Restylane® is a minimally-invasive dermal filler that uses hyaluronic acid to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines and improve the natural elasticity of the skin. Its active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring substance found in the body’s connective tissue, skin, and eyes and promotes hydration and elasticity. If you want to eliminate frown lines, reduce the appearance of acne scars, or increase the volume of your lips, a Restylane® treatment administered in our Fort Worth office is a fast and convenient way to achieve a younger and smoother-looking complexion.

There are several kinds of Restylane® fillers available at our Fort Worth office, including:
Depending on your goals and expectations, our Licensed Aesthetician and Certified Injector Jennifer Geyer may suggest one or more of the aforementioned Restylane® treatments to meet your exact needs.
A Restylane® treatment can be administered at our Fort Worth office, does not involve surgery, and involves a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Depending on the target areas, the injections may take 30-45 minutes. First, Jennifer will mark the injection sites and clean them with an antiseptic. Then, she will inject the Restylane® under the skin into the treatment areas using a small gauge needle or cannula.
Patients can return to their normal daily activities after the procedure, but Jennifer may advise against any vigorous exercise for 24 hours afterward. A Restylane® treatment typically lasts eight to 18 months, depending on anatomic location and filler used.
Like with any cosmetic procedure, Restylane® has potential risks or side effects, and these may include bruising, swelling, pain at the injection sites, itching, or infection. These side-effects generally resolve in one to two weeks.
Those in good health and who feel self-conscious about reduced volume in the cheeks or are bothered by facial scars and wrinkles are good candidates for a Restylane® procedure. Jennifer can recommend a customized treatment plan to ensure your cosmetic goals are met.
If you would like to explore minimally-invasive techniques to reduce wrinkles, laugh lines, dark circles under your eyes, or would like to augment your cheeks or lips, consider getting a Restylane® treatment at our Fort Worth office. Our medical staff can help you schedule a consultation with Jennifer to develop an individualized treatment plan for a younger-looking complexion.
