Benefits of Restylane
Restylane is made up of a gel-like consistency to fill lines, or plump the lip area. This injectable is also made from HA, much like Juvederm. HA is an acronym for hyaluronic acid. This acid is already in our bodies, which is why the FDA finds it perfectly safe for use. Fillers such as this one also promotes collagen production and elasticity in the skin. When used in the lips, it provides volume and shape to create a pleasing pout. The solution being administered through the form of an injection allows for precise treatment that patients find satisfactory to their beauty goals.
Speaking of beauty goals, it’s important to schedule a consultation before deciding if these treatments are right for you. During a consultation you will be examined and assessed about your current state of health and a doctor will determine whether or not you are a good candidate for the treatment. This is also a good time to express what your expectations are and how the treatment can achieve them. Voice any concerns you may have and answer questions honestly to help ensure that the best results possible are achieved.
Treatment with Restylane is very straight forward with no gimmicks. Because this is a noninvasive treatment, meaning there are no incisions necessary, you will not need to word about heavy sedation from anesthetics. Instead, you may receive a cold pack to numb the target area prior to starting the treatment. Once the injections begin, professionals generally administer them quickly to minimize any discomfort. The process can take anywhere from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on your unique treatment. The amount of injections completely depend upon your beauty goals and treatment plan- which, again, is mapped out during consultation.
After your Restylane treatment, you may find yourself experiencing the typical effects of an injection: redness, swelling, tenderness, soreness, etc. These effects can be expected to subside on their own during the first few days. The doctor will give you post care treatment instructions to reduce the risk of any complications- though complications are highly unlikely.
Aside from effects listed above, your lips will settle into their new shape in a day or so. Patients are generally satisfied with their results and return for touch-ups after several months.
