Hyaluronic acid is a very important part of good skin health. This naturally occurring substance in the body moisturizes the tissues and preserves youthful volume.
The body loses hyaluronic acid over time as a result of the aging process and environmental factors. But fortunately, you can now restore it using Restylane injections at Houston Oculofacial.
The Role of Hyaluronic Acid in Skin Health
Hyaluronic acid supports the structure of the skin and aids the process of repairing the tissues. The elastin and collagen that provide the skin with stability and youthfulness require hyaluronic acid for support. It also offers cushioning for the skin layers.
Once the reserves of hyaluronic acid become low, signs of damage begin to appear on the face. Lines and wrinkles can form around the mouth and the cheeks. Loss of moisture from the skin causes the skin to lose its natural glow and suppleness. Without hyaluronic acid, the skin can also begin to lose volume.
sing Restylane Injections for Youthful Skin
Restylane is a type of filler that contains hyaluronic acid. When injected into the skin, it can plump the skin and smooth away the wrinkles. Injecting hyaluronic acid can make the skin elastic and radiant.
Hyaluronic acid has the property to meld with molecules of water. When supplementing it through Restylane injections, it attracts water molecules and immediately fills in wrinkles. Restylane offers instant results when injected into the skin.
Dr. Sami can use Restylane to treat mild facial creases and deep wrinkles. Restylane has been specially formulated to use around the eyes, nose, and mouth. You can also use it to enhance your lips.
Benefits of Using Restylane Injections at Houston Oculofacial
Results from Restylane can last for six months to a year depending on your skin’s health. The results also look natural, since you are injecting a substance in the skin that already exists in the body; your skin won’t take on an artificial look after using Restylane. Your expressions will look natural and won’t appear frozen.
There are no risks of allergies or adverse reactions after using Restylane. The body will not treat it as a foreign substance, since Restylane doesn’t contain any animal proteins. Some people can have allergic reactions from animal proteins used in skin cosmetic and treatments. With Restylane, you don’t have to worry about such concerns.
Restylane is a safe procedure with no side effects. You may have a bit of redness on the skin after the treatment, but it fades away quickly. It has been approved the by the FDA to use on the skin.
Treatment using Restylane injections at Houston Oculofacial can be completed within 15 to 20 minutes depending on the skin’s condition. You can return to your normal routine right after the treatment without any downtime.
