How is Restylane Treatment Done?
Before your treatment, you will discuss your concerns and cosmetic goals with an expert injector to determine the best Restylane product. During treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin to alleviate any potential discomfort. A fine needle is then used to inject the filler into the treatment area(s). Injections take 30 minutes or less, depending on the size of the treatment area, and no downtime is required.
The most common side effects after treatment are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function (Restylane Lyft). However, these side effects do not always occur and if they do, they are temporary and mild.
Since Restylane works by stimulating collagen production, it will take about 4-6 weeks before you see results. Restylane results last for 12-18 months, depending on the specific filler used and the treatment area. Restylane Silk lasts for about 6 months.
