Smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and noses.
As you age, the desire to improve your facial features may increase when your skin loses volume, in return diminishing some of your favorite characteristics. The aging process becomes bothersome when you notice wrinkles around the mouth and nose, also known as nasolabial folds, and frail lips. At our New York City office, Dr. Kestin offers treatments of Restylane to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips and noses, and improve other facial features by correcting age-related volume loss.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane is an injectable clear liquid gel of hyaluronic acid, a natural sugar compound found in your body. Once precisely injected through an ultrafine needle, Restylane instantly adds volume to the skin, smoothing wrinkles and enhancing the lip area. Although there may be a slight pinch from the injection, this discomfort is typically tolerable. Generally, patients only require one treatment session of Restylane and the results last at least six months before naturally expelling from the body. However, patients can see even longer-lasting results, up to 18 months, if they receive touch up treatments 4-9 months after their first treatment. An initial consultation with Dr. Kestin is necessary to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Right after your Restylane treatment, you may have some redness, pain, swelling, bruising or tenderness at the injection site(s) that is typically mild and may last about a week. Results are noticeable right after treatment, and will naturally fade over time.
If you want to correct volume loss due to the unavoidable effects of aging, Restylane injection treatments may be the answer you’ve been looking for. Call us today to schedule your appointment or complete the online contact form and we’ll reach out to you!
