Restylane® is a very popular non-surgical dermal filler. It is well tolerated and is used by over a million patients in the United States and in more than 70 other countries. The results of Restylane® injections generally last approximately six months. Dr. Richard L. Kofkoff of St. Louis, Missouri is experienced in the use of Restylane® to help his patients enhance their appearance.
What is Restylane®
Restylane® is a dermal filler that contains no animal proteins and is made of stabilized hyaluronic acid which is naturally produced in the human body. It has been proven to be safe, effective, and long lasting for clinical use in millions of procedures.
Restylane®'s natural elements remove the risk of allergic reactions to animal-based fillers. It also reduces the risk of disease transmission. It is a clear gel that is biodegradable and has been FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved for use as a cosmetic injection in facial procedures.
Restylane®'s main use is as a dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin. It also reduces the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in facial skin. Restylane®restores skin volume, improves skin elasticity and conceals facial imperfections. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of thinner lips.
How does it Work?
Dr. Kofkoff injects Restylane® into the problem areas of the skin where lines and folds are the most evident, such as the nasolabial folds, which are the lines in the face that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane® reduces the signs of aging and enhances your naturally beautiful features.
Since Restylane® is a natural substance, the body is able to absorb it and it dissolves without any trace left behind. Treatment results are often immediate and last for approximately six months. In some cases, additional treatments may be required depending on the type and location of the treated area and the patient's desired effects.
