Restylane is a stabilized hyaluronic acid that does not contain animal raw materials. Hyaluronic acid is a protein-sugar complex and is the main substance of the connective tissue, which has the ability to retain water and where the cells of the skin live. When injected into the skin, it combines with the body’s own hyaluronic acid to create volume. With this volume, lips are plumped, lines, wrinkles and facial folds are treated. Besides being quick and easy to apply, it allows immediate visible results. Produced as a transparent and colorless gel, hyaluronic acid creates integrity by mixing with your own skin tone when placed on the upper part of your skin.
As people age, the collagen and elastic fibers under the skin begin to break down and age, and wrinkles become deeper and deeper as these fibers and hyaluronic acid production decrease. While these breakouts are part of our natural aging process, excessive frowning, squinting, smoking, smiling, and other facial expressions also contribute to breakouts. The most widely used procedure for filling facial wrinkles is hyaluronic acid treatment.
The areas where hyaluronic acid injection is made are the areas where the body’s own hyaluronic acid density decreases. It provides treatment by creating volume in the injected areas. The results are noticeable as soon as it’s done, but it fits better day by day due to its compatibility with the skin and the surrounding area of the injection site.
As with Botox treatment, hyaluronic acid treatment is also referred to as a “lunch break” procedure. It is usually applied in less than 20 minutes.
Hyaluronic acid is applied by injecting it into the dermis with its own sterile injector, into the area under the wrinkle. The number of injections required varies depending on the depth and length of the wrinkle. Several injections may be required. The most common injection sites; lip-cheek nasolabial areas, lip circles, middle part of the face.
Hyaluronic acid is not of animal origin, like other biodegradable fillers. This filler not only minimizes allergic reactions, but also prevents the transmission of animal-specific diseases to humans. There may be mild swelling in the treated area that lasts for several hours. Light bruises that can be easily covered with make-up can be seen. Allergic reactions are very rare and may be in the form of redness, itching or stiffness at the injection site.
Botox application, vitamin injections, laser and light treatments can be combined with hyaluronic acid applications. In fact, in terms of skin integrity, it is important for the beauty and permanence of the results to be carried out in a controlled and planned manner by following a certain path.
