Restylane: What is it?

Composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body, Restylane is skillfully injected into targeted areas to replenish lost volume, add subtle fullness, and create a more youthful and rejuvenated facial appearance. Dr. Klausner's precise technique ensures that Restylane treatments deliver natural-looking results with minimal downtime, helping patients achieve smoother, more youthful skin.

How Does Restylane Work?

Because filler restores volume and fullness to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Dr. Klausner uses long-lasting fillers like Restylane to perform nonsurgical procedures, including:

  • Blepharoplasty, or eyelid lift
  • Jowl lift
  • Facelift
  • Rhinoplasty or liquid rhinoplasty

Restylane injections cause no significant pain, swelling, or recovery time, and treatment typically takes about 30 minutes.

A topical numbing cream is applied before the procedure to ensure patients are comfortable during the injection. Small amounts of Restylane are injected into precise locations, and in most cases, you will be asked to give feedback so that you have control over your final look. The result is a soft, pliable, and plumped area that provides patients with a rejuvenated, youthful look. After 6-8 months, your body absorbs the filler, after which the injections can be repeated. This means the treated area can be adjusted to complement the changes in your face over time.

Restylane and Dermal Fillers: The Benefits

Plastic surgery is not always the answer for patients who want to improve mild to moderate signs of aging. Dermal fillers achieve many of the same results without incisions or downtime. Restylane is a popular option as it provides natural-looking results, and can be adjusted to fit each patient’s goals. Some benefits of Restylane include:

  • Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
  • Increased volume in the cheeks
  • Enhanced lip definition
  • Diminished under-eye hollows

What Can Be Expected After Receiving Restylane Injections?

Injectable dermal fillers are done as an in-office treatment session in a speedy procedure. Due to the use of anesthetic, the process is typically very tolerable and does not require downtime. You should expect minor swelling or bruising initially, but these symptoms should dissipate soon after treatment. Results can last from three months to a year, depending on the type of filler used and the injection placement. Touch-ups may be needed periodically to optimize and maintain your results.

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers are made of biocompatible materials that are generally safe for most people. However, there is always a risk of infection or other complications with any surgery. Dr. Klausner is a qualified and experienced professional who can minimize any risks associated with cosmetic injections. Our team will also provide aftercare instructions to help you heal quickly and effortlessly.

Is there anything I should avoid after dermal fillers?

You should avoid strenuous activity or exposure to excessive heat or sunlight for at least 24 hours after dermal filler treatment in New York. This will help minimize side effects like bruising and swelling. You should also avoid touching or pressing down on the injection site. We know it can be tempting, but it is essential to let the area heal properly.

Will my results appear natural?
