Dermal Fillers

All of our fillers are made from Hyaluronic Acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is hydrophilic meaning it draws water into the gel substance. Different from creams, filler goes beneath the surface to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and folds. Some common places for filler are: cheeks, vertical lip lines, corner lines, marionette lines (corner of mouth down toward jaw line), and parentheses lines (fold between the bottom of the nose towards the mouth.) Most soft tissue fillers have lidocaine to help reduce discomfort during your procedure.

Restylane® Treatments at Elite

What is the Restylane® treatment like?
Restylane® is injected in small amounts under your skin to fill creases, lines, wrinkles or folds. It can also be injected around the lip area to create volume, resulting in a more youthful appearance. A skin test is not necessary prior to treatment, so treatment with Restylane® can be performed at any time. In order to optimize your comfort, the treatment area may be anesthetized with a topical cream or anesthetic block.

What can I expect following treatment with Restylane®?
You can resume normal activities following Restylane® treatment. The most commonly reported side effect has been redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within a few hours or, at most, a day or two. Results are immediately evident. Lines, wrinkles and folds look softer and your skin looks smooth.

How long do the results of Restylane® last?
Depending on many factors, such as your lifestyle, age, location it is injected, and skin structure results of Restylane® injections may last as long as six months to a year or more. You may require a touch up treatment 2 to 4 weeks after the first treatment to achieve your desired result. Restylane® treatment to enhance the lips is reported to last much longer than treatment using standard collagen filler. When the effect of the treatment begins to diminish, you can replenish the area as needed.
