Has it started to feel like you cannot keep up with the natural aging process no matter what you do? Pesky imperfections are a natural part of life, and they can have a frustrating impact on your appearance. While it may feel like a surgical procedure is your only option for enhancing your appearance, injectable treatments like Restylane products can help minimize the appearance of signs of aging without the need for surgery or highly invasive measures. Explore injectable options and their potential benefits during a consultation with Dr. Diana Medina and her team at Luminous Health & Wellness in Humble, TX!
What Is Restylane?
Restylane® is an FDA-approved dermal filler used to provide the skin with subtle volume increases to smooth and reduce unwanted signs of aging. This filler is made of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA). HA occurs naturally within the body to provide skin with moisture and structure, but production naturally decreases over time.
There are different types of this dermal filler, and they each can be used to treat specific concerns, such as:
- Facial folds
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Volume loss
This injectable treatment may also be used for non-surgical lip augmentation. A consultation with our team can help you better understand the benefits of each filler.
What Types Are Available?
Dr. Medina is pleased to offer the diverse collection of Restylane products. Each of these unique dermal fillers offers specific benefits, and a combination of them may help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Fillers available include:
- Restylane® – This filler can be used to minimize marionette lines and nasolabial folds as well as plump lips for non-surgical lip augmentation.
- Restylane® Defyne – This filler can be used to minimize deep laugh lines, marionette lines, and nasolabial folds.
- Restylane® Lyft – This diverse filler can be used for reducing volume loss in the cheeks and hands. Volume loss can be restored to the midfacial area, minimizing the appearance of moderate to severe smile lines and nasolabial folds.
- Restylane® Refyne – This filler can be used to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
- Restylane® Silk – This filler is all about the lips. Not only can it be used to enhance the size and shape of the lips, but it can also be used to reduce the appearance of lines around the mouth.
These injectable treatments are intended to be used to create natural-looking results, allowing you to continue to make your natural facial expressions while enjoying a refreshed and relaxed appearance.
What Could I Expect from a Treatment?
Restylane injections are administered in outpatient treatment sessions. Each treatment session is relatively short, but length of treatment will vary based on the areas treated and severity of concerns. There is no set downtime associated with treatment, but you may experience some tenderness or swelling in the treatment area.
Results will vary for each person and concern addressed as well as the specific type of injection treated. While some initial results may be enjoyed immediately after treatment, the best results gradually improve over time. Results may last for a few months to a year, but a series of treatments may be required to achieve and preserve the best results.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Restylane is a safe and effective choice for most healthy adults who are frustrated with pesky signs of aging. It may be especially appealing for those seeking a non-surgical alternative to more invasive anti-aging treatments.
A consultation with Dr. Medina and her team in Humble can help you determine if this is the best injectable treatment option for you. They can also help you select the specific member of the Restylane family right for you and develop a personalized treatment plan.
