Do you wish to smooth out facial wrinkles or fine lines? Elite Medical Aesthetics in Rocklin, CA can help! Today you can receive a smoother, more youthful and contoured complexion with a treatment of Restylane.
Restylane is a safe, quick and effective option to restoring volume to the face and enhancing the lips, without the need for downtime or surgery! The results naturally enhance facial features, revealing a smoother complexion with a more youthful, contoured appearance.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a crystal, clear injectable gel, formulated from Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance within the human body which aids in volume and water retention. As an injectable containing a natural component, Restylane is biocompatible with the human body and will eventually break down naturally.
As we age, our levels of hyaluronic acid begin to naturally deplete, causing the skin to lose its elasticity, leading to the formation of facial wrinkles. In addition, factors such as the natural aging process, genetics and even facial expressions, play a vital role in the formation of facial folds and fine lines, such as laugh lines, which form from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth.
By injecting Restylane into the skin, we are able to restore volume and diminish the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, folds and fine lines. Restylane may also aide in lip augmentation, providing fullness and a more defined shape.
The restylane family of products provides alternative treatments to tailor to each individuals skin’s needs. The different products include:
- Restylane Silk: For the treatment of superficial lines around the lips, smoker lines and lip augmentation.
- Restylane L: For the treatment of wrinkles and furrow lines, as well as lip augmentation. Restylane L contains lidocaine, a local anesthetic.
The results of Restylane are long lasting, with some patients experiencing the effects of the results up to a year in duration. However, Restylane is not permanent and will eventually be naturally broken down by the body.
Restylane Correction at Rocklin
Although, over time, the body does naturally break down Restylane, patients are also given the option to have the filler removed immediately. This is viewed as an added bonus for individuals who wish to receive the effects of Restylane, while still having the option to reverse its effects, if they wish to do so.
Dr. Ray is an expert in both administering and removing Restylane, and has performed numerous corrections of prior filler injections, received at other centers.
What does Restylane treat?
Restylane is able to safely and effectively treat an array of skin concerns including:
- Facial wrinkles and folds
- Fine lines such as laugh lines
- Restore volume to the face
- Lip enhancement: for fuller, more accentuated lips
- Enhance facial volume and contour
What is the treatment like?
At Elite Medical Aesthetics, a Restylane treatment is quick and effective! The procedure may last up to 15 minutes, depending on the area being treated, with most patients reporting little to no pain. However, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the targeted area of concern 15 to 20 minutes prior to beginning injections, in order to ensure a more comfortable procedure. After the injections have been administered, Dr. Ray will gently massage the treated area. This ensures a better distribution of the product under the skin and reduces the chance of lumps forming. The results of a smoother, more youthful complexion are visible immediately after treatment and may last up to a year. Before and after photos will also be taken to provide for a better comparison of results.
Does Restylane have any side effects?
Post-treatment, it is common to notice some mild swelling, tenderness, redness, firmness and slight bruising around the treated area. However, these side effects should naturally diminish within two to three days and can be easily covered with makeup. There is no downtime involved with a Restylane treatment, allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, it is recommended for patients to avoid strenuous activities, such as exercise, the consumption of alcoholic beverages and certain pain medications, such as Aspirin and ibuprofen, for at least 24 hours post-treatment.
