Testimonial: “I've been going to Dr. Leong for the past few years. He is an amazing doctor! I am always very satisfied with the results. I've gone to a couple other doctors in the past but none of them compare to Dr. Leong!” – Marc
As the body ages, several key compounds responsible for youthful skin begin to decline, including collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that helps restore HA, renewing lost volume and restoring a plump, radiant glow. A variety of Restylane formulations exist to help rejuvenate the lips, the cheeks, the midface, the temples, the brow and the forehead. Call our Morgantown WV offices today to find out which one is right for you!
What is Restylane?
The function of hyaluronic acid in the body is to bind with water, which adds softness and suppleness to the skin. As we age, HA slowly gets depleted, leaving the skin prone to wrinkles and hollowness. Stress, the environment, sun damage and heredity can also contribute to a decline in HA. Restylane is able to safely restore hyaluronic acid reserves, improving facial contours that have lost their roundness. Restylane can help treat:
- Nasolabial folds
- Marionette lines
- Vertical lip creases
- Loss of facial fat volume
- Sunken cheeks and temples
- Depleted lip volume
- Glabellar creases
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Furrows and folds
- Indented scars
Who makes a good candidate for the procedure?
Potential Restylane clients should have good skin elasticity, as the filler cannot combat skin laxity. It is ideal, however, for treating smile lines, vertical lip lines, creases, folds and furrows that make you look older than you feel. All candidates should be healthy, and have realistic expectations for their results. Dr. Leong will meet with you in Morgantown WV to assess your individual case and determine which treatments will be most beneficial for accomplishing your cosmetic goals.
Is there any downtime for Restylane?
Restylane treatments take just half an hour on average, and require no downtime. After your session, you may massage the skin and apply a cold compress to help ease any tenderness or swelling that might have occurred at the injection site. Results can sometimes last up to one year, depending on the formulation chosen. Dr. Leong will schedule your Morgantown WV follow up visits to help you maintain your gorgeous new appearance.
