Wrinkles and folds are some of the most common and troublesome signs of aging. Restylane-L® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that helps with these problem areas. So many men and women in Birmingham, Alabaster, and surrounding areas of Alabama love Restylane-L®, that it is the most popular Galderma product at Dermatologists of Birmingham.
What is Restylane®-L?
Restylane-L® is a dermal filler that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that occurs naturally in your skin. HA is responsible for keeping your skin hydrated and plump, and it works by binding with water molecules. Young skin has an abundance of HA that is regenerated over time. As you get older, your body produces less HA, and this is one of the reasons why your skin sags and forms wrinkles.
Benefits of Restylane®-L?
Restylane-L® is the most popular Galderma product at Dermatologists of Birmingham, and our patients absolutely love it. Some of the benefits include:
- Reduction of obvious signs of aging, such as nasolabial folds
- FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years old
- No downtime
- Treatment takes less than 30 minutes
- Results last for up to six months
- Contains lidocaine to improve patient comfort
How Does Restylane-L® Work?
Restylane-L® injections replenish the HA in your skin. The HA then binds with water to hydrate and plump your skin. Injections are made along the wrinkles and folds on your face, and you can see an immediate improvement. Full results happen gradually, so it’s not obvious that you had the injections.
Candidates for Restylane-L®
Most everyone in the Birmingham area is a great candidate for our Restylane-L® treatments. You shouldn’t have dermal fillers if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant. You should also avoid Restylane-L® injections if you have a history of allergic reactions to dermal fillers. Restylane-L® is not the best option for patients under 18 years old or over 65 years old, and you must be at least 21 to have lip injections with Restylane-L®.
What to Expect from Restylane-L®
Restylane-L® is administered with an ultra-thin needle, and the gel contains lidocaine to numb the area. You may only feel a slight pressure or prick as the needle is inserted. Several injections are required to achieve a consistent and natural result. After the injections, you may notice some pinpoint bleeding from the injection sites, as well as swelling, tenderness, and bruising that is localized around each injection site. No downtime is needed. Avoid rubbing the area for the first few days, as this may redistribute the gel and produce unexpected results.
How Much Does Restylane-L® Cost in Birmingham?
The cost of your Restylane-L® treatments is based upon the number of injections. We can most accurately provide this information after your consultation. Our payment options include cash, checks, major credit cards, and convenient financing options.
