When we are young our skin is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow. As we age, our ability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity diminishes, resulting in skin that becomes drier, thinner and less able to replenish itself. Our body’s natural collagen and hyaluronic acid levels decrease and our skin becomes looser. This leads to our skin wrinkling and appearing older than it should.
What Is Restylane?
Approved by the FDA, Dr. Charlotte Ann Rhee is a Board Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon in Huntington, Long Island NY that provides Restylane injections to match your skin. Restylane smoothes wrinkles, sculpts lips and shapes facial contours.
Restylane Treatment Areas
The most common areas for a Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). When used for lips or facial contouring, Restylane will add shape and volume to the area.
How Does Restylane Work?
With its unique ability to bind with water, Restylane is able to perform for many months in your skin. Restylane is able to create volume under your wrinkles, which are then lifted up and smoothed out.
How Long Does A Restylane Treatment Take?
Since no pre-testing is required, a Restylane treatment can be performed almost immediately. It usually takes about 30 minutes depending on the type of correction you want.
Are Restylane Injections Painful?
Most people find the injections relatively painless, but a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area prior to your treatment.
When Will I See Results After
You will be able to see the results as soon as your treatment is completed.
