How long do Restylane fillers last?

As Restylane is a form of derma filler, results from the treatment will be visible immediately following the injection, with complete results typically being realized within a week or two. Restylane fillers do not produce permanent results, as the hyaluronic acid will slowly break down in the body over time. The longevity of the results will vary by individual based on their body’s response to the treatment and how quickly the hyaluronic acid is broken down. The area being treated will also factor into how long the treatment lasts. Restylane derma filler results will typically last between six and eighteen months. Touch up treatments can be performed as needed in order to maintain results. Your Restylane specialist at Coral Springs Med Spa will be able to build you a personalized treatment plan, including your initial procedure and the frequency of follow up treatments.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is an FDA-approved derma filler made using a hyaluronic acid-based solution injected below the surface of the skin to provide volume, plumpness and fill out areas of the face that have lost volume and appear wrinkled or sagging due to natural aging. There are several different formulations of Restylane on the market, with each formula designed and created for use on a different area of the face. Hyaluronic acid is naturally produced by our bodies, meaning the use of it as a derma filler is a safe alternative for an anti-aging treatment with the likelihood of having a negative reaction to the substance being very low. Restylane fillers can be used in the cheeks to provide volume and fullness and in the lips and mouth to reduce wrinkles and fine lines, as well as provide volume to the lips for a symmetrical, balanced mouth. At Coral Springs Med Spa, we offer a variety of Restylane products to smooth out wrinkles or add volume and plumpness to targeted areas of the face. Our team can walk you through your treatment options to determine if Restylane is right for you.

How much does Restylane cost?

Restylane costs will vary depending on the area of the face being treated and how many units of product are needed to provide the targeted results. Results and costs will vary by individual and our trained staff at Coral Springs Med Spa will be able to provide you with a personalized treatment plan based on the areas of the face being treated and how many units of Restylane will be needed to achieve the desired results. Restylane pricing is based on units, with 1 unit costing roughly $275, although prices can vary, and our specialist will be able to confirm the exact price. Restylane is a cosmetic procedure, and therefore not typically covered by insurance. This means patients can expect to pay for the full cost of treatment out of their own pocket.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane works by using a hyaluronic acid-based solution injected into targeted areas of the face. The solution provides added volume below the skin’s surface which can plump up sagging skin and smooth out wrinkles caused by reduced elasticity in the skin. Restylane serves many different purposes based on the individual product, as there are several different solutions available to treat different areas of the face. It can be used in the cheeks to add volume and plump up the cheeks for a more youthful appearance. Other treatment options include formulations to provide volume to the lips for a full, symmetrical and balanced pout, as well as reduction of wrinkles and fine lines around the perimeter of the mouth. Your practitioner at Coral Springs Med Spa will be able to walk you through the different products and explain how they work to provide you with the results you are seeking.

What to expect after Restylane?

Patients can expect to see immediate improvements in the treated area following their Restylane filler injections. The derma fillers will provide fullness and volume when injected and will continue to show improvements over the days immediately following treatment, with full results being achieved within a couple of weeks of the treatment. Restylane results can last anywhere from six to eighteen months, depending on the area being treated and the individual’s response to the treatment. Your Restylane specialist at Coral Springs Med Spa will fully explain what to expect before, during and following your Restylane treatments as part of your initial consultation to help you determine if Restylane is the right option for you. We serve patients from Coral Springs FL, Margate FL, Coconut Creek FL, Tamarac FL, and Parkland FL.
