Restylane is a collection of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. It is one of the most popular brands of injectable wrinkle fillers because it treats several concerns with different formulas for long-lasting results. Deaconess Cosmetic Dermatology offers a wide range of filler products to help correct signs of facial aging, like lost volume and unwanted lines and wrinkles.
Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body’s natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A customized treatment plan can treat mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips, temples, hands and cheeks.
Deaconess Cosmetic Dermatology offers a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Treats facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Kysse: Adds natural, flexible, kissable volume to the lips
- Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate smile and laugh lines
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR restylane?
Restylane treatments are great for any patient over the age of 21 who wants to improve their appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment plan will be customized to fit your concerns and goals.
HOW are restylane injections PERFORMED?
Restylane injections take place at the Deaconess Cosmetic Dermatology offices. A numbing cream is applied for increased patient comfort. The product is injected into your skin through a fine needle or cannula and massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way but on different areas of the face to address your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
RECOVERY FROM RESTYLANE
You can return to your normal daily activities after Restylane injections. Your recovery will depend on what is being treated, so talk to our physicians about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this usually goes away in a few days. Bruising can be a factor, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid firmly rubbing your face and sleep upright for the first night.
Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injections often last up to a year, depending on the exact product used.
