Restylane® is an effective method for improving the appearance of sunken areas, dark circles, and bags under the eyes, which can make you look tired, grumpy, or aged. Restylane® can help correct these unflattering issues by adding volume and firmness to areas in the face while also reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Thanks to the power of dermal fillers like Restylane®, patients can say goodbye to those bags.
Ideal candidates for the procedure may have a few concerns, including:
- Bags under the eyes
- A sunken or hollow appearance under the eyes
- Thinning facial skin
- Aging facial features
Candidates should be over 22 years of age and in good health at the time of receiving their injections.
Restylane® treatments are quite useful in providing a more youthful appearance with a minimally invasive technique. Anyone considering Restylane® should first seek a consultation with a reputable source of cosmetic enhancement, such as Hochstein Medspa. After a thorough interview and assessment, patients can be confident that Restylane® is the right choice for them and then proceed with one or more treatments.
How Does It Work?
Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a compound that forms naturally in our bodies to maintain moisture. An injection of Restylane® allows the skin to retain more moisture and look healthier.
The Day of the Procedure
Getting a Restylane® treatment is relatively simple and can be performed in a few simple office visits. The unique formula is injected into the treatment area and begins improving the aesthetics of the patient immediately. Treatment times are usually short but vary depending on the number of injections needed. Be sure to consult your Restylane® provider for a more thorough schedule.
Downtime is minimal with Restylane®, but patients can expect to experience a few mild side effects. It is possible to experience redness, swelling, bruising, itching, lump formation, and tenderness at the injection site. Any of these side effects should resolve in seven to 14 days. In rare circumstances of infection, some patients require a longer recovery time. Medspa staff will provide patients advice on how to protect their skin from the sun and care for their skin immediately after the procedure.
Restylane® restores insulating layers of the face by adding volume and hydration. Using hyaluronic acid fillers to improve cheek projection provides additional support to the area for an enhanced appearance. The sunken, dark areas under the eye will improve with time after the procedure, and a more youthful facial structure will show. The speed of the results often varies depending on the needs of the individual. Results can last for 18 months after a full treatment with Restylane®, and patients often report that they feel happier about the way that they look. The rejuvenating and aesthetically enhancing effects of Restylane® can have a positive influence on the way patients view themselves.
