What is Restylane?
Restylane is very similar to Juvederm (Coke versus Pepsi) and is an FDA-approved dermal filler for mid-depth implantation into the skin for the correction of moderate facial folds. Restylane improves your appearance by lifting and adding volume to the wrinkles and folds in the treatment area. Restylane is also indicated for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients over the age of 21.
Restylane is comprised of biotechnologically engineered, non-immunogenic, stabilized hyaluronic acid gel particles. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms and provides volume and fullness to the skin.
Restylane is formulated as a clear gel and uses a dual mechanism of action to correct moderate wrinkles and folds. Upon being injected beneath the skin’s surface, Restylane gel integrates into dermal tissue then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume. Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue. Results can be seen immediately following Restylane injections.
Arnica is to be taken the day before your appointment (take as recommended on the back of the bottle) and the morning of your appointment, we have found that there is much less bruising and swelling even with lip injections, thus a more favorable outcome with less down time! Arnica is a naturopathic anti-inflammatory that helps with swelling and bruising. You will also need to make sure you are not currently taking antibiotics and have been off of them for 10 days prior and are not taking any Ibuprofen product or blood thinners, do not stop taking any medications without consulting your Doctor first. Please make sure you are not currently pregnant or nursing and come in to your appointment with a clean face to eliminate any bacteria and the risk of infection. If you have currently received any dental work please wait 2 weeks before treatment and let our front desk team know if you are prone to cold sores or fever blisters prior to treatment. Children are also not allowed in our treatment rooms for safety of the child, patient and provider and children cannot be left un-monitored in the lobby during treatment. If you have any questions regarding these, please reach out to our front desk team.
