Those with darker complexions, including African-Americans and Native Americans, have long shied away from surgical rejuvenation, as the risk of irregular or raised scarring is much higher with these skin types. More and more men and women of color are turning to hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane to restore volume in facial tissues and to sculpt in more youthful features. Most commonly, these ethnicities are treated in areas that hollow with age, such as the lower eyelid, the tear trough and the mid-face region.
Because it is colorless, Restylane does not alter the skin tone, nor does it cast any shadows. Because it is an injectable, scarring is almost unheard of with treatment by an experienced plastic surgeon or dermatologist.
