What is Restylane?
Over time, natural fat begins to deteriorate, resulting in sagging skin, more prominent wrinkles, and a reduction of volume. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically-formulated to act like your body’s naturally-produced moisturizing gel that adds volume to wrinkles for a “just right” result, without looking overdone or artificial. Restylane helps to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years of age.
What to Expect at Renovus Medical Spa
At Renovus Medical Spa, our Restylane injector, Dr. Donald Clemons, is one of the most experienced dermatologists in the Tri-Cities area. In just one, 10 to 20-minute treatment, most users see improvement immediately. There is minimal downtime after treatment, with most clients resuming regular activity immediately following the procedure.
The process is completed in just a few steps:
- Treatment goals are discussed the skin is prepped.
- Specific areas of concern are discussed with the patient to determine treatment plan.
- After a topical numbing agent is applied to decrease discomfort, a series of quick injections are made using a very fine needle. The injections typically feel like a small pinch.
- Some patients may experience temporary swelling for 1-3 days after treating lips.
Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product specifically-designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older. As we age, our lips begin to thin, lose shape, and begin to show vertical lines above the lip. Restylane Silk is designed specifically to provide natural-looking results in these particular areas by using smaller, smoother hyaluronic acid particles than those used in other Restylane products.
Restylane Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to treat your face and hands. Restylane Lyft is safe, effective, and dissolvable. Treatments to your hands and face can be performed during the same appointment and can result in a more complete, youthful-looking appearance.
