Dr. Ian Levenson provides a wide range of dermal filler products to help correct signs of facial aging, addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable wrinkle fillers since it treats several issues with specialized formulas for long-lasting results. Restylane uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), giving your complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A custom dermal filler plan can treat mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to your lips and cheeks. The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity in Greenwood Village, CO carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
Restylane treatments are suitable for any patient older than 21 years old who wants to improve their overall appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment will be customized to fit your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you treat early signs of aging, such as fine lines throughout the face, or boost the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve moderate to severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Some treatments contain lidocaine so you need to share any allergies at your pretreatment consultation with Dr. Levenson to prevent a negative reaction.
Restylane injections are performed in a private treatment room at The Colorado Center for Health and Longevity. A numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas for greater comfort if requested. The product is injected in your skin with a fine needle and massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed, followed by a cold compress to help control inflammation. Every Restylane product is injected the same way but on different areas treated according to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane injections are complete, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery will vary based on what you are having treated so ask Dr. Levenson about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this usually fades away in a few hours. Bruising may be a factor, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid exercise for 24 hours and you should sleep with the head propped up for the first night. Many patients will notice visible changes right after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injections often last up to one year based on the formula selected.
