Are your cheeks sagging? Do you have deep frown lines or crow’s feet? These can be annoying and unattractive, but fortunately, they can be remedied. Injections of Restylane—a filler made from hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our bodies—can help restore a healthy, youthful appearance by filling in wrinkles and plumping up thinning or sagging facial areas. It is also used to give more definition to the lip border.

Restylane has proven to be a popular procedure, as patients are up and about immediately after treatment. The procedure is fast, requires little recovery time and produces immediate results—although it is important to remember that the results are not permanent. You will need to attend follow-up treatments every six months or so. Unlike other fillers, like collagen, Restylane contains no animal proteins, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction to the proteins.

Is This Procedure for You?

Restylane is suitable for people of all ages. Those who are pregnant or breastfeeding or are under the age of 18 should speak with Dr. Moore, as there may be risks associated with the treatment. Individuals who suffer keloid formation or hypertrophic scarring should not use Restylane.
