Restylane can be injected into the skin as a cosmetic dermal filler to help improve the appearance of skin. The first of its kind, this dermal filler is a clear gel which brings back a person’s youthful facial appearance by increasing skin volume. The key component of Restylane, Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid, is natural, biodegradable and already present in the human body.
How does this innovative dermal filler actually work to improve and revitalize the appearance of the skin?
Injected into the lip, wrinkle or skin fold, restylane works with the Hyaluronic Acid already present in the patient’s body. Creating skin volume, people who use restylane can look healthier and younger for up to 4 to 9 months, and the results happen practically right away.
What about the safety of this derma filler?
Restylane is very safe because Hyaluronic Acid is a natural component of the body. Skin does not experience adverse effects from injection of this dermal filler. More than 100,000 patients have tried this substance, and a few of them have had some redness, itching, tenderness and swelling. In particular, swelling and redness around the injected area is perfectly normal and disappears the day of the procedure or shortly thereafter. There are no long term side effects.
Do these treatments for wrinkles hurt?
Many patients say treatment with Restylane is virtually painless. Other people may react a bit to the prick of the needle as some patients are more sensitive to pain than others are. No anesthesia is required, however.
Additionally, some people are more sensitive to Restylane which is injected into the lips. These individuals may require a nerve block to help them with the discomfort. After the restylane procedure is complete, patients should place ice on the affected area for a quarter of an hour to control any swelling which may occur.
What are the costs of this derma filler procedure?
Restylane injections can cost the patient any where from $390 to $700 per treatment. Nationally, the average cost of the injections is around $500 per treatment.
