Are you feeling self-conscious about the way you look? Are wrinkles, thinning of the face, and sagging making you feel less confident? At La Reve Skincare & Laser Center in Fort Worth, TX, we have the solution. Restylane is an FDA-approved filler that can help restore volume to your face, smooth out wrinkles, and provide you with effective, immediate, long-lasting results.
Does Restylane Work Right Away?
Your skin goes through a lot of changes throughout your life. It certainly doesn’t have the same texture or appearance as it did when you were a child, and it will only continue to change as you get older. But many of these changes, like wrinkles, folds, and sagging, can be undesirable.
If you’re looking for a way to look younger, there are many treatment options available. Topical creams, surgical options, and fillers are all ways to achieve the results you’re looking for. However, if you’re looking for a fast-acting and non-invasive treatment option, then make sure you check out Restylane. This injectable will offer you immediate results so you can look and feel younger as soon as you leave the clinic.
What You Need to Know about Restylane
If you’re considering getting this treatment, then you’re probably wondering what exactly it is and how it works. We’ll answer all of your questions here.
What Is It?
This is an injectable treatment. That means that the product is applied using a very fine and precise needle. This makes it a great choice for anyone looking for an effective non-invasive treatment option.
One of the best things about getting this injectable is that you’ll see a change in your appearance immediately after treatment. As soon as you leave the clinic, you’ll notice your skin looks fuller and smoother. Within just a few weeks, you should see the full results of your treatment.
How Does It Work?
This injectable is made with an ingredient called hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that can be found naturally in the human body. You’ll find it already present in your skin, eyes, and connective tissues.
When the product is injected into the skin, it will provide fullness to areas that may have lost volume. One of the other benefits of hyaluronic acid is that it attracts water. This will help maintain the volume that’s been added to your skin, and keep it hydrated and healthy.
Why Do We Get Wrinkles?
It’s normal for your skin to change throughout your life. This is because your skin is made up of the proteins collagen and elastin. These proteins are what give your skin its structure as well as its volume.
However, as you get older, the amount of these proteins begins to diminish. Your skin is less able to smooth out after you make facial expressions, and you’ll begin to notice a loss of fullness in your face. Injecting Restylane into the skin will help you regain the volume you’ve lost, which will, in turn, smooth out wrinkles that may have begun to appear.
What Can It Target?
Several parts of the face can benefit from receiving this injection. When you receive this treatment, the injections will be strategically applied to various parts of the face to help you achieve the results you want.
One of the first places you’ll lose fullness in your face is your cheeks. As the volume in your cheeks diminishes, you’ll find that you look gaunter and older.
This injectable will help you regain the fullness that you’ve lost with age. By doing this, you’ll look younger, healthier, and you’ll find you have more definition in the cheekbone area.
The appearance of jowls is a major sign of skin aging. Unfortunately, it’s also one of the most unwanted. If you’re looking for a way to get rid of your jowls, then this treatment could be right for you.
When you get this injectable applied to the cheek area, it will help tighten the skin in the surrounding areas. This will help decrease or even eliminate the appearance of jowls.
As the collagen and elastin in your face reduce, your skin is less able to retain its smoothness when you relax your facial muscles. This is, in large part, what causes wrinkles on your face. These wrinkles can appear faster or be exacerbated by prolonged exposure to sunlight, a poor diet, and other external factors.
This injectable will help smooth out these wrinkles and works particularly well for nasolabial folds. These are deep-set folds that appear in the area between your nose and mouth.
As you age, you may find that you lose volume in your lips. Some people have naturally thin lips even during their youth. Whether your lips are thin because of a loss of collagen or because they’ve always looked that way, thin lips can make you look older and less agreeable.
This injectable is a great way to apply fullness to your lips. Plumper, larger lips will help you look younger and healthier.
What Is Treatment Like?
You may be wondering what it’s like to receive this injectable. When you visit our clinic, you’ll be able to trust that you’ll receive treatment in a clean and safe environment. Our technicians are highly trained and will help you feel welcomed and comfortable when you arrive.
Unlike many other treatments available, there is very little that you need to do to prepare to receive this treatment. You may, however, need to avoid a few things to make your treatment as effective as possible and to prevent bruising.
Medications that act as blood thinners should be avoided. You’ll want to try not to take aspirin, ibuprofen, and supplements like St. John’s wort and fish oil.
Before we apply the injection, we will set up a consultation with you. This is a really important part of the process. During this consultation, we’ll discuss what your concerns are and what areas you’d like to target. If you have any questions about the process, then this is a great opportunity for you to ask them.
Once the consultation is complete, we can begin the injections. We will begin by carefully cleaning the skin where the injections will be applied. Then, a topical anesthetic may be applied to make the process pain-free. Our technicians will then use multiple strategic injections to apply the product.
As soon as the treatment is complete, you will notice a difference in your skin. It will appear fuller and smoother immediately after the treatment is finished. Over the course of about a week or two, the full results will become apparent.
Because this treatment is non-invasive, you won’t need to worry about a lengthy recovery time as you would with a surgical option. You’ll be able to get back to work right away, making it the perfect option for anyone who wants effective results without worrying about recovery time.
Is It Safe?
When it comes to any type of treatment, safety is often one of the main concerns. Many potential issues come with certain treatment options, especially surgical options. The more invasive a treatment or procedure is the more risk that comes along with it.
But this injectable is entirely safe. It uses an ingredient that is naturally found in the human body anyway. As long as you have an otherwise clean bill of health and are not experiencing any skin infections or irritations, this non-invasive injectable is very safe. Before receiving this treatment, make sure you bring up any allergies or health issues you may have to ensure that this treatment is right for you.
How Long Does Treatment Take?
Many treatment options, especially surgical ones, can take a long time. There’s usually a lengthy preparation process, and the treatment itself is likely to take several hours.
If you want something that is both fast and effective, this injectable will work for you. While the amount of time you’ll need to spend at our clinic depends on the number of injections you’re receiving, you can expect the process to overall be very quick. Most people spend anywhere from a few minutes to around half an hour receiving the treatment.
How Long Does It Last?
Injectables make great options for those looking to get fast results that are effective and safe. However, no injectable can offer permanent results. If you want to maintain the results that you’ve received from your injections, then you’ll need to return for touch-up treatments. Some of these fillers may require you to come in more frequently than you’d like.
But one of the benefits of this injectable is that it will last you a long time. Most people find that their results last anywhere for 6 to 18 months. To help your injections last for a long time, make sure to keep up with an overall healthy lifestyle and your daily skincare routine.
What Is Recovery Like?
Depending on the treatment you’re receiving, you may need to factor in a recovery time. Surgical options especially will require a lot of downtime. This isn’t going to be convenient for everyone, especially those with busy work schedules.
This filler, on the other hand, requires virtually no recovery time. This makes it a fantastic option for those who need to get back to their lives as soon as possible. As long as you follow our instructions once you leave our clinic, you’ll be able to get back to work right away.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
This treatment is FDA-approved for anyone over the age of 21. If you are at least this age and are looking to retain a healthy and youthful appearance, then this treatment could be right for you.
One of the best things about this injectable is that it can also be used as a preventative measure. While those with wrinkles, folds, and thinning of the face will make good candidates, so will those who are younger and are simply looking to prevent wrinkling and sagging from appearing in the first place.
