How is Restylane administered?
Restylane treatments are administered using a fine needle, and sessions can take up to 30 minutes. For your comfort, the area will be numbed using a topical numbing cream beforehand. Most Restylane products also contain a local anesthetic to make the experience more comfortable. When choosing your Restylane provider, it’s incredibly important to select a medical professional like Dr. Tansavatdi, who specializes in the face and has training and experience injecting fillers in a way that flatters your face and does not look overdone.
Who is a good candidate for Restylane?
If you’re in the Westlake Village and Thousand Oaks area and are interested in Restylane treatments, you may be an ideal candidate. Patients must be over the age of 21, in good health, and have reasonable expectations for the procedure. Restylane cannot be used if you have a bleeding disorder, are pregnant, or are breastfeeding. If you have a skin infection (such as a cold sore, pimple, or rash), you must wait until it is healed. Please let Dr. Tansavatdi know if you are allergic to lidocaine, and during the week before your procedure, you must avoid taking medications and supplements that prolong bleeding.
