Look years younger with the help of Restylane® at medspa in Pearl River, NY
Skin that is smooth and elastic with a healthy glow mark the signs of youth. Aging brings about the inability to maintain that smoothness and elasticity of the skin as muscles decrease. The skin becomes thinner and drier and less able to replenish itself. Hyaluronic acid and collagen, which naturally occur in our bodies, decrease and skin becomes looser. All this leads to wrinkling and the appearance of aging. Restylane® can help restore your skin to a youthful, healthy appearance through a quick, minimally invasive procedure.
What can Restylane® do for me?
Restylane®, FDA approved injection for the purpose of smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips or shaping facial contours is designed to match your skin. It will perform for many months in your skin. The most common areas for injections of Restylane® are the lines between the eyebrows, the folds from the base of your nose to the corner of your mouth, and volumizing and shaping of lips and facial contours.
How is the procedure performed?
No pre-testing is required, therefore Restylane® can be performed at our New York or New Jersey offices, almost immediately, upon having a consultation with Dr. Fiorillo. 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 results are obvious as soon as the treatment is complete.
Restylane® lasts according to various factors and is not the same for every person. The factors affecting how long the effects are prolonged are age, the structure of your skin, and the injection technique of the practitioner. Rest assured that Dr. Fiorillo is an expert at this procedure, so you can be sure his technique is the best you can receive.
Touch-ups and follow-ups assist in adding to the duration, but most people choose to have a new, full treatment within a year after the treatment of folds and wrinkles, and within 6 months after enhancement of the lips. Set up an appointment with Dr. Fiorillo at his medspa in Pearl River, NY.
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 2 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. Once Restylane® has incorporated itself into your facial areas, it will adjust to normal body temperatures
What are the risks of Restylane®?
Reactions directly related to Restylane® are rare. However, any injection carries certain risks, though these typically resolve themselves spontaneously a few days after injection to the skin, within a week after injection into the lips and within two weeks after injection with Restylane®. 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 cosmetic surgeon is of utmost importance to reduce risks and have an easy recovery.
