As you get older, it’s normal to see changes in your skin. You may notice that it’s more wrinkled than it used to be and that it’s beginning to sag. But these are changes you don’t have to put up with forever. At the Southeastern Institute of Restorative Medicine in Dothan, AL, our Restylane treatments can help you feel your best again.
How Long Does Restylane Last After Injection?
If aging has changed the way that your skin looks and you’re not happy with it, you’re not alone. Aging-related concerns like sagging and wrinkling can cause a lot of distress, and you may begin feeling more and more uncomfortable with the way you look.
If you’re looking for a solution to common skin concerns like wrinkling and sagging, then Restylane injections might be right for you. This line of dermal fillers can provide you with safe and long-lasting results that you’ll love. Depending on the type that you receive, you can expect your results to last anywhere from 6 to 18 months.
What Is Restylane?
This is a lineup of hyaluronic acid-based fillers that are designed to target different parts of the face and offer anti-aging results. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is an important part of your skin. It helps to keep skin hydrated by combining with moisture molecules, and it provides fullness.
All products in this lineup will inject hyaluronic acid back into your skin. This will fill in the areas where you may have lost volume, smoothing out skin and keeping it free of wrinkles for a youthful, healthy, and glowing appearance.
What Are the Different Types?
There are a few different types of this dermal filler, and the kind you receive will depend on the areas you’d like targeted and the results that you’d like to see. During your treatment, you might receive one or more types of this filler to help you achieve your desired look.
This is the filler’s original formula. When you receive this one, you can expect a variety of different results. It can be used to target wrinkling and folding on your face, as well as add more definition to your lips.
You may have also noticed that aging has caused some changes to the skin around your eyes. The skin in this area tends to be quite a bit thinner than on the rest of your face. If you’re not happy with the hollowness this has caused, then the original formula can put the volume back into the area and make your eyes look bright, more youthful, and more alert.
One of the common causes of wrinkles is a combination of volume loss and repeated facial movements in certain areas of your face. That’s why nasolabial folds, or laugh lines, are very common to see as you get older.
These lines can age your appearance significantly. If you’d like an effective solution to your nasolabial folds, the Refyne is a great option.
Like Refyne, Defyne is made to target those nasolabial folds that may be aging your appearance. However, these folds can vary in severity, which is why there are two different formulas targeting them.
If you have fairly shallow nasolabial folds, then you’ll want to go with the Refyne formula. However, if your folds are a little deeper, the Defyne formula will offer you a more effective solution.
While volume loss does occur all over the face, one of the places where you’ll notice it most prominently is in your cheeks. As you begin to lose this volume, you’ll probably also notice your skin sagging and jowls forming. The Lyft formula can put the volume back into your cheeks, lifting sagging skin and helping your skin stay taut and young-looking.
But your face isn’t the only thing Lyft can target. Another often overlooked area where signs of aging can be very prominent is the hands. This is due in part to repeated muscle moments as you go about your day using your hands, and a loss of volume. Lyft can put that volume back into your hands, smoothing out the skin and helping your hands to look younger.
If you’re not happy with the way aging has affected your lips by thinning them out or if you naturally have thin lips, Silk can provide you with an effective solution. The way your lips look can drastically affect your appearance. If you want natural-looking, full lips, then Silk can help.
Silk will help to put volume into thin lips, making them appear plumper. It can also be helpful if you’re looking to even out asymmetrical lips or to add more definition to undefined lips.
Who Should Get Restylane?
Are you wondering if you might be a candidate for this treatment? If you have any of the above concerns and you’re in good overall health, then you could be a great candidate for this treatment.
This dermal filler can also provide several other benefits. If you’re looking for any of the following, then you’ll want to consider opting for this treatment.
You Want Fast Results
Not only does this treatment last a long time, but you can also expect to see results quickly. As soon as it’s injected, the product fills in the area underneath your skin. This means that you’ll see a difference in the way you look as soon as your treatment is complete.
These results will become even more apparent over the following days, and most people can maintain them for anywhere between 6 to 18 months.
You Want Results To Look Natural
Many people considering dermal fillers ultimately avoid them because they’re worried the results won’t look natural. It can certainly be awkward answering questions from friends and family and the work you’ve had done.
But as long as you visit a clinic like ours where the doctors and technicians are highly trained and committed to your results, you can expect the injections to look completely natural.
You Want Something Non-Invasive
Surgical procedures are certainly an available option if you’re looking for a way to look younger. But they may not be the right call for everyone, especially if you don’t want to be bogged down by a lengthier recovery time.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, your skin will heal quickly after your injections, and the appointment itself will be very fast.
What Is Getting Treatment Like?
Before we can set you up with your appointment, we’ll need to sit down for a consultation. We’ll take this time to talk about your areas of concern and what results you’d like to see from your treatment.
We’ll also give you instructions on how you’ll need to prepare for your appointment. This will include avoiding certain over-the-counter medications like ibuprofen and aspirin that can make the blood thing. You should also avoid drinking alcohol and smoking tobacco in the days leading to your appointment
At our clinic, we’ll do everything we can to keep you safe and comfortable. Once you’re sitting down for your injections, we’ll begin by carefully cleaning the areas where you’ll receive your injections to remove any grime or oil buildup. We might also apply a small amount of numbing cream to the area to help keep your treatment process as comfortable as possible.
Once your skin is ready, we’ll start applying the injections. You may feel a slight pinch as we do so, but otherwise, the treatment is painless. You can also expect your appointment to be quick, with most appointments lasting under an hour depending on the number of injections necessary.
Since this treatment is non-invasive, you’ll be able to leave the clinic as soon as your appointment is done and get back to your daily life. However, if you want your results to be as effective as possible, there are a few instructions you’ll need to follow.
For the next few days, continue not drinking alcohol or smoking tobacco. You’ll also need to stay out of direct sunlight and don’t perform any activities that could cause a lot of sweating. To help your results last as long as possible, keep up with a good skincare routine and an overall healthy lifestyle.
