Restylane available to our clients in the Peterborough, Lindsay, Cobourg, Oshawa and Belleville region.
Restylane and facial fillers have become one of the most popular treatments among SKiN Laser Clinic’s patients. Injectable fillers such as Restylane, can plump thin lips, enhance hollow contours, soften facial creases and wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance. Many of SKiN Laser Clinic clients choose this remarkable non-surgical solution and embrace the rejuvenative effects.
What is Restylane?
Restylane and facial fillers are a clear, non-animal gel that is injected into the skin with a fine needle to restore skin contours and smooth lines. The main ingredient of Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a substance also naturally present in the human skin, with the ability to attract and bind to water molecules to help maintain volume.
What does Restylane treat?
As we age, soft tissue in the face may atrophy, resulting in a thinning of the skin and a loss of firmness, plumpness and elasticity. When Restylane’s clear gel is injected into the skin, the result is added volume – softening wrinkles and folds on the face. Increased volume can improve facial fullness and symmetry; enhance certain facial features, which may reduce certain signs of aging.
- Nasolabial folds (lines beside the nose going down to mouth)
- Marionette lines (lines below the mouth)
- Cheeks fullness
- Lip fullness/ border/ lines
- Chin augmentation (replace loss of volume)
- Tear trough (hollowing under eyes)
- Pre-jowl sulcus (jawline definition)
Your SKiN Laser Clinic Nurse injector or Dermatology assistant will carefully evaluate your facial contours and skin tone, and examine the areas of your face to be treated with Restylane facial fillers. Strategic points on your face may be marked/noted as guides to the appropriate injection sites. The injection sites may be iced or a topical numbing agent may be offered to make more sensitive patients comfortable. In some cases, Restylane will contain an anesthetic agent. In other cases local anesthetic may be administered to the treatment site. Injection takes only a few moments per site and up to an hour for a course of treatment.
Following injection, icing may be offered to alleviate any temporary, minor discomfort. Makeup may be carefully re-applied so long as care is taken not to apply pressure to the treatment area.
Amazing results are apparent immediately following your injection. Many Peterborough patients also find that their initial appearance after treatment with any filler may include:
- Temporary swelling or bruising
- Temporary numbing feeling
- Feel lumpy under the skin
These conditions can be alleviated with topical icing and will improve within a matter of hours or just a few days.
