Restoring lost volume and decreasing wrinkles is something many people desire when they notice signs of aging or sun damage. Fortunately, these issues can easily be resolved with Restylane®, an injectable filler designed to restore volume and help plump wrinkles. This treatment is available from Dr. Steven Carp’s Green and Beachwood, OH clinics, which proudly serves patients in and around the Canton, Cleveland and Akron areas.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a product that helps to restore moisture to the skin. This helps the skin on the body and face to have a more youthful fullness. Hyaluronic acid is used by plastic surgeons as an injectable filler. It is derived from plants, rather than animals. Restylane® is a patented injectable filler that can add volume to a person’s face when they experience wrinkles, severe facial folds, or marionette lines, which are creases located around the corners of the mouth. As individuals age, these lines, also known as nasolabial folds, are more likely to appear.
Benefits of Restylane®
The benefits that male and female patients who use Restylane® products will see include the following:
- Softer and younger looking skin
- Less scarring from acne or injuries
- Fuller skin around the mouth and eyes
How Is Restylane® Administered?
Restylane® is injected into the patient’s skin near folds and creases using a fine needle. Here at the Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, Dr. Carp may massage around the area where the patient was injected. This will optimize contouring. Restylane® treatment is convenient, simple and offers fast results.
Preparing for Restylane®
Restylane® treatment will only last for about 30 minutes to an hour. There is no special preparation required. Patients will be able to go back to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
Because this is a minimally invasive treatment that only uses a small needle, patients who undergo Restylane® treatment require no downtime. There are some mild symptoms that a person may experience after the procedure, such as numbness or bruising. However, after three days, a person will notice improvements to their skin. The results can last for up to six months.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
The majority of insurance companies are not likely to offer a reimbursement for Restylane® treatment because it is considered an elective procedure. Here at the Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center, we offer financing for individuals who are interested in receiving skin rejuvenation treatments. Other payment options that are accepted for Restylane® treatments include cash, personal check, or major credit card. Individuals who are interested in this treatment should contact us here at the Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center today.
Are Restylane® Injections Right for Me?
Restylane® injections are used by Dr. Carp on the lips, chin, and cheeks. This treatment is effective for reducing wrinkles, creases and folds seen on the face. It is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. People who are taking certain medications or have various types of skin infections are not good candidates for this treatment.
What to Expect During Your Restylane® Consultation
When a person visits the Carp Cosmetic Surgery Center for a consultation, Dr. Carp will discuss the individual’s medical history, including any specific skin conditions or allegories he or she may have. Dr. Carp will also try to determine the type of results the patient would like to see from Restylane® treatment. He will explain the entire process and how much of the product will be needed. During the consultation, the patient should feel free to ask questions. Dr. Carp will give an honest evaluation to the patient and determine if the Restylane® treatment is right for the individual to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, creases, and folds.
