RESTYLANE

Restylane is the first FDA-approved filler in the U.S. for any age

One of the first signs we notice with aging is the loss of volume.  As we age our fat pads lessen, and we have significant bone loss. As a result, the skin losses the supple plumpness and youthfulness, this is why we start seeing aging, wrinkling skin and lips that are thinning and flattening.  Our goal is to slow down your aging naturally.

Restylane is an injectable that smooths moderate to severe wrinkles, adds volume to facial tissue, and restores youthful contours. This product is versatile enough to be used for nasolabial folds, laugh lines, marionette lines, lipstick lines, corner of the mouth downturn, chin depression, and lip enhancement. Restylane is the only filler to be used for Tear Troughs, as well as an expert injector. Using Restylane in this area is considered “off label.” This product works by replacing volume lost with the absence of hyaluronic acid, which keeps skin full and elastic. You can expect immediate results with Restylane products. Patients report that these results last up to 18 months with a follow-up treatment at 4.5 to 9 months.

RESTYLANE SILK

For a silky, smooth, natural-looking smile

Looking for that silky soft injectable for your lips? Restylane Silk has many great properties to consider.

Designed specifically for lips, feathering around the lips, and smoker lines around the lips and mouth, Restylane Silk is specifically designed for subtle lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth in patients over 21 years of age.

Just like the other members of the Restylane family, Restylane Silk is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid — a sugar that is naturally present in your skin. Like other areas of the face, the lips and skin surrounding the mouth show signs of aging as an individual gets older.

Through my experience patients are very pleased with the results for 12 months.

RESTYLANE LYFT

Natural looking fullness for your cheeks!

As we age and our faces lose volume, some of us begin to look for ways to regain more structure in our cheeks without surgery. Restylane Lyft is an injectable hyaluronic acid gel used to correct volume loss and treat wrinkles in the face. With immediate results. With it’s superior lifting power our natural cheek is lifted allowing the mid face to appear less saggy. The younger you is celebrated. A complimentary consultation will educate you on which fillers are right for you.

Restylane Lyft is an FDA-approved filler indicated to provide fullness to cheeks and add volume to correct and smooth smile lines (nasolabial folds), lasting about 12 months.

Pre- and Post-Treatment Instructions

Pre-Treatment Instructions

7 Days Before Your Treatment (to prevent bruising): AVOID blood thinning over-the-counter medications such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, and Aleve. Also avoid herbal supplements such as Garlic, Vitamin E, Turmeric, Ginko Biloba, St. John’s Wart, and Omega-3 Fish Oil.

3 Days Before Your Treatment: AVOID topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinols, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, Alpha Hydroxy Acid, or any “Anti-aging” products. Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or the use of hair removal cream on the area to be treated. 

24 Hours Before Your Treatment: AVOID alcoholic beverages and exercise (to limit risk of bruising).

You must be off any antibiotics for 3 days prior to your appointment. If this is not possible, you need to reschedule your appointment.

Do not use Dermal Fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any of its ingredients, or suffer from any neurological disorders.

Day of Treatment

Notify your provider with any changes to your health history or medications (antibiotics, vitamins, supplement, etc) since your last appointment. This includes new autoimmune conditions, cancer treatments, recent vaccinations, and/or dental procedures. 

If you have previously suffered from cold sores, please inform your injector prior to or during your treatment. There is a chance the needle punctures could contribute to a recurrence. Prescription medication is available that may minimize recurrence of cold sores. 

Please do not wear makeup on the day of treatment on the area being treated.

To maximize your comfort during the procedure a topical anesthetic may be applied (especially when treating the lips), please arrive 30 minutes earlier than your appointment and inform the front desk staff.

During Your Treatment

Dermal Fillers are Hyaluronic Acid products that are injected into the skin to soften creases or folds, support areas of volume loss, or contour specific facial areas. Local numbing medications and ice may be used to maximize your comfort during the procedure. Most patients will have some mild discomfort typically associated with needle injections. 

Tips for Decreasing Bruising

Consume fresh pineapple (contains the enzyme bromelain). Bromelain is a naturally occurring anti-inflammatory that can decrease swelling, tenderness, pain, and bruising.

Start OTC Vitamin C 1, 000 mg supplements 2x/day (AM and PM) 1 week before your appointment. This will help strengthen the walls of your blood vessels. 

Consider starting OTC supplement Arnica the week of your appointment as it has been shown to decrease inflammation and bruising after treatment.

After Your Treatment

You may experience a mild to moderate amount of stinging or soreness post injection. You may also have some redness, swelling, or bruising. This will normally last less than 7 days. 

Some filler may feel firm and bumpy to the touch; it will begin to soften and feel better over the next few weeks. 

Ice should be used immediately after treatment to reduce swelling/bruising. Small bruises sometimes occur and should resolve in 5-10 days. You can also purchase Alastin’s InHance at Aesthetics By Eileen that can shorten the time of bruising. 

You may purchase Jane Iredale Corrective Colors palette to help camouflage all stages of bruising. Oxygenetix is available for purchase at Aesthetics By Eileen and can be used immediately post treatment to conceal signs of treatment. 

Please Avoid After Treatment

Do not rub or massage the treated area for 48 hours after your treatment.

Do not apply makeup or lipstick to the area treated until tomorrow. This will reduce your risk of infection or any other adverse reaction. 

Do not do strenuous exercise for 48 hours post treatment. This will minimize the risk of raising your blood pressure and therefore, reduce the risk of temporary bruising and infection. 

Avoid facials or saunas for 48 hours after your treatment.

Avoid alcohol for the next 48 hours to reduce risk of bruising. 

Do not plan any other facial treatments (Laser, Hydrafacial, Microneedling, etc) for the next 2 weeks.

Treatment Results/Expectations & Follow-Up

If you require more product to touch up/adjust your treatment results, it can be done after the full 14 days (after inflammation has resolved). 

**Please call the office if you experience significant pain, redness, or mottling (uneven reddened or discolored patches on the skin)**

Eileen’s Experience Counts: butterfly

When Restylane was 1st FDA approved in 2004, Eileen was the 1st trained nurse injector in the triangle area. Previous to Restylane, Eileen injected collagen for 10 years. This gel product works well for a lot of Eileen’s patients because a small amount of product injected in specific areas creates immediate results that give her patients their desired look, whether it be a full correction or minor enhancements. Eileen recommends that new patients make a complimentary consultation appointment to discuss the different treatment options and results that can be achieved with each dermal filler. Eileen has been a national nurse injector trainer for the Restylane family of products since 2009.
