How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is a solution composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring compound produced by the skin. This natural skin sugar bonds with water molecules in the skin tissues to improve volume.
During a Restylane treatment, the solution is injected into target areas to rejuvenate them. It improves hydration and restores fullness and elasticity. Restylane can fill in wrinkles like the nasolabial folds, parentheses lines, perioral lip lines (also called smoker’s lines), and marionette lines.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane?
A Restylane treatment is perfect for patients who want instant lip enhancement without getting lip implants. It’s also ideal for those who have deep lines around the mouth, sunken cheeks, or dark circles under their eyes.
This dermal filler treatment is not suitable for patients who are allergic to bacterial protein. It should also be avoided by those with compromised immune systems and those who are taking blood thinners. The same goes for pregnant patients and patients under 21 years of age.
Your Restylane Consultation
When patients come in for a Restylane consultation, they will be asked about their goals for the treatment. They will also be asked questions regarding their health and any possible causes for complications such as allergic reactions.
Once the patient has been cleared for the treatment, they are then taken through the steps involved. Discussions regarding the cost for the treatment can also occur.
Your Restylane Session
A Restylane treatment involves the application of local anesthesia to prepare for the injections. The solution will then be injected into the targeted wrinkles and hollow areas (or the lips in the case of lip augmentation). The entire treatment can take up to 30 minutes, depending on how extensive the skin issue is.
Since a Restylane procedure is only minimally invasive, patients can immediately leave after it is done. It won’t get in the way of returning to regular activities.
There is no recovery period or downtime following Restylane injections. Patients can expect minor swelling around the affected areas, as well as minor redness or bruising, but these should fade within a week. Results can be seen immediately.
Patients will be asked to limit their exposure to sunlight as much as possible. Other than that, resuming work shouldn’t be a problem.
How Much Does Restylane Cost?
The price of Restylane injections depends on the number of injections required to achieve each patient’s aesthetic goals. Patients who want to know how much their Restylane treatment will cost can get in touch with IconMD Medical Spa & Laser Center.
