What is Restylane®?
Restylane® belongs to a family of dermal filler injections that use natural plant-based ingredients to help boost hydration in the skin and kick-start the body’s own collagen production. The main ingredient in the Restylane® products is hyaluronic acid, which is created within the body. This helps to eliminate the risk of allergic reactions, as well as result in the gradual reduction of visible wrinkles, creases, fine lines, and furrows in the treated area.
What Are the Benefits of Restylane® Treatments?
As we age, our bodies start to inevitably lose hyaluronic acid, which is responsible for keeping our skin soft and supple, yet solid and structured. When our bodies start producing less and less HA, it causes our skin to falter and lose its firmness. Restylane® injections can help to reverse this unfortunate process and provide patients with a more youthful, revitalized appearance. Additionally, it can be a great option for patients who may not be able to use other fillers due to allergens in the formula.

Ideal candidates are over 21 years of age, have realistic expectations, and are trying to combat the effects of aging in the face.

Preparing for Restylane®
During your consultation, you will be advised on any steps you will need to take to prepare for your Restylane® procedure. Typically, you will be required to stop taking certain medications that may increase your chance of bruising. Dr. Mang recommends all patients begin applying arnica before the treatment and directly following the treatment to help prevent or alleviate any swelling.
What Should I Expect on the Day of My Restylane® Treatment?
Please arrive on time and ready to undergo your Restylane® treatment. As per the surgeon’s request, you should have suspended all medications. You should also refrain from smoking or drinking in the days leading up to and after the procedure. If you need, a numbing agent can be applied to help minimize any pain. Most patients compare the sensation to a quick pinch.
