Restylane is a dermal filler injection recommended for patients who wish to minimize the appearance of wrinkles around the mouth and nose. In addition, Restylane can also be used for lip enhancement and the reduction of forehead lines. For safest, best results, Restylane is best administered by an oculoplastic surgeon, a specialist in cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the eyelids and face.
Delray Eye Associates, P.A. is proud to have Dr. Jan Kronish providing Restylane for our patients.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is a gel containing a natural substance called hyaluronic acid which is found in the human body. It is used to restore facial volume and fill in mild to moderate facial wrinkles, acne scars and other facial depressions. It also gives the skin a firm lift, resulting in a radiant and vital facial appearance. Like Juvederm, Restylane hydrates the skin, allowing for natural appearance-enhancing results. The results of Restylane are usually fully evident within a week following treatment and may last up to six months. Because Restylane is made of a naturally occurring substance, it is safely and gradually absorbed by the body.
Restylane is injected via a syringe just beneath the skin at one or more injection sites. The substance immediately adheres to the skin and attracts water to help induce and preserve the renewed facial volume. Prior to administering the injection, your surgeon may apply topical or local anesthesia at the injection sites in order to reduce any potential discomfort. The procedure generally lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, after which our patients are free to return home. Some patients may experience mild bruising and/or swelling of the treatment area, which should subside within a few hours.
