To reduce the visible signs of aging, often caused by stress, environmental factors, and lifestyle choices, Dr. David Zweiback offers Restylane®, an injectable filler that can smooth lines and wrinkles and add a supple quality to the skin. At our Philadelphia, PA, practice, we offer a variety of dermal fillers in the Restylane family, including Restylane Perlane and Restylane SubQ, which address unique areas of the face. These gels can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic treatments to add volume to cheeks, reduce smile lines, and subtly enhance thin lips.
Restylane injections can add volume to areas around the eyes, forehead, cheeks, and lips.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring material found in the body. When injected below the surface of the skin, this gel attracts and holds moisture, making skin appear plump and revitalized. Compared to JUVÉDERM®, Restylane has a more cohesive consistency and granular texture, so it is easier to manipulate into proper position.
Are You a Candidate?
The best candidates for this treatment include patients who are not pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a history of allergic reactions. You may qualify for Restylane fillers if you seek to:
- Augment thin lips
- Add volume to fallen or hollow cheeks
- Smooth fine lines and deep facial folds
- Treat nasolabial folds, also known as smile lines
- Address lines around the lips
- Treat fine lines around the eyes
- Minimize acne scars
- Treat frown lines
- Add contour the jaw line
Dr. Zweiback can review your medical history and cosmetic goals to determine if this cosmetic treatment is right for you.
Types of Restylane Fillers Offered
Dr. Zweiback offers several types of Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane: This dermal filler is designed to target fine lines and tiny crevices on the forehead and around the lips and eyes.
- Restylane Perlane: This option can fill in deep wrinkles and facial folds around the nose and mouth, as well as reduce frown lines in between the eyes.
- Restylane SubQ: This gel is injected deep below the surface of the skin and can provide a facelift effect without the need for invasive surgery. Restylane SubQ is designed to add volume to fallen and sunken cheeks, as well as create a more defined chin and jawline.
Restylane fillers can last anywhere from four to six months, but their lifespan can be extended when combined with PRP injections. To help you maintain optimal results, we can create a customized treatment plan, providing touch-up injections when needed.
What to Expect During Treatment
If you decide to proceed with treatment, Dr. Zweiback can apply a topical anesthetic over the target areas and carefully inject Restylane into the underlying tissue. Due to its moldable texture, Dr. Zweiback can then gently massage the filler into proper position until desired results are achieved. This safe and effective treatment can generally be completed in 30 minutes, and you can immediately return to normal activity.
These gels can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic treatments to add volume to cheeks, reduce smile lines, and subtly enhance thin lips.
It is not uncommon to experience some soreness and redness near the injection sites for the first 24 hours after treatment. However, patients can enjoy results almost immediately. To ensure an optimal outcome, Dr. Zweiback can provide aftercare instructions. It is advisable to minimize sunlight and heat exposure and avoid certain facial rejuvenation treatments.
