When you think of your ideal skin, what do you think of? For most of us, we imagine tight, smooth skin. However, our body’s natural aging process often has other plans for us. As your body changes, this can cause unwanted changes to your appearance. While it may feel like a surgical procedure is your only option to achieve a refreshed appearance, injectable treatments like Restylane may be used as non-surgical, minimally invasive methods for targeting specific signs of aging. Learn more about the possibilities during a consultation with our team at Athena Plastic Surgery in Stuart, FL!
What Is Restylane?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler utilized to treat volume loss. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is produced by your skin to provide it with essential support and moisture. However, HA production naturally declines over time, creating volume loss or other signs of aging.
Restylane is formulated with synthetic HA. When administered, it can be used to treat:
- Marionette lines
- Nasolabial folds
- Smile lines
Restylane may be used to effectively address the appearance of moderate-to-severe signs of aging. It may also be recommended as a method of non-surgical lip augmentation. When injected, it may enhance the size or shape of lips.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment Session?
Restylane injections are administered in the comfort of our Stuart location. The treatment process is relatively simple, and there is little to no discomfort associated with the experience. You may feel some slight pinching at the injection site.
Treatment sessions are often short, and you should be able to resume your normal daily activities. However, the length of treatment ultimately depends on the concerns treated as well as how severe they are. Although there is no set downtime associated with this treatment process, you may notice some mild tenderness, swelling, or redness in the treatment area.
Most people begin to enjoy initial results of Restylane within the first few days of a session, but results will vary for each person and concern treated. Results typically gradually improve, but they are best achieved and maintained with a series of treatment sessions. Optimal treatment may help results last for months or up to a year.
Could I Benefit from this Dermal Filler?
Restylane is a safe and effective choice for most generally healthy adults. However, it is important to approach treatment with realistic expectations for treatment. While it may be a good non-surgical alternative, it may not achieve as dramatic of results.
A consultation with our team at either of our Florida locations can help determine if this injectable is the best fit for you and your goals. As regular treatment is often recommended to maintain the best results, they can help you develop your personalized treatment plan.
