Dermal fillers are a popular choice for both young and old patients that come to Dr. V Medical Aesthetics. Younger patients opt for dermal fillers to fix their facial symmetry, improve their facial contour, fill-in their acne scars or make their naturally thin lips look fuller. Older patients, on the other hand, can use dermal fillers to fill in their wrinkles, facial lines, and areas that have lost fat with time and aging.
Dr. V Medical Aesthetics offers various dermal filler injection brands and can recommend the right brand for you. Restylane is one of these options, but how can you tell if it’s the right one for you. After an initial consultation with one of our exceptional doctors, we can recommend whether Restylane is the best hyaluronic acid dermal filler for you. Here’s what you should know about getting Restylane.
Approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2003, Restylane is a popular choice of dermal filler for both young and older patients. It is a dermal filler brand used by medical professionals to fill in areas of a patient’s face. The facial filler used for a specific skin problem can come in various substances, and Restylane (and other products under the Restylane family like Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, etc.) is one of many hyaluronic acid fillers (HA fillers) available in the market.
Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid to keep your skin hydrated by retaining water. As an injectable filler, HA fillers are soft and gel-like and usually contain lidocaine to help minimize discomfort around the facial tissue. Restylane can be used for facial wrinkles, areas with diminished fat, or for lip enhancement procedures.
A dose of Restylane dermal filler works by attracting and binding water molecules to add volume. A qualified medical professional will administer the right amount of HA filler into the injection site, which can increase the volume underneath the skin and reshape the area.
Once injected, the hyaluronic acid clings to your skin and attracts more water around the injection site, helping preserve the shape and volume. However, this is only temporary and HA fillers usually last for up to one year. To maintain your results and prevent facial wrinkles from reappearing, you will need to have follow-up injections.
Dermal filler injections are minimally invasive and take less than half an hour per treatment area. Dermal fillers do not require anesthesia, so downtime isn’t required after dermal fillers, though you may experience normal side effects like swelling that can go away after a few days. How long the effects of your Restylane injection lasts will depend on factors like how quick your body can absorb the hyaluronic acid, as well as lifestyle practices that can negate the effects of dermal fillers.
In the hands of our experienced medical professionals, Restylane injections can give you a volume increase that looks natural, reduces the signs of aging, and improves your appearance. Our staff have perfected their injection technique to ensure every patient gets the best results from our facility.
Restylane is an option for those looking for dermal fillers for places like their lips, cheeks, jaws, and more. It’s a popular choice for patients getting dermal fillers for the first time, since HA fillers are relatively the most affordable and have the shortest length of effectiveness, allowing patients to feel and experience dermal fillers before committing to longer-lasting options.
Restylane is the right choice of dermal filler for patients who want to receive benefits such as:
Unsure of which dermal filler treatment is right for you? Let our experienced in-house doctors recommend the right one for you. If fillers are the right path towards your goals, we’ll see if you’re a qualified candidate for Restylane treatment (or use any other Restylane product). We may also recommend other non-surgical treatments like neurotoxin injections that you can safely receive on top of your dermal fillers to maximize the changes we can do to help you reach your goals.
Restylane can only be administered by qualified healthcare professionals. When considering which Restylane provider to pick, you should choose those with experience and a history of successful and satisfied customers. An experienced provider understands how to work with Restylane and how much to inject to produce natural-looking results that enhance your appearance.
Getting Restylane from your provider is a quick and relatively painless procedure. After applying a topical anesthetic, they will inject enough Restylane into the treatment area. Following this, they may massage the treated area to ensure the site is filled and distributed correctly.
