Reverse The Signs of Aging With Restylane

As we age, our faces lose fat, muscle and even bone, leaving our faces hollow and tired looking. A simple solution may be only thirty minutes away. For those looking to improve fine lines or enhance lips, Restylane® treatments may be the answer. Restylane® offers a nonsurgical solution to add volume in your face. This can help to give you a more youthful appearance and help reduce certain signs of aging. Restylane is a dermal filler designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our skin to help provide fullness and elasticity. However, as we age, the amount of hyaluronic acid in our skin diminishes, resulting in loss of volume and increased chances for wrinkles and folds to appear.

What to Expect With Restylane

The most common areas for treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the under-eye area (also known as the “tear trough”) to help improve the appearance of dark circles and hollows. It is also great for lip enhancement, and is FDA-approved for that purpose. Patients should expect 2-3 days of swelling and bruising may last 2 weeks. Overall results may last 6 months to up to 1 year. Generally, we recommend periodic touch-ups to help prolong the effects.

  1. STOP using aspirin, Motrin, ibuprofen, Aleve, vitamin E, gingko biloba, fish oil, green tea, St John’s wort, or other anti-inflammatory medications, if okay with primary physician. These medications should be discontinued 2 weeks prior to the procedure as they increase the risk of bruising. For mild discomfort or headaches, Tylenol is preferred.
