Restylane® injections are a growing favorite for smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, and improving other facial features. Approved by the FDA in December 2003, Restylane can produce positive results on facial wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose. Another benefit is the long-lasting results, as the effects of Restylane treatments can last six months or more.

What to Expect During Treatment:

Restylane® can instantly soften aging lines or improve your looks by enhancing your natural features. Restylane® restores volume and smooths irregular lines and imperfections. Long lasting but not permanent, Restylane® allows you to stay in control of your looks.

When you arrive:

If this is your first visit, we will ask about your medical history, including any allergies you may have or medications you take and will explain wrinkle treatment with Restylane®. No skin test is required because Restylane® does not contain any animal-derived ingredients.

Determining your treatment needs:

Dr. Young will examine the soft tissue of your face to assess the depth of wrinkles and folds to determine the best treatment for you. Pre and post-treatment photographs are typically taken.

Before the procedure:

Although anesthesia is not required, Dr. Young may use topical or injectable anesthesia to numb the treatment area first.

The procedure:

Restylane® is injected into the skin in small amounts using a very fine needle. The gel provides hydration and structure and gives natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips. It is a subtle approach to enhancing looks naturally. The treatment is very quick and often takes less than 30 minutes. The treatment benefits can normally be seen instantly and Restylane® does not affect facial expression.

After the procedure:

You can expect slight redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching and/or bruising following Restylane® treatment. This is the same as you might expect with any type of injection. However, the discomfort is temporary and generally disappears after a few days. With lip enhancement, it is wise to choose your treatment time with care since your lips may become swollen and appear slightly uneven for a few days.

Returning to the office for your follow-up appointments is essential to ensure the best possible results.
