Restylane®

Restylane® at SilkeySkinMD

There is little that can be done to eliminate the pesky wrinkles that start to appear with age.  As the skin’s natural stores of fat and collagen are depleted, tissue will loose its elasticity, slowly pulling down on the face.  When coupled with weight fluctuations, stress, and genetic disposition, the lines can add uneccesary years on to the appearance.  While there is no way to turn back the clock, Restylane at SilkeySkinMD can certainly outsmart it.

Restylane®

Restylane is a dermal filler, is used to improve the look of static wrinkles (those caused by lax tissues), as well as fill in areas of lost volume.  With one treatment, tissues are plumped and wrinkles erased for up to nine months.  Restylane is comprised of Hyaluronic Acid, a vital building block of healthy skin.  HA will trigger the body’s natural collagen production, which will in turn, continue to improve the benefits of treatment for months to come.

The dermal filler is also excellent at plumping the lips.  Restylane can redefine the lips to a healthy fullness.  It is the only product approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for lip enhancement.

Restylane will:

  • Even out deep facial creases
  • Improve fine lines
  • Smooth acne scarring
  • Plump the lips
  • Provide facial volume and symmetry
  • Smooth tissues around the eyes

The Ideal Candidate for Restylane

Anyone unhappy with their appearance, and looking to add volume to their features, may find great results with Restylane.  It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities.  The ideal candidate will be in good health, understand the Restylane process, and have realistic expectations for their results.  During the SilkeySkinMD consultation, we will help each patient decide if the injectable is right for their situation.

The Restylane Consultation

Prior to scheduling any aesthetic procedure, SilkeySkinMD recommends a consultation appointment with one of our experienced and licensed medical professionals.  During this time, a brief skin evaluation can be done, medical history reviewed, and any current medications discussed.  The Restylane procedure will be explained, and patients can see before and after photos of patients.  Once Restylane has been determined to be the correct product to meet the desired results, an individualized treatment plan will be established.

Restylane Injections

At SilkeySkinMD, a session with Restylane will take less than 30 minutes to complete.  Once the targeted areas of the face have been determined, Restylane will be administered with a very thin needle.  Restylane contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, so injections are not painful.  If needed, however, a topical or local anesthetic can be used prior to treatment.

Patients are free to return to work, school, and all of their usual activities immediately after a Restylane treatment.  It is important that patients do not manipulated or rub the treated area for the first 78 hours, as the injectable may be dispersed to surrounding tissues.

The Restylane Results

Minor redness and swelling are common after Restylane injections, although these will resolve over the first couple of days.  Immediately after treatment, the benefits of Restylane will be apparent.  Over the following weeks, as the swelling subsides and the body’s Collagen production is sparked, the results will continue to improve.  The benefits from Restylane will last between six and nine months before beginning to fade.  A repeat Restylane session can be used to maintain the beautiful benefits from treatment.

Potential Complications from Restylane

While Restylane is an extremely safe and effective dermal filler, there is always the chance for mild side effects.  These may include redness, bruising, and mild swelling.  When using an experienced provider, such as SilkeySkinMD, more serious complications from Restylane are rare.  However, issues such as scarring, facial asymmetry, and nerve damage can occur.  SilkeySkinMD is one of the country’s most experienced Restylane providers, and guarantees patients the safest procedure available today.
