Your skin is made of two layers, with supporting columns holding them apart. The area in-between includes the clear jelly-like substance hyaluronic acid. While young, the hyaluronic acid is in abundance. As you grow older, the acid between these layers diminishes, and the skin somewhat caves, causing a wrinkle along the line. The wrinkle would be gone if you filled that area back up with the hyaluronic acid jelly-like substance. That’s where Restylane or Hyalaform come in.
They are injected into the skin with a very thin needle and restore the natural volumes underneath the wrinkle. The wrinkle is now lifted up and smoothed out. All of this takes about 30 minutes, leaves no marks or scars, and the results can be seen immediately.
Depending on the results you’d like, you can discuss maintenance with your doctor and the period between injections. Follow up injections typically need less hyaluronic acid to achieve the results you want. Time between injections is typically 6 to 12 months, whereas for collagen it is 3 to 4 months. Another advantage that hyaluronic acid therapy has over collagen is that no pretesting is necessary.
