What is Restylane®?

Restylane® is a family of hyaluronic acid facial fillers that can be used on various areas of the face, such as around the mouth and the cheeks. Restylane® under the eyes is another application that is offered at Gillespie Plastic Surgery, and Restylane® lips treatments produce amazingly natural results.

What Can Be Treated with Restylane® Lyft?

Restylane® Lyft is a cheek augmentation product, and Dr. Gillespie also uses it for hand rejuvenation. Adding volume to the cheeks may soften lines around the mouth. Aged hands typically show veins because the skin thins as you get older. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® Lyft adds volume to the skin to rejuvenate your hands.

How is Restylane® Performed?

Restylane® products are pre-packaged in syringes. The number of syringes that is needed varies. Each syringe is equipped with a small needle that is used to deposit the gel formula into the appropriate layer of the skin. During the injections, you may feel a slight prick as the needle is inserted, followed by a slight pressure as the gel is deposited.

What is Recovery Like After Restylane®?

Restylane® treatments do not require any downtime or recovery. You may notice some swelling, tenderness, and bruising at each injection site for the first one to two days. You should not massage or rub the area as this can move the gel out of place and interfere with having the ideal results.

How Long Will Restylane® Results Last?

The results of your Restylane® injections may last for one year or longer, based on the product and type of anti-aging correction that is needed. Dr. Gillespie describes what to expect from your treatments as part of the consultation.
