RESTYLANE® filler can help reduce the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles without surgery. Every day, your complexion is faced with environmental and emotional stimuli that can negatively affect its appearance. Frequent sun exposure can cause the creation of fine lines and wrinkles, and this is made worse by repeated facial expressions, such as smiling or squinting. When you smile or squint, your muscles contract. Over time, this repetition of contracting weakens your skin, which results in the formation of lines, wrinkles, and crow’s feet. At Sutton Place Dermatology, we offer advanced treatments such as RESTYLANE® injections to help visibly reduce any signs of aging.
RESTYLANE® injectable filler is an FDA-approved, clear gel solution that is made up of hyaluronic acid. RESTYLANE® is scientifically designed to act like the hyaluronic acid that is naturally produced by your body. A RESTYLANE® injection can help visibly reduce moderate to severe wrinkles, fine lines, and other imperfections. RESTYLANE® injections provide results by adding volume and fullness to the facial areas affected by wrinkling and fine lines. Because RESTYLANE® is designed to act like the hyaluronic acid that your body produces, RESTYLANE® naturally breaks down and is processed by your body after a period of time. Compared to other facial rejuvenation procedures, RESTYLANE® injections provide more natural-looking results that are long-lasting.
RESTYLANE® integrates with the tissue beneath your skin and attracts water to the tissue to help maintain a fuller, more voluminous shape. Some patients begin to see results shortly after their RESTYLANE® treatment. These results can last up to six months long. RESTYLANE® injections can help provide natural-looking results without the pain or cost of a traditional procedure like a facelift. Virtually any facial area can be treated with RESTYLANE® to smooth out and diminish the appearance of creases, folds, and laugh lines. In some cases, RESTYLANE® can be used to correct hollowness under the eyes and to increase lip size.
RESTYLANE® can add volume to:
After RESTYLANE® injections, you may experience slight swelling, redness, pain, tenderness, or bruising. These symptoms typically only last up to one to two weeks. A RESTYLANE® treatment usually takes under one hour to complete, and there is, in most cases, little to no downtime for most patients. Prior to and after your RESTYLANE® injection, the injection site will be thoroughly cleansed to promote a safe and efficient RESTYLANE® treatment.
Our dermatologists may suggest that you stop taking certain medications prior to your RESTYLANE® injections for the most safe, efficient procedure. Our dermatologists will help tailor a RESTYLANE® treatment or other skin rejuvenation treatments to your individual needs to help maximize results.
After RESTYLANE® injections, you should avoid excessive exposure to sunlight and heat, as these may cause irritation or inflammation of the treatment site. There is minimal down time after RESTYLANE® injections, and most patients return to their daily activity shortly after their RESTYLANE® treatment. After your RESTYLANE® injection, you should try your best to relax your facial muscles and not strain them to promote proper healing and distribution of RESTYLANE®.
