Restylane®, San Diego, CA

What is Restylane® and how does it work?

Restylane® is an FDA approved hyaluronic acid injectable, that instantly corrects facial wrinkles and folds and can last up to one year. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in your body that adds volume to facial tissue and restores a smoother appearance to the face.

What areas can be treated with Restylane®?

Restylane® is indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds- the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth aka smile lines or parentheses). Restylane® is also used in the lips, cheeks, and other areas of the face. Come in for a consultation to see where Restylane® would be appropriate for you.

What is the injection process of Restylane® and does it hurt?

Topical numbing cream is applied to your skin prior to injections, as well as, a local anesthetic that is mixed in with the Restylane® for a more comfortable treatment.

How much downtime can be expected with Restylane® injections?

There is virtually no downtime with Restylane®; however with any injection there is always a risk of some bruising and swelling immediately after the treatment.

How long does it take to see results?

Results from your treatment with Restylane® can be seen immediately and can last up to one year.

What is the difference between Restylane and Juvederm?

Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan, whereas Restylane is manufactured by Galderma. Both products are similar in results and improve volume loss and fill wrinkles. Come in and let one of our trained professionals decided which treatment is right for you.

How is Restylane® injectable gel different from BOTOX Cosmetic?

Restylane® injectable gel is hyaluronic acid dermal filler that provides volume and is used to treat wrinkles and folds resulting from a loss of volume beneath the surface of the skin. Restylane® restores your skin's volume for a smooth, natural look and feel. BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a volume filler. BOTOX® Cosmetic relaxes muscle activity and is used to treat moderate to severe lines caused by muscle movement instead of volume loss. Click here for more information about Botox.
