Everyone deals with facial volume loss at some point. This common concern often reveals itself in the form of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and thin lips. Fortunately, we can reduce and sometimes even reverse many of the signs of aging with Restylane® injections. Restylane® is just one of the many dermal fillers offered at Le Beau Visage Medical Spa. If you’re interested in finding out if this popular treatment is right for you, call our office in Frisco, TX to book your first appointment with Dr. Riehs!
How It Works
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based filler that works to support the natural restorative properties found in the skin. The hyaluronic acid found in the gel binds with water molecules within the skin, promoting hydration and volume restoration. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally produced by the body, so fillers like Restylane® come with very minimal risk of an allergic reaction.
How It’s Done
Restylane® treatments are quick and straightforward. As with all services we offer, treatment will begin with a consultation with our specialist to ensure that Restylane® is the best course of action for you. Treatment sessions themselves can typically be completed within 30 minutes, after which you can go right back to your daily routine. Initial results often last upwards of two years.
What Can Restylane® Treat?
Restylane® is often the treatment of choice for patients who want to address facial wrinkles such as marionette lines or nasolabial folds. It also makes an excellent filler for those who want fuller lips.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Restylane®?
Restylane is formulated for patients aged 21 and over who may be experiencing the effects of lost volume due to aging. Because it is minimally invasive and doesn’t require anesthesia, almost any adult in generally good health is a good candidate for treatment.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® comes with many benefits that make it a popular aesthetic treatment, including the following:
- Quick treatment time
- Little to no downtime
- Minimally invasive
- Long-lasting results
Are There Any Side Effects?
Potential side effects from Restylane® are typically minor and resolve on their own within a few days. Some of the more common side effects include swelling, itching, redness, or bruising at the site of injection.
