We all need a secret weapon or two in our beauty arsenals. Today, let’s talk about a new favorite: Restylane. This hyaluronic acid dermal filler can smooth away wrinkles and plump up the lips for a natural-looking, youthful radiance. If you haven’t tried it yet, give us a call and come on in. We’re certain you’ll love Restylane just as much as we do.
What Is Restylane?
Scientifically put, Restylane is a clear gel hyaluronic acid filler. But, for those of you that aren’t big on medical terminology, a bit of explanation is in order. Hyaluronic acid is a substance (a type of sugar, actually) naturally found in your body. As you age, these levels decrease. Hyaluronic acid fillers, like Restylane, are specifically formulated to act like your own naturally produced hyaluronic acid to instantly and visibly reduce the signs of aging. Restylane works well on facial wrinkles and folds across the face.
The Restylane family has a variety of filler products, each specifically formulated for different aesthetic uses. We offer both Restylane and Restylane Silk (great for use in and around the lips). Dr. Chang can help you determine which Restylane product is best for your needs.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Treatment with Restylane is quick and easy. Generally, the injections take less than an hour, start to finish. After treatment, head right back to work. Unlike more invasive cosmetic treatments, Restylane is minimally invasive and requires no downtime. You’ll see results instantly. We can even combine Restylane treatments with some other procedures including Botox.
Many patients experience a bit of redness or swelling after treatment, but this fades quickly and can be covered with makeup almost immediately.
Restylane for Lip Augmentation
If you want fuller lips, Restylane can help. Both Restylane and Restylane Silk can be used for lip augmentation. Restylane products are the first and only products FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over 21. When expertly injected, the results are very natural looking (no duck lips here) and long lasting. If you want gorgeous lips, ask us about Restylane.
Restylane Silk is specifically designed for use in the lip area. It features a smaller particle size for smoother, more natural looking results.
Restylane for Wrinkles
Restylane is also a great choice for fighting wrinkles and folds. Dr. Chang is a skilled and highly practiced injector that understands the right amount of product for each situation. Little wrinkles or deep ones, she’ll work with you to ensure that you achieve the best possible results.
