What is Restylane?

Restylane is a dermal Filler designed to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, rejuvenate the skin and enhance facial volume. Restylane is one of the most popular dermal filler’s because it provides a natural look that lasts. Restylane is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a sugar molecule produced naturally by our bodies. How hyaluronic acid works is by binding to water, HA acts as a lubricant and gives your skin fullness and hydration. Individual results may vary.

Restylane improves the signs of aging by restoring volume and smoothing facial lines and wrinkles. Restylane is slightly different from other dermal fillers due to its higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. The injector room in Lakewood believes this makes Restylane one of the best dermal fillers for correcting moderate to severe wrinkles and enhancing the lips. Individual results may vary

What preparation is needed for Restylane?

To lessen the possibility of bruising and bleeding, 10 to 12 days before receiving injectable treatments we recommend avoiding aspirin, omega-3, high doses of vitamin C, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory‘s, for example, Aleve, Motrin, Advil, and ibuprofen, etc. If you take aspirin for medical purposes, please continue use. If you have recently suffered from facial cold sores please notify your aesthetic injector before receiving injections, and follow a recommended treatment plan.

How is Restylane administered?

The treatment begins with collectively mapping out our clients treatment plan, reviewing post-care and answering all of your questions and concerns. 10 minutes before your treatment, we start with the application of a topical numbing cream which helps alleviate discomfort during the procedure. Injection process takes approximately 30 to 60 minutes and involves a series of small injections into the deep dermis of the preferred treatment area.

What can I anticipate after treatment?

There is very little if any, downtime or recovery needed. You can resume in most activities right away. It is important to not rub or massage the treated areas so that the filler can remain undisturbed. Restylane directions, just like any other injection, can cause some bruising and swelling. We have some special techniques that we will use to reduce the swelling and bruising associated with Restylane injections. However, if bruising and swelling occur it will subside and fade in a few days. Some mild redness is normal after the procedure and should diminish in 60 minutes. Makeup can be applied 15 minutes after treatment. If you experience any mild aching at the site of the injection after the procedure this can easily be controlled with Tylenol.

When can I expect to see results?

Immediately after the treatment, you will see an increase in volume and a smoother appearance. Results will continue to improve over the next 48 hours. Your body will naturally acclimate to the hyaluronic acid and the product will bind to water, producing a fuller appearance.-Individual results may vary.

Proactive maintenance

Restylane needs to be repeated and maintained. Factual length of results can vary from person to person due to differences in facial anatomy, gender, and lifestyle. Proactive maintenance is key to providing continued results.-Individual results may vary.
