Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler that restores lost volume to facial wrinkles and folds for a more youthful appearance. It consists of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is already in the human body. FDA-approved and used for many years, Restylane® is safe and non-allergenic.
Restylane® is a clear, smooth gel that looks very natural when injected by a professional with skill and experience like Dr. Dutton. There is no need to look “done” after your treatment.
Benefits of Restylane®
- Smooth fine lines such as smile lines
- Smooth moderate to severe lines and wrinkles
- Enhance thin lips
Sometimes, more than one dermal filler is recommended to achieve your desired result. Other fillers include Juvéderm®, Radiesse®, Sculptra®, Belotero, and Collagen. Some types of wrinkles are better alleviated with BOTOX® injections.
The Restylane® Procedure
Restylane® injections contain Lidocaine, which has a numbing effect to prevent discomfort, and the needle used is ultra-fine. Dr. Dutton is skilled in knowing how to “sculpt” the face with dermal fillers such as Restylane®, placing the injections in the proper places and best dosages to give you a younger look without others knowing you have had a cosmetic procedure.
No two patients are the same, but Restylane® injections usually last for 4-6 months. The second treatment often lasts longer than a year, however.
Restylane® Injection Recovery
You will need no downtime after Juvéderm® injections. You can go straight home or back to work after your procedure.
Most patients experience some inflammation, bruising, and soreness, however, for a few days, but the symptoms are generally mild and short-lived. You may apply makeup immediately to cover any bruises, which are usually faint.
Most people find that the slight after-effects during the healing process are mild and well worth the results of a facial filler.
