What causes facial wrinkles?
Wrinkles are part of life - our skin changes as we go. It becomes thinner, loses fat and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. Facial aging actually begins in your 20s, when skin firmness begins to decrease as a result of both internal (genetics and natural aging) and external (sun exposure, smoking, pollution, sleeping positions, etc.) factors.
How long do Restylane treatments last?
With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane; up to 12 months in the cheeks.
