Restylane Injections - San Diego, Inland Empire, Temecula
Injections and Fillers Information provided by Board Certified Plastic Surgeon serving San Diego and Riverside County.
Dr. Kincaid has years of experience helping Inland Empire patients with a wide assortment of non-surgical treatments. In addition to Botox® Cosmetics, Dr. Kincaid offers Restylane injectables. Please read the paragraphs below to learn more about this procedure.
Hyaluronic acid is a natural polysaccharide, that in appropriate form, is a versatile soft tissue filler. Currently available as the product name Restylane (also Restylane Fine Line and Perlane) distributed by the Medicis company, and Hylaform distributed by a company named Inamed. Hyaluronic acid is being widely used for the management of wrinkles, fine lines, contour deformities, and volumetric deficiencies of face, cheeks, and lips associated with aging, developmental anomalies, and certain diseases. Restylane/Hylaform does not represent the final answer in the search for an ideal tissue filler but provides a predictable, safe, user-friendly approach.
Restylane/Hylaform is usually injected when the patient is in the office, rather than requiring a hospital visit. The areas of the skin to be treated are first coated with a topical anesthetic, which is usually sufficient for the patient's comfort, although a nerve block may be preferable for some patients. Hyaluronic acid is a hydrophilic agent, which means that it attracts water much like a sponge. This expansion contributes to the final volume that is achieved. Therefore, underfilling is necessary, and many patients will benefit from a touchup session in about three weeks after the first treatment. Overfilling can lead to bumps and irregularities which, although rare, can represent a small, temporary cosmetic problem. For many, but certainly not all patients, the results can last up to six months. It is especially effective for the nasolabial folds, lip augmentation, and areas of contour deformities. It is also an ideal adjunct for Botox® Cosmetics treatment and is frequently used in conjunction with Botox® Cosmetics to correct lines and creases that persist.
