What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It can also be used to plump the lips and diminish the appearance of scars.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals who have fine lines or deep facial creases, mid-face volume loss, or thinning lips may be able to benefit from Restylane. Ideal candidates will be in overall good health, understand the potential risk of the treatment, and have realistic expectations for the outcome of their treatment. A consultation is required to determine candidacy.
The Restylane Treatment
Most patients can tolerate Restylane injections well, however, a topical anesthetic can be applied to treatment areas to ensure comfort. Then, a small, thin needle is used to inject Restylane into the targeted areas. This process typically takes between 15-30 minutes to complete. Our certified cosmetic injectors will help you determine the best treatment available to achieve a naturally beautiful enhancement.
There is no downtime required following a Restylane treatment, so patients can return to their everyday routines right away. Temporary side-effects may include bruising, redness, and swelling, which will resolve with time. Results can last from six to nine months.
