Restylane®

Restylane in Scottsdale

In the Scottsdale-Phoenix area, Dr. Todd Hobgood and his team offer Restylane injectable filler treatments. The goal of this filler is to boost the volume of the skin. It’s commonly used for individuals who have modest or strong folds or wrinkles on their faces. Many people use this filler to reduce the appearances of their nasolabial folds, which are also known as “laugh lines.” The nasolabial folds are the “parenthesis lines” that surround the mouth. This dermal filler has approval from the FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration). It consists of hyaluronic acid in a biodegradable form. This specific acid is natural and is seen the bodies of all organisms on this planet.

Although Restylane is commonly used to manage folds and wrinkles that are often indicative of the natural aging process, it also has another purpose. Some people get these fillers to increase the size of their lips. Restylane comes in transparent gel form.

There are many advantages associated with these fillers. They can help people minimize the appearance of folds and wrinkles that signify aging. If a person wishes to maintain a youthful, supple and line-free complexion, Restylane may be able to help significantly. These fillers can be particularly successful at reducing the appearance of lines that are located by the mouth, nose and eyes.

Restylane can also help people who aren’t unhappy with the shapes of their mouths. If an individual covets a mouth that’s more defined and sultry, these fillers can help accomplish that. Since Restylane helps people attain their desired looks, it can at the same time also help them improve their feelings of self-confidence. If a person feels self-conscious due to unhappiness caused by strong nasolabial folds or overly thin lips, for example, these fillers may be able to do a lot to improve his or her mood and well-being.

Restylane is also frequently respected for being a highly safe and dependable procedure. If an individual wants to look younger but not have to worry about dangerous side effects, Restylane may be a suitable choice.

These fillers are often convenient because the effects of the treatments last for longer periods of time the longer a person gets them. If a person gets Restylane on a routine basis, he or she may notice that the effects stick around for longer with each individual treatment. That can make keeping up with the results of the fillers a relatively simple and stress-free process.

People frequently rely on these fillers to take care of a wide assortment of skin concerns. Some people get these fillers to minimize the looks of their jowls, which are the lower sections of their cheeks. People occasionally feel self-conscious when they think that their jowls are sagging or “fat.” Restylane can also help do away with conspicuous depressions in the face. These depressions are typically triggered by the loss of fat, which is a common element of getting older in many people. Restylane can also be helpful for augmenting the chin, lifting the eyebrows and softening hollow areas that are located below the eyes. People commonly turn to these fillers to decrease the appearances of many different types of facial wrinkles. These wrinkles aren’t at all restricted to smile lines and also include smoker’s lines, marionette lines and crow’s feet by the eyes. If an individual is unhappy about the wrinkles that emerge by his eyes every time he smiles or makes an expression, he may want to consider getting Restylane.

Many people like the fact that these fillers’ effects often stay around for a very long time. Many people also like the fact that the fillers are temporary. If a person isn’t 100 percent happy with the results of his or her Restylane treatment, he/she doesn’t have to fret because the results will fade over time.

Restylane Procedure

The doctor will start Restylane treatments by choosing injection points. They will put antiseptic on designated areas. Once they do that, they determine the exact amount of the filler necessary. They follow that by injecting the filler directly under the skin. The acid inside of the filler attaches itself to the skin. It draws in H20, which, in turn, is beneficial for maintaining skin volume. People who get these fillers generally notice full results in a week or less.

Once an individual’s treatment is complete, he or she should refrain from touching any parts that were treated for a minimum of six hours. Contact could potentially lead to skin injuries. It’s also very important for people to refrain from being around strong levels of cold or heat soon after treatment. Some people experience subtle effects after treatment. These include tenderness, bruising, redness, swelling and pain. If an individual received Restylane for nasolabial folds, these effects should go away within seven days or so. If an individual received the fillers for his or her lips, the effects should usually go away in 18 days or less.

Restylane is suitable for people of both sexes. If you’re concerned about premature indications of the aging process, then Restylane may make an appropriate procedure for you. It’s important for people who get Restylane to know that its effects are temporary.

FAQ:

How Long Will the Procedure Last?

Restylane treatment sessions generally require no more than an hour. Some treatments may require more or less time.

What Can I Expect After the Procedure?

Although the full effects of these fillers can take upward of a week to be apparent, people typically see good changes practically instantly. These positive changes start to emerge in full force as the fillers soak up water.

If a person gets Restylane for the lips, he or she will generally require another session in roughly six months or so. If a person gets Restylane for the management of wrinkles and folds, on the other hand, he or she will generally need to get another session in anywhere between six and nine months. A lot of different things can influence how long the effects of Restylane may last in individuals. These things can include lifestyle, type of skin and age. Some people may also want additional treatments sooner than others. While one person may be content with slight loss of effects over time, another person may not be.

Are There Risks?

People who are concerned about the potential risks of Restylane should speak with their doctors about them beforehand. Some people develop feebleness of the muscles after getting these fillers. This weakness often goes away on its own in just several days. It can, however, sometimes linger for several months post-treatment. Allergic reactions are also sometimes possible. Individuals sometimes experience allergic reactions caused by bacterial protein components that are part of the gel. Animal-borne infections are also possible, although the chances of these happening are extremely slim. Lactating and pregnant women are advised against getting these dermal fillers.

How Soon Can I Return to Work?

Downtime isn’t at all necessary for individuals who receive these fillers. People can often go back to work immediately after getting Restylane. These fillers in many ways don’t affect individuals’ lifestyles at all. If a person gets these fillers, they generally shouldn’t stop him or her from engaging in any usual day-to-day activities.
