Restylane and Restylane Fine lines are hyaluronic acid-based fillers that restore and enhance facial volume, smoothing away fine lines. Dr. Torgerson finds the Restylane products ideal for treating lips and addressing fine lines (i.e. “smokers” lines around the lips) that form over time. Restylane injectable filler can also be used to reduce the look of crow’s-feet around the eyes. A popular choice amongst patients, Restylane-L comes with lidocaine, providing a more comfortable treatment experience. The Perlane and Restylane family of products are owned by Medicis, a division of Valeant Canada.
Dr. Cory Torgerson is passionate about injectable filler, so he is the only individual who injects Restylane at our Yorkville clinic. Our Clients deserve the best results possible, and knowing that they have the one-on-one attention of a facial plastic surgeon ensures the best Restylane effects possible. With Dr. Torgerson’s qualifications and skills, patients will always have the benefit of the latest and safest Restylane injection techniques. Because of his keen eye for beauty and his artistic skill, Dr. Torgerson is invited regularly to present and teach other medical personnel about the latest innovations.
The injections are very tolerable, and each syringe comes with a product called Lidocaine within it. Lidocaine is an excellent numbing agent that helps freeze the area, making the procedure comfortable and easy. Patients can also choose to have an additional topical numbing cream put on top of their skin about 10 minutes prior to treatment if they would like.
Restylane dermal filler is a wonderfully easy and quick treatment. Following a consultation with Dr. Torgerson, patients can decide on how many syringes of Restylane they would like to use and where the Restylane should be injected. Depending on these factors, Restylane treatments typically last between 15 and 45 minutes. The results are immediately rewarding!
Following a Restylane injection, the recovery process is simple and generally depends on where the product was injected as well as how much Restylane was used. Most clients return to their daily, normal activities. They are advised that they may experience the most swelling for up to 1 to 2 days after the treatment. For 7 to 10 days afterwards, slight swelling may remain but will typically disappear and is usually imperceptible. Small bruises may also arise around the injection location, but they are simply covered with makeup or are scarcely noticeable. An option to diminish the possibility of slight bruising is to avoid any blood thinning products such as ginseng, vitamin E, or aspirin for one to two weeks before your Restylane dermal filler appointment.
Restylane outcomes usually last between 6 months and one year, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the product and which area Restylane was injected into (i.e. lips last for the least amount of time since we are constantly moving them by talking and eating, which will break down the product faster). Please see our Dermal Filler page to learn about which dermal fillers are longer lasting as well as more general Injectable Filler information. Most clients return for their next injection before the product completely disappears to optimize the overall shape, look, and contour.
For a prompt reply on what the most up-to-date cost of a Restylane syringe (also known as a cc or vial) is, please contact our office via phone, email, or by using the online form. The dermal filler procedures are charged depending upon the number of Restylane vials that are injected. Dr. Torgerson makes every attempt to offer his clients high-quality service and competitive pricing. Our office also hosts special pricing events a few times each year to offer clients even more exceptional pricing.
No, Restylane is formulated from a hyaluronic acid base and therefore is not permanent. Our bodies already produce this sugar in our joints and eyeballs and will metabolize the Restylane just as it does that naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid within us. Restylane injections are extremely low-risk, and the product has a wide following of happy clients throughout North America.
First, you can contact our office to schedule a free consultation. We try our best to promptly respond to any emails or phone calls within 1 business day. After arriving for your Restylane consultation, Dr. Torgerson will privately discuss all the options involved when selecting a dermal filler as well as possible treatment areas. If you choose to proceed with the Restylane treatment after the consultation, the Restylane injections can be performed at the same. As mentioned, only the surgeon performs the injectable filler treatments. It is part of our commitment to high-quality standards and outcomes. Dr. Torgerson is known as a top injector, and patients appreciate the high quality of care we offer.
