Restylane’s Use of Water
Water is the source of all life, and it’s key to how Restylane® works in shaping the appearance you desire. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance already present in the human body that plays an important role in giving firmness to the skin, shape to the eyes and lubrication to the joints. Hyaluronic acid has the important ability to attract and bind to water molecules to help maintain volume.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane is a safe crystal-clear gel called NASHA™, or Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid, which mimics your own natural hyaluronic acid.
Restylane is fully biocompatible, and treatments can be carried out immediately-with no need to wait for allergy testing.
Is Restylane the Right Treatment for Me?
Dr. Zaks will first assess what’s causing the appearance issues you have. Dark circles can be from volume loss or may be a combination of volume loss and natural pigment or the “show through” of tiny blood vessels. Volume loss is treated with very carefully placed injections of Restylane. Pigmentation, if deemed part of the problem, can be treated with other procedures or topical products.
Any injections around the eyes must be precisely placed to avoid damage to delicate nerves. As a Board Certified Dermatologist, Dr. Zaks has the training and expertise needed to make sure your injections are performed safely.
Following your treatment, you may immediately return back to daily activities, however, treatment sites may be somewhat swollen and puffy for 1-2 days
How long will the results last?
Restylane lasts 6 months or longer for most patients.
Can other filler products be used along with Restylane?
Other fillers may be used to address more superficial lines. Botox is an excellent companion treatment for crows feet and frown lines.
Treatments frequently combined with Restylane Injections
- Botox for relaxing frown lines and furrows
- Titan for contouring and tightening the face, and tightening the neck and abdomen
