The Ideal Candidate for Restylane
Anyone unhappy with their appearance, and looking to add volume to their features, may find great results with Restylane. It is safe for all skin types and ethnicities. The ideal candidate will be in good health, understand the Restylane process, and have realistic expectations for their results. During the Silkey Skin MD consultation, we will help each patient decide if the injectable is right for their situation.
The Restylane Consultation
Prior to scheduling any aesthetic procedure, Silkey Skin MD recommends a consultation appointment with one of our experienced and licensed medical professionals. During this time, a brief skin evaluation can be done, medical history reviewed, and any current medications discussed. The Restylane procedure will be explained, and patients can see before and after photos of patients. Once Restylane has been determined to be the correct product to meet the desired results, an individualized treatment plan will be established.
At Silkey Skin MD, a session with Restylane will take about 30-60 minutes to complete. Once the targeted areas of the face have been determined, Restylane will be administered with a very thin needle. Restylane contains Lidocaine, an anesthetic, so injections are not painful. If needed, however, a topical or local anesthetic can be used prior to treatment.
Patients are free to return to work, school, and all of their usual activities immediately after a Restylane treatment. It is important that patients do not manipulated or rub the treated area for the first 72 hours, as the injectable may be dispersed to surrounding tissues.
The Restylane Results
Minor redness and swelling are common after Restylane injections, although these will resolve over the first couple of days. Immediately after treatment, the benefits of Restylane will be apparent. Over the following weeks, as the swelling subsides and the body’s Collagen production is sparked, the results will continue to improve. The benefits from Restylane will last between six and nine months before beginning to fade. A repeat Restylane session can be used to maintain the beautiful benefits from treatment.
Rare Complications from Restylane
While Restylane is an extremely safe and effective dermal filler, there is always the chance for mild side effects. These may include redness, bruising, and mild swelling. When using an experienced provider, such as Silkey Skin MD, more serious complications from Restylane are rare. However, issues such as scarring, facial asymmetry, and nerve damage can occur. Silkey Skin MD is one of the country’s most experienced Restylane providers, and guarantees patients the safest procedure available today.
