Most people have a deep desire to look young forever and never take that step into old age. Even though It’s a part of life, our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as vibrant and smooth as it used to.

Given the kind of stress and pressure people face everyday, people have started to encounter the early signs of aging much earlier than they’re used to. The visible wrinkles and fine lines rob us of our youthful look.

In some people facial aging actually begins in their 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both genetic and external factors like sun exposure, smoking, and stress. Losing your youthful good looks is a part of the natural aging process, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t age with grace.

The evolution of cosmetic procedures have made it much easier to maintain your youthful good looks as you age. If wrinkles and fine lines have become a source of worry, cosmetic treatments have come a long way in helping people restore their lost youthful appearance.

Dermal fillers like Restylane is one of the treatments that can help in restoring the skin’s youthfulness. Restylane is a minimally-invasive injectable treatment that will help you obtain a more aesthetically pleasing appearance without having to under surgery.

Why Does the Skin Lose Its Youthful Appearance?

The reason behind our skin’s aging process is something we need to understand. As we become older, the inner layer of the skin or the dermis begins to get thinner. The elastin and collagen fibres, that allow the skin to maintain its natural shape after it stretches begins to decrease in production as time goes by.

The decrease in collagen results in less elasticity. The glands that are supposed to keep the skin moisturized, start producing less oil which in turn makes our skin drier and prone to external damage. Factors such as being exposed to harsh sun rays, smoking, too much of sugar-intake, and an unhealthy diet also make the skin age faster.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a cosmetic injectable that can be used to improve moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, like the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). It fights the effects of aging on the skin to help achieve a youthful look that’s natural and long-lasting. Restylane can also be used to plump up the lips.

How Does Restylane Work?

Restylane is an FDA approved solution for replenishing the HA levels naturally found in your body to produce more firm and youthful looking skin. It is in the form of a clear gel formulation consisting of hyaluronic acid that is specifically designed to use the rejuvenating properties to bring back one’s youthful and vibrant skin.

Hyaluronic Acid is naturally produced in young, youthful skin. As you grow older, the levels of HA naturally produced by your body diminishes. When Restylane is injected into the upper layers of the skin, it deeply hydrates and nourishes it. The hyaluronic acid gel is implanted into the outer layers of the skin using microinjections and it works naturally to hydrate the skin from within, making the skin look youthful and more beautiful than ever.
