Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. Achieving the look you desire is as easy as it is quick. No previous skin test is needed. During treatment, Restylane is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle.
When injected into the skin, Restylane produces volume that smoothes the wrinkle or fold, shapes the facial contour or enhances the lips in a natural way. The result is immediate. The method of injecting Restylane is fast and safe.
Studies have shown that the average treatment results last up to six months or even longer.
Dr. Ali uses an ultra fine needle to precisely inject small amounts of Restylane in the areas needed. As with all injections, some patients may experience discomfort. Pain is subjective, and Dr. Ali may use a topical anesthetic to alleviate any discomfort you may have.
Restylane requires no pretesting, but you should take a few precautions before being treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John's Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements prior to treatment, because these may increase bruising or bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, discuss this with Dr. Ali, she can prescribe medication to minimize a recurrence.
Immediately after the treatment, you can expect a slight redness, swelling, tenderness and an itching sensation in the treated area. This is a normal result of the injection.The discomfort is temporary and generally disappears in a few days. When it comes to lip augmentation, the swelling may last longer. Some patients experience swelling for about a week.
