While aging can bring about many positive changes like wisdom and experience, some people find the physical differences difficult to deal with. Cosmetic changes like wrinkling and sagging can affect your self-esteem and make you feel unhappy with your appearance. At Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NJ, and New City, NY, our Restylane treatments can help.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
While there’s no injectable treatment that can offer permanent results, there are some that will last longer than others. This is one of the longer-lasting ones available, with patients getting to enjoy their results for up to 18 months.
What’s Happening to My Skin?
Your skin goes through a lot of changes throughout your life. Most of these changes have to do with changing levels of certain chemicals present in them. This includes the sugar hyaluronic acid as well as a protein called collagen.
These chemicals tend to be in greater numbers in your youth. However, as you get older, your body stops being able to produce them as well as it did before. This is why you start to see changes in the texture and appearance of your skin. For example, lowering levels of hyaluronic acid will cause thinning, while less collagen can encourage wrinkling and a loss of overall elasticity.
What Exactly Is Restylane?
This dermal filler is approved by the FDA and formulated to provide more volume to the areas where it’s injected, helping your face appear fuller and younger. Its main ingredient is hyaluronic acid.
As you know, this sugar is already present in your skin. When it’s injected via this product, it fills in the space under your skin which makes it look fuller and smooths out any wrinkling you might be seeing. Hyaluronic acid is also known for its ability to encourage the production of more collagen.
What Is Treatment Like?
Before Your Appointment
The first thing we’ll do when you choose our clinic to get your treatment is book a consultation. This is an important part of the process because it gives us the chance to go over your goals as well as your medical history to ensure this treatment is the right one for you.
It’s also an opportunity for us to let you know how you can prepare for your upcoming appointment. It’s important to stay away from things like alcohol and tobacco, as well as certain medications that could thin your blood and make you bruise around the injection sites.
When you visit our clinic, we’ll make sure that your experience with us is the best it can be. Never be afraid to bring up any questions or concerns that you might have at any point in the process. We want to make sure you feel safe and comfortable in our hands. To start, we’ll thoroughly clean the areas where we’ll be injecting the product.
We may also apply a topical numbing cream to help keep you comfortable during your treatment. Once we’ve finished preparing your skin, we’ll start injecting the filler into your desired areas. We inject small amounts at a time to ensure accuracy. You’ll only feel a small pinch as the needle is applied. Most appointments take less than an hour, and you can leave our clinic as soon as it’s done.
As soon as you leave our clinic in Nyack, NJ, and New City, NY, you’ll see a change in your appearance. These changes will continue to improve over the next week or so until you see the full results of your treatment. There’s no downtime required, and there will just be a few things to remember as your skin heals around the injection areas.
We’ll provide you with full instructions. These instructions will include avoiding direct sunlight as well as any extreme temperatures and anything that could trigger excessive sweating, like demanding physical activity. Other than this, you can resume your regular daily life after your appointment.
When Will I See the Results I Want?
You should notice a difference in your face as soon as you leave the clinic and the product takes up space under your skin. Over the next week or so, the product will continue to work until you see the full results of your treatment.
Who Is a Candidate?
Because this treatment is so carefully formulated and uses an ingredient that’s already naturally present in your skin as its main ingredient, almost anyone can be a candidate. People who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or who are currently dealing with skin issues like eczema flare-ups or sunburns around the target areas should wait to get this injectable.
However, if you are in good overall health, then you could be a perfect candidate to receive this treatment. It’s great for people who don’t want to go through something as invasive as surgery but still want to see a noticeable difference in their appearance.
