For example, Restylane Silk is used for fine wrinkles and detailed shaping, while Restylane Lyft is used for restoring volume to cheeks and smoothing severe wrinkles. Whatever your aesthetic concerns may be, there will be a Restylane product to address them in the most effective and natural looking way.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane is a gel that contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural polysaccharide (sugar molecule) that occurs in the body. As we age, the hyaluron in our body—which provides strength and hydration—decreases, which causes skin volume to decrease and wrinkles to occur. When Restylane gel is injected into the skin, the hyaluronic acid attracts and binds to water molecules.

Since each molecule can hold 1,000 times its weight in water, using Restylane has the ability to create plump, youthful looking skin and lips. Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism, and disappears without any residue.

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.
