Restylane Injectable Fillers in New York
Restylane Family of Products
Aging skin loses natural support structures that keep skin supple and youthful. As time goes by, collagen and elastin diminish within the skin, and this can result in wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. As this and other support structures diminish and change (often a result of age and lifestyle), we can replace that lost volume with a hyaluronic acid filler such as those in the Restylane family of products.
The goal for any injectable filler procedure is simply to replace the volume that has been lost- restoring your own natural, youthful look. This will not change the way your face looks, moves, expresses or feels. We want you to look like YOU- just a little younger and more refreshed!
The Restylane suite of products are all formulated to act like your body’s own naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, restoring volume to your skin. Each product has its own unique variations and indications for different areas including:
- Lip enhancement
- Softening of nasolabial (“laugh lines”) and marionette folds
- Reducing perioral lines, commonly referred to as “smokers lines” around the lips
- Creating more mid-face and cheek definition for a more lifted appearance
- Filling under eye hollows/masking under eye bags
- Restoring a youthful appearance to hands
The products that make up the Restylane family of products include:
- Restylane Silk
- Restylane Lyft
- Restylane Refyne
- Restylane Defyne
Your Restylane Injection
A topical anesthetic cream can be applied to the areas to be treated for maximum comfort. Once the numbing cream is removed, the area(s) are thougrougly sterilized and then injected. Each syringe of filler is packaged for single patient use with a very thin, small needle. The injection process typically takes anywhere from 15-45 minutes depending on the areas to be injected and the number of syringes being utilized.
Most Restylane products also contain a numbing agent within the product itself, which in addition to the topical cream keep the patient very comfortable. Restylane products are made and manufactured in the USA, adhering to strict FDA guidelines regarding safety and efficacy.
Mild swelling is common after any injection and bruising is possible. Typically these side effects are not severe enough to interrupt a person’s day to day activities making this a true “lunchtime” procedure. Your clinician can advise you as to how you can minimize bruising and swelling post injections and may even advise you to avoid taking specific vitamins or supplements in advance of your injection to minimize these risks as well. If you do experience any bruising, patients can safely apply makeup following their injection to camouflage the proof that they had any injections done at all!
