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.
A session with Restylane typically will take less than 30 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 78 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.
