Restylane is a popular dermal filler used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore facial volume. It is a hyaluronic acid-based product that mimics the body's own natural hyaluronic acid, providing a youthful look. Restylane is most commonly used to treat laugh lines and puppet lines, as well as lip augmentation, tear grooves, and wrinkles from the nose to the corners of the mouth. It can also be used to add volume to areas around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and lips.
The loss of collagen and hyaluronic acid production over time is what causes wrinkles and minor signs of aging. To combat this, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston offers advanced cosmetic injectables such as Restylane. During an evaluation with an experienced dermatologist in Dallas, TX, you can learn about the different types of Restylane fillers available.
The injections are done on an outpatient basis, usually the same day as your appointment. Restylane is given with fine needles, followed by a cold compress for your comfort and to reduce bruising and swelling. We then give you post-procedure instructions for caring for the treated area at home. Any side effects can be treated if they occur.
It's best to note that Restylane is a temporary solution for restoring facial volume. We may ask you to attend a follow-up appointment within six months so that we can re-evaluate your characteristics. The good news is that Restylane injections usually last 6 months to a year or longer, depending on the specific product used and the way you metabolize it.Restylane Refyne is used for wrinkles that can appear from the nose to the corners of the mouth, while Restylane Defyne is used for wrinkles around the nose and mouth. It has recently been approved by the FDA to restore volume to the hands as well.
