What is Restylane®

Restylane® has been a popular treatment option for our patients to attain smooth and supple skin for fine lines, wrinkles and facial contours.

However, with recent advances we have found that some other treatments also have excellent results and last longer than Restylane.

One of the options is Juvederm and the other is our newest laser technique for Skin Resurfacing from Palomar.

See specific pages for more details:

  • Juvederm

  • Skin Resurfacing

  • Please call or make an appointment to discuss which will be best for you.



    RESTYLANE®
    FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    How long will the treatment session take?

    Treatment with RESTYLANE is a very quick and easy process. As no pre-test is needed, the treatment can be carried out immediately. A treatment generally takes 30 minutes. The time differs somewhat, depending on the correction you wish to have performed.

    What can be treated?

    RESTYLANE can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, lip enhancements and shaping facial contours. The most common areas are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips, although other sites can also be treated. Very superficial or very deep wrinkles may be difficult to correct. Please consult your physician for an assessment.

    How soon will I see the results?

    The results can be seen immediately.

    What will I look like after the treatment?

    Immediately after the treatment, you can expect slight redness, swelling, tenderness or an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection. The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days.
