You don’t have to use expensive, invasive procedures to renew your skin and improve your appearance. At the Beverly Hills Sculptress in Beverly Hills, California, we can add volume to your cheeks, smooth your wrinkles and improve other facial features with the Restylane collection of dermal fillers.
Does Restylane Work Immediately?
The Restylane collection of dermal fillers is a group of FDA-approved injectable treatments that can be used to renew and refresh your appearance. Since your body’s reaction to these products will be unique, your individual results will vary. That said, these dermal fillers work very quickly, and you should see improvements in your target area right away.
You will not see the complete effect of your filler immediately. Your body and skin will take some time to adjust to your treatment, and you should not judge the effects of your filler until it has had time to settle into your treatment area. In general, you will see the final results of your chosen filler within about two weeks.
How Do These Dermal Fillers Improve My Appearance?
All of the products in this collection use the same general technique to enhance your appearance. In particular, each of these products contains an ingredient known as hyaluronic acid.
The Role of Hyaluronic Acid
Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in your skin. Since hyaluronic acid is extremely good at retaining water, this acid helps your skin stay smooth and youthful. At the beginning of your life, you have ample amounts of this acid in your skin. However, your body will make less of this substance as you get older. As a result, your lips tend to become thinner and you will develop wrinkles and lines around your nose and mouth.
In addition to losing hyaluronic acid as you age, we all lose subcutaneous fat in your face. As your fat pads decrease, you develop hollow cheeks and loose, sagging skin.
Replacing Your Lost Acid
When we inject your chosen filler into your face or hands, the hyaluronic acid in the product will quickly add volume to your target area. This process can restore fullness to your hands, lips, and cheeks. Hyaluronic acid can also smooth wrinkles around your mouth and nose.
What Issues Can These Fillers Address?
Each of the products in this collection of dermal fillers is designed to achieve a specific cosmetic objective.
This versatile filler can be used to fix moderate-to-severe wrinkles around your mouth and nose. We also can use this filler to enhance the size of your lips.
This dermal filler is a smooth, gentle gel that is designed to produce subtle, natural-looking improvements in your appearance. We can use this injectable product to add volume to your lips and minimize wrinkles near your mouth.
This filler can add volume to a variety of different locations on your body. For instance, we can use this filler to restore fullness to the back of your hands. This product can also be used to add volume to your cheeks and smooth smile lines and other wrinkles on your face.
Refyne and Defyne
These fillers use a special formula to rejuvenate your appearance without removing your ability to frown, smile, and make other natural facial movements. We can use Refyne and Defyne to minimize lines and wrinkles that appear around your mouth.
As its name implies, this innovative filler will give you fuller, more beautiful lips. This product can also smooth your lip lines and improve the color of your lips. This product is manufactured using specialized XpresNAn Technology that creates precise, attractive results.
How Long Will My Injections Take?
Administering dermal fillers is a very straightforward, gentle process, and your appointment will usually take only an hour to complete. As a result, it’s common to receive injections of your chosen filler during your lunch break.
Preparing for Your Filler
We will start the injection process by cleaning the skin in your target area. After your skin is clean, we will make temporary marks that will allow us to administer your injections in a precise, careful manner.
Receiving Your Filler
Once we have prepared your skin, we will gently inject your chosen filler into your treatment area. The exact amount of filler that we inject will vary depending on your desired look and the type of issue that we are addressing.
There’s no need to feel nervous about your injections, and we will make sure that you are comfortable throughout this process. In fact, many of our fillers contain lidocaine. This is a local anesthetic that will numb your skin and help you relax as we perform your injections.
Will My Results Be Permanent?
These fillers do not create permanent changes in your appearance. Instead, the duration of your results will vary depending on the type of filler that you selected, the amount of product that we used, and your body’s response to your treatment. For instance, the results of Kysse, Refyne, and Defyne are likely to last for up to one year. If you used Lyft to add volume to your hands or fill in wrinkles on your face, your results are likely to last for up to six months.
It’s easy to preserve your new look by getting periodic touch-up injections. Your touch-up schedule will be personalized, and we can give you more details about your anticipated maintenance program during your initial consultation.
Am I a Good Candidate for These Dermal Fillers?
These treatments are very safe, and you are likely to be a good candidate for these fillers if you are an adult who wants to plump your lips, minimize your wrinkles, or restore volume to your face or hands.
That said, you should not use this collection of products if you are currently pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, you should not use these products if you have recently taken certain medications or if you have allergies that could interfere with your treatment.
You are not a good candidate for these fillers if you take blood-thinning medications or have allergies to gram-positive bacteria. You also cannot use some of these fillers if you are allergic to lidocaine.
Do These Dermal Fillers Really Work?
Scientific studies show that all of the dermal fillers in this collection produce noticeable results. For instance, during clinical studies, 96% of the people who used Kysse said their lips were fuller eight weeks after they received their injections. In addition, 96% of these people said that their results looked natural.
Similarly, scientific studies have shown that Refyne and Defyne create noticeable improvements in facial wrinkles. For instance, in one study, 97% of the people who received this treatment were satisfied with their results and 95% of these people would recommend these fillers to a friend.
What Is the Difference Between Dermal Fillers and Botox?
At the Beverly Hills Sculptress, we can use dermal fillers and Botox to enhance your skin. Although dermal fillers and Botox are both injectable treatments, there are some important differences between these products.
Unlike our range of dermal fillers, Botox does not contain hyaluronic acid. Instead, Botox uses a purified form of a protein called botulinum toxin to change the behavior of the muscles in your target area. Once we administer your Botox injections in your treatment area, the botulinum toxin will block your nerves from sending messages that tell your muscles to move. This process will stop your skin from creasing and folding.
We can use Botox to improve the appearance of frown lines, forehead wrinkles, bunny lines, and other wrinkles. It’s common to use a combination of Botox and dermal fillers to achieve your desired look. For instance, if you would like to smooth your forehead lines and achieve fuller cheeks, we can inject a dermal filler into your cheeks and use Botox to smooth the lines on your forehead.
Can I Buy These Dermal Fillers Online?
When you began researching dermal fillers, you might have seen websites that claim to sell these products online. These products are likely to be counterfeit or contaminated, and you should never try to purchase Restylane or another injectable product on the internet. In addition to possibly purchasing a counterfeit product, you are likely to damage your skin and appearance if you attempt to inject this product on your own.
Instead, you should always use dermal fillers under the supervision of a trained medical professional. We have a great deal of experience using dermal fillers, and we will use our skills to safely administer these injectable products. Further, we will use our understanding of facial anatomy to enhance your face in a natural-looking, artistic manner.
Can I Combine These Fillers With Other Anti-Aging Treatments?
If you’d like to achieve more comprehensive improvements in your appearance, you may benefit from using dermal fillers in connection with other anti-aging treatments.
A Range of Options
We can use skin rejuvenation treatments to minimize your wrinkles and sun damage, reduce the prominence of your acne scars, and even your skin tone. For example, during a dermaplaning treatment, we will use a specialized blade to remove fine hairs and dead skin cells from your face. This process will improve the tone and texture of your skin.
Similarly, during a chemical peel, we will use a customized combination of chemicals to exfoliate your skin, improve your acne, or address other imperfections.
Designing a Treatment Plan
During your initial consultation, we will talk about the issues that you would like to improve and give you more information about our complete range of skin rejuvenation treatments. We will work together to design a customized anti-aging plan for you.
Can I Use Dermal Fillers to Improve My Appearance Before a Big Event?
Dermal fillers can be used to plump your lips, smooth your wrinkles, and add volume to your cheeks before parties, vacations, weddings, and other important events. However, you need to remember that it may take your skin two full weeks to adjust to your filler. Accordingly, you should not schedule your appointment right before your big day.
Please tell us if you would like to achieve the full effect of your filler by a certain date. We will design a schedule that will allow you to look beautiful on your important day.
