New Orleans, LA dermatologist explains the benefits of RestylaneBy Dr. Mary Lupo
Restylane is a dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid, which is used to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles on the face. It was the first FDA-approved HA filler and is a safe, cosmetic treatment that gives patients the ability to look younger and feel better about their appearance. Injections last approximately six to 12 months, and maintenance injections can be done to maintain the results achieved and slow the signs of aging. Larger volumes achieve longer duration of results.
There are many benefits of Restylane. First and foremost, Restylane reduces the appearance of mild to moderate lines and wrinkles on the face in a non-invasive manner, without the need for a surgical face-lift or other invasive treatments. Restylane can be used in conjunction with injections such as Botox and Dysport. These medications are used to reduce contractions of muscles to smooth specific areas of the face. Restylane is affordable for most patients, although it is not covered by insurance, as it is strictly a cosmetic procedure. The team at Dr. Mary Lupo’s practice can work with patients to determine the best way to finance treatment if necessary.
Many patients love the benefits Restylane provides, and can provide positive testimonials in regards to the results they have achieved.
