Cosmetic Dermatology - Fillers
Treatment Restylane® typically takes less than one hour (individual treatment times may vary). Generally, there is little to no downtime associated with treatment using Restylane.
Talk to Khuu Dermatology staff about options to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure.
We will cleanse and prepare the area(s) to be treated.
The clear gel in Restylane products is injected into the treatment area(s) using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired aesthetic effect.
After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
Skin and Aging
It's a part of life—our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. How your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors including your lifestyle, diet, heredity, and personal habits.
What happens when we age?
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity
As we age, skin loses HA
As HA diminishes, skin loses volume, increasing chances for wrinkles and folds to appear
The good news is that you can do something about it. You can use products like Restylane® to reveal a younger-looking you.
Restylane is used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane is also the first and only FDA-approved dermal filler for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years. Restylane reduces lines around the mouth and can be used to reduce tear trough and reduce the sunken eye appearance.
