Restylane® has quickly become one of the most popular and longest-lasting fillers and volumizers on the market today. At Advanced Laser and Cosmetic Center, located in both Sharonville, Cincinnati, Ohio and Centerville, Dayton, Ohio, we take years off patients’ faces with Restylane.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based filler. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the skin to help keep it plump. However, like collagen, as we age the production of hyaluronic acid decreases. Restylane is a synthetic version of this same substance, and when injected into wrinkles, folds and lines it restores plumpness and volume. Results are so transformative that this procedure is sometimes referred to as “a liquid facelift.”
What facial flaws is Restylane best are correcting?
Restylane is an excellent solution for:
- Marionette lines, those pesky lines that go down the sides of the mouth
- Laugh lines, a loss of volume between the mouth and cheeks
- Furrows, those deep narrow grooves or deep wrinkles in the skin, most often caused by repeated frowning, squinting and other facial expressions
- Frown lines, creases in the forehead between the brows.
- Eye hollows
- Thin lips
What does the procedure entail?
This simple office procedure usually takes no longer than 30 minutes, depending on how many areas are being treated. Most patients opt for a topical anesthetic applied ahead of time for optimum comfort. Some patients describe the sensation as mildly uncomfortable, while the majority say they feel no pain at all. Some people may experience swelling or tenderness at the injection site(s), but this is typically brief and resolved by applying ice. Patients generally resume their regular daily activities immediately following the procedure, but should avoid excessive heat and sunlight.
How long will the results of Restylane last?
Changes are immediately noticeable, with full results apparent in about a week following treatment. They’re dramatic too; Restylane reduces lines and wrinkles by as much as 80%. Best of all, your transformation can last up to one year, at which point most individuals return for a refresher treatment. Our specialists can help you determine what is the best time for a follow-up treatment.
