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.

What to expect during your consultation for Restylane

We’ll start by listening to your treatment goals, desires, and concerns. A thorough examination and medical history will help us determine the best course of treatment for your specific needs. We’ll answer all of your questions and explain Restylane carefully, so you know what to expect. Afterwards, you can set up an appointment that best fits your schedule.

A message from Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ:

Dear Patients,

Our providers and staff recognize that we are all faced with difficult times as this pandemic continues to unfold throughout our area. However, the continuation of your care remains our top priority!

At this time, our New York City office is temporarily closed.

In our effort to provide you with the highest level of service, the Hackensack and Hillsborough NJ offices will remain open until further notice with limited hours of availability. We ask for your understanding with our protocols on hand washing and social distancing when you arrive for your appointment. Please do not come to the office if you are experiencing a cough, fever, shortness of breath, or other symptoms associated with COVID-19.

Should you prefer not to visit the office in person, our providers are now offering virtual office visits. This is commonly known as telemedicine, or in this case, teledermatology. Our dedicated concierge team will assist you in scheduling a virtual appointment with your provider, including those in the New York City office.

Currently, the government mandates that the only way to have these virtual visits is to communicate via FaceTime, Skype, Zoom, or WhatsApp video. This is because your medical providers needs to see you, and you can show the provider the problem area of your body that you are concerned about. You will also be able to discuss any other issues regarding your ongoing care or for any new skin concerns you may have. Your provider may tell you that an in-person visit may be required for testing or more in-depth examination. In that case, a concierge team member will reach out to schedule an in-office visit.

To schedule your in-person or virtual appointment, please call our office at 908-359-8980 or email [email protected] Our concierge team members will schedule a time for your medical provider to call you back. We have set aside times for all of our medical providers to call you for your virtual appointment.

Please be aware that virtual visits must be billed to your medical health insurance just as they would for an in-person office visit. If your insurance has recently changed, please have that information ready to provide to our team members. Depending on your insurance plan, you may have financial obligations such as co-pays, deductibles, and co-insurance just as you would for an in-office visit (at the present time, the government has only waived co-pays related to COVID-19 testing).

We understand that this is a stressful time, but we are here for you!

Stay safe and healthy,

Dr. David Goldberg and the team at Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of NY & NJ
