What is Restylane Contour?

Restylane® Contour is an injectable hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to correct age-related volume loss and midface contour deficiencies. It is FDA approved for use in the cheek area and is usually used to treat hollowing of the cheeks, which is sometimes referred to as “smokers face.”

The innovative crosslinking technology in the formulation ensures a natural appearance when the treatment area is at rest or in motion.

What does Restylane Contour treat?

Restylane Contour is most often used to treat hollowing of the cheeks and create a more youthful look in the jowls, temples, or under the eyes.

The amount of filler required for each treatment depends on the amount of correction needed and the unique characteristics of your face. Your skincare expert will help you determine exactly how much product you’ll need to achieve your desired results.

Who is a candidate for a Restylane Contour in New York City?

The best candidates for a Restylane Contour treatment are typically in men and women who want to refine the shape and contour of the face. These patients may want to restore fullness and definition to the cheekbones in particular, with natural-looking results.

Benefits of a treatment might include:

  • Higher, more accentuated cheekbones
  • Volume restoration in the midface
  • A more youthful facial contour
  • Improvement in nasolabial folds, as the midface is lifted

Candidates should be in good general health with a positive attitude and reasonable expectations.

Restylane Contour Questions & Answers

Q: Are there any possible side effects from Restylane Contour?

A: Treatments with Restylane Contour are safe with only mild side effects:

  • Redness and swelling at the injection site
  • Temporary numbness
  • Mild bruising
  • Tenderness
  • Itching

These temporary reactions occurred up to two days after injections, were mild, and resolved within 1-2 weeks for nearly all patients.

To minimize potential side effects such as bruising, redness, and swelling, abstain from alcohol, aspirin, and ibuprofen for three days following the procedure and longer if you experience persistent side effects or are taking blood thinners. Additionally, apply plenty of sunscreen during the healing process. An ice pack can assist in reducing swelling.

Q: How long will my results last?

A: While Restylane Contour injections typically last about 12 months, they may have long-term benefits if they prevent early facial sagging.

The longevity of your results will depend on several factors, including sun exposure, gender, lifestyle, how quickly your body metabolizes the filler, and the health and elasticity of the skin.

Q: Does a Restylane Contour treatment hurt?

A: Treatment is relatively painless and typically takes just a few minutes to complete, depending on how many sites are treated.

Some patients describe the sensation as similar to a pinch or bee sting, while others reported no pain at all. Most patients experience little to no discomfort during or after the injection. We also offer a variety of options, such as topical numbing cream, for patients that are especially worried about comfort during treatment.

Q: What is recovery from a Restylane Contour treatment like?

A: Expect some swelling around the injection site after treatment, which will resolve within 1-2 weeks. Patients usually return to regular activities right away, sporting a refreshed appearance and a more youthful contour.
