Getting older has many advantages, but not when it comes to the wrinkles and creases around your nose and mouth. Restylane® is specially formulated to soften these signs of aging, so you look as good as you feel. Led by board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. David B. Brothers, Plastic Surgery Centre of Atlanta offers Restylane® for men and women in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, and surrounding communities in Georgia.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, and is gentle and safe to your skin.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® is clinically proven to provide longer-lasting, more consistent results compared to collagen and fat injections. The injectable product works by enhancing your skin’s ability to bind with water and increase hydration. This approach is preferred by patients who want more natural anti-aging solutions without surgery.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane®?
Restylane® is very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds, and the frown lines.
Restylane® is also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. Experience shows that Restylane is effective for up to six months when injected in the lips. Restylane is a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of correcting your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion.
What Do I Need to Do Before Having Restylane®?
As with any filler, a consultation with your plastic surgeon is necessary to discuss the options and to determine which areas are best suited for Restylane® treatment.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Restylane®?
The injection procedure can be painful, so topical and local anesthetics may be used prior to injection of Restylane®. A very small needle is used for the injections, and you may feel a slight pressure as the gel enters the soft tissue. Dr. Brothers makes several injections along the wrinkle or crease to achieve a natural and smooth appearance.
How Long Does It Take to Administer Restylane®?
Restylane® treatments take less than one hour. Longer treatments times are associated with larger areas of the face that require anti-aging correction.
What to Expect After Restylane®
For the first day or two, you may have some swelling and the skin may be slightly red. You may also have pinpoint bleeding and tenderness around the injection sites.
Will I Have Scars After Getting Restylane®?
Restylane® injections do not cause scars when administered by an experienced clinician.
When Will I See Results?
The results of Restylane® injections are immediate. The lines and wrinkles are significantly reduced. As the hyaluronic acid in Restylane® binds with water, you will see slow, gradual improvements.
How Long Will the Results of Restylane® Last?
Restylane® will last from six to 12 months.
