What is Restylane? – Chicago, Itasca & Naperville

Similar to Botox in Itasca, Restylane is made of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) which can be found naturally in our body. As we age, the hyaluronic acid content in our bodies tends to decrease, which contributes to the loss of elasticity of our skin, ultimately leaving us with loose skin that we didn’t once have. In addition, as we age, the volume of fat in our face tends to decrease and shift. Both of these problems result in lines and wrinkles. An injection of Restylane at problem spots on your face like the nasolabial folds, the corner of your mouth and lips will restore the volume and reduce these fine lines to almost invisible levels and give you the appearance of smooth skin. Since there are no incisions, the downtime is generally very brief and most patients return to work following the injections.

What Can Restylane Treat?

Restylane is an ideal treatment for many different areas. It helps smooth away stubborn facial wrinkles and can even provide subtle lip enhancement. If you have frustrating lines around your mouth, Restylane is an ideal option to smooth lines. It can also add volume to the cheeks and lift them for a brighter, younger appearance. Finally, some patients even utilize Restylane in order to reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands.

Side Effects of Restylane

Rest assured that the side effects of Restylane are minimal and won’t require the disruption of your daily routine. When Restylane is initially injected, you may feel slight discomfort at the injection site. As a precaution, Dr. Ashpole numbs this area with a topical anesthetic before beginning. The side effects of this procedure are minimal. Slight redness, tenderness, swelling, itching or bruising may occur. If present, it usually lasts less than a week and is easily camouflaged with make-up.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Who is at risk for developing varicose veins?

    Women naturally have a higher chance of developing varicose veins, especially women who are pregnant. However, it is important to keep in mind that roughly 42 percent of men experience varicose veins by the time they turn 60. Family history is one of the biggest factors that determine whether or not you will develop varicose veins.

    If you don’t get your varicose veins removed, they may result in skin sores, skin ulcers, blood clots or even deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is best to get your veins treated as soon as possible to reduce your risk of developing complications down the road.

    There is a misconception that when Botox is administered, it results in a frozen or numb facial appearance. In simpler terms, patients may feel like they will no longer be able to make facial expressions. This is why it is important to find a qualified surgeon with years of experience administering Botox, as they will be able to judge how much Botox you need and help judge the size of your muscles.

    Botox is extremely effective in temporarily reducing wrinkles! Whether you have forehead lines that you don’t like or you want to get rid of frown lines or crow’s feet, the highly purified toxins in Botox can help erase them!

    The side effects of Botox in Itasca are typically mild and short-lived. You can expect slight bruising, and, in one to five percent of cases, Botox may cause mild droopiness of the eyelid or the eyebrow. This usually goes away within two weeks.

    Though it’s often the best option if your condition has progressed, you can also take measures to avoid varicose and spider veins besides vein treatment. To reduce your chances of developing unsightly veins, it’s important to exercise, avoid standing or sitting for long periods of time, maintain a healthy weight, and/or use compression stockings.
