Restylane Dermal Filler Injections at Siti Med Spa in San Diego
The older you get, the faster time seems to fly by. While you might feel like you’re still in your twenties, the lines and wrinkles that have creased your face tell a different story. Wouldn’t it be nice if your reflection in the mirror matched how young and energetic you feel inside?
If you’re unhappy with how the aging process has changed the look and quality of your skin, you might turn to makeup to enhance your look. However, foundation settles into wrinkles throughout the day and can actually make them look more pronounced. And, it takes a steady hand and constant touchups to make your lips look full and lush. The key is to fill in deep lines and restore volume from within for a look that’s completely natural. If you’re searching for a long-lasting solution to a smoother complexion and plump lips, look no further than Restylane.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is an FDA-approved dermal filler that smoothes away facial wrinkles and folds, enhances the lips, adds volume to the cheeks and backs of the hands, and minimizes dark circles under the eyes. It’s made with hyaluronic acid – a substance that occurs naturally in the skin, especially in connective tissue.
Almost anyone can get Restylane injections to instantly fill in moderate to severe wrinkles and restore lost facial volume. Most patients see incredible results and feel more confident by the time they leave our office, and it just keeps getting better from there. The full results of Restylane become apparent a week or two after treatment.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane injections replace age-related volume loss in the cheeks, lips, and backs of the hands for gorgeous results that get better with time. The clear gel formula is made of hyaluronic acid, which clings to the surface of the skin and encourages water retention. The moisture drawn to the injection sites increases facial volume and smoothes lines and wrinkles for results that look dramatic, yet age-appropriate and natural.
Because Restylane is made from ingredients naturally found in the body, it’s completely biodegradable. The hyaluronic acid will be safely absorbed into the bloodstream over time.
1. What areas can Restylane treat?
There are several types of Restylane that can be used to treat different types of wrinkles, folds, and volume loss. All products in the Restylane line are made with hyaluronic acid, but each is formulated differently to address specific concerns. Siti Med Spa will advise you on the best products to use for your aesthetic goals at your consultation.
Restylane Silk is designed to provide lip enhancement
Restylane Lyft is for restoring cheek and mid-facial volume, and Restylane is designed for facial wrinkles and folds, lip augmentation, and to correct dark circles under the eyes
Restylane Refyne smoothes the wrinkles that occur from the nose to the corners of the mouth, called marionette lines
Restylane Defyne is also designed for use on wrinkles around the nose and mouth
2. What can I expect from a Restylane treatment?
Restylane injections are performed right in our office and can take anywhere from a few minutes up to an hour, depending on the treatment area. Your injector will first apply a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort at the injection sites. Then, he or she will gently clean the treatment area before injecting Restylane beneath the surface of your skin using an ultra-fine needle.
3. What is the recovery like?
The healing period is different for everyone, but you can expect a bit of redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects are minor and typically fade within a week. You’ll see results right away but the full effects of Restylane become apparent a week or two after treatment.
4. Are the results of Restylane injections permanent?
Restylane injections are not permanent. Depending on the type of Restylane you receive, your results will last between six and 18 months. Your injector will advise you on a touch-up treatment plan that will help you maintain your youthful glow.
