Wrinkles have long been associated with wisdom, experience, and most of all, age. From the form of the folds of your skin, you can tell if a person has spent majority of his or her life frowning or laughing. Unfortunately, they can also be regarded as unattractive, especially in a society which values youth and beauty. It’s not the fact that you’re not getting younger – it’s that you’re getting older. It’s the question that plagues middle-aged women (and sometimes men) everywhere: How do you get rid of those lines around your eyes?
Restylane is a dermal filler that is so far the only product in its category approved by the FDA. The doctor injects Restylane under eye directly into the wrinkles to “fill” the excess skin with hyaluronic acid – a natural substance found in all living organisms that give your skin its fullness. The product is then absorbed by the dermal tissue to maintain its effect. Swelling and redness are common side effects of the treatment which should subside after you’ve recovered. In six months or so, the body would have then degraded the medication (without any residue). The client can apply the treatment again if he or she wishes.
An advantage with this treatment is that the recovery period is just two to three days. Additionally, its minimal side effects allow you to get back into your daily activities almost immediately after treatment. Skin tests aren’t necessary before undergoing the procedure because of the product’s low allergic potential – possibly because of its all-natural ingredients. Other similar products contain animal-based ingredients that don’t sit well with most people. It also lasts longer than any other collagen treatments available in the market.
Some disadvantages do come with having Restylane under eye treatment. Compared to the relatively safe wrinkle treatment using topical creams, Restylane application is a slightly invasive treatment, involving needles injecting medicine into your body. At around $500 per injection, it’s also very costly. If you have a lot of wrinkles to take care of, you’ll be shelling out more than $1000 for a single treatment session.
The decision to use Restylane under eye treatment, topical creams, or even Botox is really up to you. Restylane is generally more effective than any topical cream which only succeeds in moisturizing your skin for a temporary “puffed” look. And it sounds safer than injecting chemically-manipulated products into your face. Whatever your choice is, remember that keeping your body in its natural state is always the best (and safest) option. Why manipulate something that isn’t broken in the first place? If you’ve given it much thought and you’re still up for wrinkle treatment, then knowing as much as you can about it is the least you could do.
