Many of the visible signs of facial aging are due to the loss of volume and elasticity that comes with the breakdown of collagen. Chicago patients of Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery, S.C. (NSPS) can achieve beautiful, natural-looking correction of wrinkles, lines, and folds by replacing lost volume with injectable dermal fillers. At our plastic surgery practice in Chicago, lost collagen can be replaced with any of the major dermal fillers, including RESTYLANE® Injectable Gel
RESTYLANE® is typically used for treating lines and folds on the face, particularly the tear trough region which contributes to the look of dark circles under the eyes. This product is composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that can be found in the body normally, and provides volume and binds moisture beneath the skin. There is very little risk of allergic reaction with RESTYLANE, as it is completely biocompatible and biodegradable. RESTYLANE® is harmlessly eliminated by the body over 6 to 9 months.
