Dermal fillers are gel-like substances, soft to the touch and easily pliable to produce desired results. The treatment goal is to create a natural structure to the face by filling in lines and wrinkles, restoring shape, lift, and volume.
Every dermal product we use is designed to create a different result. At your consultation, we will discuss your desired look, goals, are and how to achieve these results. We are all unique, and the product and amount used varies based on age, lifestyle, previous treatments, and desired results. Results appear almost instantly and last 6 – 12 months depending on product and injection placement.
Restylane fillers are injected into the skin through a fine needle or blunt micro-cannula. Fillers add volume, shape, rejuvenate, and fill in wrinkles. After injections, your provider may gently massage the treated area to even out the gel.
Restylane treatments are not lengthy. Depending on the area, it takes about 15-45 minutes. Your provider may recommend a touchup treatment about two weeks after the initial treatment to optimize the results.
Restylane treatments are non-permanent injectables, and the effects will diminish with time. Touchup treatments are recommended to maintain aesthetic results.
Immediately after treatment, avoid applying make-up, but you can use a light cover-up to conceal any remaining redness.
The most common side effects are treatment site reactions like swelling, slight bruising, redness, tenderness, and slight pain. These side effects usually disappear within one week after treatment.
