As the skin ages, it begins to lose youthful volume and structure, creating wrinkles and hollowed areas. Restylane® is a family of injectable products designed to rejuvenate the appearance by replenishing lost volume in the face and hands. This hyaluronic acid gel treatment provides long-lasting and natural-looking results without the need for surgery or extended recovery. Patients can also enhance their facial contours with Restylane® and obtain a smoother, more sculpted aesthetic.
Patients may consider treatment with Restylane® if they are concerned about any of the following signs of aging:
Restylane® hydrates the skin with naturally occurring hyaluronic acid and can deliver noticeable improvement immediately. As with most dermal fillers, treatment with Restylane® takes between 15 and 60 minutes to complete. During your initial consultation at Park Avenue Medical Spa, a personalized treatment plan will be developed for your unique goals. One of the following products may be used:
Most patients return to work and their other daily activities within 24 hours of their Restylane® treatment. Potential side effects usually subside within a couple of weeks and may include bruising, swelling, redness, soreness, and itching.
Those who choose to undergo treatment with Restylane® should see some improvement right after their procedure, but it can take one to two weeks to see the final effects. Some patients benefit most from multiple sessions. Results may last as long as 18 months, and regularly scheduled maintenance appointments help preserve them for longer.
