Restylane | Greenwich
For smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, and improving other facial features, Restylane injections are a growing favorite. Approved by the FDA in December 2003, Restylane can produce positive results on facial wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose. Another benefit is the long-lasting results, as the effects of Restylane treatments can last six months or more.
Restylane injections are typically administered to our clients aged 35 to 60. It is most often performed with local anesthesia, especially if the lip is being treated. The new generation of Restylane contains lidocaine thus our clients may experience little or no pain from the needle during injection. Depending upon the extent of the treatment, the procedure can take from a few minutes up to 30 minutes. Our clients return home shortly after the procedure.
Resylane results are fully evident within one week. Restylane has a success rate for reducing or eliminating deep wrinkles that cannot be accomplished with other procedures such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Post treatment swelling may be pronounced, lasting for two or three days. Normal activities can be resumed immediately, though clients are advised to stay out of the sun. Unmanageable pain, as well as symptoms that are progressive or abnormal, should be reported to the doctor immediately.
Restylane treatments reduce wrinkles by about 80 percent. Restylane is a temporary solution and follow-up treatments may be needed.
