Restylane® Can Refresh Your Appearance with Natural-Looking Results
Dr. Dustin Heringer offers Restylane® at our Scottsdale, AZ, practice to target facial wrinkles and refresh your appearance as part of our nonsurgical skin rejuvenation treatments. Like JUVÉDERM® XC, Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filleroffered at Arizona Ocular and Facial Plastic Surgery that is designed to combat the signs of aging by filling in deep lines and wrinkles, plumping facial tissue, and stimulating collagen production.
What is Restylane®?
Over time, skin will lose its natural contours and elasticity, causing it to appear thinner and less pliable, which will lead to wrinkles and creases. Factors that contribute to facial aging include genetics, exposure to elements, smoking, and even sleeping positions.
Restylane® is made from a safe and biocompatible material similar to other dermal fillers, and works by binding with water inside the body to add volume and smooth out facial skin. Restylane® can be used to fill out wrinkles, deep creases, and nasolabial folds, as well as plump up thin lips for a noninvasive lip augmentation. Laugh lines and fine lines around the mouth are especially suited to treatment with Restylane®. Results can last up to 18 months.
Before administering treatment, Dr. Heringer will spend one-on-one time with you to discuss your cosmetic goals and desired results.
Restylane® can target:
- Moderate to severe wrinkles
- Nasolabial facial folds (smile lines)
- Thin lips
- Flattened or sunken cheeks
- Perioral lines around the lips (“lipstick lines”)
The Restylane® Procedure
Before administering treatment, Dr. Heringer will spend one-on-one time with you to discuss your cosmetic goals and desired results. During your consultation, he will present all the available skin rejuvenation treatments available, such as chemical peels and laser skin resurfacing that would benefit you, as well as answer any questions or concerns you may have about the overall procedure.
Dr. Heringer will also review your medical history to ensure you are a good candidate for this procedure. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, struggle with hyperpigmentation, have a bleeding disorder, or have known allergic reactions should not undergo this procedure.
Once a treatment plan has been established, Dr. Heringer can administer same-day treatment or during a follow-up appointment. Because it is noninvasive and can be completed in just 30 minutes, many patients enjoy the convenience of stopping by on their lunch break or while running errands.
During the actual treatment, Dr. Heringer will apply a topical anesthetic over the targeted areas and then carefully insert Restylane® into facial tissues with a small needle. This treatment is a safe procedure with no downtime. Any swelling or bruising that occurs will generally subside in about a week. Depending on the location, results can be seen almost immediately and typically last six to 18 months before another treatment is needed.
