Restylane® in Boca Raton, FL
One of the biggest signs of aging is deep folds and lines in the areas around the mouth and nose. Daniel Man, M.D., a Florida board-certified plastic surgeon, treats people in Boca Raton, FL, and the surrounding communities with Restylane®, an injectable filler that reduces lines in and around the lips, between the lips and nose, and occasionally around the cheekbones below the eyes, plumping and smoothing away wrinkles.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an injectable filler containing a synthetic version of hyaluronic acid (HA), a material that occurs naturally in the body and transfers nutrients between the bloodstream and the skin cells. When Restylane® is injected into folds and wrinkles, it supplements the hyaluronic acid already present in the body, gently plumping and filling the skin on the hands and face to restore a younger, fresher look.
A primary ingredient in Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, which attracts water to add volume to the face as well as the hands. What makes Restylane® different is its advantage over other fillers because of the following benefits:
- Very slight risk of allergic reaction
- No ingredients harvested from animal byproducts
- No downtime or recovery
- Quick appointments
- Compatible with the human body
Is Restylane® Right for Me?
Restylane® may be right for you if you have deeper, more pronounced wrinkles, lines, and folds. Additionally, if you want to restore moisture to your skin so to have a brighter appearance, Restylane® is an excellent filler to diminish the signs of aging.
How is Restylane® Injected?
When Restylane® is injected and massaged along the length of a wrinkle or skin fold or used for hand rejuvenation, the hyaluronic acid encourages nutrients to be directed towards the injection site and helps the area retain water, hydrating the lips and facial folds and filling in wrinkles and lines.
No anesthesia is needed for the administration of Restylane® injections, although a topical anesthetic may be used for sensitive areas. Most treatments consist of multiple injections along the site of a skin fold or wrinkle.
How is the Recovery after Restylane® Treatments?
Patients normally experience only slight swelling, redness, or tenderness, which diminishes quickly. Most patients notice a significant difference in appearance immediately after treatment. Depending on the severity of wrinkles and lip lines, only one to two Restylane® treatments are generally needed. Restylane® treatments usually last four to six months before requiring a touch-up, as the hyaluronic acid naturally dissipates into the body.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
The cost of Restylane® is different for each patient primarily depending on the number of injections needed to treat the targeted area and whether it is combined with other treatments. Dr. Man goes over the costs associated with Restylane® injections as well as payment options and financing.
