Restylane®

When we are young our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow.  As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself.  Our body’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser.  This leads to our skin wrinkling and appearing older than it should.

Approved by the FDA, Restylane® is designed to match your skin, smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips or shaping facial contours.  With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane® is able to perform for many months in your skin. The most common areas for a Restylane® treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth).  When used for lips or facial contouring, Restylane® will add shape and volume to the area.  Restylane® is able to create volume under your wrinkles, which are then lifted up and smoothed out. 

Since no pre-testing is required, a Restylane® treatment can be performed almost immediately.  It usually takes about 30 minutes depending on the type of correction you want.  Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to your treatment.  You will be able to see the results as soon as your treatment is completed.

Restylane, manufactured by a unique method in Sweden, is clear transparent gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that is found throughout your body.  Hyaluronic acid gives volume to your skin and has been used as a lubricant in arthritic joints.  It has even been used during eye surgery to protect the retina.  The hyaluronic acid found in Restylane® is not of animal or human origin which means that there is no risk of disease transmittal or allergic reaction, which you might find in other cosmetic fillers.  There is no need for skin tests and the risk of side effects is very low.

How soon will I see results?

The results will be seen immediately.

 

Do I need a skin test?

No.

 

How long do the effects of a Restylane® treatment last?

The length of time the effects of a Restylane® treatment lasts is very individual and depends on many factors, such as the structure of your skin, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded and the injection technique of the practitioner. Experience indicates that touch-up and follow-up treatments will add to the duration. Most people choose to have a new treatment within a year after the treatment of wrinkles and folds and within 6 months after a lip enhancement.

 

What should I do after my Restylane® treatment?

During the first 48 hours after your treatment, do not massage or rub the treated area. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days after the treatment.

You should not expose the treated area to intense heat (e.g. in a solarium or by sunbathing) or extreme cold for the first few days after the treatment in order to avoid the risk of inflammation as the area has been disturbed. However, once Restylane® has integrated into the body, it will adjust to your normal body temperature.

Belotero Dermal Filler

Belotero is the latest, most advanced form of dermal filler available today.  It has a unique ability to integrate with the tissues of your skin, providing volume and a more youthful shape to your face.  Belotero can reduce lines and wrinkles while enhancing your own facial contours.  This treatment is particularly successful around the nose and mouth, achieving smoother skin with natural-looking results. The quick and nearly painless procedure typically takes 20 minutes and most people can return to work immediately afterward.  The results of Belotero treatment are not permanent and vary by individual.  For most patients, the effects are still visible nine months after an injection.  Follow-up treatments are typically done every six to 12 months.
