No matter how well you take care of your face and skin, we all endure the effects of aging and normal wear and tear. As your skin begins to age, you can start to lose volume and fullness, or develop facial wrinkles.
Although there are many potential ways to address this problem, one of the most popular is the use of dermal fillers. If you’re looking to:
- Smooth away facial wrinkles, lines, and folds
- Get fuller, healthier-looking lips
- Add lift or volume to your cheeks
… then Restylane may be an excellent choice for you!
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal filler, which simply means it’s a gel-like substance that can be injected in small quantities into certain areas of the skin. Dermal fillers are used to enhance shape, volume, and fullness, as well as reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines and give you a more youthful appearance overall.
Specifically, Restylane is a filler made from hyaluronic acid, a type of sugar that’s naturally found in the skin and helps keep it moisturized and rich in nutrients. As a result, Restylane is highly compatible with your body, which means the risk of serious side effects or poor results is extremely low. Your body uses it the same way as natural hyaluronic acid and even breaks it down naturally over time.
What are the Different Restylane Fillers?
Our office offers our patients a full line of Restylane products to help them find comfort and confidence. We offer the following products:
- Contour – is used exclusively in the midface region (cheek area) of the face, to augment its shape and correct its volume.
- Defyne – is used to maintain natural expressions and movements of your face.
- Kysse – is used to improve the color, fullness, volume, and shape of your lips.
- Lyft – is used to maintain skin elasticity and keep your complexion looking young and healthy.
- Refyne – is used to target the more dynamic areas of your face, such as your nasolabial folds and the marionette lines while allowing you to maintain your natural beauty.
- Silk – is used for subtle lip augmentation.
A New Option for Facial Rejuvenation: Restylane Contour
For patients seeking a fresher appearance in the cheeks and midface, we’re proud to provide a new product: Restylane Contour.
This filler can be injected into the midfacial and lateral cheek areas to restore natural contour, as well as subtly elevate and support the cheek area. It is an ideal treatment for many patients who have lost facial definition due to aging, as well as those seeking the appearance of higher cheekbones.
Restylane Contour works well with the skin and soft tissues thanks to its dynamic formula and viscosity. It has a smooth, gel-like consistency that allows for soft and flexible facial enhancements that don’t fight against the natural motions of the face.
Just like other Restylane fillers, Contour is primarily made from hyaluronic acid. If you have loved your results from other Restylane products, you are very likely to love Contour as well.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect?
Because fillers add volume, you should see dramatic improvements in most areas extremely quickly—often immediately after your treatment session is complete. Some settling of the filler may occur after treatment, but this process should be complete within 1-2 weeks.
For most people, the results last from about 6 to 18 months, depending on the area treated, your age and health status, and other factors. We can help you determine what kind of maintenance schedule would be best based on your individual needs and body chemistry.
What Is the Treatment Like?
The session usually takes less than an hour, and sometimes as little as 15 minutes depending on how many areas will require treatment. We’ll decide which areas of your face could benefit, mark them, and then use fine needles to apply the injection.
There is no downtime associated with the procedure. Minor side effects including swelling, redness, headache, or light bruising are possible and can last up to 1 week in nasolabial folds, or 2 weeks in the lips.
Restore a Youthful Look to Your Lips and Face!
If you want fuller lips, smoother skin, and a more energetic and youthful experience—and you want it non-surgically, with results you can see immediately and effects that can last 6 months or more—then Restylane dermal fillers may be a fantastic choice!
Whether you wish to turn back the clock, correct a problem, or just make a positive change in your outward appearance, we’d love to talk with you about your aesthetic goals and determine if Restylane is right for you.
