The Restylane family of dermal fillers is among the many injectable treatments that have surged in popularity. Composed of hyaluronic acid, these products are very effective in treating facial wrinkles (nasolabial folds [laugh lines], vertical upper and lower lip wrinkles, depressions at the corners of the mouth, and wrinkles on the cheeks). They also work well in conjunction with BOTOX® Cosmetic and can be used to plump the lips and augment the cheeks with incredibly natural-looking results.
Below, we have provided specific details about each Restylane filler offered at our practice. If you would like any additional information, or if you are interested in Restylane injections, please feel free to reach out to our office online or by telephone today.
Restylane is designed to add fullness to the skin to smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Our Vero Beach plastic surgeon—John Michael Sarbak, MD—prefers Restylane for wrinkles that have been present for a while, because they believe it to have a firm quality that provides better structure. He also likes the way Restylane behaves when placed along the junction between the lower eyelids and the cheeks. Injections in this area can improve the tired appearance of your lower eyelids. On average, Restylane injections last approximately six months to a year.
What Are the Side Effects of Restylane® Injections?
The most common side effects associated with the Restylane family of fillers include minor bruising, redness, and/or swelling in the targeted area(s). If needed, these temporary symptoms can usually be concealed with makeup until fully resolved. Due to the minimally invasive nature of treatment, most patients experience little to no downtime and are able to resume normal daily routines right away.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
The cost of Restylane will depend on the specific Restylane product(s) utilized, where treatment is administered, and the quantity of injections needed to achieve an ideal result. After reviewing your unique needs and goals during a consultation, Dr. Sarbak can provide a personalized price quote for treatment.
