Restylane for Facial Lines

Restylane and Restylane Lyft are FDA-approved dermal fillers for facial lines. They are a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel. These gels consist of a natural substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement that is gentle and safe for your skin. Restylane may be used to augment the lips, fill in facial lines, or smooth and erase the appearance of dark circles under the eyes.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is an FDA-approved, clear, biodegradable, non-animal-based gel dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid, a natural substance. Because Restylane is non-animal based, a skin test is not needed before treatment. It may be used to treat facial lines and improve facial wrinkles, enhance the lips, and improve the appearance of dark circles beneath the eyes. Once Restylane is injected, it restores a more youthful appearance by creating volume and fullness in the face.

Restylane Silk in Austin, TX

Full, smooth lips are highly sought after as part of a youthful face. Unfortunately, many people suffer from a lack of volume in their lips from an early age and, even more, lose volume in their lips as a natural result of the aging process. What’s more, aging and environmental factors like smoking can also lead to fine lines, shapelessness, and vertical wrinkles around the mouth.

Despite the high demand for safe treatment for these issues, it wasn’t until recently that the FDA finally approved the first filler for use in and around the lips. Now, Americans can experience the natural-looking results of Restylane Silk, an ultrafine hyaluronic acid filler that can create smoother, plumper lips and smooth out fine lines and other imperfections around the mouth.

What Is Restylane Lyft?

Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved dermal filler able to soften facial lines and wrinkles by restoring lost volume and fullness. Restylane Lyft consists of a natural substance known as hyaluronic acid. This crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel has no risk of allergy and does not require skin testing before treatment. Restylane Lyft treatments can give facial skin a more youthful and smoother appearance. Restylane Lyft has also been used to treat facial scars and skin depressions and to augment or enhance the lips.

How Does Restylane Work?

The active ingredient in Restylane products is hyaluronic acid, which is suspended in a clear gel. As one of the fundamental building blocks that occurs naturally in the body, hyaluronic acid binds to moisture and is an integral part of repairing damage to skin cells and healing inflammation. When injected into the skin as part of a dermal filler, its moisture-binding properties allow it to plump up the skin for a full, healthy look. Restylane combines these natural properties of hyaluronic acid with a particularly small, smooth particle that creates the most natural-looking results.

Candidates for Restylane Fillers

If you think you may be a good candidate for Restylane injections, your next step will be a consultation.

During this private meeting, you’ll be able to review the problems that you wish to correct and the results that you’re hoping for.

After a brief examination, the provider will determine if Restylane can give you the outcome you’re hoping for. The provider carefully explains the procedure to you and any other treatments you may be interested in. Once you’ve decided on your treatment, you’ll be able to schedule the procedure.

Consultation

To determine if an individual is a viable candidate for this procedure, our providers recommend a private consultation. Providers at the Buckingham Center feel that successful rejuvenation treatment and plastic surgery stem from the development and maintenance of a good rapport between the patient, the provider, and the staff during their consultation and future appointments. The consultation will include a complete facial analysis to determine the best procedure to bring about the desired results, and all questions relating to the patient’s specific concerns will be addressed. Prospective patients are encouraged to call the office to schedule an appointment at their earliest convenience.

Selecting Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Restylane costs about the same as collagen injections, results at least 6 to 9 months, which is nearly twice as long as collagen, and does not require a skin test. For these reasons, the Buckingham Center’s nurse injectors are nearly exclusive to injecting these products for conditions previously treated with collagen. Nonetheless, there is one other dermal soft tissue filler our providers recommend: JUVÉDERM. There are several hyaluronic acid filler options; a complete description of these products is available on this website.

The area under my eyes is very hollow. Would it be possible to have a fat transfer in this area?

The disadvantage is that the survival is variable. If the survival is inadequate, a second fat transfer can be performed.

What does Restylane Silk treat?

As the only FDA-approved treatment for enhancing the lips, Restylane Silk naturally enhances lips that are thin from aging or genetics, creating a younger, plumper appearance. It’s also useful for correcting fine lines and wrinkling around the mouth.

What is the Restylane Silk procedure like?

Restylane Silk is administered in our comfortable, professional environment at the Buckingham Center for Facial Plastic Surgery in Austin, TX. Once you’ve arrived in the office, the procedure begins by carefully cleaning your face to remove any products or bacteria that could cause infections. Restylane Silk will then be carefully injected using an ultrafine needle to minimize discomfort and bruising. The entire procedure normally takes about half an hour.

Will it hurt?

Due to the tiny size of the needle used for the injections, most patients report minimal discomfort during their Restylane Silk treatment. However, if you are concerned or have very sensitive skin, you may request a numbing agent before the injections begin.

How long will recovery take?

Recovery from Restylane Silk is minimal. You’ll be able to return to your normal life immediately and even go back to work right after your appointment if you like. Normal hygiene activities such as washing your face can be resumed immediately, although you should avoid scrubbing hard for the first day or two.

What are the side effects?

Most patients experience nothing more than minor redness and slight swelling for a day or two after the treatment, although a few people also have a small amount of bruising at the injection sites.

Is Restylane Silk safe?

Yes, absolutely. Since it’s made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound, it will not cause negative effects inside the body, and any undesired cosmetic outcome can easily be dissolved by an injection of hyaluronidase. Like any injection, there is a small risk of infections or temporary numbness, but this is quite unusual.

Who is a candidate for Restylane Silk?
