Volume loss and wrinkles are a natural part of the aging process, however, at Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging, we offer several solutions to achieving a younger appearance. Restylane works instantly to smooth out wrinkles and folds or add subtle volume to the lips.
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that is found naturally in the body and is responsible for giving the skin moisture. When placed under the skin, Restylane can instantly smooth out wrinkles and folds for a younger appearance. Restylane also consists of several specific formulas that can be used to treat specific concerns.
Candidates for Restylane filler are those who are looking for a nonsurgical solution to improving their signs of aging. Restylane can effectively add volume to lines and wrinkles in the lower face, specifically around the nose and mouth. These lines are known as static wrinkles because they are present even when the face is relaxed. Restylane can also be added to the lips for a subtle enhancement. The formula is approved for those 21 and over. Those that are pregnant or breastfeeding should not receive Restylane.
Prior to treatment with Restylane, the skin will be cleansed and a topical numbing cream can be applied to help ensure a comfortable process. Adley DaSilva will then map out where the formula will be injected. A small amount of Restylane will then be placed in the treatment areas either to smooth out wrinkles or add volume to the lips. The injection process only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
There is no required downtime after treatment with Restylane, so patients can get right back to their regular routine. Some swelling, redness, and itching at the injection sites can be expected for the first day. Results of Restylane are instant and patients can enjoy smoother skin and a younger appearance for up to 18 months before a touch-up session is needed.
To begin treatment with Restylane, patients will first need to find a professional injector like Adley DaSilva. If you are in the Port St. Lucie area, contact Cosmetica Plastic Surgery and Anti-Aging to schedule your consultation.
