New Uses for Restylane: Noses, Undereye & Facial Contouring
Restylane is one of the world’s top selling injectable facial fillers that popular for enhancing lips and filling wrinkles and lines. But many patients do not realize that Restylane can also be used to reshape the nose, as well as rejuvenate the undereye area by reducing the appearance of bags and dark circles.
Restylane is actually an excellent, non-surgical treatment that is a great alternative to rhinoplasty or blepharoplasty surgery for many patients – because it is cheaper, requires no long recovery time and carries far less risk. In this article, the facial filler experts at Advanced Laser and Skincare Spa in the Sterling Heights area discuss the innovative new uses for Restylane.
Restylane Non-Surgical “Nose Jobs”
The nose is a defining feature of the face, playing a crucial role in facial symmetry and overall appearance. While the shape, size, and symmetry of the nose can enhance facial beauty and harmony, many people are dissatisfied with their nose’s appearance. Some people may feel that their nose is crooked, too small, asymmetrical, or misshapen with a bump or ‘hook’ – leading to self-consciousness and a lack of confidence.
Non-surgical rhinoplasty, also sometimes called a liquid nose job, has become an increasingly popular option for individuals seeking to enhance the appearance of their nose without undergoing surgery. Restylane, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, has emerged as one of the top choices for non-surgical rhinoplasty due to its ability to reshape and contour the nose with minimal to no downtime and natural-looking results.
The procedure for a Restylane non-surgical rhinoplasty involves the injection of Restylane dermal filler into specific areas of the nose to create a more aesthetically pleasing shape. This may include filling in a depressed nasal bridge, elevating the tip of the nose, “evening out” a bump or hump, or correcting asymmetry.
The Restylane injections are typically performed in a series of small, precise injections to achieve the desired results. The injections can be carefully tailored to achieve a subtle or more dramatic change, depending on the patient’s cosmetic goals.
A non-surgical “nose job” with Restylane offers several advantages over traditional surgical rhinoplasty: there is no need for general anesthesia, incisions, or sutures, which significantly reduces the risks associated with surgery. In addition, non-surgical rhinoplasty allows for a more precise and targeted approach to reshaping the nose, without the need for extensive recovery time or scarring.
Another advantage of Restylane non-surgical rhinoplasty is the ability to achieve immediate results. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which can take weeks or even months to fully heal and reveal the final results, non-surgical rhinoplasty with Restylane offers instant gratification.
Restylane Non-Surgical “Nose Jobs” Results
The results of a Restylane non-surgical rhinoplasty can last up to 12 months or longer, depending on factors such as the patient’s metabolism, the amount of filler used, and the specific areas treated. Unlike surgical rhinoplasty, which involves permanent changes to the nose, non-surgical rhinoplasty with Restylane also allows patients to experiment with different shapes and sizes without the commitment of permanent alteration.
And with Restylane non-surgical rhinoplasty there is minimal to no downtime required after the procedure. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately after the injections, although some minor swelling, bruising, or tenderness may occur for a few days following the procedure.
Restylane Undereye (Tear Trough) Filler
Restylane can also be injected into the undereye tear trough area, to reduce under-eye bags and dark circles. Restylane undereye tear trough rejuvenation typically only takes about 30 minutes to complete, and patients can return to their normal activities immediately afterward. During the procedure, a small amount of Restylane filler is injected into the area beneath the eyes using a very fine needle. The filler is carefully placed to reduce the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes, while also adding volume and lift to the area.
One of the advantages of Restylane undereye tear trough rejuvenation is the longevity of the results. Most patients can expect to see a noticeable improvement in the appearance of dark circles and bags under the eyes for up to 12 months or longer after the procedure. Some patients may require a touch-up treatment during that period to maintain optimal desired results.
Another advantage of Restylane undereye tear trough rejuvenation is the minimal downtime. Unlike surgical options for undereye bags – like blepharoplasty surgery which requires several weeks of recovery – patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure. Some patients may experience minor swelling or bruising around the injection site, but these side effects typically resolve within a few days.
Restylane undereye tear trough fillers also offer several other advantages over blepharoplasty surgery. This non-surgical treatment reduces the appearance of eye bags but does not require general anesthesia or a hospital stay, which reduces the risk of complications. Additionally, there is no risk of scarring or changes in the shape of the eye. Restylane filler is also highly customizable, which allows our Restylane injection specialists to tailor the treatment to each individual patient’s needs and desired cosmetic results.
Restylane Facial Contouring
Restylane facial fillers can also be used for facial contouring to sculpt the face shape and improve proportions and symmetry. Include the procedure, longevity of results, downtime, and advantage over facial surgery.
Facial contouring with Restylane involves strategically placing the filler in certain areas of the face to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This can include adding volume to the cheeks, filling in hollows under the eyes, defining the jawline, improving symmetry, or creating that coveted facial “V Shape”.
Many women spend hours trying to “contour” their face with makeup to reduce the appearance of a square jaw, weak chin, flat cheeks, etc. But Restylane facial contouring can last up to 18 months, giving women (and men!) the facial shape, they desire. And, unlike surgery, Restylane facial shaping is not permanent – so as fashions and beauty ideals change, you can change your appearance in the future!
One of the main advantages of Restylane facial contouring over facial surgery is that it is less invasive and carries less risk. Facial surgery, such as a facelift or neck lift, involves general anesthesia, incisions, and a lengthy recovery period. Restylane facial contouring, on the other hand, involves only a few injections and minimal downtime. Additionally, Restylane facial contouring is a more affordable option compared to facial surgery.
