Soften Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane dermal injections take place inside the treatment room at Allegro MedSpa of Santa Rosa. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to decrease swelling. Each Restylane formula is administered with a similar technique but on different areas of the face targeted to fit your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect with Restylane®
When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep upright for at least the first night. Most patients will experience some improvements immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year, depending on the exact product used.
