Are you frustrated with the lines and wrinkles around your lips and eyes? Do you feel self-conscious about your appearance, always wondering if people are seeing your beauty or examining your signs of aging? If this sounds like you, call Davis Facial Plastic Surgery. Dr. Dean G. Davis, a dual-board certified facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon and otolaryngologist, specializes in Restylane®/Restylane® Silk treatments for those living in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and surrounding areas in Florida.
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® works by restoring an individual’s natural moisturizers or hyaluronic acid, which helps to give the skin of the face and body a more youthful fullness. Hyaluronic acid used by plastic surgeons is derived from plants rather than animals for use as an injectable filler. The patented injectable filler product adds volume to a patient’s moderate to severe facial folds and wrinkles such as marionette lines located near the corners of the mouth. Also known as nasolabial folds, these creases often occur from the nose to the corners of the mouth in older individuals.
What is Restylane® Silk?
The newest form of Restylane® is Restylane® Silk, which is a smooth, silky formulation of smaller particle hyaluronic acid gel. Hyaluronic acid is commonly found in the body’s second layer of skin to provide an additional structure that prevents wrinkling. Restylane® Silk is designed to add fullness to the facial lips, in addition to correcting lipstick or smoker lines around the lips.
Benefits of Restylane®
There are several benefits of Restylane® products that reduce the signs of aging in male or female patients, including:
- Improved skin fullness near the eyes or mouth
- Reduction of scarring from injuries or acne
- Younger and softer looking skin
How is Restylane® Administered?
At Davis Facial Plastic Surgery, Restylane® is injected directly into the patient’s skin near creases and folds with an extremely fine needle. After the injection, Dr. Davis may massage a patient’s skin near the injection site to optimize contouring. A Restylane® procedure is simple, convenient and offers quick results.
Preparing for Restylane®
No special preparation is necessary for this convenient and quick treatment that requires only 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
There is no downtime after a Restylane® treatment because it is a minimally invasive procedure that only requires a needle injection. Patients may experience some mild symptoms after the injection such as bruising or numbness. Within three days, patients notice improvements to their skin that can last up to six months.
How much does Restylane® Cost?
Because a Restylane® treatment is considered an elective skin rejuvenation procedure, most insurance companies do not offer reimbursement. To make Restylane® treatment affordable and accessible for more patients, Davis Facial Plastic Surgery accepts financing for skin rejuvenation treatments through CareCredit®. Patients with questions concerning the cost of Restylane® treatments should contact Davis Facial Plastic Surgery today. You can pay by major credit card, personal check, or cash.
Are Restylane® Injections Right for Me?
Dr. Davis can use Restylane® injections on facial cheeks, chins and lips because the treatments are effective for reducing folds, wrinkles and creases on the face. A Restylane® treatment is not recommended for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Individuals with certain medical conditions such as skin infections or taking medications are not candidates for Restylane® injections.
What to Expect During Your Consultation
The purpose of a consultation at Davis Facial Plastic Surgery is to determine a patient’s medical history, including allergies and skin conditions. Dr. Davis discusses a patient’s desired outcomes concerning Restylane® treatment to understand how the patient wants to look after receiving the injectable filler. While Dr. Davis is explaining the Restylane® procedure process, including how much of the product is needed, it’s a good time for patients to ask questions. Dr. Davis will provide an honest evaluation about how Restylane® treatment can improve certain areas of the face to reduce the appearance of creases, folds, and wrinkles.
