If years of smiles and volume loss have deepened the grooves around your nose and mouth, or if you’ve yearned for fuller, more youthful lips, ask Tulsa Family Dental about Restylane® injections. This easily administered treatment can make a remarkable difference in your appearance without the cost, pain, and downtime of invasive surgical procedures.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a non-surgical gel facial filler made from natural hyaluronic acid. It is used to reduce facial lines, folds and wrinkles, and to enhance the lips. Restylane® treatments are renowned for their ability to add more youthful contours and fullness to the face, improving skin structure and elasticity.
What is Restylane® used to treat?
As time goes by, collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down in our lips and skin, causing dehydration, drooping, and unwanted wrinkles and creases. Restylane® can be used to counteract the effects of this aging process, treating problems such as:
- Facial lines, wrinkles, and contours
- Smile lines (nasolabial folds)
- Jowls (marionette lines)
- Dehydrated, asymmetrical, or sagging skin
- Thinning or wrinkled lips
Dr. Matthew Warlick’s clients commonly request Restylane® for “marionette lines” and for restoring lost volume and moisture to the lips.
How is the Restylane® procedure performed?
Although many clients worry that the process will be painful, Restylane® treatments are quick, simple, and almost pain-free. A topical numbing agent may be applied before the procedure in the unlikely event of discomfort. The filler is then injected into the skin with an ultra-fine needle, filling out and smoothing away lines and wrinkles.
What kind of results should I expect?
The results of a Restylane® treatment are immediate, and depending on the individual, they can last anywhere from six to nine months. The number of treatments needed for optimum effect also varies from person to person, depending on the result you’d like to achieve. On average, our clients need about three treatment sessions, each four weeks apart. Restylane® will markedly smooth wrinkles and refresh your appearance, but the results will look very natural.
