Over time, your skin loses volume as hyaluronic acid gets depleted. With Restylane®, we can restore that volume to reduce the appearance of conditions such as:
- Nasolabial folds (smile lines)
- Marionette lines
- Hollow tear trough area
- Thin lips or lip wrinkles
Beneath the skin surface, Restylane® does the following:
- Combines with your naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid
- Binds with water
- Increases skin volume and hydration
What to Expect After Treatment With Restylane®
Restylane® is biodegradable and long-lasting. After treatment, your body will begin to break down, metabolize, and eventually clear away the product. Your results can last 6 to 12 months, but duration may vary, so ask Dr. Aboolian when you should return for a touch-up treatment.
During the first 24 hours after your injection(s), you may be advised to avoid certain activities such as exercise, sun exposure, and alcohol consumption. If you experience swelling in the treated area, Dr. Aboolian may instruct you to apply ice for a short period of time. Side effects of Restylane® are typically mild or moderate in nature. They include but are not limited to redness, tenderness, firmness, swelling, bumps, bruising, itching, and discoloration. Ask us for more information if you are concerned about these adverse events.
