You’ve likely heard of dermal fillers. These anti-aging solutions have gained traction over the past few years as people seek to reduce wrinkles and enhance facial volume. At Kaniff Cosmetic Medical Center, we offer several brands of dermal fillers, and one of the most popular is Restylane.
Restylane injections are perfect for individuals seeking to enhance their lip size, add volume to their cheeks, and fill in fine lines and wrinkles. The treatment works almost instantaneously, and you’ll see further improvements in the days following your Restylane filler procedure.
What Is Restylane?
Restylane is a type of dermal filler made from hyaluronic acid. Your body naturally produces hyaluronic acid; it keeps your cheeks plump and prevents fine lines from forming.
However, over time, your body naturally slows hyaluronic acid production, which results in sagging skin, lost volume, fine lines, and wrinkles.
While the signs of aging on the skin usually appear minor in your late 20s and 30s, wrinkles tend to worsen in your 40s and 50s. Restylane injections can restore the natural plumpness of your face, reducing the appearance of fine lines.
What Concerns Can Restylane Fillers Treat?
Restylane fillers can treat various skin concerns, depending on the type of filler you choose. We offer five Restylane fillers: Restylane, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Lyft, and Restylane Silk. Most formulations of Restylane last up to 12 months before maintenance sessions are necessary.
Restylane is the first iteration of the company’s filler and treats aging concerns like fine lines and wrinkles. Restylane is appropriate for filling moderate to severe wrinkles, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, tear troughs, and lips.
Restylane Refyne is best for individuals with moderate fine lines and wrinkles. It is appropriate for treating nasolabial folds, marionette lines, vertical lines above the lips, and other areas.
Restylane Defyne is a good choice for individuals with severe wrinkles who require an additional volume lift. Usually, Restylane Defyne is appropriate for the cheeks and nasolabial folds.
Restylane Lyft is helpful for adults seeking enhanced volume in their cheeks and along the areas of the nasolabial folds. Restylane Lyft penetrates the deeper layers of the skin. You can combine Restylane Lyft with other Restylane formulations for optimal results.
Restylane Silk is effective for individuals seeking smooth, plump lips. The formulation is directly injected into the lips, resulting in a full and natural appearance. Unlike other Restylane fillers, Restylane Silk lasts for several months before touch-up appointments are necessary.
What to Expect During a Restylane Appointment
Restylane should be among your top choices if you’re considering dermal fillers. However, we offer several different filler options, and we’ll help you decide whether Restylane suits your needs.
Before treatment, you’ll meet with us for a short consultation to discuss your skin concerns. We’ll ask you for your medical history and list of medications you are taking to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure.
Once we understand your concerns, we’ll recommend the appropriate Restylane fillers. In some cases, we may use multiple types to achieve the best results.
A Restylane filler treatment is fast and requires no downtime. Your injections should take less than 30 minutes to administer. Many people choose to have Restylane treatments on their lunch breaks and return directly to the office afterward.
Your results may be immediately apparent following your treatment. However, it could take a few days for the filler to settle fully into your skin, so we recommend that you allow up to a week to realize the full results.
Benefits of Restylane
As with all dermal fillers, Restylane offers its own set of benefits.
Reduces Signs of Aging
One of the top benefits of Restylane is its ability to reduce the signs of aging. Few treatments are available that significantly reduce wrinkles the way Restylane does. Patients must undergo surgical procedures, like a facelift, to obtain similar results.
Restylane allows you to avoid long recovery periods associated with cosmetic surgery. After treatments, you’ll notice fewer wrinkles and fine lines and a bounce to your face that replaces lost volume.
Improves Facial Contours
Restylane can improve facial contours and eliminate the sunken look that some patients develop as they age. It’s possible to enhance the symmetry of your face and its volume, all with a few injections. Patients often say that they appear to be more youthful than they did before the procedure.
Enhances Lip Size
Whether you were born with thin lips or they have naturally thinned with age, Restylane can enhance their volume. Results from lip enhancement are natural and give the appearance of a smooth, healthy mouth. Individuals can choose to plump their lips for a special occasion or maintain the look year-round with regular maintenance treatments.
Quick and Efficient Procedure
Getting Restylane injections is quick. Appointments often last less than an hour, so you won’t need to worry about spending a significant part of your day in our office.
Restylane is one of the longest-lasting dermal filler treatments around. All of the Restylane fillers for the face last up to a year before maintenance treatments are necessary. You can count on us to deliver the results you’re looking for in a single procedure.
Discover the Benefits of Restylane
If you’re interested in Restylane fillers, we can’t blame you. Restylane does wonders for individuals seeking to restore a youthful appearance without resorting to surgical options.
