Under Eye Filler Treatment in Woodland Hills, CA
Fight the Signs of Facial Aging with Under Eye Filler Treatment and Reveal a Younger Looking You!
Restylane-L is a product that can add fullness and volume to the under-eye area of your skin in order to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It can also be used in other areas of your face such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
It is a clear gel formulation made up of hyaluronic acid. It is specifically formulated to act much like your body’s very own source of hyaluronic acid.
What is a Dermal Filler?
A dermal filler can help to diminish any facial lines and restore fullness and volume within the face. As we begin to age, we tend to lose the subcutaneous fat in our faces which can cause smile lines and crow’s feet in our faces to become far more apparent. The facial skin will also stretch as we age which can add to the loss of facial volume.
What Dermal Fillers Can Do
Dermal fillers can do many excellent things. Some of the things they can do include, but are not limited to:
• Enhance shallow contours
• Decrease or remove the shadow of the lower lids
• Soften facial creases and wrinkles
• Reconstruct contour deformities present in the face
• Improve the appearance of recessed scar
• Plump thin lips
Dermal fillers are a revolutionary and helpful treatment, especially in the early signs of aging. They can also add value if you have undergone facial rejuvenation surgery.
What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid, contrary to popular relief, is a natural substance that is often found in the fluids in the joints and eyes. It essentially acts as a lubricant or cushion of sorts in the joints for the other tissues. Different forms of hyaluronic acid are used for cosmetic purposes.
It can also help several conditions such as cataracts, osteoarthritic, and more.
How Does Restylane-L Work to Help Treat the Under Eye?
Restylane-L works by putting volume into the area underneath your skin where you have lost collagen and tissue resulting in sunken eyes and dark circles. This filler helps to smooth out and lift skin making it look much plumper. The hyaluronic acid will cling to your skin and the water within the acid will make it look much more voluminous. The acid will also attract even more water to preserve the plump look.
The Procedure for Restylane
Restylane-L is actually a very common cosmetic procedure that is also very easy. In fact, it involves no incisions at all which means it can be done right in your doctor’s office. It is most commonly done with local anesthesia to minimize any discomfort you could experience.
Depending on how much you’re having done, these injections can take only minutes or up to half an hour.
The Targeted Areas for Restylane
While many don’t know this, there are several different types of Restylane that can be used for different areas of your face. This includes facial folds, cheeks, lips, and even wrinkles. While they are all hyaluronic acid-based, each one has been designed with a different purpose in mind.
• Restylane Defyne is used for wrinkles near the mouth and nose.
• Restylane Refyne is used for wrinkles that are from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
• Restylane is used for facial folds and wrinkles, tear troughs, and lip augmentation.
• Restylane Lyft is for cheek augmentation and midface contour. It is also used for laugh lines.
• Restylane Silk is used for lip augmentation and wrinkles around the mouth.
Are There Any Risks of Side Effects?
Any procedures will carry potential risks or side effects. Restylane is no different to this. The risk of this treatment can include:
• Pain at the injection site
• Itching at the injection site
• Allergic reaction
• Bruising at the injection site
Usually, these side effects will resolve in 7 to 18 days. Though, this will depend on what area you have had treated. It is also very important to remember that people on blood-thinning medications are usually not advised to use a product such as Restylane. If you have ever experienced serious side effects from any specific drugs or medications, make sure that you speak to your doctor about whether or not you will be a good candidate for this type of treatment.
What You Can Expect After Restylane
When it comes to what you can expect after a Restylane treatment, it is important to know that healing time will vary from person to person. It will also depend on how many injections you received and where you received them. You can expect some swelling, redness, or bruising.
However, this is usually gone in a week or so. During your healing time, you should also try to limit your sun exposure in order to prevent any added bruising or swelling. You can also return to work afterward depending on how many injections you’ve had. If you’ve had multiple, you should consider taking a few days off in order to recover.
Usually, it takes around a week to be able to begin seeing the effects of the products. It is important to know that filler isn’t permanent. This means you will have to undergo more rounds of treatment in order to maintain the results.
Preparing for a Restylane Treatment
In order to be able to minimize the bruising from your Restylane treatment, two weeks prior to your treatment, you need to stop taking any:
• Fish oil
• Vitamin E
• St John’s Wort
Taking arnica before and after the procedure can help with swelling or bruising.
