Facial wrinkles and folds are a normal part of the aging process; however, these issues can leave many of us feeling self-conscious and unlike ourselves. Getting older doesn’t have to mean simply giving up on feeling good about the way you look. Dr. Deborah Farrell understands and uses Restylane® to restore facial volume and treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, so you can feel more youthful and more confident.
Why Consider Restylane®?
Restylane® is a great non-surgical option for men and women looking to treat common signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds (laugh lines) — the vertical lines extending from the corners of your mouth to the edges of your nose. Restylane® can also be used for non-surgical lip enhancement procedures and provides you with the benefits of a natural, more youthful appearance without any surgery or downtime. Restylane® combines lidocaine to reduce any discomfort felt during or after your treatment.
How Is Restylane® Performed?
Restylane® is a non-surgical, hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler that is administered via syringe (injection). Dr. Farrell will discuss the process with you during your consultation and listen closely to your concerns and goals, in order to design your own customized treatment plan.
During your treatment, Dr. Deborah Farrell will carefully administer the necessary amount of Restylane® filler to smooth away the visible folds and wrinkles from the surface of your skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® acts as your body’s own natural supply to restore volume beneath the skin.
What Is the Restylane® Recovery Process Like?
Most patients are able to continue their routines shortly after their Restylane® treatment with Dr. Farrell. Once your Restylane® treatment is complete, you may experience some mild bruising, swelling, or slight sensitivity at the injection sites. These should all fade within a week or so of your treatment.
When Will You Notice Your Restylane® Results?
Dermal fillers such as Restylane® often achieve instantaneous results. However, you will need to allow yourself some time for any bruising or swelling to dissipate before you realize your final results. The results of a Restylane® treatment are designed to last for up to 12 months, after which you may choose to undergo additional treatments to maintain your youthful appearance.
