When you look in the mirror, do you notice lines around the nose, mouth, and chin? As we age, our skin begins to lose elasticity and hyaluronic acid, causing signs of aging to appear. Restylane can work to restore this lost hyaluronic acid for a refreshed, more youthful facial appearance.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler meant to correct lines around the mouth and nose, such as nasolabial folds. The clear gel formula works by binding to water molecules to help create volume under the skin. This volume fills in unwanted lines and wrinkles for smoother skin. Restylane can also be used in the lips to add natural-looking plumpness in patients over the age of 21.
The Restylane Treatment
Before your Restylane treatment, our skincare experts will carefully examine your face to determine which areas should be treated. Then, the areas will be cleaned, and the Restylane will be injected using a small needle. While most patients do not find these injections painful, a topical anesthetic can be applied prior to treatment on request. Results are immediately visible after injections and will improve as swelling resolves.
There is no downtime associated with Restylane injections. Following treatment, common side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, or itching at the injection site, though this should be temporary. Results are immediate and can last up to six months.
