What is Restylane? – Chicago, Schaumburg & Naperville
Restylane is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which can be found naturally in our body. As we age the HA content in our body tends to decrease which contributes to the loss of elasticity of our skin. Also,as we age, the volume of fat in our face tends to decrease and shift. Both of these problems lead to lines and wrinkles.
An injection of Restylane at problem spots on your face like the nasolabial folds, the corner of your mouth and lips will restore the volume and reduce these fine lines to almost invisible levels and give you the appearance of smooth skin. Since there are no incisions, the downtime is generally very brief.
