What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a unique injectable filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that naturally occurs in the body. Hyaluronic acid works to add volume and hydration to the skin, which can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
What are the benefits of Restylane® injections?
Restylane® injections can help to temporarily reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. In addition, Restylane® can help add volume and hydration to the skin, which can result in a more youthful appearance.
What are the potential side effects of Restylane® injections?
Some common side effects of Restylane® injections include bruising, swelling, redness, and pain at the injection site. These common side effects are typically temporary and often resolve on their own within a few days.
How long do Restylane® injections last?
The results of Restylane® injections typically last for around six months. However, individual results may vary.
Is there anyone who should not receive Restylane® injections?
Restylane® injections are not recommended for pregnant or nursing women, as well as people with certain medical conditions including bleeding disorders or infections. It is important to speak to your doctor prior to receiving Restylane® injections to ensure that they are right for you.
What should I expect during and after my Restylane® injection appointment?
During your Restylane® injection appointment, your doctor will clean the treatment area and then inject the filler into your skin. After the injection is completed, you might experience some redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection site. These side effects are often temporary and should resolve on their own within a few days.
