Considering a wrinkle treatment? Restylane is an excellent option. Restylane is the first and only non-animal-based dermal filler that can safely work to erase wrinkles, folds or minor scars in your skin. Using hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring chemical in your body) Restylane instantaneously restores fullness and smoothness to desired areas.
Restylane, delivered in tiny amounts via an ultrafine needle, can produce results that last for six months or longer. This is typically longer than collagen injections and is a nice adjunct to Botox injections, which relaxes facial muscles to reduce wrinkles. We may recommend a touch-up treatment before the product has totally dissipated to ensure the best results.
Why Choose Restylane?
Restylane NASHA (Non-animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid) is a crystal-clear gel and is preferred by many patients because it is both biodegradable and biocompatible with the human body. What does this mean to you? Restylane virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reaction.
Restylane has been in use for over ten years on over a million patients and is very safe and effective, however there are a few precautions to consider before your Restylane treatment. Common side effects may include slight swelling and redness at the injection site lasting up to three days. In addition, note that patients should not use aspirin, St. John’s Wort, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or high doses of vitamin E before treatment as these substances may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site.
