Restylane Treatment in San Diego
Restylane is a dermal filler used to treat wrinkles and fine lines. Along with getting rid of wrinkles, it can also help add volume to the skin, filling in hollow points and contours on the face. It is an easy, efficient, and popular way to get youthful and beautiful skin.
What Areas Does It Treat?
This filler can be used to fix a variety of wrinkles and creases throughout the face. Here are the most popular areas:
- Smile lines that go from the nose to the corners of your mouth
- Wrinkles that go from the mouth down toward the jawline
- Near the lips or mouth to add volume and definition
- Under the eyes to get rid of signs of age and dark circles, hollow points, wrinkles, and brow contours.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane uses a hyaluronic acid gel that is a naturally occurring substance in your skin. The acid gel works to absorb water and nutrients, as well as act as a cushion for joints. When injected, it expands to fill in fine lines and wrinkles while adding volume to sunken areas. The extra water that comes with this product also gives the skin surface a vibrant and fresh glow, that is beautiful to the eyes and soft to the touch. Therefore, this filler increases the production of collagen to firm up the skin to prevent wrinkles over time.
What to Expect From Restylane Injections
This filler is a quick and easy procedure. The filler will be injected into a previously specified injection point with a thin needle. Since there is already lidocaine in the syringe, no numbing cream is necessary. The whole procedure will take somewhere between 10 and 30 minutes.*
Is Restylane Safe?
Yes! It is a safe and minimally invasive procedure with minimal risks involved.* After the procedure, no resting or downtime is needed, as you can go on with your everyday activities without restrictions.* Immediately after the treatment, there may be some minimal side effects, including redness, swelling, slight bruising, and some sensitivity at the injection site.* In some cases, small bumps may appear under the skin. If the bumps persist for a week, make sure to contact a medical professional.
