Smooth Away Facial Lines and Wrinkles with Radiesse and Restylane
Facial Plastic Surgeons Ross A. Clevens, MD, FACS and Renata Khelemsky, MD offer their patients many nonsurgical facial rejuvenation options including Restylane and Radiesse.
After years of safe and successful use in Canada and Europe, Restylane is an FDA-approved cosmetic filler that has gained popularity here in the United States. Restylane is intended for wrinkle correction and lip enhancements, and is ideal for correcting thin superficial lines around the mouth, as well as forehead and smile lines. While there are many injectable fillers on the market today, many of them have drawbacks ranging from allergic reactions to short life spans.
Since Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on natural substances, there is no need for a skin test to test for allergic reactions as there is with collagen. The gel is carefully injected in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin. Restylane lasts 6-12 months as compared with collagen that lasts about 3-4 months.
