We all respond differently to the aging process, which is exactly why Dr. Guy Cappuccino offers so many ways to address its presence. If you’re interested in taking care of fine lines and wrinkles without any kind of significant recovery period or downtime, Restylane may very well be the option for you.
How Exactly Does Restylane Work?
Hyaluronic acid, or “HA” for short, is a compound that your body makes naturally, on its own. As you age, however, your skin produces less and less of this important compound, leading to a loss of volume, which can often be accompanied by lines, wrinkles, and a somewhat “crepey” appearance.
Restylane and other dermal fillers work to address these issues by restoring that lost volume via a synthetic form of hyaluronic acid. Not only does this work to physically plump the treatment areas, but it also encourages your skin to remain hydrated and maintain its volume naturally, so your refreshed look is impossible to miss.
The product will be injected into the treatment area very carefully, as part of a process that only takes about 15 to 30 minutes to complete, depending on your treatment area. Most patients find the injections to be quite comfortable, and we’ll be more than happy to help you out with a topical numbing agent. Once you’re done, you’ll be able to return to your routine just about right away. Some minor redness and swelling in the treatment area will be the extent of your downtime. You’ll be able to enjoy your results for six to nine months, and we’ll set up follow-up appointments so you can be sure to maintain your results. Dr. Cappuccino and his staff offer the full range of Restylane products including: Restylane L, Lyft, Kysse, Contour, Defyne, and Refyne.
