Looking to restore your skin’s plump youthfulness? First OC Dermatology offers Restylane dermal fillers to help smooth out wrinkles and fine lines to turn back the hands of time.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a dermal filler which uses hyaluronic acid to help restore your skin’s natural fullness to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and folds caused by aging. As we get older, your skin naturally loses some of its elasticity and firmness as the production of collagen and elastin slows.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally occurring compound in the body that helps to keep your skin and joints flexible and healthy. Dermal fillers like Restylane use hyaluronic acid to draw in water molecules and fill in areas where wrinkles and fine lines have formed.

There’s little risk of adverse reaction to Restylane because your body already recognizes HA as a natural compound in the skin – unlike other fillers that may use synthetic ingredients to get the same results.

Restylane is a versatile cosmetic injectable that our specialists use to treat a number of skin issues including:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lip augmentation
  • Tear troughs
  • Jowls and jawline augmentation

How Long Do Restylane Injections Last?

Because Restylane’s primary ingredient is a hyaluronic acid, Restylane is naturally biodegradable and your results will lessen over time. Your results can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on a few factors, such as age, skin type, and area of treatment.

 Your First OC Dermatology provider will walk you through everything you need to know about what to expect following your Restylane injections, including how to optimize your results and maintain them as long as possible. We recommend follow up appointments every 6 months to keep your results look fresh and beautiful.

 If you decide for any reason you want to reverse your Restylane dermal filler, it can easily be dissolved in-office by one of our expert providers.

What are the Restylane Side Effects?

Restylane is a safe anti-aging alternative to other cosmetic procedures like face lifts. However, as with any injectable treatment for beauty enhancement, there are some potential side effects. These include:

  • Redness, swelling, or bruising
  • Tenderness or pain at the injection site
  • Itchiness
  • Hyperpigmentation at the injection site
  • Headache
  • Hardness or nodule formation

There is some risk of infection. In rare cases, you may also experience an allergic reaction to Restylane or an ingredient therein. Be sure to communicate any concerns you have about allergies and your known allergens to your provider before your injection appointment.
