Breaking Down the Different Types of Restylane® Fillers
Your skin may not seem as plump or smooth as it was when you were younger. Youthful skin appears as such due to a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid (HA). Loss of collagen and HA production over time is what leads to wrinkles and minor signs of aging. This is why board-certified dermatologist Dr. Adean Kingston offers advanced cosmetic injectables, such as Restylane.
Restylane offers a range of products that reduce the appearance of wrinkles and restore facial volume. Now you can learn about the different Restylane filler types by scheduling an assessment with an experienced dermatologist in Dallas, TX. Contact the skilled team at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC to get the process started.
How Restylane works
Do you have wrinkles or smile lines around your face and/or lost volume? Would you like to erase these creases and plump your skin without turning to invasive plastic surgery? Restylane offers a line of hyaluronic fillers that are especially good at delivering natural results. It works by replacing lost volume beneath the skin. The hyaluronic acid also attracts water, which preserves your results long-term. Although the treatment is temporary, no general anesthesia or incisions are needed.

How is Restylane administered?
An experienced dermatologist can tell you everything you need to know about Restylane injections. The staff at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC will ask about your medical history and allergies before making sure this is the right solution for your needs. We may also ask you to make facial expressions to see where you can benefit from facial injections. For example, some people seek chin and jawline improvement, while others want fuller lips or cheeks.
Injections are performed on an outpatient basis, usually on the same day as your consultation. Restylane is administered using fine needles, then followed with a cool compress for your comfort and to reduce bruising and swelling. Afterward, we give you post-procedure instructions for taking care of the treated area at home. Any adverse events can be treated if they arise.
How long does Restylane last?
It is best to keep in mind that Restylane is a temporary solution to restore facial volume. We may ask you to attend a follow-up appointment within six months so we can reassess your features. The great news is that Restylane injections usually last 6 months up to one year or more, based on the specific product used and how you metabolize it. During your appointment, a member of our team can let you know when to return for future treatments.
Restore facial volume and more
We understand there are a lot of options when it comes to dermal fillers. Not all products are created equal.
