Restylane places hyaluronic acid beneath your skin to enhance its volume. Hyaluronic acid is a substance in your body that lubricates the skin and internal tissues, including the joints and eyes. While hyaluronic acid keeps your skin hydrated and supple during youth, its levels deplete with age.
Restylane harnesses this viscous, slippery component to restore your skin’s youthful fullness and vitality. With several different formulations, Restylane can address many common aging concerns.

After a thorough cosmetic consultation, Dr. Stewart can recommend the appropriate type of Restylane for your skin concerns.
While you don’t need to prepare for Restylane treatments, taking a few steps before your injections can maximize your results and ensure the safest outcome. Avoid blood-thinning medications and certain supplements a few days before your visit.
Dr. Stewart also recommends avoiding retinoids and alcohol the night before to prevent irritation. If you bruise easily, take the supplement Arnica about two days before your appointment.
You can expect a short visit for Restylane treatments. After a cosmetic consultation, Dr. Stewart discusses your filler options and maps out your injection sites. She may recommend multiple types of Restylane to achieve your desired results. Once you’re ready, she applies a topical numbing cream and administers the filler.
Restylane results are instant, though you may notice minor swelling, redness, and bruising at the injection sites. These side effects dissipate quickly.
Most Restylane products last at least 6-12 months when injected into the face. Injections for crepey hands may last for six months or less, depending on your lifestyle.
Restylane treatments can plump up the skin for a smoother, younger-looking appearance. Call Aesthetic Surgery and Dermatology of Cherry Creek today or schedule an appointment online to find out if you’re a candidate for Restylane.
