Aging is a natural process, but there are plenty of side effects that come along with it that many consider undesirable. One of these side effects is changes to your skin. If you’re starting to notice fine lines and wrinkles on your face and your regular skincare routine simply isn’t enough anymore, then consider a dermal filler like Restylane. When you visit Ideal Face & Body in Beverly Hills, CA, we’ll help you get the smooth, supple appearance you’ve been waiting for.
How Long Does It Take to Get Results from Restylane?
Are you unhappy with the way your skin looks? Perhaps you’re concerned about the side effects of aging, which include things like thinning of the face, wrinkles, fine lines, and folds. If these sound like something you’d like to address, then you’ll want to look into Restylane.
This is a safe, effective injection that will help you eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and provide more volume to your face for a healthier, more youthful appearance. One of the best parts of getting this injection is that you’ll see results almost immediately. You’ll also appreciate how fast the treatment process itself is, along with the long-lasting results you’ll receive.
All About Restylane
If you’re considering getting this filler, then you’re probably wondering what exactly it is. This is a dermal filler, which means that it’s injected into the skin using a fine, precise needle. Once the product has been injected, you’ll see a smoothing out of wrinkles and fine lines.
Your skin will also look fuller, which means you’ll have a much younger appearance.
How Your Skin Changes
There are plenty of benefits to getting older, but one of the side effects is significant changes to the texture and appearance of your skin. Your skin is made up of proteins. Collagen and elastin are what provide your skin with its structure and allow it to stay elastic.
When you make facial expressions, the muscles move your skin around, causing creases. However, over time the amount of collagen and elastin in your skin begins to diminish and your skin stops being able to smooth out when your muscles are relaxed. That means that the creases stay creased and turn into wrinkles. Aging will also cause a loss of volume to your face.
What Restylane Does
If you’re looking to eliminate fine lines and wrinkles and fill out your face for a more youthful appearance, then this filler is a great option. It’s made with hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar. You’ll find it in various parts of the human body including the skin, eyes, and connective tissues.
When this filler is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid fills in areas of the face where volume has been lost. This results in a plumper appearance while also smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles in the area. Hyaluronic acid is also known to attract moisture, which keeps these areas of your face hydrated and helps you enjoy your results for longer.
What Concerns Can Be Treated?
This filler can target several areas of the face, resulting in a smoother appearance. At our clinic, our carefully trained technicians will strategically apply the injection depending on which areas you’re looking to treat. Here are a few issues you can target.
The loss of elastin and collagen in your skin will result in wrinkles appearing on various parts of the face. They can be exacerbated by prolonged and unprotected sun exposure as well as excessive drinking and smoking. You may begin to notice wrinkles on your skin in your late 20s, with them becoming more obvious in your 30s and 40s.
This filler will target static wrinkles, which are wrinkles that are visible on your face even when you’re not making any facial expressions. It will tighten and smooth out the skin, reducing or even eliminating the appearance of wrinkles.
Fine lines are often one of the first signs of aging to appear. Like wrinkles, they are a result of the loss of collagen and elastin. However, they differ from wrinkles in that while wrinkles are more deep-set, fine lines are shallower.
It’s most common to find fine lines around the eyes. They can also appear around other areas of the face and may become more pronounced as you make facial expressions.
As you get older, you may notice that deep folds begin to appear on your face. You’ll most commonly find folds around the mouth and nose area where there is a lot of muscle movement and where the skin is thicker.
Because the skin in this area is slightly thicker, other injectables may not be as effective. However, this filler has been proven to be very effective at treating folds.
Some people naturally have very thin lips. Others experience a thinning of the lips as a side effect of aging. Whatever the reason, fuller lips can make you look younger. This injectable helps fill in the lips, making them plumper and fuller.
It can also treat the areas around the lips, helping to get rid of lipstick lines or smoker’s lines which can make you look older.
What Does Treatment Look Like?
If you’re thinking of getting this injection, then you may be wondering what the process is like. Rest assured that when you visit our clinic, your treatment will be performed by professional and caring technicians who have been carefully trained and will be ready to answer your every question.
How to Prepare for Treatment
Unlike many other treatment options, there is no long to-do list involved with getting this filler. While you will need to avoid certain things, preparation for receiving this injection is minimal.
To prevent bruising from occurring, avoid taking medications like aspirin and ibuprofen for at least a week before you receive your treatment.
What Happens During Treatment?
When you come to our clinic for treatment, you can count on the process being safe, fast, and comfortable. First, we will sit down for a consultation with you. This consultation will help us determine and set your expectations and address the areas that you’d like treated.
Once your consultation is done, we can start planning your treatment. During the treatment process itself, we will begin by thoroughly cleaning the areas you’re looking to treat. This will remove any oils, dirt, or sweat. Once the area is clean, you may be given a small topical numbing cream to make the experience completely pain-free. With your skin cleaned and prepared, we can begin injecting the filler. You will receive multiple strategic injections with the use of a fine and precise needle.
What Happens After Treatment?
Injectables like this one require very little healing and downtime. Depending on how many injections you’ve received, you may be able to return to work immediately after your treatment is complete.
For Restylane to work effectively, you should avoid touching or pressing on the areas that have been treated for at least two weeks after you’ve received the injections. You should also avoid any strenuous activity and avoid putting on makeup for a day or two. Your skin should be completely healed after around 2 weeks.
There are almost innumerable benefits to getting this filler. When you come to our clinic, expect to receive this treatment in a clean and safe environment from thoroughly trained professionals.
It’s normal for your skin to change as you get older. But that doesn’t mean that you have to put up with it. Unfortunately, there are many treatment options available that are not as effective as they claim to be.
This filler, however, will offer you the youthful and healthy-looking results that you’re looking for. This is an extremely effective way to treat wrinkles, folds, fine lines, and make your face look fuller and younger.
With any type of treatment or procedure, safety is often one of the main concerns. This filler is completely safe to use and has been FDA-approved since 2003.
The ingredient hyaluronic acid is naturally found in the human body. Over time, the hyaluronic acid in the Restylane will be safely absorbed by your body, at which point you may opt to receive another injection.
If you’re getting a treatment like this one, then you should expect it to last a long time. This filler is carefully formulated to give you the long-lasting results that you’re looking for.
The length you can expect to maintain your results varies from person to person. However, most people find that their injections last between 6 to 18 months. If you take care to protect your skin from the sun and keep up with your regular skincare routine, then you’ll likely be able to maintain your results for a longer time.
There are some cosmetic treatments out there that can take a long time. Surgeries, for example, require hours, and there’s a significant amount of preparation and recovery time required with these options as well.
If you get this filler, you can expect your appointment to move quickly. Most sessions will only take between 15 to 45 minutes.
Surgical procedures can offer you a solution to your wrinkles and fine lines. But there are some pretty major downsides to these procedures. They are extremely invasive, which can result in a long healing time and a fair amount of pain and discomfort.
This filler offers a virtually pain-free experience. Because it’s non-invasive, there is a very fast healing time and you’ll be able to get back to your busy life almost immediately.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Are you at least 18 years old and looking to maintain a healthy, youthful appearance? You could be a great candidate for this treatment option. Most people begin to see wrinkles and fine lines begin to form around their late 20s and 30s. However, you can use this filler as a preventative treatment and maintain your youthful appearance even before the normal signs of aging start to show.
Whether your wrinkles, fine lines, or folds are relatively mild or fairly severe, this filler can help you look the way you feel inside.
