What you should know about Restylane

WHAT DOES IT TREAT?

Some other common reasons our Maryland aesthetic patients opt for these dermal filler injections are for the correction of other aesthetic complaints such as:

  • Sagging jowls
  • Recessive chins
  • Disappearing cheekbones
  • Under-eye bags

If your lips are narrow, or if they’ve lost volume with age, a newer dermal filler from the Restylane USA family of products, Restylane Silk, can increase the fullness of your lips and plump out any wrinkles or fine lines around the edges of your mouth. It’s a quick and easy solution, and the results are almost immediate, providing natural-looking lip enhancement for a more shapely mouth.

WHAT IT IS:

Our Maryland Restylane injectable dermal filler is a safe and effective way to diminish fine lines around the mouth and nose when administered by a certified injection provider. This popular injectable filler smooths the nasolabial folds or the lines that span from the base of the nose down to the corners of the mouth. This dermal filler also diminishes the appearance of marionette lines that run from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline.

WHAT IS RESTYLANE MADE OF?

Restylane is comprised of two major ingredients. The first is a natural sugar compound called hyaluronic acid, that acts by attaching to the skin’s surface and increasing water retention. This, in turn, plumps the surface of the skin, increasing volume and smoothing lines. Hyaluronic acid is naturally found in human and animal connective tissue where it functions to cushion cells from damage and deliver them nourishment, so it is perfectly safe.

The second component of this popular injectable filler is a patented formula called non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). This was designed to help the skin maintain firmness and to further enhance water retention. It makes up the base of the clear gel formula.

Since Restylane is made from all-natural ingredients, it is completely biodegradable and will be absorbed safely into the body over time. It also poses a very low risk of an allergic reaction due to its non-animal based composition.

THE RESTYLANE PROCEDURE

Restylane treatment is fairly straightforward. In most cases, the patient will receive local anesthesia. The Certified Injection Provider will then select one or several injection points for each area that’s being treated. Choosing the location and amount of each injection requires pin-point precision, and our specialists have the training and experience you expect and deserve.

The Restylane injection technique involves delivering minuscule amounts of the product using very fine needles. The good news is that small needles mean very little pain! Most treatment sessions take less than 30 minutes, usually with a follow-up session in 6-12 months.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Restylane adds volume to the skin by replenishing its supply of hyaluronic acid that causes the tissue beneath the skin to swell. This is how it smoothes out lines and wrinkles, giving the skin a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance.

HOW IS IT ADMINISTERED?

A Restylane filler is administered by a Certified Injection Provider in an office setting, using a local anesthetic and very small needles.  If any other injections are to be used with this treatment, such as other dermal fillers or a neurotoxin treatment to relax forehead wrinkles (such as Botox or Dysport), those will also be administered in a similar way and with the patient’s comfort in mind.

CAN ANESTHESIA BE USED?

Yes. Local anesthetics are used during Restylane procedures.  All Restylane products have the option of containing lidocaine to minimize discomfort during the treatment.  If you have a history of adverse reactions to lidocaine or any other anesthetic, be sure to inform your injection specialist.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCEDURE TAKE?

Since the procedure is simple and non-invasive, most patients are in and out within 30 minutes. The amount of time each treatment takes depends on the number of injections needed, so some people are finished quicker than others.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE?

As with any elective cosmetic procedure, it’s always prudent to wait until after the age of 18 to undergo any aesthetic treatment of this nature. This is not only for psychological reasons but also because facial structure continues to change during the last years of adolescence.

Restylane risks are negligible, and most people between 18-60 are considered suitable candidates for the procedure. It’s rare for someone seeking the treatment to be turned down for medical reasons, however, some considerations must be made to ensure patient safety, such as prior reactions to ingredients contained in the injectable, allergies to lidocaine or other anesthetics, or other conditions that could prevent the safe administration of this cosmetic treatment. Anyone who wants to reduce lines and wrinkles, or have fuller and more defined lips can most likely safely benefit from Restylane injections.

IS IT PAINFUL?

Generally speaking, most patients find a topical anesthetic provides sufficient relief from the pain associated with a Restylane filler for facial rejuvenation. At most, people describe the sensation as mild discomfort. The majority of patients feel no pain at all.

When undergoing a lip enhancement procedure, a stronger local anesthetic is often needed, as the lip area is extremely sensitive. Some Restylane products are now available with lidocaine included, saving time – and extra needle sticks.
