Restylane Injections: What You Should Know

People are living longer than ever these days, and their skin certainly shows it. Certain cultures have the advantage, since they are genetically predisposed to having smooth skin. An excellent example of this is Asian cultures. More often than not, it's almost impossible to figure out, on sight, how old they are!

However, not everyone is that lucky, but they are lucky enough to have the option of getting Restylane injections. Getting Restylane injections can literally take years off of a person's face in just a short amount of time, which makes it one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the Unites States.

So, what are Restylane injections, specifically? They are a series of injections in which dermal filler is inserted into the upper layers of the skin to fill out wrinkles and overall facial fat loss. The injections themselves (they last a few months at a time) are usually done in an office in an hour or so, and so many people actually like to get them during their lunch hour!

Of course, a little redness and swelling will occur immediately after the Restylane injections have been administered, but that should subside quickly. As for side effects, they tend to vary with each person, but there is a chance that there will be a reaction to the Restylane itself. Thus, to ensure that you get the best results possible, make sure that you tell the doctor your medical history, and any other reactions you might have had. Thus way, you can be safe, and wrinkle-free!
