Restylane ® is a sterile injectable gel which is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of your skin. Aging gradually reduces our skin’s reservoir of hyaluronic acid, leading to the characteristic signs of aging. Dr. Vessely can use Restylane® to add volume to your skin and soften lines and creases or to enhance your natural features. Restylane® is a great filler for lip enhancement and reducing the appearance of vertical lines on the upper lip and lower lips. This quick procedure can be performed in a 30 minute appointment, and the results can last for twelve months or more. Restylane® is now available with an anesthetic agent (lidocaine) built in, making your treatment much more comfortable.
Perlane is similar to Restylane®, but a little more substantive, and used for deeper creases and areas with larger volume requirements. Dr. Vessely can advise you as to which products and treatment options are best for your individual needs.
Restylane Silk is now available to target fine lines, such as vertical lip lines, fine lines on your cheeks, and to enhance your lips.
The family of Restylane products is a wonderful approach to adding volume to all the right places in your face. Loss of volume is one of the most visible signs of aging, and no amount of lifting and tightening, surgical or not, can replace volume. If you have questions as to which filler is the right choice for you, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Vessely and she will help you formulate a treatment plan to help you reach your goals. All three of these products are now available with lidocaine pre-mixed, for a comfortable treatment experience.
