Restylane is a cosmetic procedure using an injectable filler that treats facial wrinkles and folds, provides lip enhancement, smooths lines around the mouth, and adds lift and volume to the cheeks and to the back of the hands. It restores a more youthful appearance in the fight against aging. The treatment of dermal filler is one of the most common non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the U.S.
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that can provide a multitude of benefits to your face.
One of the biggest advantages of these types of fillers is that they can be reversed with a simple injection of another medication. There are no chances of lumps or thickening from granulomas that plague the non-HA fillers. Here are five types of Restylane fillers available in your Palm Springs area:
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural occurring, hydrating substance found in your skin. The process of aging reduces the production of hyaluronic acid and collagen resulting in saggy and wrinkly facial skin.
Restylane adds volume to your facial tissue using hyaluronic acid to stimulate the production of collagen, which is the connective tissue that plumps your skin. It will help correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and from the corners of your mouth to your chin (marionette lines).
The treatment of Restylane can take as little as 15 minutes and no more than an hour depending on the area that is to be treated.
During the procedure, you will be injected with Restylane into a targeted area that will be lightly massage for even distribution. The injections contain a small amount of lidocaine to minimize any pain you might feel during your treatment. There is no downtime and you can return to work after your treatment.
Any person in good physical health and who has realistic expectations about dermal fillers are good candidates for a Restylane Rancho Mirage treatment.
Some of the best candidates are individuals experiencing fine wrinkling issues (as long as they do not have brittle skin) and looking to improve the appearance of their facial lines.
Restylane is a safe treatment with some bruising and swelling to be expected. Some side effects can include bumps, headache, infection, itchiness at the injection site, lump formation, numbness, redness, and some tenderness. They should subside within a month after your treatment.
There is minimal recovery for a Restylane treatment with most patients returning to work or normal activities right after their visit.
However, you should avoid strenuous activities, alcohol and exposure to the sun for at least the first 24 hours. Using a cold compress to the injection area for ten minutes every hour will help reduce the swelling. It is recommended that you remain in an upright position for four hours after receiving your injection. For the first night or two, sleep with your head elevated with propped up pillows can help reduce swelling.
