The operating principle of Restylane
Hyaluronic acid - substance of animal origin not containing protein contaminants. This material is a part of the lymph, blood, skin and bone of the human body. Over time, the amount of hyaluronic acid in the organism decreases. As part of this acid product Restylane filler plays the role of a temporary action.
Acid molecules easily bind moisture. Thanks to hyaluronic acid skin gets the necessary water, its tissue become elastic. However, over time the amount of acid in the human body is reduced and the water in the cells of the skin becomes less. Reduced skin turgor gives rise to folds and wrinkles.
Replenish moisture helps the introduction of Restylane into the skin cells. The preparation is used for getting rid of folds and wrinkles on the face, as well as from various skin defects. Restylane injections entered in the facial muscles, intradermally or subcutaneously provide wrinkles. Preparation fills voids and hollows and retain water in the skin tissues. Under its influence the skin tissue becomes more extensive and flexible. After the introduction of Restylane gel mass by water increases in volume. The skin over the injection area is smoothed, leveled, wrinkles disappear or are greatly reduced. Additionally, the drug Restylane stimulates metabolic processes in all layers of the skin.
Time Spent Restylane in tissues of the skin depends on many factors, ranging from eight months to a year, after which the drug is completely degraded to carbon dioxide and water. Restylane not prevent the movement of oxygen, hormones, sugars and trace elements.
