What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is the signature product in the Restylane® family of fillers, which includes Restylane® Silk and Restylane® Lyft. Designed to target nasolabial folds such as those that form around the mouth and nose, this product contains hyaluronic acid, which binds with water to plump the skin from within.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® gently erases deep facial folds and wrinkles without creating an artificial appearance. You’ll look like a younger version of yourself rather than seeming overly done, a problem that many of our patients in the Palm Coast area of Florida would rather not encounter. Since Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid, it is safe for people of all ages, even those over 65 who might otherwise face greater risks when having cosmetic surgery.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane®?
Restylane® does contain the numbing agent lidocaine, so anyone who is allergic to this medication should not have an injection. Doctors have not yet determined how safe this product is for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers, so women who are lactating or expecting should forgo Restylane®.
What do I Need to do Before Restylane®?
Restylane® should not be performed in conjunction with any other dermal filler or injection. Please let us know if you are considering another filler so that we can space your appointments at the right intervals.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Restylane® Injection?
Dr. Zamora will examine your facial folds and wrinkles to determine how severe they are. This will let him know how deep to inject Restylane®, as well as the amount of product to use. Approximately half the syringe will be placed in each side of your face to provide even, consistent results. You might also require more than one injection on each side, for example, one in your upper cheek and another between your mouth and nose.
How Long Does it Take to Perform Restylane®?
We schedule Restylane® appointments in 30-minute increments, which allows enough time for prepping and examining your face.
What to Expect After Restylane®
Some redness and/or bruising may be visible near your injection sites, but this is normal and should go away within a day or two. You’ll start noticing results within a very short timeframe, often within just a few days.
Will I Have Scars After Restylane®?
Restylane® and other dermal fillers and injectables will not leave a scar, which is part of what makes the treatment so popular.
How Long Will the Results of Restylane® Last?
Your results should last between six and nine months, after which time you may undergo another treatment.
