Do I Need Restylane®?
Are the signs of aging finally starting to catch up with you when you notice yourself in the mirror? A life well enjoyed can also mean a life spent with age lines in your cheeks, forehead, and around your eyes. If you’re looking to take control of those unwanted lines and slightly sagging skin on your face, consider getting a Restylane treatment.
Restylane is an injection treatment that is designed to add volume to the skin and remove wrinkles, smile lines, and drooping skin on the face. The most common use is to alleviate age lines in the nasolabial folds – the “smile” lines – between the nose and mouth.
It can also be used for treatment in the melomental folds – more commonly known as “sad mouth corners” or “marionette lines” – or in the corners of the eyes to remove crow’s feet lines.
Essentially, the Restylane procedure is to help give your skin the fullness and tightness you had in your youth and to restore its appearance to the days when you were making the happy memories that have left their reminders on your face.
Restylane treatments can also be used in the lips to give them a fuller and more plump appearance. Imagine the full lips you’ve always wanted. Now imagine that in one quick and relatively pain-free visit to your doctor, those lips can be yours.
The procedure itself can vary depending on your age and the area in which the work is being done. The most common treatments are outpatient injections given by your doctor in the crevices of the lines in your face.
Injections should be given under the care of your doctor and should not be done at the site of blemishes such as pimples, cold sores, or rashes. There can be some irritation or swelling after treatment, but it is mostly mild in nature and goes away within a week.
The truth is, you’ve lived a great life, and those memories should always remain… in your mind, but not on your face. If you’re ready to return your face to the youthful, wrinkle-free way it used to be, set up a consultation with Dr. Abramson today!
What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, especially around your mouth and nose. It is made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the human body and helps give framework to your skin. Restylane® patients enjoy effective results because the injected solution acts like an inflated cushion, supporting facial structures and tissues that have lost volume or elasticity. Restylane® also brings water to your skin to keep it glowing and supple.
At the offices of Dr. David L. Abramson, patients are seeing great success with Restylane®. In fact, products based on hyaluronic acid have become some of the most popular kinds of dermal fillers.
Dr. Abramson’s staff invites men and women from New York City, Englewood, Manhattan and outlying areas to come in for a scheduled appointment and learn more about Restylane®.
Is Restylane® Right for You?
Because hyaluronic acid is found in almost all living things, Restylane® is highly compatible with the human body. As a result, pretty much anyone can be a good candidate for the injections.

About Your Restylane® Treatment
When you undergo Restylane® treatments, the procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes and will be performed in our facility. A skilled professional will mark specific areas of your face and then inject the solution with a very fine needle. You may need several follow-up treatments to achieve the results you desire, but the effects of Restylane® usually last about four to six months.
