Aging, weight loss, or illness can cause the face to lose its moisture content and fat, which can leave facial features looking hollow, sagging, and wrinkled. As you inject Restylane Volyme into the subcutaneous layer, the hyaluronic acid binds moisture to provide volume within the skin. This helps to fill and lift the skin, adding plumpness back to facial features such as the cheeks.
Restylane Volyme is cross-linked to resist breaking down within the skin, and the results of 1 treatment can last about 6 to 9 months, and possibly even as long as 12 months. The results of a Restylane Volyme injection are immediate as the hyaluronic acid instantly binds moisture within the skin to create volume.
