Those inevitable wrinkles and folds that seem to creep in over the years. There are many factors that contribute to skin aging: stress, sun, genetics, and the loss of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity, and as we age, our bodies produce less, so our skin develops wrinkles and creases.
Restylane® is a clear, injectable synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid and is designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and shape facial contours. In minutes, you can have a freshly rejuvenated, more youthful look that lasts for months.
The most common areas for treatment are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth), and the lips.
Am I a Candidate for Restylane Treatments?
If you are over 18 years of age, not pregnant or breastfeeding, then you may be an excellent candidate for Restylane treatments.
There are those with certain allergies who should not receive restylane treatments. These are people who:
- Have experienced previous bad allergies, particularly to gram-positive bacteria
- Have previous bad allergies to drugs who have required in-hospital treatment
- These products should not be used by people with bleeding disorders
- Have a known allergy to lidocaine
Using a thin-needle syringe, Dr. Jejurikar injects Restylane in the area to be treated. The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes, and there is no recovery time.
