Dermal Fillers/Restylane

What is Restylane and how does it work?

Some may show it more than others, but we all age! Sagging cheeks, hollow eyes, and thinning, turned down lips are disturbing signs that our skin, with age, is getting thinner and less elastic. Fortunately, today we have a way to reverse this aging process. With the development of Dermal Fillers, like Restylane, that contain the naturally occurring substance Hyaluronic Acid, we can replace the volume and “ingredient” needed by our body to make the collagen that maintains firm, smooth, youthful skin. When injected under the skin surface, the Restylane "family" of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, provide volume and support that lifts and removes unwanted facial folds and wrinkles, replaces fullness and restores youthful facial contours.

Where, on the face, are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers used to restore or enhance facial contours?

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, like Restylane, are used to both lift sagging facial contours and add volume where more fullness is desired. These safe and effective Dermal Fillers are all FDA approved for facial enhancement but differ in their molecular density and "best use" site of injection. Restylane Lyft, is a denser Hyaluronic Acid gel and is best used deeper in the skin where it can give firmer volume support and “lift” to areas such as the cheeks, jawline and nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Restylane and Restylane Silk are softer, finer gels, making them better suited for adding fullness around the eyes and mouth and are FDA approved for lip volume enhancement in patients 21 and older.

What is a treatment with Restylane like?

A Restylane treatment is fast and easy, with a typical session lasting under an hour. A topical anesthetic is applied 30 minutes before injection and with the additional Lidocaine in the injected gel itself, treatments, even in the lips, have minimal discomfort. With Hyaluronic Acid fillers, results are seen instantly, as the product is injected into the chosen sites, allowing correction to be developed, with no chance of “over filling”. The desired correction can be achieved in one session and will last from 6 months to more than a year, depending on the treatment site. Hyaluronic Acid Fillers, being a natural product, are extremely safe, and treatments have no downtime. Occasional bruising or swelling can occur, depending on the injection sites, but will resolve naturally in a few days. Lip volume enhancement will frequently result in significant but temporary swelling, starting several hours after treatment and lasting 24 to 48 hours, with the final result being the fullness achieved at the time of injection.
