Restylane adds volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Restylane can also add fullness and definition to lips in patients over 21 years of age, providing natural-looking and lasting results with just one treatment.
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that can be very beneficial as a non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatment. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound in the body, so the injectable treatment does not typically require an allergy test. Patients of Zest of Beauty Clinic often use this filler to reduce the appearance of wrinkles between the nose and mouth and around the eyes, as well as to add volume and new contours to facial features for a more youthful, refreshed look. The results of the treatment generally last 6-9 months and can be maintained with follow-up treatment. A topical numbing cream can be used to block the nerves prior to performing the injection, ensuring better comfort during the procedure. Any minor swelling or bruising that may occur should quickly resolve and patients are typically able to return to their normal activities the day after treatment or before.
If you are on aspirin, non-steroidal pain medications (NSAIDs), blood thinning medications (Coumadin, Lovenox, Plavix, etc.), or herbal medications (garlic, Vitamin E, etc) you may have a slightly higher risk of bruising after your Restylane® treatment.
What to Expect
Restylane® is well tolerated by most patients and the treatment typically causes only mild discomfort. We use a multi-modality regimen with several pain reducing techniques to help ensure your experience is as comfortable as possible.
After your Restylane® injection, most patients can resume normal daily activities. We recommend avoiding strenuous activities the evening after injection. While some patients may experience mild bruising or swelling, these reactions typically resolve quickly.
Restylane® can play an important role in any facial rejuvenation regimen and ultimately provide smoother, younger, more refreshed-looking skin. To find out if Restylane® is the right choice for you, please our clinic to schedule free consultation.Learn More!
