Tired of your facial wrinkles and folds? Restylane® is a minimally invasive, non-surgical solution that will smooth them away and produce natural-looking results.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler—or facial injection treatment—for smoothing away wrinkles and folds. It is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid—a natural substance that is already present throughout the body. But as we age, our bodies produce less of it. Restylane works like your body’s own hyaluronic acid in your skin.
What’s the Process?
We take the following steps to help you reach your aesthetic goals:
- Before your first treatment, we will review your medical and prescription history to ensure you’re a candidate for Restylane.
- You’ll have a consultation with one of our doctors to discuss your aesthetic goals, answer your questions, and ensure you understand the results you can expect.
- Your face will be examined to identify the locations for the injections that will give you the best results.
- We’ll take photographs of your face for comparison after treatment.
- In advance of your appointment, we’ll ensure you have post-treatment instructions.
- On the day of treatment, we will apply a disinfectant to your face, apply a topical anesthetic to the injection areas, and mark the injection sites.
- One of our doctors will inject tiny amounts of gel into your skin. The average treatment time is 15 to 20 minutes but can vary, depending on your aesthetic goals and the areas that need to be treated.
- We will cleanse your skin after treatment.
You might experience mild side effects, including:
- Itching or tenderness
We will review post-treatment instructions with you as a reminder of how you can increase your comfort and promote healing.
How Long Will the Results Last?
- You’ll see the improvement almost immediately. As the redness and swelling decrease, it will be even more noticeable.
- Depending on which areas of your face are treated, the results last six to twelve months. Before you begin treatment, your doctor will let you know how long the results will last.
- Follow-up treatments are needed to maintain the results.
