As the science of anti-aging has rapidly evolved, scientists have discovered that when injected into the skin, dermal fillers containing hyaluronic acid can brilliantly restore elasticity, suppleness and resilience. Restylane is one of the most exciting new soft tissue fillers that deliver this innovative technology. Not only does it lift, plump, and invigorate sunken cheeks, Restylane has also proven ideal for augmenting and volumizing the lips.

Details of the
Restylane Procedure

Rather than follow a generic manufacturer’s chart, your doctor will hand-select the injection points for an outcome most customized to your needs. He or she will use a cosmetic stylus to strategically mark the treatment site before numbing the area with a local anesthetic. With expert precision, the surgeon will administer your Restylane injections in the space a few seconds. Most patients are surprised to be in and out of the office in less than 30 minutes in total.

What Can I Expect Post-Injection?

For those patients experiencing any soreness or discomfort after their injection, ice packs can be gently applied to the treatment site. Although patients may return to normal activities immediately, it’s best to avoid touching your face or lips for at least 24 hours. If any questions arise during your recovery, the PPSD team is standing by to assist you, so don’t hesitate to call us.

Your Restylane results can be enjoyed right away, and will continue for several months. To maintain the improvement in your skin, your doctor may recommend additional treatments during routinely scheduled follow up visits.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is unique, in that it is a non-animal-fat hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a clear, sugary, slightly gooey substance that occurs in the body naturally, serving to lubricate joints, as well as other important body systems. The acid has unique capabilities – it can carry up to 1,000 times its weight in water, and has long been recognized for its “plumping” ability.

The Restylane product is a biodegradable gel, and as it is not animal-based, it comes with notable advantages. It was formulated to be identical to the hyaluronic acid that is present naturally in human skin. The size of the particles in the specific Restylane product used in your treatment will be appropriate for the skin condition being addressed.

Is Restylane Right for Me?

Are you tired of seeing those fines lines and grooves in your facial skin, giving your face a tired, weary or older appearance? Have you developed crow’s feet, lines around your mouth, or creases in your cheeks? If you would like to restore a more youthful look to your face, this injectable products could be very effective. As the treatment takes only a few short minutes, and requires no incisions or the need for the removal of tissue, it is rare that a patient will not be considered a good candidate for the treatment, although there are a few exceptions.

We Care For The Health Of Our Patients

Every patient is fully evaluated prior to any treatment, and our Restylane physicians and dermatologists in Charlotte, Gastonia, Belmont, Hickory, and other surrounding cities always hold your health as our top priority. It is advised that Restylane treatments be administered by a medical professional, rather than in a spa environment. It is generally considered important to hold off on these treatments until you reach 18 years of age, as the facial structure changes throughout the adolescent years. The results of your facial filler injections will be obvious almost immediately.

You may experience some slight swelling or redness at the injection sites, but this diminishes quickly. Any side effects usually disappear within a few days. Both products are FDA approved, and deemed safe by that agency. Various formulations of these two products will be appropriate for different sites and conditions of the facial skin, and your treatment plan will be completely customized. Maintaining a natural look with injectable fillers is when the art of the treatment comes into play. We understand facial structure, and how to use these injectable fillers to create a natural, younger, fresher appearance.

What Can I Expect Post-Injection?

The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, and itching at the injection site. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.

One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.

As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection.
