Give Yourself the Gift of Youth
Worried about the appearance of your facial wrinkles? Belmont Plastic Surgery offers Restylane, an injectable gel that can reduce their appearance and make you look years younger without changing your face dramatically. Dermal fillers are an increasingly popular method of treating the appearance of facial wrinkles and lines. Restylane is a family of injectable cosmetic treatments that includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L. These products are made with hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in your body that is not derived from animal sources. When injected, this gel cushions facial features that have lost volume or elasticity and temporarily reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Today is No Day For Wrinkles
If you have wrinkles or creases that have formed on your face due to aging, surgical procedures, environmental factors, or other causes, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Feledy may recommend injecting a substance called Restylane into these areas. Restylane is an FDA-approved, injectable dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance produced by your body that breaks down over time. Restylane is categorized as a non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid and has one of the safest track records among other similar products. Restylane is designed to act like your own body's naturally produced hyaluronic acid and is used for smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds (more commonly known as laugh or smile lines).
Slow Down the Signs of Aging
Restylane results last a few months, often enough time for patients to see their confidence and self-esteem go up as their skin takes on a more youthful appearance. The treatment does not last longer than a facelift, but can have similar effects. It might be your best bet if you’re looking for visible results but don’t want surgery.
Wrinkle Control Without Surgery
Beauty isn’t just skin deep, and that’s why it can be so hard to maintain. While many people try various beauty treatments and products for their looks, only a few get consistent results. Restylane injections are suitable for nearly everyone who wishes to fill in their wrinkles and folds. Restylane is especially effective in resolving the following problem areas:
These products are also ideal for lip augmentation. If you’re unhappy with your appearance due to wrinkles or volume loss, we encourage you to come in for a consultation at our Washington DC-area practice! Our board-certified plastic surgeons know how to make your dreams of looking younger come true.
Specializing in You
Restylane Treatments usually take about 30 minutes. Your Washington DC Restylane injection specialist will discuss your treatment goals and options, apply cleansers and a topical anesthetic, and inject the product with a fine needle. The solution absorbs into your skin over time to give it back its natural elasticity and volume, effectively diminishing fine lines and wrinkles. Patients can expect to experience some mild redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness for one or two days following treatment. Repeated Restylane treatments may be necessary to provide the best results.
Younger Looking Skin
Many patients receive Restylane injections during their lunch breaks and easily return to work. It takes about a week for your skin to absorb Restylane fully. When you receive treatment, you’ll need to avoid exercise and saunas, as well as excessive sun exposure. Any discomfort that you will experience is mild and temporary. Following treatments with Restylane Washington DC patients may experience redness, swelling, and bruising, but any tenderness should disappear within a few days. Be sure to avoid rubbing the injected area. In rare instances, people may experience allergic reactions or red nodules.
Turning Back Time
Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body. Hyaluronic acid provides long-lasting results for moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. Depending on your lifestyle and body chemistry, most patients find that the results last between three and five months. Most people have Restylane injections two to three times per year in order to maintain the results. Fillers such as Restylane are frequently used on other parts of your face, such as lips, nose, ears, and hands, to restore lost volume or symmetry.
You Deserve the Best

Although Restylane and its cousins, Perlane and Restylane-L, are effective treatments for fine lines and wrinkles, like any injectable filler, they can have side effects. These may include swelling, redness, bruising, itching, irritation, and pain. Fortunately, these side effects tend to be mild or temporary; in fact, most patients find that they disappear after one or two days. For more serious side effects, contact Dr. Feledy right away because early detection can help avoid lasting damage.
Since you’re reading about a cosmetic procedure, contacting your insurance company to ensure they cover Restylane injections is a good idea. Depending on where you live and what coverage your plan offers, there may be restrictions on how often these treatments can be performed.
The short answer is yes, and that’s why it’s so important to speak with your doctor. There are a variety of similar injectable fillers, including Juvederm and Sculptra, which work by adding volume to facial features that have lost volume or elasticity over time. These fillers are an excellent solution for patients who want their skin to look younger but aren’t concerned about drastic results or extended downtime.
