What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid similar to the naturally occurring HA found in the skin. It is used to restore volume lost in the areas of the face from age or a significant weight loss. Once injected, Restylane® leaves the skin smooth, soft and younger looking.
Benefits of Restylane®
Like other dermal fillers, Restylane® offers a way to restore a younger-looking complexion on those who are not at a point where plastic surgery is the best option. It also offers the following benefits:
- Minimal to no side effects
- Long lasting up to a year
- Little to no recovery or downtime
- Very slight risk of adverse reaction
- Quick procedure
Who is the Ideal Candidate for Restylane®?
Restylane® is ideal for anyone who has lost moisture and elasticity in their skin due to age. Since it is made with hyaluronic acid, it is safe and effective for most skin types; however, if anyone has an allergy to certain types of proteins, other options are available.
What Do I Do to Prepare for Restylane®?
With Restylane®, there is no preparation necessary. We do recommend to patients that smoking and any medications or supplements that thin the blood should be avoided prior to and following Restylane® treatments to reduce swelling and any bleeding at the injection sites. Smoking also exacerbates smoker’s line (vertical lines around the mouth) and may hinder the results of Restylane® treatments.
What Happens During My Restylane® Treatment?
Restylane® is injected into the deeper layers of your skin to allow hyaluronic acid to penetrate these layers and increase the volume of the skin. It is injected using a very fine needle to minimize any discomfort during the treatments. If necessary, we can apply a numbing cream to the injection sites to ensure there is no pain during the injections.
How Long Does It Take to Perform a Restylane® Treatment?
With Restylane®, the initial treatment takes no more than an hour depending on how many areas are treated. Most patients require no more than two treatments to restore a naturally younger look. Follow up visits are much shorter, only taking up to 20 minutes to complete.
What to Expect After a Restylane® Treatment
Immediately following Restylane® treatments, there may be some slight redness or swelling at the injection sites. This is temporary and typically resolves itself within a day or two. We recommend you avoid strenuous activities and heavy lifting for about 24 hours to allow the swelling to subside.
When Will I See Results?
You will see the results of Restylane® injections immediately following your treatment. The results improve over time and last up to one year.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost in Los Angeles?
Restylane® varies in cost with each patient and is based on how many areas are treated and the number of injections needed. We review the costs with each patient prior to treatment, along with our payment and financing options, which include cash, checks and major credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
