Who is a candidate for Restylane?
A good candidate for Restylane is one who is considering a non-surgical wrinkle correction treatment for areas of the face. Usually, the most common areas of concern are the nasolabial folds and the lips. Restylane is particularly good in many areas.
Intended Results for Restylane
Restylane has been used in more than one million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of wrinkles and to enhance the appearance and fullness of lips.In the U.S., it is currently indicated for mid to deep dermal implantation for the correction of moderate to sever wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Results are immediate and dramatic.
Restylane Injection Procedure Description
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultra fine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may anesthetize the treatment area.
Restylane requires no pretesting, but patients are encouraged to take a few precautions before being treated. Patients should avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, and high doses of Vitamin E, prior to treatment. These substances might increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
Recuperation and Healing from Restylane
Temporary redness and swelling at the injection site may occur which can be treated with ice packs. These effects typically resolve within 2 to 3 days.
Restylane is a natural, cosmetic filler. In contrast Botox is a drug that relaxes the underlying muscles. Many patients have been very pleased after receiving both products. Restylane is proven to deliver a longer lasting effect than traditional collagen. In addition, bovine collagen is derived from animals and requires an allergy test. Because Restylane is non-animal- based, it can be administered without pretesting, so no waiting is required. These alternative procedures are available to you as well.
