What is Restylane?

Moderate to severe wrinkles around your mouth can be difficult to treat. Most patients believe that surgery is necessary to correct the effects of aging in this area of the face. Restylane is a cosmetic filler that contains hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that adds volume to your skin. If you are experiencing mild signs of aging, Restylane may be the perfect alternative to surgery, allowing you to avail yourself of rejuvenating treatment with virtually no downtime.

What is Restylane made of?

Your body maintains healthy, youthful skin through a combination of hyaluronic acid, collagen and other substances. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane cosmetic injections adds volume to your skin and is effective for treating deeper lines and wrinkles around your mouth and nose.

What should patients do prior to treatment?

Based on your overall health and family medical history, your dermatologist may advise you of pre-treatment procedures. Certain over-the-counter medications and herbal supplements should be avoided prior to your Restylane cosmetic fillers. Certain skin conditions may also warrant delaying your Restylane treatments. Our offices will provide you with a comprehensive guide to ensure you are fully prepared for your NYC Restylane treatment.

What areas can be treated?

Restylane can be used on a number of areas on the face. We have successfully used Restylane to correct nasolabial folds, creases under the eyes, and lines around the mouth. We have also used Restylane to plump the lips and sharpen the lip border. Dr. Goldberg is a nationally recognized leader in the use of hyaluronic acid filler and would be happy to discuss with you the various ways in which Restylane can benefit you.

FAQ

Is Restylane safe?

Restylane was first used for cosmetic procedures in 1996 and is a proven cosmetic filler for the treatment of moderate to severe wrinkles. Restylane contains only all-natural ingredients that are normally produced by your body.

How long does Restylane last?

In most cases, the results of Restylane cosmetic injections in NYC last up to six months.

How often should I have Restylane treatments done?

The number of NJ Restylane treatments is determined during your consultation appointment. Most patients, however, have follow-up treatments every four to six months to maintain the improvements to their skin tone and texture.

Do the injections hurt?

Restylane is administered using a very small needle and most patients experience little to no discomfort during the injections. If you are especially sensitive to needle injections, speak with your provider about using a topical anesthesia to numb the treatment area.
