Restylane treatment is an effective and long lasting alternative for facial rejuvenation. Gaining the look you desire is as easy as it is quick. And the results are instantaneous. No pre-testing is needed and a session often takes less than 30 minutes. Depending on the effects desired, an initial treatment is usually maintained with occasional follow-up treatments. For wrinkle treatments no pain relief is generally necessary, however, it can be easily arranged at your request. When enhancing the lips, pain relief in the form of a local anesthetic is often used.
Understanding the Treatment
During treatment, the crystal- clear gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very thin needle.The gel then gives natural volume and smoothes the wrinkles. The ability of hyaluronic acid products to integrate with adjacent tissues allows the free passage of vital nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is healthy, natural looking skin.
What to Expect After the Treatment
After the treatment, some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the implant site. These typically resolve spontaneously within one to two days after injection into the skin and within a week after injection into the lips. Other types of reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 2000 treated patients have experienced localized reactions thought to be of a hypersensitivity nature. These have usually consisted of swelling at the implant site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These reactions have either started a few days after injection or after a delay of two to four weeks and have generally been described as mild to moderate and self-limiting with an average duration of two weeks.
Real Patient Stories
I believe Dr. Perez and office staff are superb. I got my appointment very quickly and soon after, everything was arranged for the date and time I picked for my surgery. At all times the care was excellent, follow up calls from the doctor himself the night after surgery as well as from the staff for the next 2 following days. I highly recommend the office and Dr. Perez. -Verified PatientRead & Write Reviews
