Restylane has recently been introduced as a temporary injectable filler for the treatment of facial wrinkles, depressed scars, “tear trough” deformities and deep nasolabial grooves (the groove from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth.) It is also very effective for lip augmentation.
Restylane is a synthetic form of hyluronic acid, which is a substance naturally found in healthy skin. Unlike collagen injections, no skin testing is necessary and allergic reactions are much less common.
Restylane lasts around 6-9 months between injections. You will have some minor swelling for a day or two but this is minimal. Most patients can return to work or other social activities right after the injections.
Your Restylane injections are performed personally by Dr. Mistretta. These injections are a precise surgical procedure that cannot be delegated to less experienced personnel. You deserve the best possible treatment and results.
