Wrinkles of the skin are incredibly common, as they are a natural part of the aging process. However, for many people, wrinkles can keep them from feeling like their most beautiful, confident selves. Thankfully, due to dermal fillers like Restylane®, it’s possible to achieve a more vibrant, youthful look, allowing you to tackle the world feeling comfortable in your own skin.

What Is Restylane®?

Restylane is a type of injectable dermal filler. Like other dermal fillers, this treatment is FDA-approved, meaning it’s a safe and effective option for patients looking to revitalize their skin. Its primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body that is responsible for the production of collagen. Collagen is essential because it helps the skin maintain a plump appearance. This filler can add volume to areas of the face that have lost elasticity, and it can also urge the body to produce more collagen. Satisfaction rates with this treatment are very high, and we specialize in using dermal fillers like Restylane to improve the lives of our patients on a daily basis. 

Who Is a Candidate for Restylane?

Good candidates for Restylane are people looking to revitalize the appearance of facial skin through a noninvasive procedure. Candidates are people who are in good health and do not have allergies to any of Restylane’s ingredients. They should also be ready to talk about their medical history so we can make sure that there aren’t any underlying conditions present that might make the treatment or the healing process more difficult. Ideal candidates are open about their goals and expectations and are willing to work with us to determine a desired outcome and whether this treatment is the right step toward achieving it. 

What to Expect During a Restylane Treatment

During your consultation, we’ll let you know if you need to temporarily stop taking any medications before the day of the treatment. You should also avoid anti-inflammatory drugs that can increase bleeding and bruising. We’ll give you a preparation plan beforehand so you can be ready on the day of the treatment.

Restylane treatment can typically be done in under 30 minutes, making it an exceptionally convenient option for busy patients. A numbing cream or topical anesthetic might be applied, but Restylane also has a built-in numbing agent to reduce any discomfort. Using a very fine needle, we’ll inject the treatment into your skin, massaging as we go and evaluating to determine if more injections are needed to achieve desired results.

Restylane Aftercare

Full results can usually be seen in a couple of weeks, after the filler has been given time to distribute and settle. Some light bruising and swelling for the initial recovery period is not uncommon. Results will usually last for up to 6 months, and follow-up appointments should be scheduled to refresh the treatment. Our team will give you a detailed plan on how to minimize discomfort and ensure a smooth healing process.
