Restylane Before & Afters
What is a Restylane Filler? What are Some Restylane Uses?
Restylane is a cosmetic filler used to restore fullness to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks and mid-face. Making use of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance in the body, these fillers are highly effective at plumping the skin, enhancing contours, softening lines and add volume to the face.
Why Get an HA Cosmetic Filler?
As we age, our bodies produce less Hyaluronic Acid. As a result, our collagen and elastin fibers lack hydration and nourishment and struggle to support the face. Cosmetic fillers provide replenishment to the depleted HA. The result is a revitalized appearance.
What is Restylane Made Of?
Launched in 1996, Restylane was the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a crystal-clear gel called NASHATM, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. NASHA is biodegradable and completely biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid.
Juvederm XC vs. Belotero vs. Restylane Filler: What’s the Difference? Who Makes Restylane?
All of these cosmetic fillers are derived from Hyaluronic Acid to fill, plump and add volume to the skin. The difference is their maker, and, therefore, their specific and proprietary formulation. Restylane’s manufacturer is Galderma, who acquired the rights to Restylane from Medicis in 2014. It had widespread use in Europe for many years. Juvederm is made by Allergan and Belotero by Merz.
How is Restylane Different From Other Hyaluronic Acid-Based Products?
Restylane products are developed with NAHA (non-animal hyaluronic acid) which allows for biocompatibility with the human body. Unlike other hyaluronic acid-based products, such as those made from rooster combs, only Restylane is non-animal-based. This quality virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.
Can Restylane Be Used Anywhere on the Face?
Restylane has been used in more than one million treatments in over 60 countries to correct a variety of facial wrinkles and to enhance the appearance and fullness of lips. It is currently indicated in the U.S. for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. It’s also indicated for lip augmentation.
Restylane Silk vs Lift vs Lyft vs Defyne vs Refyne: What’s the Difference?
The Restylane family of cosmetic dermal fillers includes: Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft (formerly Restylane Perlane), Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Refyne. They all make use of Hyaluronic Acid as their active ingredient. However, they differ by the viscosity and weight of their HA particles. Therefore, each formulation offers a unique balance of the three essential properties of a cosmetic filler: elasticity, cohesity and plasticity. This allows for great versatility in its uses, as well as an ability to target particular skincare concerns with different formulations.
Is One Restylane Dermal Filler Superior to the Others?
No, a comprehensive line of fillers works to target individual skincare needs. Basically, because each formulation is different, one Restylane product will be better suited to add volume to a certain area of the face or for a particular skincare concern.
Restylane vs. Restylane-L: What’s the Difference?
Restylane-L comes with Lidocaine in its formulation, while Restylane does not.
Can You Explain the Actual Restylane Procedure?
Restylane is injected directly into the mid-to-deep dermis for the long-lasting correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. The procedure is simple and usually takes between 15 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. Our Medical Director, Dr. George, MD, will evaluate your face, and mark strategic injection points for placement. Using a super-fine needle, the Restylane injections will take place at various predetermined sites along the treatment area. Finally, he evaluate the treatment area to assess whether additional filler is needed to assure maximum benefit to the skin.
Restylane Results: How long Does Restylane Last?
The procedure is simple and convenient, and results are practically instantaneous. Studies have shown that the average treatment results last six months or even longer. The unique NASHATM technology (which is a patented production process that stabilizes Hyaluronic Acid) helps maintain the cosmetic effect until the injected material is nearly gone. However, cosmetic fillers are not permanent and require a maintenance regime.
How Often Should I Have Restylane Treatments Done?
Restylane lasts twice as long as collagen, so treatments are typically scheduled twice a year. Evidence shows that having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect. It’s important to note that the time between treatment depends on each individual’s skincare concern and treatment goals.
Restylane Pain: Do the Injections Hurt?
Our expert medical injector is trained and experienced in how to inject Restylane quickly and easily. Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may anesthetize the treatment area with a numbing cream, or you may opt for Restylane-L, which contains Lidocaine in its formulation.
What Should Patients Do Prior to Treatment?
Restylane requires no pre-testing, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John’s wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment. These uses may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence.
Is Restylane Safe?
Yes. this cosmetic filler has been used safely by dermatologists and plastic surgeons since 1996 worldwide. Because it’s non-animal-based and fully biocompatible, allergy testing is not required. There is virtually no risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction. Additionally, Restylane adverse effects are rare.
What Restylane Side Effects Should I Expect?
Because cosmetic fillers are minimally invasive, they are safe and effective alternatives to plastic surgery. Following injection, there’s no downtime, and extreme Restylane after effects are uncommon. Most patients can return to normal activity immediately. The treatment is generally easily tolerated; however, some patients describe a mild pinching, stinging or burning sensation at the injection site. It’s advised that intense physical exercise be avoided for 24-48 hours, in order to minimize swelling. The most commonly reported adverse events were temporary redness, bruising, numbness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days. Topical icing is recommended to alleviate these symptoms.
Restylane Filler Cost / Price: How Much Is Restylane Filler?
Restylane offers a price per syringe. However, the total Restylane filler cost depends on the area treated, as well as the correction desired. For example, Restylane around the mouth will be a different price than Restylane cost for lips or Restylane for nasolabial folds. In general, we suggest that you come in for a private consultation to determine the cost of treatment.
With So Many Fillers, How Do I Know Which Restylane is Right for Me?
It’s more important to find a physician with medical training, knowledge of facial anatomy and a keen eye for aesthetics than to master the science behind each particular filler. Because your doctor has an arsenal of specialized fillers now, he has more choices than ever before. Your medical practitioner can create a personalized treatment plan based on your particular aging concerns and individual skincare needs.
