Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to instantly, visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds or add fullness to your lips

The Restylane® Procedure

Like with most cosmetic procedures, you will need to sit down and discuss your concerns with Dr. Krant. Together, you can work out a treatment plan to meet all of your needs. Once a plan has been made, Dr. Krant will proceed with the injections. Dr. Krant uses a fine tipped needle to inject the Restylane® solution into the desired areas. The length of time may vary depending on how many areas are being treated, but most injections last about 30 minutes. After treatment, there is no downtime, so you can return to your daily activities, though you may not want to go immediately back to work the same day. It is always best to avoid sunlight soon after a procedure such as Restylane® injections.

Restylane® Before & After

Restylane® Results & Recovery

After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 – 18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.

Am I a candidate for Restylane®

Restylane® is an excellent choice for anyone who wants to look younger without surgery. There is almost no risk of allergic reactions and many who are not candidates for general anesthesia and major surgery due to health issues may still be a good candidate. Anyone wanting a fuller face or lips may be a perfect candidate for either of these dermal fillers.
