What Can You Expect From Restylane Treatment?
As you’ve gotten older, you’ve probably noticed some changes to the way your skin looks and feels. Aging has plenty of benefits, like wisdom, experience, and a more solid sense of self. But it can also have some unwanted side effects, like a loss of volume in your face and wrinkling and sagging of the skin.
If these are side effects that you wish you could get rid of, you’re in luck. At our clinic, our Restylane treatments will provide you with an effective and safe way to get back a more youthful appearance. Wondering what the treatment process is like? When you come to us, we’ll offer you safe, effective, and fast treatment with long-lasting results that you’ll love.
Before you can receive your injections, we’ll need to have a consultation with you. This is important because it helps us determine what your specific concerns are. This allows us to tailor your treatment plan to your needs. We’ll also help you set realistic expectations for your treatment.
We’ll take a look at your medical history to ensure that this treatment option is the safest one for you. If we determine that this is the right way to treat your aging concerns, we’ll set you up with your appointment and provide you with instructions on how to prepare.
Preparing for Your Injections
Before your appointment, we’ll tell you how you should prepare for your treatment. Your full instructions will be simple and easy to follow.
To help prevent bruising from your injections and to ensure that your treatment is the safest and most effective it can be, there are a few things you’ll need to avoid. Don’t take supplements or medications like vitamin E or aspirin that could thin out your blood. For the day or two before you receive your injections, you’ll also need to avoid smoking tobacco and drinking alcohol.
When you come to our clinic, we’ll do everything we can to make sure your experience is the best it can be. We’ll begin by carefully preparing your skin to keep the treatment process safe and effective. First, we’ll thoroughly clean the areas where you’ll be receiving your injections. Then we may apply a small amount of numbing cream to help keep you comfortable.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll use multiple strategic injections, applying small amounts of the product at a time. This will help keep your results subtle and natural-looking. Your treatment process will be fast and shouldn’t take more than an hour.
You’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your treatment is complete. This is one of the major benefits of getting dermal fillers. Your recovery process will be fast and easy, and there will be no downtime necessary once you leave. You’ll be able to get back to your everyday life right away.
Just be mindful of a few things once you leave. Don’t stay out in direct sunlight, and avoid any activities that might make you sweat excessively for the next few days. You should also refrain from drinking alcohol and smoking.
What Exactly Is Restylane?
Getting this dermal filler will provide you with an effective and safe way to look younger and feel more confident in the way your skin appears. But what exactly is it?
This is an FDA-approved dermal filler made with hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient. You can find hyaluronic acid already present in various parts of your body. This includes your skin as well as your connective tissues and your eyes.
How Does It Work?
When it’s injected into your skin, the hyaluronic acid will perform a few different tasks. First, hyaluronic acid is known for its ability to retain moisture by attaching itself to moisture molecules. By doing this, it helps fill in the area where it’s been injected while also helping to maintain your skin’s natural barrier.
The other thing that that hyaluronic acid will do is stimulate your body’s production of a protein called collagen. Your skin already has collagen in it. This protein helps your skin stay elastic, and it also provides it with its structure. However, as you get older your levels of collagen will lower. This dermal filler will get your body to produce more of it, firming your skin and helping it stay strong.
What Areas Can Restylane Treat?
Are you wondering if this dermal filler could be right for you? One of the greatest things about it is that it’s a safe and effective way to get younger-looking and healthier skin.
There are several different types of this filler. Depending on what your concerns are and what results you’d like to see, you might receive one or more types during your treatment.
As your body begins to lose amounts of collagen and hyaluronic acid, you’ll notice a significant amount of volume loss all over your face. This may be more obvious in some areas than in others. One of the places where you’ll see a noticeable loss of volume is in your cheeks.
If you’re looking to fill in hollow cheeks, then the Lyft formula will be perfect for you. This is designed to make your cheeks look more voluminous which will make you look younger. It will also add more definition to your cheeks and lift any sagging skin to prevent the formation of jowls.
Whether you’ve always had thin lips or your thin lips are a result of a loss of collagen as you’ve gotten older, you may not be happy with the way they are affecting your overall appearance. While plump lips can help you look youthful, thin lips can age your face and make you look more serious than you’d like.
You can use Silk to put more volume into your lips. This will allow them to look fuller and plumper. It can also help to add more definition to your lips and will make them look more symmetrical.
It’s natural to lose volume all over your face as you get older, but the eye area tends to be one of the most drastically affected. That’s because the skin here is much thinner than the skin on the rest of your face, which means that signs of aging tend to appear faster and more prominently.
The original Restylane formula is the perfect solution to tear troughs or the dark circles under your eyes that might be making you look permanently tired. By filling in this area, the filler will help your eyes look younger, brighter, and more alert.
Have you noticed the appearance of vertical lines forming around your nose and mouth area? These lines are called nasolabial folds. They’re also known as laugh lines or smile lines. They are caused by a combination of volume loss in that part of your face as well as repeated facial movements like smiling.
If you’re not happy with the way these wrinkles are making you look, this dermal filler has two options for you. For less severe lines, Refyne will provide you with an effective way to diminish their appearance. However, patients with deeper lines can receive Defyne to help get rid of them.
Who Is a Candidate?
Because this dermal filler is made with an ingredient that you can already find naturally produced by your body, it’s an extremely safe option for almost anyone. However, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid it, as should potential candidates who have had bad reactions to similar fillers in the past.
With that said, if you are overall healthy and you are looking to treat any of the above concerns, then this dermal filler will provide you with a fast-acting, safe, and effective way to get back your younger appearance.
