Soften Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane injections take place inside the minor procedures room at Adean Kingston, M.D., PLLC. A numbing cream is applied for increased patient comfort. The product is injected into your skin through a fine needle and massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way but on different areas of the face to address your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect with Restylane®
When your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to your normal daily activities. Your recovery will depend on what is being treated so talk to Dr. Kingston about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this usually goes away in a few days. Bruising can be a factor, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid firmly rubbing your face and sleep upright for the first night. Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injections often last up to a year, depending on the exact product used.
