The history of cosmetics is a long one. Starting with the Ancient Egyptians, people have used cosmetics to enhance their looks for centuries. But today’s modern world moves faster than ever before, and cosmetics may not be enough to keep back the hands of time. As we age, our skin naturally loses what keeps it smooth and youthful. Restoring skin cells is at the heart of Restylane®, a series of injectable filler treatments that boost and rejuvenate from within.
What is Restylane Used for?
Restylane injections can be used to treat a wide range of cosmetic concerns. You may be a candidate for treatments if you struggle with:
- Hollow areas or loss of volume along the mid-face
- Moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds
- Thinning or wrinkling lips
- Lines and wrinkles around the mouth (marionette lines)
- Loss of volume and wrinkling on hands
How Do Restylane Injections Work?
As an injectable treatment, Restylane® is easy to administer. Most patients can complete treatment sessions within an hour with little to no side effects afterward.
Step 1: Cleanse Injection Site
The target area is cleansed and swiped with an antibacterial solution to prep it for its injection. A topical numbing solution may be used to minimize discomfort.
Step 2: Administer Injection
The Restylane® treatment is administered to the target area via injection. Restylane® Silk treatments use a smaller, finer type of gel and an ultra-fine needle for higher accuracy when administering treatments.
Step 3: Cleanse Again and Recover
The treated area is cleansed again before the patient is released to allow for recovery.
How Long is Recovery for Restylane?
After 24 hours: There may be mild side effects like swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, or itching at the injection site.
After 2-3 days: Symptoms should start to subside. Patients should take care to avoid too much sun exposure as they heal.
After 1 week: Discomfort has typically faded away for most areas (lips may experience symptoms for over two weeks after treatment).
How Long Does it Take to See Results from Restylane®?
The effects of Restylane® treatments are almost immediately noticeable after swelling has gone down. Restylane® offers enhancement that looks natural, avoiding an overdone look.
Most Restylane® treatments can last up to a year or longer.
