How long do Restylane fillers last?
Restylane fillers typically last anywhere from five to 12 months for patients. With that being said, there are several different types of Restylane fillers, including Restylane Original for signs of facial aging, Restylane Kysse and Silk for lip augmentation, Restylane Lyft for cheek and hand augmentation, and Restylane Refyne and Defyne for nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and chin projection. As such, the length of time that the results from a Restylane filler will last generally depends on a few different factors, including the type of filler that is used, how well the patient’s skin responds to treatment, and several lifestyle habits or choices.
Our providers at Maki Wellness Center can let you know how long to expect results to last and when to schedule a follow-up appointment when you come to our clinic for a Restylane injection appointment.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is a cosmetic product that boasts several hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers and injectables for the improvement of a broad range of cosmetic blemishes and issues in the facial region and hands. The operative ingredient in these fillers, hyaluronic acid, is a type of sugar molecule that naturally occurs in our body, with the highest concentrations located in the fluid around the eyes and joints. As such, Restylane injections are a safe treatment with natural ingredients. To that extent, Restylane injections have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in subdermal facial tissues and hand augmentation. The complete list of areas that Restylane injections can be used in include the cheeks, lips, perioral area (around the mouth), chin, and hands.
Does Restylane build collagen?
The presence of hyaluronic acid in Restylane injections stimulates an increased production of collagen and elastin in the treatment area. Collagen and elastin are both fibrous proteins produced in our body to help with wound healing. They are also essential to the structural integrity of every connective tissue in our body, including our bones, cartilage, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and yes, our skin! As such, the increased production of collagen and elastin with Restylane injections will help to improve the appearance and health of your skin.
Moreover, one of the primary reasons for facial aging signs and lost volume in our cheeks, lips, and hands is due to diminished collagen and elastin production that naturally occurs as we age. With that in mind, Restylane injections are a powerful anti-aging solution to help your skin looking fresh, young, and bright!
What is Restylane used for?
There are numerous cosmetic issues that Restylane is used for! Some of the most common uses of Restylane injections include the following:
- Lost volume in the cheeks, often referred to as hollow cheeks, as well as the lips or hands
- Marionette lines, which are also referred to as puppet lines
- Moderate to severe fine lines and wrinkles
- Nasolabial folds, also referred to as laugh lines, parenthesis lines, or smile lines
- Skin laxity in and around the cheeks
