Restylane is a synthetic gel that is used to fill wrinkles and hollow areas on your face. It is hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in our bodies that can add volume and hydration. Restylane can make you look younger in many ways. It can be used to fill the nasal labial fold (the crease from the nose to the lips), to fill lips, to fill the hollows under your eyes, to the chin, to the nasal bridge and along the cheek bone to give more facial definition. Unlike collagen, Restylane is not derived from animal product so the chance of allergic reaction is minimal. No testing is required. People allergic to collagen can have Restylane injected.
During the procedure we use topical numbing medication and occasionally local numbing to make the procedure more comfortable. Dr. Babcock then injects the medication into the wrinkle or depression. The results of beautiful skin are seen immediately. Restylane attracts water so the full result is not seen for 2-3 days. The product is slowly absorbed by your body so most patients repeat the treatment every 6-8 months. Some people experience bruising for 3-4 days after the procedure. You can greatly reduce your risk of bruising by stopping aspirin, ibuprofen, Aleve and vitamins approximately two weeks prior to your appointment. Dr. Babcock can talk to you further about the use of Restylane in your rejuvenation plan. Please call (404) 835-3052 for an appointment.
