What are Restylane injections?

Restylane injections are a type of dermal filler specifically designed to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and add volume to your face. This treatment is ideal for static wrinkles, like those on the lower part of your face. These can include wrinkles such as smile lines and marionette lines around the mouth. These wrinkles are caused by the reduction of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid within your skin. You can also be at risk for these facial wrinkles due to external factors, like smoking, UV exposure, and lifestyle habits. If you think Restylane injections may be right for you, contact Fine Arts Skin & Laser Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dover, OH to learn how Dr. Hartman can help you today.

How do Restylane injections work?

Restylane injections are done on an outpatient basis, and the entire process usually takes less than an hour. To start the procedure, the Restylane is injected into your treatment areas with a small needle or cannula. Then, the Restylane will bind to the water within your skin to help retain water and help produce volume. This helps to fill in facial wrinkles and sunken areas of your face. Dr. Hartman may check to ensure your injections are distributed evenly by gently massaging the injection sites. This treatment is ideal for adults over 21 in good physical, mental, and emotional condition. You should also not be allergic to hyaluronic acid products. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have a bleeding disorder, skin disease, inflammatory condition, or an infection around your desired treatment site, you may not be a good candidate for this procedure.

Frequently asked questions?

What is recovery like after Restylane injections? You may have minor side effects for about a week after your procedure. These could include swelling, redness, and some bruising.

Do Restylane injections hurt? While there may be some minor discomfort during the injections, you can ask for a local anesthetic to reduce this feeling.

How long will my Restylane injections last? Restylane injections typically last up to a year and a half. However, you can also get maintenance treatments to extend the life of your injections.
