How Long Does Restylane® Last?
One of the best ways to take years off your face is by using dermal fillers. Not to be confused with other injectable treatments, dermal fillers can add volume to your face, smoothing out fine lines at the same time. You will find many different dermal filler brands on the market, but Restylane® is one of the most popular.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is the brand name of a family of dermal fillers that can be injected to correct facial volume loss. All of these fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which binds with collagen in your skin to make it appear plumper and more nourished. As you age, your hyaluronic stores decrease inside your body, so these injections give you a boost.
This differs vastly from Botox®, which is another injectable treatment that regularly gets mentioned alongside dermal fillers like Restylane®. The two are completely different products, though they both will combat the signs of aging.
The concentration of hyaluronic acid varies depending on the specific Restylane® product you’re using. Also, there may be additional components included as well, which can target different aesthetic issues.
How Long Restylane® Products Last
As a general overview, we can say that the Restylane® range lasts between 6-18 months. However, this varies greatly between the products, with some lasting significantly longer than others.
This product is specifically developed for the back of the hands and cheeks. It contains 0.3% lidocaine, making it unique when compared to other products in the family. Following this injection, you can expect to see improvements for up to 6 months in the back of your hands, and 12 months in your cheeks.
Restylane® Refyne is mainly used around the corners of your mouth to target nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Results have been shown to last for up to 12 months with this injectable.
The next member of the family is a more potent version of Refyne and will be injected deeper within the skin. Again, you will see up to 12 months of anti-aging benefits.
Lastly, Restylane® Silk is predominantly reserved for treating the mouth and lips. It can leave your lips looking a lot fuller while ironing outlines around your mouth at the same time. You can enjoy your rejuvenated appearance for as long as 18 months after this treatment.
Am I a Candidate for Restylane®?
The entire Restylane® range of dermal fillers is FDA-approved and safe for the general population to use. Seeing as they’re made up of hyaluronic acid – which naturally occurs in the body anyway – you shouldn’t have to worry about things like allergic reactions to the injectable solution. Therefore, if you’d like to add volume to your face, get rid of wrinkles, and rejuvenate your appearance, you could be a candidate for any of these treatments. Similarly, if you want to make your hands look younger and more voluminous, Restylane® Lyft could be perfect for you.
Baltic Beauty Centre must stress that these treatments have all only been FDA-approved for people aged 21 and over. If you are under this age limit, you will not be a suitable candidate.
