Cosmetique is proud to offer Restylane®, a safe and effective dermal filler that can help us reduce your facial wrinkles.
The treatment is especially useful for correcting wrinkles and lines near the nose and mouth.
If you’re looking for a minimally invasive way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin, you may be a good candidate for Restylane.
Restylane is composed of a substance found naturally in the human body and is free from animal proteins, making it a very safe, biocompatible treatment that poses almost no risk of an allergic reaction. Restylane has also been proven to last longer than many other cosmetic fillers and can reduce wrinkles by about 80 percent.
As a general rule, the best candidates are healthy and have realistic expectations. We can determine if Restylane is suitable for you after a brief consultation at our Manhattan or Long Island office.
Treatment can be finished in just minutes. Most patients are in and out of the office in less than an hour. Prior to treatment, your face will be cleansed with an antiseptic. We will then identify the appropriate injection locations and determine the amount of product that is necessary.
The injections are administered with a fine needle for minimal discomfort. Following injection, we may gently massage the treatment sites to ensure even distribution. An ice pack may also be placed on the treatment sites to minimize the risk of swelling.
There is no downtime after treatment. You can return to work and other normal routines immediately. It is important to note that the treatment sites will be sensitive initially, so you will be advised to avoid immediate sun exposure. You may notice slight swelling, which should resolve on its own within a day or two.
The results of the treatment are instantaneous and can last for up to one year. Maintenance treatments will be necessary to ensure long-lasting results. In many cases, Restylane can be combined with our other procedures for the most satisfying results.
