What Is Restylane Used for?

At Dundee Dermatology in West Dundee, IL, we help patients in the St. Charles, Geneva, Elgin, South Elgin, Carpentersville, West Dundee, Algonquin, Lake in the Hills, and Huntley areas reach their aging-related and cosmetic goals. One way we do that is by offering treatments with Restylane®, a popular and effective dermal filler that can help patients target aging and cosmetic concerns through quick and safe treatments and enjoy long-lasting results.

What Is Restylane® Used For?

Restylane® is a multi-tasking filler that can effectively treat two distinct areas of the face during the same appointment. We can use it for lip enhancement to help patients achieve fuller-looking lips, which benefits those who want more voluminous lips and those who want to restore the fullness that they have lost with the aging process. We can also use this filler to add volume to the lower and middle half of the face to correct aging-related imperfections.

Injections into this area can smooth moderate to more severe smile lines from the nose to the mouth, including nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lines at the corners of the mouth, and other types of smile lines. Patients can choose this filler to solve two concerns or treat one designated treatment area.

How Does It Work?

This filler is made with a hyaluronic acid-based gel formula that will smooth lines and wrinkles and add fullness to the injection area by plumping the skin. After your treatment, the filler will integrate within your skin’s structure to naturally smooth lines and promote fuller-looking lips for an extended period.

How Soon Will I See Results?

One of the benefits of dermal fillers is that they deliver immediate results, and Restylane® is no different. As soon as you’re treated with this filler, you’ll see immediate changes in your appearance. Your final results will be more evident within one week of your treatment as the filler settles below the skin’s surface.

How Long Will My Results Last?

This filler from the Restylane® collection is long-lasting. After initial injection and optimal treatment, results can last up to eighteen months. At that time, another treatment will be necessary to maintain your desired results.

Will It Make My Skin Look Better?

Fillers can improve and enhance your appearance in different ways, and while they will improve skin volume, they won’t give you healthier skin. We can help you improve your skin’s health and overall appearance by combining anti-aging treatments specifically designed to do so alongside your dermal filler treatments.

Will I Still Be Able To Express Myself Naturally?

This line of fillers is known for its ability to correct aging and cosmetic-related concerns while ensuring that patients preserve the integrity of their appearance and their ability to express themselves with normal expressions. Because of its flexible formula, this filler can naturally smooth lines and wrinkles and augment your lips without compromising your ability to move your lips or face.

What Happens During the Treatment?

Before your treatment, we will cleanse your skin and, depending on your preferences, may apply a topical numbing cream to the planned injection sites to promote your comfort.

Then, after cleansing your skin, we will administer the right amount of filler into your lips or below the skin’s surface around the mouth to address facial lines and wrinkles. Once your treatment is over, you’ll be able to go about your day as long as you adhere to the post-treatment care instructions that we will provide you at that time.

Is It Safe?

This filler provides a safe solution for treating lines and wrinkles and helping patients achieve their ideal lips. It is only temporary, so it’s not a forever solution, but you can rest assured that it’s safe and your body will tolerate the product well to enjoy both a safe treatment and long-lasting results.

Can It Be Combined With Other Treatments?

As needed, we can combine your injectable treatments with other aging injectables and treatments. During your consultation, we can address all of your concerns and design a comprehensive treatment plan for you.

Am I a Good Candidate?

As long as you are an adult who is not allergic to the ingredients in this filler, is not nursing or pregnant, and doesn’t have an infection in the planned treatment area, you may be a good candidate for Restylane®. Our initial consultation is designed to help you learn more about the filler and answer any questions you may have about the treatment and what type of results you can expect. We’ll also ask you some medical questions to ensure it’s a safe choice.
