Restylane is a popular dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane is a non-animal based hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the human body, eliminating the possibility of an allergic reaction.
The treatment is simple and convenient, and results are almost instantaneous. Arnica, a natural anti-inflammatory, is applied to the treatment area for patients’ comfort. Dr. Wiener also recommends ibuprofen post-treatment as patients may experience 1 to 2 days of mild swelling and possibly some bruising.
Restylane results are long-lasting, giving skin a more youthful appearance for 6 months or longer.
