FDA-approved Restylane is a dermal filler treatment that is counted among the safest, most effective, and reliable anti-aging injectable dermatololgy iStock_000015713280Small-300x278 Restylane Dermal Filler Procedure Steps Houston Dermatologistprocedures.

The Restylane family of fillers includes Restylane, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L dermal fillers. These injections are developed to add instant fullness to the face creating a more youthful facial appearance.  

Before the Restylane dermal filler treatment, the injection provider will discuss the steps involved with the patient. The Restylane injectable treatment can be administered in around 20 minutes and does not have a particular downtime associated with it.

Board certified dermatologist, Dr. Tri H. Nguyen, provides Restylane treatments to patients in Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and surrounding communities.

Learn about Restylane

If a patient is considering the Restylane injectable treatment, they should perform an online search to gather information on the Restylane procedure from some high-authority websites. Besides, they should also review the dermatology practice website where they intend to visit for a Restylane consultation and treatment.  

Choose a Treatment Provider

After acquiring a fundamental knowledge of the Restylane treatment, the patient should choose a practice that is fully equipped to offer Restylane dermal filler injections safely and professionally.

The patient should seek a practice that operates under the supervision of a board-certified dermatologist. This will assure the patient that the practice will use the most advanced techniques and follow the latest safety protocols while administering the Restylane injections.

Disclosing Information

The patient should be open to sharing necessary information during the Restylane dermal filler consultation. The treatment provider will require information on whether the patient has undergone any injectable filler treatment in the past six months.

Furthermore, they will want to know if the patient presently uses any allergy medications, blood thinners, sleeping pills or muscle relaxants. In case the patient smokes, the Restylane treatment provider will ask them not to smoke for a specific duration before the treatment.

Restylane Appointment

It usually takes less than 20 minutes to administer Restylane dermal filler injections. The injection provider will identify the precise injection sites, and clean the region with a mild solution. They will apply a topical numbing gel to the targeted areas. The provider will use a fine gauge microneedle to administer the Restylane gel into the treatment areas on the face.

Depending on the patient’s rejuvenation goals for the face, they may require one or two injections. The patient will experience negligible discomfort due to the fine needle and the smooth consistency of the Restylane dermal filler gel.

Post-Treatment Guidelines

Following the treatment, the provider will guide the patient on the maintenance of the outcomes. The patient should not rub or massage the treated site for a minimum of 12 hours following the Restylane injections. Furthermore, they should not lie down for around four hours after the Restylane treatment.

These guidelines will help ensure that the filler gel does not wrongly move to another facial area. Experienced dermatologists at Texas Surgical Dermatology receive patients from Houston, Katy, Spring, The Woodlands, Texas, and nearby areas for Restylane filler treatment.
