Some patients are looking for a longer lasting treatment for wrinkles and/or thin lips. Restylane®, administered at our Chicago North Shore practice in Evanston, can reduce fine lines and wrinkles or enhance lip size for a longer duration than its collagen counterpart — results often last up to six months or more.
Restylane® is a non-animal based, biodegradable gel that is injected into the skin in very small amounts. Treatment with Restylane® at our Evanston Medical Spa can be completed within an hour, and the procedure does not require a prior skin test. As opposed to animal-based fillers, Restylane® does not break down quickly in the body, so patients enjoy longer lasting results. And since it’s made from an acid that occurs naturally in the body, there is no risk of allergic reaction in patients with animal allergies.
A non-surgical treatment, Restylane® works to rejuvenate skin for a younger, healthier look. Using a clear hyaluronic acid-based gel, Dr. Geoffrey Fenner injects the tissue underneath the skin, causing the tissue to swell in the treated area. Patients who receive Restylane® treatment at our Chicago practice will notice fine lines and wrinkles diminish as their skin appears smoother and more lubricated. As the tissue expands, the surface skin becomes firmer and looks younger.
Restylane® is a popular treatment at our Chicago practice for long lasting lip enhancement as well. Patients enjoy fuller lips for six months to a year before needing another treatment, and Restylane® injections are relatively inexpensive.
If you’re considering treatment to reduce facial wrinkles or enhance your lips, inquire about Restylane®. Our Chicago North Shore Medical Spa in Evanston offers medically supervised skin care treatment in a soothing, luxurious atmosphere.
