Restylane ®

Some of the consequences of aging, such as experience, judgement, appreciation of family, friends and simple pleasures, are truly wonderful. Others are less welcome – such as the appearance of aging facial skin with lines, wrinkles, and folds.

Over time, sun exposure impacts skin quality, with the body producing less of the vital collagen that keeps it firm, youthful and healthy. As your skin becomes less elastic and firm, wrinkles form.

If you are troubled by wrinkles and would like to regain a smoother, more youthful appearance, Dr. Kaado can provide a non-invasive treatment with a dermal filler that has been formulated to act like a substance that your body produces naturally: Restylane.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is a clear gel containing hyaluronic acid (HA), which occurs naturally. HA is present in many parts of your body, including internal fluids, connective tissue and even your eyes. A good portion of all of the HA in your body is in your skin, where it helps the skin retain water and remain moist and firm.

Restylane has been successfully used to treat facial wrinkles and folds for more than two decades. First introduced in Europe in 1996, it has since been used in millions of procedures in more than 70 countries. No product intended for use in filling wrinkles has been studied more.

What Products are Available at Dr. Kaado’s Practice?

Dr. Kaado has experience with a number of Restylane products, each developed for specific applications. These include:

  • Restylane and Restylane-L®: These are intended to smooth and correct severe folds and facial wrinkles, including smile lines running from your nose to the corners of your mouth, technically termed “nasolabial folds.”
  • Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine: This product is approved for patients over the age of 21. It is injected more deeply into the skin structure to treat severe wrinkles and folds and to augment cheek volume. It can also be used to improve the appearance of hands.
  • Restylane Silk: This product was developed to increase lip volume. It can also be used to smooth lines around the lips (“perioral wrinkles”) in patients 21 years old or above.
  • Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne: Intended for mid to deep injection, these advanced dermal fillers correct moderate to deep smile lines and folds.

Why Choose Dr. Kaado?

Cosmetic surgery is based in science and medicine, but there’s no denying that it is also a matter of art. Your personal concept of how you want to present your face to the world is based upon your individual aesthetic vision. There’s no question that you need a highly-experienced, talented medical professional to perform your enhancement – a professional with the eye of an artist.

Dr. Kaado meets all of these requirements. He has practiced in Europe and South America as well as in the U.S., absorbing the techniques used by leading practitioners of aesthetic treatments. His clients include professionals from the world of fashion and business leaders, as well as people from all walks of life who hope to regain the confidence and happiness that a fresh, youthful appearance can bring.

What Should I Expect?

Restylane treatments are simple. The dosage and type of filler will be carefully selected to match the individual needs of the patient, and carefully and correctly injected. No anesthetic is required, though a numbing cream can help make the treatment more comfortable.

For some facial zones, the area may be massaged to smoothly distribute the hyaluronic acid. After treatment, it is not uncommon to experience some degree of swelling, itching or redness in the area of the injections. Within a few days, if not sooner, these disappear, and you are left with a younger, smoother, rejuvenated look. Dr. Kaado is so careful and meticulous in how he administers these treatments that his patients rarely experience any significant bruising or swelling.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Restylane treatments vary in how long they last before retreatment is needed, and the type of filler. Typical results are as follows:

  • The average duration of results is about 6 months.
  • The more the area treated moves, the sooner you may need another treatment. Forehead lines or creases may not need treatment for as long as 12 months, and enhanced lip volume may need retreatment sooner.

Cannulas vs Needles

In any cosmetic procedure, the goal is to make the treatment as pain-free and effective as possible. This includes staying ahead of the curve in the latest advancements in technology and improved procedures to improve and enhance results, and patient experience.

In the past, procedures involving the delivery of dermal fillers have involved the use of sharp, rigid hypodermic needles. Today, Dr. Kaado and other practitioners at the leading edge of cosmetic surgery have adopted a new approach: the use of blunt-tipped cannulas rather than needles.
