Restylane in Chevy Chase, MD
As we age, different parts of the face lose shape and fullness–leading to lines, wrinkles and a less youthful appearance.
In many cases, this is because our bodies aren’t producing as much hyaluronic acid (HA) as they user to.
HA attracts moisture, and less of it means that our features begin to sag and droop.
What Is Restylane?
The Hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal clear gel called NASHA or NON-ANIMAL STABILIZED HYALURONIC ACID.
Restylane is the first cosmetic filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane requires no pretesting.
What Is Restylane Used For?
Restylane can be used to treat nasolabial folds (lines that run from your nose to the corners of the mouth), facial hollowing and fine wrinkling or “crepy” skin underthe eyes.
How Are Restylane Injections Performed?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle.
For lip injection, Dr. Tina B. West uses an advanced “nerve block” technique to avoid patient discomfort.
