Made by Medicis, RESTYLANE® and RESTYLANE-L® are Soft Tissue Fillers. Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, adding volume and fullness to the skin.
Who is it good for?
People who want to soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles, most commonly in the lower two-thirds of the face. RESTYLANE® and RESTYLANE-L® are also great for those who want an improvement in the look of their skin, but are not yet ready for (or do not wish to have) a surgical cosmetic procedure. RESTYLANE® and RESTYLANE-L® are often used in conjunction with other techniques like laser resurfacing, medical-grade facials, or neuromodulators to complement and enhance those results.
What should I expect?
Once you have discussed your needs with Dr. Erickson, your treatment can take place in less than fifteen minutes. Improvement is usually instantly noticeable, though you may have some minor swelling from the procedure. RESTYLANE® results typically last between three and six months.
Are there risks?
Though less common, there is a chance of minor bruising associated with any injectable. To lessen your chances of bruising, we recommend discontinuing use of products like Aspirin, Blood-Thinners, Fish-Oils, Alcohol, Aleve, and any aspirin-based products like Alka Seltzer for 2 weeks prior to your procedure. We do not treat patients who are pregnant or nursing. Please call our office for a consultation to discuss if you are a good candidate for this treatment, we are always happy to consult you and answer any questions you may have.
