Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, which occurs naturally in the body. These injections restore facial volume, smoothing wrinkles, lines and folds. A biodegradable gel, Restylane has been used by more than three million patients worldwide. It is a safe, powerful and reliable volume enhancer.
Why Undergo Restylane Treatment?
- Perfect for the smoothing of facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. Increased facial volume smoothes the skin and minimizes these aging signs.
- Naturally derived, Restylane contains no animal products. This means that no skin test is necessary, and minimizes the potential for allergic reactions.
- Restylane injections provide maximum volume with minimal downtime or recovery. This allows you to determine if the effect is right for you before committing to a permanent solution.
Your Restylane Treatment with Dr. Bharti
Dr. Bharti will explain the details of Restylane treatment, and you can share your goals for treatment. A numbing cream can be applied for extra comfort. The treatment area will be cleaned and the injection sites determined. Injections are made just under the skin. Multiple sites may be used for each treatment area. This procedure generally lasts 15 to 30 minutes. Once Restylane has been injected, the area may be massaged. This distributes the injected material throughout the treatment area.
Bandages are not necessary following Restylane injections. The small injection sites do not typically result in any visible scarring. There may be some slight tenderness, redness or swelling immediately after treatment. This should diminish in a few days. Lip injections may remain swollen for slightly longer. Results should be immediately visible following the injections. They will continue to become more apparent as the swelling goes down.
The results of Restylane may last from four to 12 months. These results can be adjusted and prolonged with additional injections. Subsequent injections generally produce longer-lasting results.
We have a wide range of injectable products, such as Juvederm®, Sculptra®, Perlane® and Botox®. Discuss your options with Dr. Bharti to determine the best injectable for your situation.
Smoothing of more severe facial wrinkles may require a face lift or a brow lift. These procedures tighten deep tissues to reduce the signs of aging.
Resurfacing your skin with rejuvenation procedures may improve superficial wrinkles. These options include laser resurfacing and mechanical exfoliation.
