Find Out What You Really Need to Know About Little Rock Restylane Treatments.

Little Rock Restylane treatments are a growing favorite for enhancing and sculpting lips, reducing facial wrinkles around the mouth and nose, repairing damaged areas around the eyes, and general facial contouring of the cheek and mouth.

We'll give you an overview of the procedure and some recommendations on choosinga doctor if you decide to have the treatments.

Little Rock Restylane procedure.

Restylane is a clear liquid gel made from a non-animal based hyaluronic acid.That's a lot of technical jargon for what is really a natural sugar compound.

Most often, Restylane injections are administered in a doctor's office with a local anesthesia. You may feel some pain and discomfort from the needle during the injection.

The entire 3-step process takes from a few minutes up to around 30 minutes. You are able to leave the doctor's office shortly after the procedure.

The 3 Step Process

  • Antiseptic is applied as the doctor selects the injection points for each area to be treated.

  • The doctor calculates the correct amount of Restylane needed.

  • The Restylane is then injected beneath the skin. The Restylane acts like a water magnet which helps preserve the renewed volume of the skin.

Results are noticeable in about a week. Restylane is much better at reducing or eliminating deep wrinkles than any other treatment available.

Recovery after Little Rock Restylane treatment.

Swelling in the treated areas may last 2 or 3 days. You may be told to stay out of the sun, but all other normal activities can be resumed.

After recovery, wrinkles should be reduced by about 80%. Just remember that Restylane treatment is a temporary solution, and some follow up treatments may be needed.

Are there any side effects?

The most common side effects of Restylane include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, redness, and pain at the injection points. Infrequently, you mayexperience muscle weakness, which resolves itself within days, or in some cases, months after the procedure.

Be sure to discuss any possible risks with your doctor during the initial consultation.
