What is Restylane?
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler designed to temporarily diminish fine lines around the mouth and
nose. An extremely versatile treatment option, it’s used to smooth nasolabial folds, which span from the
nose to the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines, which run from the corners of the mouth down to the
jawline. In addition, it can also be used to successfully correct sagging jowls, a recessive chin, hollow
cheekbones and bags under the eyes.
How does Restylane work?
As we age, our skin begins to lose naturally occurring components that keep it young and wrinkle-free,
including hyaluronic acid. This loss causes the skin to develop permanent lines and wrinkles. With an active
ingredient of hyaluronic acid, Restylane temporarily replenishes the skin’s lost supply, causing the tissue
beneath the surface to swell. In this way, the injectable smooths out fine lines and wrinkles, restores lost
volume and delivers a rejuvenated overall appearance.
What can I expect during Restylane treatments?
During your initial consultation for Restylane in Manhattan Beach at Marcus Medical Spa, our highly trained and experienced
experts will begin by carefully evaluating your facial anatomy and signs of aging as a whole. From there, we
will compose a custom treatment plan designed to use the filler to smooth the fine lines and wrinkles that
concern you most, while maintaining an extremely natural and organic appearance.
During the actual injections, we will first apply a local anesthetic to ensure your comfort, before
administering the filler into the target areas with utter precision to achieve the exact look you desire. In
general, you can expect the entire treatment to last approximately 30 minutes, with a follow-up session
every six to twelve months.
