Restylane is an injectable dermal filler used to fill in facial lines and wrinkles, resulting in a smoother, plumper skin surface. This injectable product consists of hyaluronic acid found naturally in the skin and is also used to enhance the volume of the cheeks, lips, chin, and other facial areas.
Is Restylane right for me?
Most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area patients seeking Restylane injections have begun to notice signs of aging in their facial appearance. Their skin has begun to settle into lines and wrinkles due to loss of skin volume and elasticity. Patients tend to opt for this treatment because they dislike the look of their wrinkles, but aren't ready to commit to more invasive measures like facelift surgery. This technique can be used safely on most adults who are in good overall health. Unlike most practices you do not see a PA, Dr. Kapp performs all Restylane injections himself.
How much does Restylane cost?
The price of this treatment depends on the amount of gel needed to achieve the desired effect. Dermal filler prices in the West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens area average $350 to $500 per cc of Restylane gel used, making this among the most affordable cosmetic enhancement options. Treatments usually require between 1cc and 3ccs of dermal filler gel. Many patients opt for Restylane injections instead of more invasive and expensive treatments such as facelift surgery.
How involved is the Restylane procedure?
This treatment can be performed in just a few minutes. No anesthesia is needed, though a topical numbing cream can be used to help you feel more comfortable with the procedure. A thin needle is used to deliver the Restylane solution a clear gel into the targeted treatment area. The hyaluronic acid in the injection fills in fine lines and wrinkles. Afterwards, you are free to leave the office immediately.
How long is the recovery after Restylane?
There is no downtime required, and no bandages are needed to cover the treatment area. You may experience temporary swelling, redness, itchiness, or tenderness, though you can return to your daily routine immediately. Any side effects should subside within one to two days. Most West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens patients find that the full results of dermal filler injections can be seen within a week of the injection, and last up to six months.
