Restylane Hyaluronic Acid Treatment
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a sugar molecule that exists naturally in almost all living organisms. It binds water and can act as lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints. It is also important for the transport of nutrients and in regulating water balance in skin. Natural hyaluronic acid is quickly turned over by the body. However, hyaluronic acid gel used for cosmetic injections, is formulated to last longer by “”cross-linking”” the gel molecules. The gel will be naturally metabolized by the body into water after around 6-18 months (depending on the type of hyaluronic acid gel, and the metabolic rate of the individual). Hyaluronic acid gel can also be quickly degraded by the injection of the enzyme hyaluronidase. This makes hyaluronic acid gel even safer as a dermal filler, as any inadvertent, unfavourable cosmetic results can be quickly reversed. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can be used for: 1. Rejuvenating facial contours Hollowness under eyes Furrows around the nose Puppet lines Hollow Cheeks 2. Enhancing/augmenting facial features (nose, chin, cheeks). Nose: for a straighter profile recreate the youthful roundness of cheeks Correct short chins for a more balanced look 3. Reducing wrinkles and depressed scars Fill up lines on forehead, around mouth or on the neck 4. Improving hydration and firmness of skin By a special “”intradermal”” injecting technique, skin hydration and collagen production can both be improved Duration About 10-20 minutes Efficacy Generally last 9-12 months after the initial treatment. Shown in a clinical study, it may last for 36months with 2 re-treatments.
