A natural substance in the skin called hyaluronic acid keeps our skin moist and full. As we age, our body produces less hyaluronic acid, causing our skin to wrinkle and crease as volume is lost.

Restylane® is a popular dermal filler available here at the Santa Barbara Plastic Surgery Center that is composed of a special form of hyaluronic acid. The solution is injected into the skin below wrinkles and creases where volume has been lost, and can ultimately work to smooth these areas. Restylane® also can “plump up” lips for a fuller, more attractive look.

Unlike some other skin fillers, Restylane® requires no skin test prior to treatment. Restylane® can be used to restore fullness to lips, facial lines, and nasolabial folds. You can achieve a smoother, more youthful appearance in just one treatment. Results last 6 months and sometimes even longer. It’s quick and easy, the recovery time is minimal, and the results are often immediate.
