Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Comprised of Hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance that already exists in the human body, it is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHA,™ or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery we are proud to offer our patients the highest quality of treatment to help them achieve their cosmetic goals.
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the comfort of local anesthesia, the Restylane filler will be injected into the skin using a fine needle where added volume is desired. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.
What to Expect with Restylane®
The results following a Restylane injection will be seen immediately and can last up to a full year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide.
Restylane Alternative Fillers
While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.
Best Filler for Lips?
Restylane is one the more popular derma fillers used to add volume to the lips. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to 6 months.
Best Place for Restylane?
A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward.
How Often Do I Treat Myself?
Most results will last a full year, however some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have another injection at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
"Rosalie, Please tell Dr. Snyder he de-aged me by at least (3) years. I cannot thank him enough. It's a miracle! And tell him he needs to get more photos up on his website. I would have started coming to him (5) years ago. Thank you both. You are the best. I wanted to hold your hand - not Reena's! Lol."- K.P. / Office Visit / Mar 10, 2017
