Your Healthy Glow
LOOK YEARS YOUNGER WITH THE HELP OF RESTYLANE AT OUR MEDSPA IN PEARL RIVER, NY
Skin that is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow marks the signs of youth. Aging brings about volume loss in the face and an inability to maintain a smooth and taut appearance of the skin. The skin becomes thinner, drier, and less able to replenish itself. Hyaluronic acid and collagen, which naturally occur in our bodies, decrease, and skin becomes looser as a result. All this leads to wrinkling and the appearance of aging. At our office in Pearl River Restylane can help restore a youthful, healthy appearance through a quick, minimally invasive procedure.
WHAT IS RESTYLANE?
Putting the HA in Happy
A hyaluronic acid filler, Restylane, is a popular choice. The human body produces its own hyaluronic acid. However, both HA and facial fat decrease with age, leading to a loss of volume and elasticity in the skin. Wrinkles, creases, and other signs of aging may develop as a result.
Restylane can help you look younger by fixing these and other cosmetic problems. It can also serve to add volume in the lips. It’s available in a wide variety of solutions, each tailored to a particular use case. Milder fine lines can be treated with products containing smaller particles, while deeper wrinkles and volume loss can be combated with those containing larger particles.
Benefits for all of your contours
WHAT CAN RESTYLANE DO FOR ME?
Restylane, an FDA-approved injectable for the purpose of smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, or shaping facial contours, is designed to match your skin. The most common areas for injections of Restylane are along the cheekbone, under eyes, mid-face, nasolabial folds, lips, and along the chin or lower jawline.

HOW IS THE RESTYLANE INJECTION PERFORMED?
The Best Techniques
No pre-testing is required; therefore, Restylane injections are performed at our Pearl River and Englewood Cliffs offices and can be performed at the same time as your initial consultation with our doctors.
The procedure takes about 30 minutes, depending on how much correction is desired. A topical anesthetic is applied to the areas that will be treated, and Restylane is injected with fine needles. It is common for patients to find the procedure painless, and the results are obvious as soon as the treatment is complete.
Restylane lasts according to various factors and is not the same for every person. Some factors that may affect how long your results last include: , the amount of facial volume that has been lost due to age, the structure of your skin, and the injection technique of the practitioner. Many patients choose to have repeat treatments within a year after the treatment of folds and wrinkles and within six months after enhancement of the lips. To learn more about Restylane Pearl River patients should call us at (845) 623-6141 to schedule a consultation.
Smooth Wrinkles and Creases
WHAT IS RECOVERY FROM RESTYLANE LIKE?
Do not massage or rub the treated area for 48 hours after the treatment. If you have had a lip enhancement, avoid puckering your lips for the first two days after the treatment. Avoid exposure to extreme heat, such as sunbathing, or extreme cold for the first few days after the treatment to avoid inflammation in the area that has been disturbed by the treatment.
WHAT IS THE RECOVERY FROM RESTYLANE LIKE?
Recovery of the Restylane Injections
Some patients may experience mild side effects immediately after treatment. These side effects may be soreness and bruising at the injection site, possibly with a headache for several hours after the treatment.
Side effects will resolve themselves and can be relieved with mild painkillers. Within one to seven days after treatment, the results of the Restylane injections will be visible. However, most patients see results on day three. Restylane is broken down more slowly by the body due to containing less protein than BOTOX Cosmetic, and can last as long as 13 months.
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can I get Restylane if I am pregnant?
Products made with Restylane have not been studied in nursing or pregnant women. Before starting any new treatment, be sure to let your doctor know if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Do the injections hurt?
Restylane filler products come pre-mixed with lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort patients may feel from the injection.
What are the risks of Restylane?
Reactions directly related to Restylane are rare. However, any injection carries certain risks, though these typically resolve spontaneously a few days after injection to the skin, within a week after injection into the lips, and within two weeks after injection to deeper areas. These reactions include redness, swelling, pain, itching, bruising, or tenderness at the injection site. Additionally, after a lip enhancement, lips may sometimes be swollen for up to a week. Finding a trustworthy plastic surgeon is of utmost importance to reduce risks and have an easy recovery.
