How Soon Do You See Results From Restylane?
If you’re unhappy with the way aging has changed your skin, Restylane treatments could be exactly what you need to look and feel your best again. Once the product is injected into your skin, it will take an immediate effect, offering you the fast and noticeable results you’re looking for.
However, this won’t be the extent of your results. The product will continue to work and you’ll see the full results of your treatment after a week or two.
What Is Restylane?
This injectable dermal filler is applied to the desired areas of your face to help it maintain a more youthful, healthy appearance. There are several different formulas available, and the formulas you get will depend on what areas of concern you have.
The main ingredient in all of these formulas is hyaluronic acid. This is a sugar that your body produces. When injected into your face, the hyaluronic acid provides more fullness and helps you get back to your more youthful appearance. It also encourages your body to produce more collagen.
What Causes Changes to the Skin?
Your skin uses several chemicals to maintain its flexibility as well as to stay full and plump. Chemicals like hyaluronic acid keep your face looking full and youthful, while collagen is responsible for maintaining your skin’s elasticity.
While you may have high amounts of these chemicals present in your skin in your youth, the older you get, the less well your body can produce them on its own. When this loss of volume and elasticity are combined with repeated facial movements, you’ll start to notice the appearance of wrinkles as well as sagging.
What Can It Treat?
Do your eyes look constantly tired? Have you noticed the area becoming more and more hollow with age? As you lose volume in the area, this can make dark circles appear around your eyes, which can not only make you look older, but unhealthy too.
This filler can safely be injected into the area to help fill in any lost volume. By doing this, you’ll reduce the appearance of dark circles and help your overall expression stay bright and alert.
These lines are the frustrating ones that appear between your nose and your mouth. Because your mouth moves around so much throughout the day, it’s common for these wrinkles to be some of the first to appear on your face as you age.
Some people see their smile lines as signs that they’ve laughed and smiled a lot throughout their lives, but for others, their appearance can be a hit to their confidence. If you don’t like the way your smile lines make you look, you’ll want to consider getting this injectable to fill in the area and smooth out your wrinkles.
The older you get, the thinner your face will start to look. While you may remember having round, full cheeks in your youth, they may now appear very thin, aging your appearance considerably.
This is a natural part of aging, but if you don’t like how gaunt your thin cheeks make you appear, it’s time to consider getting this treatment. The product can easily put volume into your cheeks, making them appear as plump and round as they did when you were young.
Is your jawline looking less defined than it used to? Are you noticing things like the appearance of jowls? Loose skin along your jawline can seriously impact your appearance in a way you probably don’t appreciate.
This injectable, when applied to your cheeks, can lift this sagging skin and eliminate the appearance of jowls that may have been forming. An added benefit to this is that you’ll have a much smoother and more defined jawline.
If your lips are starting to look thinner or you’ve simply always had thin lips and you’re looking for a solution, this filler can help. Once injected, it will get your lips look full and youthful again.
An added benefit to this is that if you have any lipstick lines which are the vertical lines that appear on your lips as you lose elasticity and volume, this filler will reduce the appearance of these lines for healthy-looking lips.
What Will the Treatment Process Be Like?
There isn’t much you’ll need to do before getting your treatment. We’ll sit down with you for a consultation during which we’ll talk about your concerns and goals and answer any questions that you may have. We’ll also provide you with instructions on how you need to prepare to receive the injections.
All you’ll need to do is stay away from certain substances like alcohol and tobacco for at least 24 hours before your appointment. That’s because these substances can thin out your blood and cause bruising where you get the injections.
Getting this Restylane treatment is fast and easy, which is in large part why so many patients and doctors love it. When you arrive at our clinic, we’ll begin by cleaning the areas where you’re getting the injections. We can also apply a topical numbing cream to the areas if you’re worried about pain.
The injections themselves will be pain-free as they’re applied. You’ll only feel a small pinch. We’ll inject small amounts at a time in strategic locations so we can ensure that you get exactly the results you’re looking for. Your treatment will likely take under an hour to complete.
Unlike more invasive options like surgical procedures, the recovery process for this dermal filler is low-maintenance and easy. You can leave and get back to your regular life as soon as your treatment is done as long as you remember a few basic things.
You will need to be mindful about staying out of direct sunlight for the next week or so since your skill will be more sensitive and can burn easily. You should also stop doing any strenuous physical activity and remember to maintain a regular skincare routine.
What Are the Benefits of Restylane?
Some people may be looking for short-term results, especially if they’re not sure if they’ll like the way that treatment makes them look. But if you’re looking for something that’s going to last, this dermal filler is the perfect option.
Most people enjoy their results for anywhere between 6 to 18 months. The exact amount of time your results will last depends on what formula you get, where you get the injections, and how well you care for your skin afterward. Maintaining an overall healthy lifestyle will help your results last as long as possible.
Results Look Natural
Have you been worried about getting a cosmetic treatment because you’re concerned that your results won’t look natural? You may have heard horror stories about people looking plasticky after their treatments. But when you get this treatment from a certified practitioner, like the ones at our clinic, you don’t need to worry about this.
We’ll customize your treatment plan to look exactly the way you want it to. Whether you just want some minor enhancements to your face or you’re looking for a much more drastic change, we’ll give you the natural-looking results you want.
Anyone Can Be a Candidate
Because this treatment uses an ingredient that you can find naturally present in your skin, it’s safe for almost anyone to get. If you have any skin conditions like sunburns or eczema in the areas you want to be treated, or you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you should avoid this treatment for now.
But if you’re unhappy with the way aging has affected your appearance and you’re looking for a way to treat any of the concerns listed above and rejuvenate your appearance, then you could be a perfect candidate.
