What is Restylane?

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler designed to temporarily diminish fine lines around the mouth and nose. An extremely versatile treatment option, it’s used to smooth nasolabial folds, which span from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline. In addition, it can also be used to successfully correct sagging jowls, a recessive chin, hollow cheekbones and bags under the eyes.

How Does Restylane Work?

As we age, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components that keep it young and wrinkle-free, including hyaluronic acid. This loss causes the skin to develop permanent lines and wrinkles. With an active ingredient of hyaluronic acid, Restylane temporarily replenishes the skin’s lost supply, causing the tissue beneath the surface to swell. In this way, the injectable smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, restores lost volume and delivers a rejuvenated overall appearance.

What Can I Expect During Restylane Treatments?

During your initial consultation for Restylane in Manhattan Beach at Marcus Medical Spa, our highly trained and experienced experts will begin by carefully evaluating your facial anatomy and signs of aging as a whole. From there, we will compose a custom treatment plan designed to use the filler to smooth the fine lines and wrinkles that concern you most, while maintaining an extremely natural and organic appearance.

During the actual injections, we will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort, before administering the filler into the target areas with utter precision to achieve the exact look you desire. In general, you can expect the entire treatment to last approximately 30 minutes, with a follow-up session every six to twelve months.

Is There Any Downtime Associated With the Treatment?

After Restylane injections in Redondo Beach, some patients report tenderness, swelling, redness and pain in the treatment area, though these effects are usually mild and should fade within a week. Beyond that, there is very little downtime associated with Restylane, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities right away. With that said, you should avoid excessive heat and sunlight for the first 24 hours to ensure an optimal result.

Am I a Candidate for Restylane?

At Marcus Medical, we’re committed to personalized care, and we only administer fillers if it’s truly in the client’s best interest. As such, we determine candidacy for all of our treatments on an individual basis, following a thorough discussion of your cosmetic goals, concerns and desires. However, in general, most individuals are considered to be candidates for Restylane injections if they are at least 18 years of age and wish to reduce lines and wrinkles around the mouth and nose without undergoing an invasive surgical procedure.
