Restylane injections provide instant and long-lasting wrinkle correction. It is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler which restores volume and fullness to skin. This multi-use product line corrects fine to moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds of all types, from the fine lines around the lips to deep nasolabial folds.
A highly versatile filler, Restylane is also used to increase fullness and enhance the lips, define the lip line, fill scars, and plump up facial areas that have lost their youthful appearance. One very common instance of “facial deflation” is the area under the eyes that becomes hollow, creating a worn-out, tired look.
The effectiveness of Restylane®
Lasting up to twice as long as collagen, and in many cases even longer, treatments are typically scheduled only twice a year. Injected into the dermis in tiny amounts with a very fine needle, the result is instantaneous, producing a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to the skin. Smoothing out folds and wrinkles by adding volume can make an enormous difference in appearance and sometimes make the face look several years younger. With Restylane, you can enjoy facial rejuvenation without the use of foreign elements. Because Restylane is made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid and is fully and safely biocompatible, allergy testing is not required.
What will I look like after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness and swelling in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears within a few days
How long will a treatment session take?
Treatment with Restylane may take 15-30 minutes. At JDHR we insure your complete satisfaction by careful placement of the filler. As no pre-test is needed, the treatment can be carried out immediately. Depending on the correction you wish to have performed, the length of time may differ.
Does the procedure hurt?
Most people find the injections relatively painless since it contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic. To minimize any pain, the physicians at JDHR utilize a topical anesthetic to numb the skin. When enhancing the lips, a local anesthetic injection is often given, as this area is the most sensitive. In several cases, we can also provide direct anesthesia with nerve blocks.
Are there precautions after my treatment with Restylane?
Yes. During the first 48 hours after your treatment, do not massage or rub the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days after the treatment. Until the initial swelling and redness have resolved, do not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. in a sauna or by sunbathing) or extreme cold.
