Restylane

Restylane is a gel-like material that is injected into the face to restore volume.  Some may ask how this simple concept can improve balance and shadowing on the face, and for my patients seeking dermal fillers in North Carolina, I want to explain how it works.

As we age, the face loses fat and bone.  As we lose these structures, the face deflates similarly to a balloon that constantly loses a small amount of air.  As the balloon loses air, it begins to form wrinkles and sag.  With aging, the face undergoes a similar process, though with the addition of volume, the face can be filled, lifted, and wrinkles smoothed.

What is the composition of Restylane?

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid.  Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that composes the extracellular matrix in the body.  The extracellular matrix is responsible for supporting the cells of the body.  Restylane is composed of a naturally occurring substance in the human body, making it very safe for all patients to undergo.

Where is Restylane injected in the face?

Restylane is a safe product and can be injected anywhere in the face.  There are areas that are more sensitive to injections than others due to the thinness of the skin.  Obviously, Restylane in Charlotte cannot be injected in the tissues directly surrounding the eye.

Can Restylane Improve My Eye Bags?

As a facial plastic surgeon in Charlotte, I commonly inject Restylane around the eyes of my patients to smoothen the bags underneath the eyes.  It blends with the groove that causes the eye-bag camouflaging the bag.

What if I don’t Like the Restylane?  Can Restylane Be Removed?

Patients always want to know of the worst case scenario and want to know what their options are if they do not like their Restylane.  Restylane can be injected with an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which instantaneously dissolves all of the previously injected Restylane.  If a patient doesn’t like how they look after getting Restylane in North Carolina, it can be easily removed.

How Long Does Restylane Last?

This is a difficult question to answer because Restylane is slowly absorbed by the body.  I tell people the real question is how often you have to have Restylane injected.  I believe patients like to have the area re-injected after 60% of the Restylane has been absorbed.  Depending on the area of the face, this will be every 6-12 months.  Areas of the face that move more frequently (the mouth), will dissolve the Restylane faster than non-mobile areas (temples).

Do I Need the Same Amount Each Time I Have A Treatment?

No.  If you receive injections of Restylane in North Carolina before 100% of it has been dissolved by the body, you should require less on your follow-up treatments.

How Much Does Restylane Cost in Charlotte?

There are a wide range of prices of Restylane in Charlotte.  Restylane is priced per syringe.  Each syringe contains 1ml of product.  If you are having a specialty trained facial plastic surgeon do the injections, it will likely cost more than a person of less education.  Also, the price can vary between the first and subsequent syringe.

What is Unique Regarding the Technique to Inject Restylane in Charlotte at Carolina Facial Plastics?

Restylane has been traditionally injected with a needle.  A needle is painful, traumatic, and can cause bruising.  At Carolina Facial Plastics, we injected Restylane with a blunt tipped microcannula.  Since the microcannula is blunt at the end, it causes less trauma resulting in a more comfortable experience and less risk of a bruise.
