What Is Restylane?



Restylane is an FDA-approved line of injectable dermal filler products that can smooth facial wrinkles while adding “plumping” volume to your cheeks and even your lips. The result is a more youthful and attractive facial appearance.

How does it work?



Restylane is a “super hydrator” that attracts water to areas underneath even your deepest skin layers.

By placing that liquid reservoir beneath your skin, Restylane provides a foundation for increased collagen production and enhanced tissue repair. Restylane contains hyaluronic acid (HA), which clings to your skin, providing facial volume while drawing even more water to your skin.

Restylane contains more structure than other dermal fillers. As a result, it stays in place after injection, as opposed to other fillers that can move around and dissipate. That gives your doctor more options in designing a customized treatment plan designed just for you and your desired facial contours.

Selecting the Right Provider for Your Restylane Treatment

Restylane injections are safe and effective, but only when administered by a skilled, trained, and experienced medical professional.

At Murthy Facial Plastic Surgery, we get it right.

We’re good listeners. Tell us all about your goals and expectations so that we can design the perfect plan that uses just precisely the right Restylane products for you.

Preparation



Starting about two weeks before your treatment, you will be directed to suspend use of any supplement or drug—such as aspirin—that could promote bleeding or swelling.

Your Procedure



Restylane injections are performed in your doctor’s office. The procedure requires no incisions. To enhance your comfort, you will be given a topical anesthetic. Additionally, many Restylane products contain a small amount of lidocaine.

Your doctor will first clean your treatment sites with antiseptic and will then determine how much Restylane is needed. Your doctor will precisely inject Restylane under your skin into your selected areas.

Depending on the scope of your treatment, Restylane injections can take from a few minutes to a half-hour to complete

Recovery

Typically, you can go right back to work or school, although some people take a day to rest and recover.

Expect some redness, swelling, and bruising that will fully resolve in a week or less. Limit your sun exposure during this period.

Results



You will see some immediate results, but your full benefits will be noted within one week of your treatment. You are going to like what you see!

Restylane FAQs

Are Restylane injections painful?

No. Prior to your treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to your face. Restylane products also contain small amounts of a numbing agent as well.

Are there risks or side effects?

All procedures carry some degree of risks, in this case, including infection, allergic reactions, numbness, excessive scarring, and irregularities in the firmness of your skin.

Side effects are generally limited to temporary swelling, bruising, and redness at your injection sites.

How long do Restylane results last?

Restylane is considered a temporary procedure that needs to be repeated at regular intervals to optimize and extend results. Depending on the type of Restylane you receive, your results should last between six and 18 months.

What can I do to prolong my results?

Practice good facial care, avoid tobacco and excessive alcohol consumption, and practice diligent, daily use of a high-SPF (30 or higher) sunscreen

Will my insurance pay for my Restylane treatment?

No. Since Restylane is a cosmetic procedure, your insurance will not cover the costs.

Then what are the costs?

Pricing varies by quantity and location of the face treated. Call our office to schedule a consultation to discuss your overall aesthetic goals!
