At New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Weymouth, Mass., we’re all about giving our patients the latest and most effective anti-aging treatments and products.
We’re proud to offer our patients Restylane, an injectable treatment that addresses folds and wrinkles to make a dynamic change in how you look.
Restylane is a Swedish product that is the result of decades of research. Restylane debuted in 1996. Since then, more than a million Restylane treatments have been successfully performed in more than 60 countries around the globe.
What is Restylane?
Restylane is a biodegradable gel and a NASHA, which stands for Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid. This acid is found naturally in your body and it is used to both carry and bind water.
Restylane is a versatile treatment and can be used to reduce folds and wrinkles, enhance facial contours and sculpt your lips. At New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, our team uses Restylane to help you achieve the look you want – quickly and effectively.
Unlike other injectable wrinkle treatments and lip enhancers, Restylane does not come from animals. You won’t need a skin test, so most patients can begin treatments right away.
During treatment sessions, our trained professionals will inject Restylane into your skin, using tiny portions and a fine needle. After it’s injected into your skin, Restylane creates volume that treats folds and wrinkles and shapes your facial contours.
Restylane also enhances lips in patients who want that treatment, and best of all, it leaves lips looking natural.
Results are immediate and Restylane injections are safe, fast and don’t leave scars or other signs that you have had treatment.
How Long Do Results Last?
Restylane treatments work immediately and last for six months, and longer in some cases. Those results last two to three times more than collagen. Restylane also gives you the chance to re-examine your results after initial effects have subsided.
At New England Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center, we will consult with you to determine whether you need, or want, follow-up treatments. But our experience suggests regular follow-up sessions help your results last longer.
Potential Side Effects
Right after the treatment, patients can expect to see a bit of redness, tenderness, swelling or itching in the area that received treatment. These are normal reactions following injections. Any slight pain and visible side effects will fade away in a few days.
After six months to a year, as Restylane starts to break down, water will replace it. When Restylane is absorbed by the body, it converts into water and carbon dioxide. It disappears without a trace.
All of our faces change as we get older. Restylane offers you the chance to have natural beauty restored with your body’s own material. And you’ll love how you look.
If you want to keep the aging process from changing how you look, and return to a younger-looking, more vital you, consider having Restylane treatments.
