Restylane Fillers

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) holds the key to smooth, hydrated skin. As we age, our skin loses HA due to aging, sun exposure, stress, pollution, and other factors, causing the skin to lose structure and volume and creating unwanted facial wrinkles and folds. The Restylane® family of dermal fillers is specifically designed to target these signs of aging. When injected, these fillers can correct lines and wrinkles around the nose and mouth, hollowed-out cheeks, and thin lips.

What are Restylane Dermal Fillers?

Restylane dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body. Restylane is a clear gel that works in synchronicity with your body’s natural HA production to safely and effectively replenish the lost hyaluronic acid in your skin, smoothing away unwanted facial wrinkles and folds and restoring natural contours around your nose and mouth.

Its gel consistency serves to replace lost volume due to collagen and fat depletion that also occur over time. When injected into the target areas, this cosmetic treatment can provide a more natural, younger-looking appearance by producing smooth and natural skin rejuvenation from the inside out.

Who is a candidate for Restylane fillers?

Restylane fillers provide a great treatment option for any adult who is in good health and prefers a safe, non-invasive, and effective solution for their aging concerns. We typically recommend Restylane to our patients who have moderate to severe static lines around their nose and mouth. Restylane fillers can be used for all skin types and tones. 

Patients should also have realistic expectations of how fillers could improve their appearance. Dermal filler results are temporary, so we recommend candidates return for regular appointments to maintain their results. We encourage you to schedule a consultation at our SOHO, Tribeca, or Uptown, NYC medical spa to find out if Restylane is the best treatment for you.

What to expect during a treatment session in New York

To ensure precise injections, our board-certified dermatologists may mark treatment spots with a pen that uses special ink that washes off right away. Restylane is then injected into your skin in tiny amounts using an ultra-fine needle or a flexible, blunt-tipped cannula, resulting in minimal discomfort. Lidocaine, a numbing agent, is integrated into the formula to help ensure a more comfortable experience. However, numbing cream is also available to optimize your comfort during the procedure. 

The procedure is quick and simple, typically taking anywhere between 5-30 minutes (depending on the area being treated, the extent of the cosmetic issue, and your aesthetic goals), and the results are nearly instantaneous. Restylane filler treatments require little downtime, if any, and most patients return to their normal activities immediately after treatment.

Restylane Fillers Questions & Answers

Q: Will my Restylane injections hurt?

A: In general, Restylane injections cause little to no pain or discomfort. Our board-certified dermatologists administer Restylane using a very fine needle or a blunt-tipped cannula, depending on the treatment area and the amount of filler needed. Our team also consists of only highly trained, expert physicians. If you are concerned about discomfort during treatment, you can choose to have a topical numbing cream or ice applied to the area to be treated beforehand.

Q: What is recovery like after a Restylane treatment?

A: After treatment, you should be able to resume your normal activities. You will be allowed to drive yourself home after your procedure. There is minimal downtime involved, but it is generally recommended that you avoid intense physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to minimize swelling and bruising. Your dermatologist will provide you with specific aftercare instructions.

Q: Will there be side effects after my procedure?

A: Dermal fillers are known to be very safe and effective. Side effects from dermal fillers like Restylane are uncommon and temporary if they do occur. You may experience minor swelling, bruising, and slight redness at the injection site. Most symptoms resolve themselves within 1-2 days.

Q: When will I see results?

A: You will see immediate improvement after your Restylane injections. There may be some mild swelling or bruising around the injection sites that will interfere with your initial result, but once the skin heals fully, which usually only takes a day or two, the full results become apparent and will last for 6-18 months in most patients.

Q: How long will my results last?

A: Restylane injection results will last from 6-18 months, depending on the location and the amount used. You can maintain your refreshed appearance with regular treatment sessions.
