Dr. Theocharides offers Restylane® as a treatment for restoring lost volume that produces signs of aging on the face.
Like Juvederm, Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid facial filler which can effectively treat moderate to severe wrinkles and facial folds in the mid-face. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is naturally produced by the body, playing an important role in keeping the skin and other tissues hydrated and stimulating collagen production for that youthful appearance.
As we age, the production of HA decreases, causing the skin to appear drier and lose elasticity as collagen production is reduced. This leads to the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and other more noticeable signs of aging that can be addressed with the use of dermal fillers such as Restylane.
One of the most exciting features of Restylane® is the first and only dermal filler FDA-approved for lip enhancement. Restylane can restore fullness and symmetry to the lips for up to 6 months or longer.*
The only FDA approved dermal filler for use on and around the lips, Restylane Silk can provide moderate lip enhancement and shaping in patients over 21 years of age. Like other areas of the face and body, the decreased production of HA and subsequent loss of collagen in the lips can lead to the appearance of lines and wrinkles on and around the lips, making them appear thinner and flatter.
Injected using an ultra thin needle, the smooth gel contains smaller particles than traditional dermal fillers for more controlled injection and smoother results. The meticulous injection of Restylane Silk around the mouth produces natural-looking fuller lips for a healthy and more youthful appearance.
If you are looking for fuller cheeks and smoother skin without surgery, Restylane Lyft may be for you. Restylane Lyft is an FDA approved filler for the use of adding volume and smoothing lines in the cheek region of the face. For patients who are experiencing a loss of fullness in the cheeks, or deepening of the nasolabial folds, Restylane Lyft offers natural looking and long lasting results. Patients typically enjoy results for up to 12 months.* Restylane Lyft is a non surgical and minimally invasive treatment for smile lines and sagging cheeks that can be completed in a single visit to our office.
Treatment with Restylane: What To Expect
Dr. Theocharides will meet with you to discuss your personal concerns, health history and cosmetic goals to determine if treatment with Restylane is right for you. The number of sessions and amount of filler necessary will depend upon your desired result.
Each session lasts approximately 30 minutes, during which the area to be treated will be numbed with a topical anesthetic for your comfort during the injection. Typically, patients experience little to no discomfort during their treatment and can resume their daily routine immediately.
Mild redness, swelling or tenderness at the injection site is common and can last for a couple of days. Your immediate results will continue to improve in the coming weeks. Results can last for 6 months or more and be extended with periodic touch up filler.**Disclaimer: results may vary
