For a natural-looking increase in facial volume that helps to eliminate wrinkles and lines, patients may want to consider Restylane® treatments at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates. We welcome patients from Fairfax, Washington DC, Arlington and Annandale, VA and the nearby communities.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a line of dermal filler products that are composed of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance that is naturally found in the body, which helps provide hydration, volume, and elasticity to the skin. When injected into the skin with the Restylane® formula, patients can achieve a significant reduction in wrinkles and lines while gaining a youthful boost in volume. Each Restylane® product is carefully designed for a specific area of the face, such as the mouth, cheeks, and lips. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, we carry Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Defyne, and Restylane® Refyne.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
The cost of your Restylane® treatment at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors, including the product used and the amount needed to produce your desired results. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
What is Restylane® Silk?
Restylane® Silk is a Restylane® product that is specifically designed for lip augmentation. The Restylane® Silk formula is crafted with smaller particles to ensure results that are as smooth and as natural as possible. Restylane® Silk is a great solution for patients who are seeking subtle lip enhancement results.
What is Restylane® Lyft?
Restylane® Lyft is designed to correct age-related volume loss in the cheeks, and can also be used to reduce the appearance of deep facial lines and folds. Restylane® Lyft is also the only FDA-approved dermal filler treatment that can be used on both the face and the hands.
What is Restylane® Refyne?
Restylane® Refyne is designed to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds around the nose and mouth, including nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane® Refyne is crafted with XpresHAn™ technology to ensure that patients maintain their natural facial expressiveness after treatment.
What is Restylane® Defyne?
Restylane® Defyne is similar to Restylane® Refyne, except it is designed for deeper wrinkles and folds around the mouth. It offers all of the benefits of Restlyane® Refyne, but is better suited for patients who are experiencing more severe wrinkles and lines.
What is the Restylane® Treatment Like?
The Restylane® treatment begins with the application of a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. This helps to minimize any discomfort from the injection process. Additionally, some Restylane® products include lidocaine, a local numbing agent, which helps to further improve patient comfort. Next, the Restylane® formula will be injected into and around the desired treatment area. The injection process takes less than 30 minutes to perform, making the Restylane® treatment great for those with a busy lifestyle.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect After My Restylane® Treatment?
After your Restylane® treatment, you will notice results immediately. Patients often notice an increase of facial volume that contributes to a reduction in the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane® produces long-lasting results, with most products offering results that last a year or longer. However, the exact duration of your results will depend on the Restylane® product used.
Is There Downtime After Restylane®?
Restylane®, like many other injectable treatments, is a popular cosmetic solution because it requires absolutely no downtime. Patients are able to return to work and other normal activities immediately following their appointment. However, patients may experience mild bruising, swelling, or soreness in the treatment area that lasts for a few days.
