Restylane / Restylane Silk
Restylane is a group of injectable fillers comprised of hyaluronic acid. The treatment aims to correct fine lines and wrinkles by mimicking your body’s own hyaluronic acid. This can fill in the small lines around your nose and mouth, and can be used as a lip filler in patients over the age of twenty-one. Restylane is a clear gel, avoiding the granular consistency of some other fillers.
Before the procedure, one of our experienced board-certified plastic surgeons will numb the injection sites with a topical anesthetic. They will map out exactly where the injections will be placed to give you the best aesthetic result, while being sure to use a safe amount of filler.
The treatment typically takes less than an hour, making it a convenient treatment to fight the signs of aging for those who are busy. Restylane injections are safe and effective, and most patients see immediate results that last for six to nine months following the procedure.
Benefits of Restylane
The procedure can:
- Reduce the look of lines and wrinkles
- Rejuvenate the face
- Add volume to areas of the face where volume has been lost
Before & After
Types of Restylane
Within the first day after the injections, some patients experience temporary redness, swelling or itching at the treatment site. We recommend patients avoid strenuous exercise, excessive sun or heat exposure, as well as alcoholic beverages.
Over time, the body metabolizes the fillers, so multiple treatments are necessary to maintain results – typically nine months to one year after your initial procedure.
Quality Patient Care
Our surgeons along with the supporting staff at the practice provides full support and care for patients right from their initial consultation stage through recovery.
