Restylane injections are performed in the office at Gordon Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream can be put on the treatment areas for increased comfort if desired. The product is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and then massaged so it fills the needed areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane formula is injected the same way but on different areas of the face targeted based on your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane procedure is complete, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what is being treated so ask your injector about what you should expect. The injection sites may be slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may appear, but this may be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for the first night. Many patients will notice some changes right after treatment, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injection treatments typically last about a year based on the exact product selected.
