26 Procedures ( View All )

Overview

One of the most exciting advancements in the field of noninvasive facial enhancement are injectable wrinkle fillers, like Restylane Lyft and Restylane Silk, which are used to temporarily plump the skin. While cosmetic treatments used to concentrate simply on correcting wrinkles and folds, cosmetic surgeons have more recently been using dermal fillers to re-contour the face for a more youthful appearance, achieving a 3-dimensional rejuvenation. At Cosmetic Surgery Specialists in Langhorne, Bucks County, PA, double board-certified cosmetic surgeon and ophthalmologist Dr. Alan Brackup frequently uses fillers, such as Restylane Lyft and Silk, to achieve immediate and dramatic improvement with no downtime. Both Restylane Lyft and Silk have a hyaluronic acid-based gel that can be used in several areas of the face, including the lips and cheeks, to add youthful volume while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

Procedure Technique

A Restylane treatment is quick and involves precise injection where volume is needed. The practitioner will clean the face thoroughly and then mark the injection areas with ink. A fine needle delivers the solution into the skin gradually to reshape and gain youthful contours. The procedure is pain-free with just slight discomfort of the injection prick that can be helped with a numbing cream that is applied prior to treatment. The quantity that is injected depends on how much volume the injection site needs. If the cheek appears to sag, it is filled in until it creates a lifted appearance that is reminiscent of youth. The duration of treatment may last up to 30 minutes.

What to Expect

The results following a Restylane treatment are immediate. There may be swelling and redness around the treated areas, which will subside after several hours. Patients may resume work immediately but must avoid strenuous activities for about 24 hours. They are also advised not to put any pressure on the face and keep the head elevated so that the filler settles well to achieve the intended contours. Results may last up to one full year. This procedure is safe to repeat to maintain the desired results. For most patients, this is about every 6 months.

Restylane FAQs

Best Function?

Restylane is commonly used for lip augmentation. The results are natural looking with a soft feel that patients love. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires the patient to be at least 21 years old to receive the treatment.

Which Facial Areas?

This treatment is best used to fill in severe facial creases around the nose and the mouth. It is an effective volumizer for sagging nasolabial folds and marionette lines, or even to decrease jowls. 

Fillers or Traditional Lift?

Both correct different cosmetic issues. Surgical lifts are a better option for those whose skin has a significant loss of elasticity. Dermal fillers are ideal treatments for those who still have a healthy skin tone, but are beginning to show facial aging symptoms such as fine lines, wrinkles and hollow areas. During the initial consultation, the doctor will discuss in detail all of the options available and the best approach to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals.
