What is Restylane?

Restylane is a dermal filler made with naturally derived hyaluronic acid (HA). This unique compound is found naturally in youthful complexions and gives the skin its radiant glow and supple elasticity. With age, the body is slowly depleted of HA, resulting in lines, wrinkles, and a loss of volume in the temples, cheeks, jawline, and lips. Restylane injections can help offset this imbalance, restoring an inviting countenance and renewed self-confidence.

What Are the Benefits?

  • Creates fuller, more alluring lips
  • Combats nasolabial folds
  • Plumps the cheeks and midface
  • Restores volume in the temples 
  • Corrects hollows beneath the eyes
  • Non-surgical and non-invasive
  • Results last 6-18 months
  • Revives a positive self-image

What is the Treatment Process Like?

Patients can expect a short treatment session of around 30 minutes, making it possible to undergo Restylane injections over one’s lunch break. A topical numbing agent can be used to ensure the patient feels no discomfort during the injection process. Restylane is injected strategically to preserve facial spontaneity while correcting cosmetic imperfections.

Is There Any Downtime After Restylane?

One of the reasons why Restylane injections are so popular is because they come with no recovery requirement. Patients can expect to resume their normal activities right away after their sessions. The process is non-surgical, and no anesthesia is needed.

After Restylane, patients should avoid strenuous exercise and excessive heat for 24-48 hours. They should not drink alcohol before or after their injections. Minor redness, tenderness, or swelling at the injection sites may occur but these fade away within a day or so and are no cause for alarm.

Am I a Candidate for Restylane?

Healthy patients over age 21 who are seeking a shorter-term solution for age-related lines, wrinkles, and volume loss will find Restylane to be an excellent option for restoring appearance.

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should hold off on Restylane injections, as should those who are immunocompromised or allergic to any ingredients in Restylane.
