Restylane / Restylane Silk / Restylane Lyft Houston
The Restylane® line of hyaluronic acid fillers is used to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines (Restylane® & Restylane® Lyft®), create fuller and more accentuated lips (Restylane® Silk®), and add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane® Lyft®). All Restylane® products work to enhance facial features and give long lasting, yet non-permanent results.
Some facial lines and wrinkles form as a result of muscle activity, not loss of volume. If you have these types of wrinkles, Dr. Sato might recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic or Xeomin® injections in conjunction with the dermal filler.
Who is a good candidate for dermal filler injections?
Anyone looking to enhance their appearance by restoring volume to areas of the face that have lost volume over time (including stubborn wrinkles not fully eliminated with BOTOX® or Xeomin®) may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. During your consultation, Dr. Sato will evaluate your medical history and examine your skin to determine if Juvéderm® XC, Voluma™ XC, Radiesse®, Belotero Balance®, Restylane®, Restylane® Silk®, or Restylane® Lyft® is right for you.
What happens during dermal filler treatment?
Dermal filler injections take about 20 minutes to administer in the office. You may choose to apply a topical or injectable anesthetic to numb the treatment area and reduce the risk of any potential discomfort.
Using a very fine needle, Dr. Sato will place a series of tiny injections into the skin along the areas being treated. During and after the injections, Dr. Sato may gently massage the treated areas to uniformly distribute the dermal filler.
What can I expect while recovering from dermal filler treatment?
An ice pack can be applied for the first 24 hours to help decrease swelling and bruising. There is no down time and you can return to normal activities with virtually no restrictions immediately after the procedure.
The results of Restylane®, Restylane® Silk®, and Restylane® Lyft® injections are visible immediately and will continue to improve as swelling and bruising subside. Effects are expected to last 6-9 months.
Restylane® Lyft® results can last up to one year.
