Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically designed to act like your body’s own naturally-produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Restylane® Procedure

As with all cosmetic procedures, you will first discuss your needs and goals with Dr. Krant during your initial consultation. Together, you can design a treatment plan to help you achieve your cosmetic goals.

Dr. Krant uses a fine-tipped needle to inject the Restylane® solution into the desired areas. The length of time for each treatment session can vary, depending on how many areas are being treated. For most women and men, Restylane® injections take about 30 minutes to complete. After treatment, there is no downtime, so you can return to your normal daily activities. However, it is recommended that you avoid sunlight and strenuous exercise immediately after your procedure.

Restylane® Before & After

Restylane® Results & Recovery

After treatment, you may experience some common side effects, including swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and generally last less than 7 days. You can apply a cold compress or ice pack to the area within the first 24 hours after injections to help minimize swelling and bruising.

As these effects diminish on their own over the next few days, your smooth final results will reveal themselves.
