Restylane® Lyft injected into the hands provides a volume increase while also reducing the appearance of wrinkles.

How Does Restylane® Work?
Collagen is the protein found in skin that gives its smooth and supple appearance. Over time, our bodies tend to produce less of this substance, leading to loss of skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles. Restylane® injections work deep into the dermal layers to restore support that has been lost as a result of collagen depletion. By so doing, it helps reverse signs of aging and rejuvenates and refreshes your skin appearance. Since Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid, it helps retain volume and moisture, producing a natural, smooth, skin appearance.
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.
