Restylane

Conveniently located to serve Boston

Gain a youthful appearance without going through surgical procedures with Restylane in Boston. Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that reduces moderate and harsh lines and wrinkles, adds volume, and enhances the contours of your face. Enjoy natural-looking results and reverse the effects of facial aging without a lengthy recovery process.

What Is Restylane?

Restylane is an FDA-approved hyaluronic-acid-based filler. It is biodegradable and can be safely absorbed by the body. This non-animal-stabilized hyaluronic acid filler is similar to the naturally occurring hyaluronic acid in our connective tissues.

Restylane is usually injected in the midface region to augment thinning lips; reduce the appearance of marionette lines, parentheses lines, perioral lip lines, or the nasolabial folds; and restore volume to areas like the cheeks, temples, and jawline. Results can last from six months up to a year or longer.

Am I an Ideal Candidate for Restylane?

You are a good candidate for Restylane injections if you are 21 years of age or older and in good overall health. If you have a known allergy to gram-positive bacterial proteins or are pregnant, immunocompromised, or taking blood thinners, you may not be compatible for Restylane treatments.

Your Restylane Consultation

To determine your compatibility for Restylane treatments, a physical examination of your target areas will be performed during a consultation. Your medical history will be reviewed, including current medications, underlying conditions, and sensitivities. Your aesthetic goals will be discussed in order to create a customized treatment plan.

The Procedure

The injection procedure for Restylane is quick and easy. The target areas will be cleaned with antiseptic, and injection sites will be identified. A local anesthetic may be administered to eliminate any discomfort during the process, though in many cases, Restylane already contains lidocaine.

Injections of Restylane will be delivered to the target areas, creating the precise volume needed to achieve the desired outcome. It can take several minutes to an hour to complete the procedure.

Restylane Aftercare

After your Restylane injections, you may experience minor temporary swelling and bruising at the injection site. You may also feel some tenderness, mild discomfort, or itching on the treated areas, but these should resolve quickly.

You can often resume your normal activities right away without any need for recovery time or downtime, making this treatment incredibly convenient. Some patients choose to rest for a day. Initial results can be seen immediately, and the full results can be seen after a week.

How Much Does Restylane Cost?

The cost of your Restylane treatment will depend on a number of factors. The price may be impacted by the amount of filler used and the number of syringes used. To maintain results, you may be able to come in for follow-up treatments, which can also affect the overall cost.
