What is Restylane®?

** Ventura County, Thousand Oaks, Westlake Village, Camarillo and Ventura






Q How often should I have Restylane®

treatments done?

restylane photoA Treatments are typically scheduled twice a

year. Having a touch-up treatment before the

product has fully dissipated may enhance the

lasting effect.


Q What should patients do prior

to treatment?

A Restylane requires no pretesting, but you

should take a few precautions before being

treated. Avoid using aspirin, non-steroidal

anti-infl ammatory medications, St. John’s

Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements

prior to treatment, because these may

increase bruising or bleeding at the injection

site. Also, if you have previously suffered

from facial cold sores, discuss this with your

physician. He/She may consider prescribing

a medication to minimize recurrence.

Q How is Restylane different

from Botox® Cosmetic?

A Restylane is a natural, cosmetic filler. In

restylane photocontrast, Botox Cosmetic is a drug that

blocks nerve transmission and relaxes the

underlying muscles. Many patients have

been very pleased after receiving treatment

with both products.


Q How is Restylane different from

bovine collagen?

A Bovine collagen is derived from animals

(cows) and requires an allergy test. Restylane

can be administered immediately—no

waiting is required.



Q Do the injections hurt?

A Restylane® is injected directly into the skin in

tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting

in minimal discomfort. The procedure

is simple and convenient, and results are

practically instantaneous. To optimize your

comfort during the short procedure, your

physician may anesthetize the treatment area.
