60 countries worldwide by millions of people. Hyaluronic acid, its chief ingredient is non animal, which makes it safe because there is no opportunity to transfer disease or cause allergic reaction in patients with such sensitivities as allergies to eggs, chicken or beef. The Restylane substance is both biodegradable and stabilized .. It is made under the most stringent sterilized conditions by a patented process in the labs of Q-Med. Hyaluronic acid is a substance which is identical in all species and tissue types.

Restylane is injected in very small amounts into the skin area that requires it. The gel binds to water and is absorbed slowly. In this way, it maintains the results. After about six to eight months you will need to have more Restylane injects to maintain the results. Side effects to Restylane injections include: discoloration and tenderness at the site of injection, redness, swelling, itching, and perhaps slight pain. Unless you require it, it is not necessary to have local anesthetic. Only about one in 2000 people may have sensitivity reactions which can start a day or two after the injection.

Consult with an experienced doctor about Restylane injections and cosmetic surgery. to find out if Restylane will work for you. As far as natural antiaging tips go, the cosmetic filler Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance in the body. Cosmetic wrinkle fillers are not totally natural, but sometimes we need a little extra help fighting the hands of time.
