Unlike many other dermal fillers, Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid, a substance your body naturally produces. Plastic Surgery Affiliates offers Restylane® injections to patients in Nashville, Brentwood, Hendersonville and the surrounding areas in Tennessee.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® injections contain a compound known as hyaluronic acid that adds hydration and provides volume to the skin. This substance is found naturally in the body, but over time its production begins to decrease, causing the skin to wrinkle and sag. Restylane® injections swell the tissues with water, smoothing away wrinkles and restoring plumpness to sagging areas. As a result, the skin becomes smoother, fuller, and more youthful-looking.
What Areas Does Restylane® Treat?
Restylane® can be used to add fullness to areas of the face such as the lips, cheeks and forehead. It is a fast, effective way to smooth facial lines, define the lip border, and add fullness and plumpness to thinning lips. In addition, it is effective at reducing both deep and shallow wrinkles.
Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane® Treatment?
Restylane® can smooth and plump problem areas of the facial skin. If you are experiencing loss of lip fullness, fine and deep lines, and sagging cheek areas, Restylane® can restore plumpness and firmness to these drooping areas, smooth wrinkles, and create an overall more youthful appearance. Restylane® injections can take years off your face.
To be a good candidate, you should not be allergic to any of the ingredients in Restylane®, or previously have had a reaction to any dermal filler. Let Dr. Hueneke know if you have any allergies, particularly to medication, so that he can determine if Restylane® is safe for you.
What Does a Restylane® Treatment Entail?
Restylane® is injected into the areas to be treated with an ultra-fine needle, after receiving a lidocaine or epinephrine block to reduce pain. The procedure takes less than an hour and is administered by Dr. Hueneke himself. Restylane® is safe, effective and requires no downtime. Patients can return to work or resume their normal activities immediately after treatment, although some bruising may be noted over the next week or two.
What are the Typical Results of Receiving Restylane®?
You should see an immediate improvement in the areas that have been treated with minimal bruising or swelling. Restylane® will help fill, smooth, and minimize the lines, wrinkles, and folds into which it is injected, as well as plump the lips in a natural appearing way. For most patients, Restylane® lasts anywhere from six months to one year. Additional treatments may be required to achieve and maintain optimal results.
What is the Cost of Restylane®?
Because each Restylane® patient has different needs, you’ll want to discuss prices with your doctor or a member of his staff. The friendly and knowledgeable team at Plastic Surgery Affiliates is available for one-on-one consultations to discuss pricing, as well as answer any questions or ease any concerns you may have about receiving Restylane. We’re happy to provide you with all the information you need to reach your aesthetic goals.
