Hyaluronic Acid:
Your Skin’s Primary Humectant

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is your skin’s primary humectant, a natural molecule found in the body that plays a crucial role in maintaining skin hydration and suppleness. Its unique property lies in its ability to attract and retain water, holding up to 1,000 times its weight in moisture. As you grow older, your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves diminish, leading to wrinkles and the loss of facial volume. Restylane fillers restore your HA reserves to reverse the signs of aging.

Restylane: An Overview

Restylane is a widely recognized and trusted brand of dermal fillers composed of hyaluronic acid. These FDA-approved injectables are designed to address various cosmetic concerns, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and loss of facial volume. By carefully injecting Restylane beneath the skin’s surface, we restore moisture and add volume to your skin, resulting in a more youthful and refreshed appearance. With different formulations tailored for specific areas, Restylane offers a versatile and non-surgical solution for facial rejuvenation.

Restylane FAQs

Are Restylane injections painful?

Most Restylane products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize discomfort during the procedure. We can also use numbing creams or ice to further reduce pain.

Is there downtime after Restylane treatment?

Restylane involves little to no downtime. You can resume your daily activities immediately, but avoid strenuous workouts for one day. You may experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection site for a few days.

How long do the results of Restylane last?

The longevity of results varies depending on the specific Restylane product used and individual factors. On average, results can last from 6 to 18 months.

Can Restylane be reversed if I'm not satisfied with the results?

In rare cases of dissatisfaction or complications, hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Restylane can be reversed using an enzyme called hyaluronidase. As a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Burchhardt always offers safe, personalized treatments, and our patients are always thrilled with the results.
