As we get older, many of us notice that our skin is not as supple and radiant as it used to be. This is due to a culmination of factors including the natural aging process, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices. Restylane® is a minimally invasive, non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to improve the appearance of age-related volume loss.
Preparation and Procedure
Dr. Balinger asks that patients stop taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as Advil, ibuprofen, Motrin, aspirin, Aleve, etc) about five days before their Houston TX Restylane® injections. This is important to reduce the risk of small bruises at the treatment site. You should also stop drinking and smoking at least a week before your treatment. Dr. Balinger administers Restylane® injections at his Houston plastic surgery center.
A topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure the patient’s comfort. Once the treatment areas have been identified, the filler will be injected into your skin using fine-gauge needles then massaged to reach the desired areas. Your injection specialist may administer several injections to achieve the objectives of the treatment. cold compresses will then be used to reduce inflammation after this treatment.
