Restylane Treatments

In Warner Robins, Georgia

Restylane®  is a beauty-enhancing product suite of injectable fillers that boosts vitality and skin volume, reduces wrinkles and folds, and fills-in lines around the nose, mouth, and forehead.

Why Restylane?

Restylane is a temporary product that provides beauty-enhancing benefits for between six and eighteen months, depending on how strong the metabolism of the patient is. Anyone interested in a younger looking, wrinkle-free face should consider Restylane. 

Why Restylane?

Restylane is a temporary product that provides beauty-enhancing benefits for between six and eighteen months, depending on how strong the metabolism of the patient is. Anyone interested in a younger looking, wrinkle-free face should consider Restylane. 

Restylane is a clear gel that is injected and spreads out easily beneath the skin and fills in any problem areas, visibly reducing wrinkles, crags, creases and eye-bags, as well as plumping up the eyes, forehead and cheeks. 

The product functions because of hyaluronic acid, a hydrophilic molecule that draws water to the injection sites to fill in areas and restore youthful vigor and appearances. Hyaluronic acid is found everywhere in the skin naturally, and is metabolized by the body over time.

Restylane is responsible for less swelling in the injection sites than other comparable fillers, and it is especially potent when injected in the tear troughs beneath the eyes. Restylane can be injected in any part of the body that needs a quick boost to reduce wrinkles and age lines, from the cheeks and the lips to the bags beneath the eyes, and even the hands. 

Almost immediately after injection takes place, patients can start to see results. Approximately 30 minutes is the average wait time, and the treatments can subsist within the body for as long as eighteen months.

Getting a dermal filler injection like Restylane is a quick and relatively pain-free process. From when you consult with a trained medical professional to when the procedure is completed and you are walking out the door typically takes an hour or less. The consultation with a medical professional will involve questions about the problem areas you want to target, your goals and concerns, and discussions about any known allergies. Though the final decision is yours about which type of Restylane product to use, the well-trained staff administering the injection will recommend the best type of dermal filler for you to use given your stated goals.

The injection is administered using an ultrafine needle (sometimes called a microcannula) and the injections will be administered in very small amounts. The medical professional administering the injections will likely massage the skin around the injected location with gentle hands to smooth and spread out the Restylane effectively. They may inject multiple times to achieve the desired effect.

Because Restylane uses naturally occurring chemicals in the body to achieve this youth-enhancing effect, it is metabolized by the body and gradually (over the course of a year or longer). This is an important benefit, especially for patients who want to test out the effects of a dermal filler without committing to a more permanent option. 

Restylane typically is fused with a small amount of pain-reducing lidocaine to reduce discomfort. While no injection is painless, the ultrafine needle and the lidocaine make it one of the least painful ways to receive a dermal filler.

The side effects of the injection tend to be mild, and include redness, bruising and tenderness around the injection site, and brief swelling. An ice pack typically clears these up, and most side effects are gone within a week. 

Restylane Classic- The standard Restylane fills wrinkles and lines and enhances natural beauty, returning the skin to a more youthful appearance. It is also very potent when used to fill in eye-bags and when injected in the tear trough region beneath the eyes. The classic formula of Restylane contains lidocaine to numb the injection area and reduce discomfort. 

Restylane Silk- Restylane Silk is the finest version of the injectable gel, and is most often used in lips to smooth out the minute, hair-like lines around the mouth and eyes. The hyaluronic acid particles in Restylane Silk are smaller and more nimble than in other formulations of the product, allowing them to deal with subtle wrinkles and folds more effectively.

Restylane Lyft (Formerly Perlane)- This hearty filler adds volume to the cheeks, hands, and forehead. It can also be applied to the nose for a nonsurgical nose job. It sports a larger than normal particle size, making it more durable and effective over time. Like other versions of Restylane, it includes pain-numbing lidocaine.

Restylane Kysse- Approved by the Food and Drug Administration for application in and around the lips, nose, and mouth. Kysse can treat nasolabial lines and creases in the lips called smoker’s lines, improve the texture and color of the lips, and smooth out the thin wrinkles that sometimes appear above the mouth.

Restylane Refyne/ Defyne- These two complementary fillers are used in areas that receive a lot of movement, like laugh lines in the cheeks and creases between mouth and chin, and they also excel at filling very deep wrinkles, creases, folds, and facial crags.

Restylane Contour- This filler is approved by the FDA to contour and augment the cheeks and the areas around the zygomatic facial bones. 

Dermal fillers provide nearly instant results, and their visible effect can last between four and eighteen months, with the common average being around a year. However, it is recommended by most medical professionals to give the product at least two weeks to settle into the skin before calling to report any problems with swelling, bruising, or other side-effects.

The longevity of the injection is directly related to the metabolism of the patient and the area that recieved the injection. Areas of infrequent movement where skin is thin, like the area beneath the eye sockets tends to last longest, while fillers injected in the lips and around the cheeks are reabsorbed by the body more quickly. As a quick reference: lip injections last an average of four months, smile line and cheek injections last around six, and eye-bag hollow injections last around eight months.

Board-certified aesthetic physician Dr. Anayo Umerah provides a wide range of filler injections to help correct signs of facial aging, lost volume, as well as lines and wrinkles. Restylane is one of the most popular brands of injectable dermal fillers since it treats several issues with different formulas for results that are long-lasting. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the complexion a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A custom dermal filler plan can correct mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, and add fullness to the lips and mid-face.

Restylane treatments are performed in one of our private procedure rooms at Ageless Aesthetics. A numbing cream may be applied to increase your comfort during the procedure if desired. Restylane is injected into your skin with a very fine needle and is then gently massaged into the selected areas. Multiple injections may be performed to get your desired look and are followed by a cold compress to help control inflammation. When your Restylane treatment is complete, you may get back to your normal everyday routine. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what is being treated so Dr. Umerah can help you understand what you should expect. The injection areas will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may occur, but this can be camouflaged with makeup. We suggest you avoid strenuous activities for a day, and you should sleep upright for at least the first night. You may experience some changes immediately, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks before your final results develop. Restylane treatments often last around one year.

How much does Restylane cost?

Costs for Restylane treatments will be based on many things, like which product is selected, where it is used, the amount of filler used, and more. In your consultation, your injector will need to understand your areas of concern before developing a personalized injection plan. After this, costs can be estimated, and we can review payment options.

What are the most common uses for Restylane?

Restylane has many products that are each formulated to make you appear renewed but still natural. In your initial consultation, your injector will explain the various formulas and which fits your needs. Restylane Lyft, Refyne, and Defyne improve mild to deep lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane Lyft and Silk add volume to your hands, cheeks, and lips.

How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?

Typically, Restylane results can last between 6 – 18 months. Your results will vary depending on which Restylane formula is used, the injection sites, and other factors. During your initial consultation, your injector will make your treatment plan, including how often you should make your next appointment to refresh your appearance.

Do Restylane injections hurt?

You may feel some minor discomfort during the procedure. Prior to your treatment, we can apply a numbing ointment to help decrease any discomfort that you may feel during the injections. After your injections, we will apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and bruising.

Will I look fake after Restylane?

Dermal fillers, when performed by a skilled practitioner, deliver a gorgeous outcome. The goal is to achieve a result that looks natural. At Ageless Aesthetics, we pride ourselves on offering effective injections that can help you look naturally youthful and refreshed.
