What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler. Although the body produces hyaluronic acid, it decreases over time. That can leave you with hollow cheeks, thin lips, and facial folds as you age.
Restylane adds volume to the face in the specific areas where it’s needed. It integrates smoothly into the face, creating an instant change that lasts for months.
Which areas are best for Restylane injections?
Ana J. Varela, ARNP, MSN often recommends Restylane injections for the cheeks, along with a few other areas:
- The nasolabial folds: the lines on each side of the lower nose and lips
- The lips: Restylane can also plump lips if you’re unhappy with their appearance
- The tear troughs below the eyes
How long does Restylane last?
The standard Restylane formula lasts for 6-9 months, but it varies from one patient to the next. Longevity depends on factors such as the area injected, the quantity used, and your activity level.
What is Restylane Lyft®?
Restylane Lyft is the Restylane formula designed specifically for mid-face contouring. Ana J. Varela, ARNP, MSN uses it in cheek augmentation, particularly in patients who have hollow looking cheeks due to aging or significant weight loss.
Restylane Lyft can last even longer than the standard Restylane formula: Up to 12 months for many patients.
What is Restylane Silk®?
Restylane Silk is the Restylane formula designed for use in and around the lips. It’s used to fill in small lines around the lips, create more defined lip borders, and to fill in thin lips.
Restylane Silk usually lasts for at least six months.
When does Restylane take effect?
Restylane takes effect right away, so you’ll see results before you even leave the Strax Rejuvenation office. However, you’ll often have some minor swelling for as long as two weeks so it may take some time for final results.
Is any downtime required after Restylane treatment?
No, Restylane treatment requires no downtime. While you’ll be able to return to your daily routine immediately if desired, you may have some minor side effects like swelling and bruising.
