What is Restylane?

First approved by the FDA in 2003, Restylane is a clear gel injectable that is specifically designed to act like the body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid and produce the same effects. It is able to visibly correct moderate to severe lines and folds in the face, such as the lines that run from the nose down to the mouth corners (nasolabial folds) and the lines that go from the mouth corners out toward the chin (marionette lines). While it was only approved in the USA roughly two decades ago, it has been in use in Europe since 1996. 

What are the Benefits of Restylane?

  • Versatility (can treat a wide range of issues)
  • Results show up instantly
  • Results last for months, meaning that touch-up treatments can be less frequent
  • A comfortable procedure
  • A highly customizable procedure that can meet a wide range of needs
  • A safe procedure
  • Minimal preparation is needed leading up to the treatment

Who is a Candidate for Restylane?

Restylane is considered to be a safe and effective treatment for patients of various ages who are dealing with various cosmetic issues. To be considered an ideal candidate for Restylane, patients should be at least 21 years of age. 

Many patients in their 20s and 30s seek out Restylane, as they are dealing with early signs of aging and want to nip them in the bud before they take root. That said, Restylane is also an effective treatment for older patients whose aging signs have progressed a bit further. 

Patients within the correct age range who are dealing with fine lines, volume loss, or thin lips can all benefit from Restylane in Newport Beach. As with any cosmetic treatment, ideal candidates will be in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. 

What are the Different Types of Restylane Offered?

What Does the Procedure Entail?

Restylane is a considerably simple cosmetic treatment that is carried out in the comfort of our office and involves no stitches. We usually administer a local anesthetic to ensure that the patient is comfortable throughout the treatment. Depending on the extent of work needed, the Restylane procedure can take anywhere from a few minutes to half an hour. 

The procedure is performed in the following steps:

  • One or more injection sites are chosen in the areas targeted for treatment. These injection sites are then cleaned with an antiseptic.
  • The quantity of Restylane used is determined by the doctor based on the extent and type of changes desired.
  • An ultrafine needle is used to inject the Restylane gel into the treatment sites in a gentle manner

What is the Recovery Process Like? 

Patients who receive Restylane in Newport Beach can get back to their normal schedule and daily routine immediately following the treatment. As with any injectable cosmetic treatment, it is normal for patients to experience some mild bruising and swelling, but these effects usually go away by the next day. 

Overall it can take about five to seven days for the filler to ‘settle’ in the skin. Once this happens, patients will experience a major boost in confidence thanks to their new facial aesthetic.
