What is Restylane? 

Restylane is the original non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid dermal filler. The Restylane Collection of Fillers –Restylane-L, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour, and Restylane Defyne provide instant results that last, and to date, there have been or 50 million treatments. The complimentary range of Restylane dermal fillers can be tailored to any individual to enhance and refine facial features. Hyaluronic acid is a native molecule that occurs naturally within our bodies. It is a polysaccharide, a kind of sugar molecule, which can bind huge amounts of water – 1,000 times its own weight. Hyaluronic acid therefore helps our bodies to retain water and keep our body tissues soft, hydrated, and flexible. These dermal fillers are smooth and come in. a variety of flexibilities and firmness to create the results that our patients expect and desire. 


Am I a good candidate for Restylane? 

You’re a good candidate for Restylane if you have fine lines and wrinkles and the desire to look younger. Dermal fillers work by “plumping” the skin, filling in the lines and wrinkles, and smoothing out the skin in the process. The number of injections required depends on your individual needs and the area you wish to treat. With so many filler products on the market, it’s difficult to know which option is best. Certain fillers work better for a particular area, so we recommend consulting an injection specialist about which treatment is right for you.


What can you expect during treatment? 

Since dermal fillers are non-surgical, treatment can usually be completed in an office visit. Depending on your provider, your initial treatment often begins with a consultation to determine your needs and desired outcomes. The injection specialist will review your medical history and discuss any concerns you may have prior to treatment. Although the risk associated with injectable fillers is relatively low, it’s important to disclose any allergies, medications, or neurological conditions you have to your provider. 

Before the actual treatment, the injection site is cleaned, and a topical anesthetic is applied to numb the area. Your specialist will then carefully inject the filler under the skin. You may notice results immediately, depending on the area. It’s not uncommon to experience mild bruising and swelling at the injection site. This usually lasts for about three to five days after treatment; however, the side effects will vary from patient to patient. 

Generally, dermal fillers last anywhere from 6 to 18 months but results depend on several variables, including the patient and the injection area. For example, the treatment for nasolabial folds (smile lines or folds that run from each side of the nose to the corners of the mouth) usually last longer than lip injections. 

Injectable dermal fillers offer a practical, cost-effective way to look younger. However, choosing the right injection specialist is key to receiving quality care and desirable outcomes. The trusted experts at Belladerm MedSpa will customize a treatment plan according to your needs and beauty goals. 


How does Restylane work? 

When people think of reversing the aging process and starting the journey to a smoother, younger-looking face, they often think of Botox or Dysport. While Botox and Dysport can smooth wrinkles and make you look years younger, dermal fillers can address issues that Botox and Dysport can’t. Let’s talk dermal fillers. Dermal fillers lift and smooth deep wrinkles and folds by adding volume to the face for a fresher look. 

As we age, natural collagen production decreases, making skin less elastic. Due to a lack of hyaluronic acid (HA) production, skin becomes drier, thinner, and less able to repair itself. Therefore, wrinkles and lines appear. The dermal filler injection procedure involves injecting gel that mimics your own naturally occurring HA through a tiny needle into the skin to add volume and freshness to the face. 


What are the Types of Restylane? 

There are several different types of Restylane the market today. Choosing the right one for you depends on the condition of the focus area and the desired results. It’s best to consult your skin care professional to decide on the best course of treatment for you. 


Restylane-L

For laugh lines and lips, Restylane-L is for mid-to deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane-L is also indicated for injection into the lips for patients over the age of 21. The use of Restylane-L is the ideal treatment for anyone seeking to restore the shape of lips and the appearance of laugh lines for a look that is natural and never “done”.


Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is a flexible and supportive formulation that has the ability to integrate with your tissue, so it becomes one with your lips, whether you’re negotiating business – or bedtime. Restylane Kysse is indicated for use in the lips and provides natural-looking volume, long-lasting results, and improved appearance of the indicated area. Results usually last up to 12 months, so you can keep telling your story beautifully. 


Restylane Contour

As we age and lose volume in the midface, we also lose definition in the cheeks. Restylane Contour is the only cheek filler with XpresHAn Technology that restores your natural contour, frees dynamic expression, and refreshes your look. Balancing the science and art of aesthetics, this unique hyaluronic acid gel creates natural-looking, subtly rejuvenated cheeks that are reminiscent of your younger self, but true to what makes you beautiful today. Treatment with Restylane Contour usually lasts up to 12 months. 


Restylane Defyne

Your unique facial expressions show the world what you think and how you feel, but over time, your skin loses volume and the lines around that pout or quirky grin don’t go away. That’s when it may be time for Restylane Defyne. Restylane Defyne is for mid-to-deep injection into the facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Have deeper laugh lines? Restylane Defyne provides flexibility and more support for deeper laugh lines. Your natural results can last up to 12 months. 


How long do Restylane results last? 

Results may last one year to two years, with optimal treatment and depending on the formula used. Correction is temporary; therefore, touch-up injections, as well as repeat injections, are usually needed to maintain optimal corrections. Of course, results may vary, and it is best to discuss your individual case with your injection specialist during your initial consultation.
