Many of us start to see the first small volume loss, wrinkles, fine lines and creases in our late twenties and early thirties. As they grow and become more noticeable, we often turn first to over-the-counter skin products or makeup. Unfortunately, those only help some of those problems, and for a limited time, because they don't actually stop the volume loss, wrinkles, lines and creases from forming.
FAMILY OF RESTYLANE FILLERS
What can I expect during a Restylane treatment?
Receiving a Restylane injection begins with a consultation. At your consultation you'll be able to discuss your goals and decide with Practitioner Edwards on the best Restylane option that works for you. The practitioner may then cleanse your face before guiding you through the actual injections where a small needle is used to place the Restylane just under the skin. Most patients describe feeling only a slight pinch, though a topical anesthetic can also be used to reduce discomfort.
What about after?
There is no downtime for the procedure, though if you are planning to return to work there may be some amount of mild swelling in the first day, you'll receive aftercare instructions to help prevent and/or reduce any mild swelling or bruising. Though results may seem immediate, the area after treatment is often at least slightly swollen so we recommend waiting a week to confirm the final results.
Restylane is a formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically created to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. It helps to visibly correct facial wrinkles, folds, and volume loss by adding volume beneath the skin where it was lost. Restylane not only reduces the visibility of wrinkles, folds, creases and lines, it also helps to prevent them from deepening.
In a clinical study of subjects treated with Restylane, evaluators reported still seeing improvement in 95% of subjects 18 months after initial injection.
