Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell in Plano, TX provide a variety of dermal fillers and injectables to help combat the signs of aging. Many patients who are interested in rejuvenating their face and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles consider treatments such as Restylane. Our practice can review the benefits of Restylane to patients to ensure they fully understand the advantages it can provide as a non-invasive anti-aging solution.
Restylane is an injectable gel used by dermatologists to help smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and folds in specific areas of the face. It is made of hyaluronic acid and is carefully injected into the facial tissue to add volume temporarily. It can work on moderate to severe facial wrinkles, and it has been recently approved for lip augmentation. Restylane was approved by the FDA in 2003 and has been used over a decade to assist patients in enhancing their natural beauty without the need for plastic surgery. Results last approximately six months and they can be maintained to slow the signs of aging with re-injection.
Although Restylane is minimally invasive and is considered to have little to no downtime, patients who undergo injections may experience some minor side effects which may include itching, tenderness in the injection area, swelling, redness, and bruising. Many of these will go away within hours or days after the initial treatment.
Restylane may not be appropriate for all patients. The doctors at DSA Dermatology will carefully take your medical history and ensure that you are a perfect candidate before proceeding with any dermatological procedure.
Patients who reside in the Plano area can speak with Drs. Daniel Achtman and Carmine McConnell about the ways in which they can address the unwanted aftereffects of aging. As the skin becomes more relaxed, it develops fine lines and wrinkles, which can make patients look much older than they feel. At DSA Dermatology, we want to help our patients rejuvenate their appearance and feel better about the way they look. Contact our team today to schedule an initial consultation and find out if Restylane or any other injectables available at our practice are appropriate for your anti-aging needs.
