Restylane

  • What is it?
    • Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler. Restylane is a natural substance found in the body. It can be found in joints, eyes and is also responsible for giving the skin it’s plump, hydrated look. It can be injected into wrinkles to reduce their appearance is. In the appropriate candidate it can be used to minimize folds of the skin.
  • Am I a candidate?
    • Restylane is for people who wish to reduce or eliminate lines in the corner of the mouth, in the area between your nose and lips or to fill out hollow or sunken areas around the eyes and cheeks. It can be used to eliminate that marionette or that puppet-like appearance that signals rapid aging around the mouth area.
  • What to expect
    • Restylane results can be immediate and can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months. There are some studies that show that it can stimulate collagen production thereby rapidly reducing the rate of facial aging. Since Restylane plumps up the skin, it can prevent future wrinkling.
  • Any downsides?
    • With all fillers, 10 to 20% of patients, experience significant bruising depending on the areas. Because injections can be painful lidocaine must be either injected prior to treatment or mixed in with the actual derma filler. Therefore we recommend that all are patients purchase our aArnica gel and tablet kit to reduce swelling and bruising. With proper numbing, the procedure is virtually pain-free.
  • Costs
    • $300 to $950 per syringe depending on size and number of areas to be treated.
