Restylane® at The Langdon Center in Guilford: Restores Volume and Fullness in Skin and Lips
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA™ or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
Restylane® is used to treat superficial lines and wrinkles but also more pronounced deeper wrinkles (your laugh lines, for example). Another popular use for Restylane® is lip augmentation or lip enhancement. Restylane® restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds, giving the skin a smoother, more youthful appearance.
What Areas Does Restylane® Treat?
- The lines that appear between your brows (glabella)
- Naso-labial folds (base of the nose to the corner of the mouth)
- Lip Enhancement (plumping of the lips)
- Lip Lines (smoker’s lines)
