Restylane in Atlanta, GA

Vein & Skin Laser Center offers Restylane® for the residents of Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia. 

Restylane® is a smooth consistency gel made of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. When Restylane® is injected under the skin, it immediately smoothes away facial wrinkles and folds and restores the skin’s volume. Restylane® works on the trouble areas such as your “smile lines” or “parentheses” (nasolabial folds − the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of your mouth). The injection process is very quick, taking about 15 minutes. Part of Restylane®’s popularity is the speed and its immediate results. Plus, there’s minimal recovery or downtime.

 

 

Frequently Asked Questions

What does Restylane® do?

Restylane® injectable gel adds volume to facial tissue and gives that desired smooth and youthful appearance to the face.

What makes Restylane® different from other dermal fillers?

Restylane® is an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid works to create a smooth consistency gel that flows easily into the skin and provides a smooth, natural look and feel. Other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers currently on the market are made of granular consistency gels. Restylane® is the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.

What is Restylane® indicated for?

Restylane® is used for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane® gel is indicated for injection into the mid to deep dermis (below the outer layer of skin) where wrinkles originate.

How is Restylane® injectable gel used in treatment?

A fine needle is used to inject the gel into the desired area to temporarily fill, smooth, and add volume to wrinkles and folds in the skin.

What is hyaluronic acid?

Hyaluronic acid is found in all animals. This type of acid is naturally occurring and helps to hydrate and add volume to your skin. Hyaluronic acid not only has cosmetic benefits, but has also been used for two decades to help soothe arthritic joints and aid in movement, as well as aid in wound repair.

How long does treatment usually take?

The injection process takes about 15 minutes. A little extra time may be needed to speak with the doctor.

Is treatment with Restylane® injectable gel painful?

There may be slight discomfort during the injection, but it quickly fades after the treatment. The doctor may numb the area, if needed.

Does the correction last forever?

No. Restylane® is temporary and will need to be repeated to maintain the desired results.

What are the possible side effects of Restylane® injectable gel?

Side effects of Restylane®, similar to any other filler, may include tenderness, redness, bruising, itching, swelling, or discoloration. However, these side effects are generally mild and rarely last more than one week.

How long do results last?

Results last approximately one year.

Can people with different skin tones/colors be treated with Restylane®?

Yes. In fact, Restylane® injectable gel is the first FDA-approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has proven its safety and effectiveness in persons of color.

While cosmetic improvement is often a factor in seeking Restylane®, Vein & Skin Laser Center understands that relief from any discomfort is often the primary concern for patients in Atlanta, Sandy Springs and the surrounding communities in Georgia.

Our physicians use advanced diagnostic techniques to choose the best non-surgical or minimally invasive procedures for the improvement of facial lines, to plump your lips and reduce the appearance of wrinkles to ensure that both aesthetic concerns and painful symptoms are addressed simultaneously, effectively and safely.
