Which Product Is Right for Me?
For optimal results, combinations of both Restylane and BOTOX® are often used. Dr. Sedgh will help you determine which products or product combinations will give you the look you want.
Injectable products are being used in place of implants and surgery. A small touch of additional volume can make a substantial difference in your appearance. An "injectable chin implant" instantly transform a "weak" chin into one that helps balance your facial contours and profile.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
How long a treatment holds its effect is very individual. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life style and muscle activity, as well as on the injection technique.
Restylane will typically last about 6 months and typically longer. When completely absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body. After lip treatments, Dr. Sedgh recommends a follow up treatment after approximately 6 months. This should only be considered as a guideline as the length of time Restylane lasts can depend on many contributing factors.
For wrinkle treatments a topical anesthetic is used. When enhancing the lips, pain relief in the form of an injected lip nerve block - similar to pain blocks given by a dentist.
The ability of Restylane products to integrate with adjacent tissues allows the free passage of vital nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is healthy, natural looking skin with no obstructive elements to compromise skin tissue.
