What Is Restylane Used For?
Restylane is one of the most popular dermal filler brands in the cosmetic world, known for its versatility, longevity, and ability to deliver natural-looking results. It’s a hyaluronic-acid-based dermal filler that contains HA particles very similar to what the body produces naturally. It’s an effective filler for soft tissue, and based on which filler we inject, it can treat a number of different concerns. Like our other dermal fillers, this brand includes fillers that can:
- Restore volume to the backs of the hands
- Smooth smile lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds
- Contour the cheeks
- Augment the chin
- Sculpt the jawline
- Restore volume to the undereye area
- Augment the lips
- Correct aesthetic imperfections
Dermal Filler Treatment FAQs
How Does It Work?
With Restylane, we can inject natural-looking volume into the soft tissue of the face to combat and reverse the effects of volume loss and enhance different facial features. Each filler in this collection is made with a smooth, flexible gel formula, which allows them to naturally fill in hollow areas to smooth folds, lines, and wrinkles or add volume to the lips, chin, jawline, or cheeks so patients can achieve their aesthetic goals.
Once injected into the soft tissue, the filler integrates well with the skin because it contains synthetic hyaluronic acid particles that resemble what the body produces.
What Happens During a Treatment?
Before beginning your treatment at our Baltimore, MD area office, we will cleanse the treatment area and then use the right amount of Restylane product to treat your areas of concern. Injections are quick, and the treatment process is minimally invasive. The needle is very small and thin, allowing for a comfortable injection experience.
As soon as your treatment is over, you’ll see some immediate improvements in the appearance of your treatment areas and can resume most of your normal daily activities. Patients can schedule treatments during their lunch break at work if necessary and return to work without any significant interruption to their schedule.
When Will I See the Results?
After your injection, you can expect immediate results. However, it takes up to a week for the injected filler to integrate with the skin’s tissue, so your initial results won’t be your final results. You’ll see continuous improvements in the weeks following your treatment as the filler settles and fills the treatment areas.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Dermal fillers deliver long-lasting results. The Restylane fillers can help patients achieve their aesthetic ideals and reverse the aging process for a year or longer. Different factors will impact the length of your results, including the product we use, the treatment area, how quickly your body metabolizes the ingredients, and the mobility of that treatment area.
At your initial consultation, once we determine which product is right for you, we can give you more details about how long you can expect your results to last so you know when to schedule follow-up treatments.
Is There Downtime?
There’s no social downtime after a dermal filler appointment. You will have to be mindful of the injection sites and follow some post-care directives. These may include avoiding strenuous workouts for the first 24 hours and avoiding sun exposure and any activity or environment that increases your body temperature.
These may include but are not limited to hot yoga, cooking over a hot stove, spending time out in the sun, and using a hot tub, sauna, or steam room. You must also temporarily discontinue taking blood-thinning supplements or medications that thin the blood. It’s also important that you avoid touching the injection sites, scheduling facial massage appointments, and sleeping face down for the first several days.
Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?
We can combine these dermal fillers with other skin care treatments for optimal results. Depending on your aesthetic goals, you may be a good candidate for one of our other injectables or skin care treatments. We can combine treatments with neuromodulators, like BOTOX, Dysport, XEOMIN, or Jeuveau to address the lines and wrinkles that dermal fillers cannot, specifically expression lines on the upper half of the face.
We can also combine this brand of fillers with other skin care treatments, like microneedling, lasers, and more. We can give you more details about our treatments at your initial consultation at our Baltimore, MD, area office so we can design a treatment plan that’s right for you.
