What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid based filler created to add volume under the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used for lip augmentation in patients 21 years and older. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies that provides fullness to the skin.
Who is a good candidate?
Patients who are unhappy with signs of aging such as smile lines, marionette lines, and lines on the corners of the mouth, as well as those who wish to add volume to their lips could benefit from Restylane®. Healthy, non-smoker who do not have a history of bleeding disorders, severe allergies, or are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo Restylane® injections.
What to expect with Restylane®
Following your injections, you can expect to see natural-looking results. There is no downtime required with Restylane®, so patients can resume their everyday activities following treatment. Mild swelling or bruising may occur at the injection site. Results commonly last up to six months or more. You may need to schedule a touch-up appointment to see optimal results.
A consultation with Dr. Barone is needed before your Restylane® treatment. If you are located in the Toledo area, contact us today to schedule a consultation.
