Ideal Candidates

Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has several formulas, the treatment plan will be personalized to meet your concerns and goals. Restylane may help you address initial signs of age, such as fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain treatments have the anesthetic lidocaine in the product, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Keyes to prevent a negative reaction.

Procedure Technique

Restylane treatments are performed in the office at Geoffrey R. Keyes, M.D., F.A.C.S. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if desired. The filler is injected in your skin with a fine needle, and then the area is massaged so the Restylane reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to reduce inflammation. Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume normal activities.

What to Expect

Your recovery period will vary based on what you are having treated, so ask Dr. Keyes about what you should expect in your consultation. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this typically fades away within a day. Bruising may occur, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments last around one year based on the formula selected.
