Restylane

Restylane Gives You Smoother and Younger-looking Skin that Radiates Confidence.

Restylane dermal filler creates and enhances youthful and glowing skin. Get rid of acne scars, volumize and plump up your cheeks, define your lips, get rid of fine lines and deep wrinkles, and reduce dark circles under your eyes.

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is designed to mimic your body’s naturally-produced hyaluronic acid. It is used to combat signs of aging, leaving skin looking young, firm, and supple by adding volume and fullness.

Restylane can correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds that appear on the skin due to aging or environmental factors. Folds such as nasolabial folds (the creases that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth) and marionette lines (age lines that run from the mouth to the chin) can be visibly improved with Restylane. Restylan can also be used to enhance the lips and make them more plump and full.

How Restylane Works

Restylane is injected under the skin in areas where you there have been losses of collagen and healthy tissue. This causes the skin to be smoothed out and lifted. The injected hyaluronic acid clings to the skin and provides and attracts moisture that gives enhances volume.

What are the Advantages of Restylane?

Restylane takes effect immediately to give you smooth, wrinkle-free, more full, and youthful skin. The effects can be seen during the following two weeks and last anywhere between 6 to 18 months, depending on the number of treatments and injection site.

This miracle dermal filler can be used on many areas on the face, as well as on the earlobes and the skin on hands and feet. Restylane is FDA approved and has a very low risk of side effects. You can expect natural-looking results after your Restylane treatment.

Before and After

What Can I Expect During the Treatment?

Here are some frequently asked questions regarding treatment with Restylane:

  • Which Restylane product is most appropriate for my treatment?
  • What can be done to help me feel comfortable during my treatment?
  • How long will the procedure last?
  • What are the risks associated with Restylane treatment?
  • What care is recommended after Restylane treatment?

The treatment procedure usually takes less than an hour. This of course, can vary from person to person, but there is generally very minimal downtime, and you can go back to your normal activities immediately after treatment. We will discuss using topical pain medication to ensure you are as comfortable as possible during the procedure.

The treatment area will be cleaned with an antiseptic and prepped for treatment. Restylane dermal filler is then injected into the skin using an ultra-fine needle. The amount of Restylane injected into a site will depend on how much is required to get the expected results.

A Restylane Product for Every Need.

There are several Restylane products available, and each one targets a particular area.

  • Restylane Silk – Used for lip augmentation and wrinkles around the mouth
  • Restylane Lyft – Used for cheek augmentation, midface contour deficiencies, and laugh lines, provides fullness and volume

  • Restylane Defyne – Used for wrinkles around the mouth and nose
  • Restylane-L – Used to plump up and add volume to your face and also resolve moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds

What You Can Expect After Treatment

Restylane treatment is considered a relatively painless procedure. We will take steps to help minimize discomfort during your treatment. Nevertheless, some patients still experience one or more of the following symptoms following their injections:

  • Redness
  • Pain
  • Bruising
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Itching
  • Lumps and bumps

If used on the back of the hands to get rid of wrinkles, you might experience itching at the injection site. All these side effects are temporary and last for less than a week in the nasolabial folds and less than two weeks in the lips. If you are less than 36 years of age, there is also a higher chance that you may experience swelling.

Post-treatment you will be advised to apply cold compresses to reduce any swelling. You should also avoid exposure to heat, sunlight, sunlamps, sun beds and sunbathing. Recovery time is normally less than a day, and you can resume normal activities as soon as you feel better.
