How often will I need to get Restylane?
You will begin seeing results shortly after your first treatment, and results have been documented in clinical studies to last for up to 18 months. For most, it lasts around 6 months, give or take. Results are unique to each individual and the doctor will be able to evaluate your progress before deciding when another treatment should be administered.
What should I expect when I come to your office for Restylane?
Usually numbing cream or numbing injections are used, depending on patient preference. So, you may need to wait for the numbing to take effect. Results are fairly immediate and no downtime is required. Most people experience a little swelling or redness for a few hours afterward. In some, minor redness, swelling or bruising can last for several days or even up to a week, though it’s our experience that this is rare.
Why does it matter who does my Restylane in Los Angeles?
Anyone with a nursing credential and some training can perform injectable services. We keep our prices very competitive, while offering expert injections by only Board Certified Plastic Surgeons. The difference lies in years of specialized aesthetic training, level of experience, physical skill, and an eye for getting a good result that looks natural. For example, even children have nasolabial folds, so these should not be filled in to the point where they don’t exist, which would look odd and unnatural. With years of experience in injectable treatments, both Dr. Svehlak and Dr. Yamini are able to effectively gauge the amount of dermal filler to use, the brand/type and exactly where to put it to make it look great.
