Restylane® is another filler option to replenish the loss of hyaluronic acid in our skin. Restylane® injections fill out soft tissue defects, smoothing wrinkles or adding volume under the skin and giving you a smooth, youthful appearance.
How to Get the Best Results With Your Filler Treatment:
Because some redness and swelling is normal following filler injections, be sure to schedule your appointment three weeks prior to any special event. Swelling and redness should diminish within 24 hours. There is a chance of bruising with any injection, especially with those prone to bruising.
To reduce this chance, be sure to discontinue herbals like vitamin E, St John’s wort, and ginkgo biloba several days prior to your appointment. Other medications such as ibuprofen (Advil) and aspirin can also increase bleeding and should also be discontinued five days prior to your appointment. If these are prescribed for a health condition, consult the prescribing physician before making any changes. Mineral makeup can be applied immediately following the injections and can be used in the following days to cover any redness or bruising.
