Bella Tu Medspa in Nyack, NY, conveniently located less than 11 miles from New City, NY.
What Is Restylane Used for?
Restylane is used to reverse the signs of aging caused by volume loss near New City, NY. Most commonly, it is used to treat nasolabial folds, deep lines that run between your mouth and nose. However, the treatment of nasolabial folds is not the only thing this injectable is good for. As an example, it is also common for people to seek this injectable to treat problems they have in their midface. Other uses of this injectable include:
- Erasing crow’s feet
- Treating smoker’s lines
- Volumizing the backs of the hands
- Volumizing the temples
How Quickly Does This Injectable Work?
You will see an immediate improvement in your appearance because the filler volumizes the areas with volume loss. However, it will be roughly one week before you are able to see your desired results. This is because once the hyaluronic acid spreads throughout the treatment areas, your skin starts to use the hydration and irritation from the injections to produce more collagen. Eventually, this extra collagen production restores volume to the areas of concern.
How Many Treatment Sessions Will I Need?
Most people only need one treatment session to achieve their desired results. However, we can’t tell you how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve your desired results until we have evaluated your areas of concern and discussed your goals. There is a very slim chance that you will need two treatment sessions to get enough volume to achieve your desired results.
How Long Will My Treatment Session Take?
Numerous factors affect how long your treatment session will take including the goals you are trying to achieve, how severe your cosmetic concerns are, how many areas you are trying to treat, and how large your areas of concern are. It is possible that your treatment can be completed in only 15 minutes. Nonetheless, it is also possible that your treatment session will take closer to 60 minutes if you are trying to treat a number of large, severe concerns.
Will My Treatment Session Hurt?
If you’ve never had an injectable anti-aging treatment before, you may be a little worried about having a needle puncture your skin, especially if you are concerned about the appearance of your eye region. Fortunately, there is nothing to worry about. We use a minuscule needle to administer the filler, so you will only feel a tiny bit of pressure as the filler is injected.
If you are very wary about needles, we understand. Let us know during your initial consultation. We will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin before your injections are administered, so you won’t feel anything at all. Just be aware that it will take a couple of minutes for this medication to be applied to the skin. You should also be aware that it can take up to 15 minutes for the drug to take full effect. In other words, you could double your treatment time.
What Can I Expect After My Treatment Session?
You can expect to feel no pain or discomfort once the filler has been administered. Before we administer the injectable, we mark the most strategic injection points on your skin with a pen. This ink is removed once we have completed your injections. We will also discuss your post-treatment care guidelines with you.
Since there is no sedation required during this treatment, you are free to drive yourself back to work or home after your treatment. However, there are some restrictions, like not taking NSAIDs.
Am I a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
You may be considered a good candidate for this treatment if you are at least 22 years of age and relatively healthy. However, you need to come in for an evaluation before we can say for sure whether this treatment is right for you because we need to discuss your cosmetic goals and evaluate the cause of your current cosmetic concerns.
A consultation is also required to determine which Restylane formula is right for you. Like Juvederm fillers, each formula is designed to improve the appearance of different regions of the body. During your initial consultation, we will also evaluate your health and ensure that you do not have any chronic or acute medical conditions that will preclude you from qualifying for this treatment.
