Restylane Treatment in Vancouver by Dr. Ritchie Younger
Although the facelift is the unrivaled rejuvenating procedure for people in their 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, younger people can benefit greatly from non-surgical, non-interventional cosmetic treatments such as BOTOX® and dermal fillers like Restylane.
Restylane is a popular dermal filler worldwide because it is a safe, temporary, non-animal form of a hyaluronic acid gel that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid — a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells.
Even though Restylane treatment is a popular treatment performed on millions of people around the world, results with Restylane vary. The experience, knowledge, and skill of the person administering the treatment have a big impact on the outcome.
Where do you put Restylane?
Restylane is used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles of the face, enhancement of the lips as well as shaping facial contours. The most common areas to have done are lips, nasal labial folds, smile lines and drooping corners of the mouth. It can also add lost volume of the face.
It is not to be confused with BOTOX, which relaxes muscles — though they work brilliantly together as a team.
How long will Restylane last?
The actual treatment takes only a few minutes and the Restylane takes effect immediately. Since Restylane is a natural substance, which dissolves over time, the correction does not last forever. Typically patients see the effects fade in around 6 to 8 months, but it sometimes lasts up to 3 years, depending on the treatment area. A simple reinjection at this time can restore the desired look.
Who can perform Restylane treatment?
Only a trained physician should do this therapy. At Younger Facial Surgery Centre, only Dr. Younger performs Restylane treatments. Dr. Younger works closely with each patient to create a custom treatment plan that is specific to their facial structure and desired objectives. This, along with his expert knowledge of facial anatomy and discriminating eye for beauty and proportions, results in an optimum outcome and a happy, satisfied client.
Are there any side effects?
Restylane has minimal side effects. There may be minor swelling and redness after the treatment, which typically resolves in a day or two. Allergic reactions to Restylane are uncommon.
