Restylane

Restylane_PerlaneAs our bodies age, the years begin to creep across our face in the form of lines and wrinkles. If you struggle with these early signs of aging, Boston board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Peggy Howrigan offers treatments of Restylane in Wellesley. This injectable filler actually fills in depressions in the face for a younger appearance.

Restylane is a popular dermal filler among plastic surgeons since it naturally mimics your skin's own components. When injected beneath the surface of your skin, it fills the wrinkle and brings a smoothing, even effect to the treatment site. Wrinkles are diminished and you appear more vibrant.

Restylane: Am I a Good Candidate?

Restylane contains hyaluronic acid, which is a key hydrating component of your skin. As it mirrors some of the traits of your skin, most patients can successfully undergo a treatment of Restylane in Boston. Plastic surgeon Dr. Howrigan uses treatments of Restylane for:

  • works for mild to moderate facial wrinkles and folds
  • nasolabial folds
  • marionette lines
  • facial contouring and augmentation, like the lips

In your consultation with Dr. Howrigan, please be open about the areas on your face that bother you. Using your input and her own expertise, Dr. Howrigan will create a treatment plan that targets your individual needs and goals.

The Restylane Treatment

Before beginning your Restylane treatment, your face will be cleansed in preparation. Using a special technique, Dr. Howrigan will inject Restylane beneath the surface of your skin at the chosen treatment sites. An immediate improvement in the appearance of the wrinkle will be visible. Next, Dr. Howrigan may gently massage the site with her hand to ensure an even placement of the product.

Restylane Aftercare and Results

After your Restylane treatment, the skin at the treatment site may feel overly full and you may experience some redness. Both of these side effects are temporary, however, and will dissipate shortly. You will be given aftercare instructions which will ask you to avoid exercise for a day. You can, though, return to work and your normal routine as needed.

The beautiful effects and diminished wrinkles following your Restylane treatment can last up to a year for many patients. As your body naturally breaks down the injectable, you may wish to return to Dr. Howrigan's practice. This will help you maintain the benefits of Restylane long-term.
