Restylane is a non-animal-based filler that virtually eliminates any risk of animal-based disease transmission or allergic reactions. Restylane works by restoring volume that results in a fullness of the skin. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists in your body. This compound is responsible for the skin’s resilience, glow and youthfulness, but unfortunately it begins to dwindle as we age. Restoring beauty and elegance with Restylane is a way to correct the unfortunate exit of our supply of hyaluronic acid. Aside from the minimal risks, this filler lasts longer than any other now on the market. We have seen patients with positive results for six months or longer.
Dr. Gardenier will inject Restylane into your skin using a fine-gauged needle that is virtually painless. Restylane is formulated with lidocaine, a topical anesthetic to further enable your total comfort. You will be able to see results immediately.
Restylane has been used safely and effectively in the United States since 1996. Millions of Restylane treatments have been administered to both women and men. Restylane is proven to deliver long-lasting results. The doctors at Maine Plastic Surgery have found that our patients generally see nice corrective results to up to six months.
