Over time, wrinkles and fine lines appear gradually on our faces and make us look older than we are. For anyone dealing with unwelcome facial creases, Restylane® may be the answer. This non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment option has helped countless people reclaim more youthful looks and the confidence that comes with them. Here at Aesthetic Surgery & Dermatology of Cherry Creek, we encourage you to learn more about what this celebrated cosmetic treatment may be able to do for you.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane is a clear, injectable gel used in small doses to restore volume and structure in the skin. It can help rejuvenate the skin, reduce wrinkles, fill out the lips, and improve the contours of the face. It is similar to Juvederm in that it helps replace the natural loss of hyaluronic acid in the skin. Restylane is also created from non-animal ingredients, meaning there is no need for preliminary allergy testing.
Perlane is part of the Restylane collection. This treatment helps to volumize the skin and attenuate medium to deep skin folds and facial wrinkles. The only real difference is average gel particle size, which is larger in Perlane than in Restylane. Perlane is better suited for wrinkles requiring deeper injection. Dr. Stewart uses Perlane to volumize cheeks and to lift sagging areas.
How Does It Work?
Dr. Stewart personally performs Restylane treatment for each patient. If you are deemed eligible, you will be invited to your treatment session. Dr. Stewart will inject a carefully prepared dose into the area of concern, after which the serum’s natural-looking results should become visible almost immediately. Mild bruising may occur, but this will fade quickly. Results and last anywhere from six months to a year.
Is It Right for Me?
Anyone seeking a non-surgical way to volumize facial skin and diminish unwanted wrinkles may be a good candidate for Restylane. It is important to maintain realistic expectations in terms of what this treatment can accomplish, though a positive outlook is always helpful. The best way to determine whether you qualify is to come into our clinic for an official consultation.
