Restylane in Washington, DC
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler. Over the past 15 years Restylane injection has proven to be a safe and effective treatment for the correction of both superficial and deep facial lines/wrinkles in addition to use in scar reduction. Highly trained and experienced providers inject Restylane into the superficial dermis (just underneath the skins surface) to correct mild to moderate nasolabial folds and fine lines around the mouth (marionette lines). Restylane is also used to elevate depressed scars, correct hollows in temples, under eyes, along jaw line and jowl, enhance lip & cheek size and contour, and restore facial symmetry. Restylane is more effective in treating deeper facial lines as well as facial volume restoration of cheeks, jowls, or temples.
How long do results of Restylane treatment last?
Improvement with most low molecular weight hyaluronic acid fillers is temporary, with benefits typically lasting from 6 to 9 months depending on the filler used as well as individual physiology. Studies have shown that with repeated use of these products new organic (self-made) collagen formation does occur over time, resulting in a gradual long-term reduction of lines, wrinkles, and scars, even after degradation of the injected filler.
What can I expect during treatment?
Prior to treatment your provider will discuss your individual goals and desires and recommend the type and amount of filler to achieve those goals. For several years now Restylane has been formulated with pre-mixed Lidocaine, which significantly reduces or eliminates most treatment discomfort. To reduce the pain associated with needle penetration we offer topical numbing cream prior to treatment, however the needle sizes used for fillers are very small and most patients tolerate the procedure very well without any topical anesthesia. During the actual treatment your provider will carefully inject Restylane into the treatment area, occasionally stopping to allow the patient to examine the results in a mirror. Prior to completion of a treatment the patient will have an opportunity to examine their results fully in a mirror and suggest additional treatment or concerns.
