Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring Restylane® Treatment in Webster, League City, Friendswood and Houston, TX
Clear Lake Dermatology offers Restylane® injections to patients in Houston, League City, and the surrounding Bay Area. Restylane® injections are intended to fill deep wrinkles, especially on and around the lips. This procedure can be performed only by a licensed physician who has been properly trained in administering this product. Our doctors have been licensed to perform Restylane® treatments.
Prior to a Restylane® treatment, our doctors will administer a local anesthetic. After this, Restylane® will be placed into a syringe and injected underneath the skin. Restylane® is a gel-like substance that contains hyaluronic acid, which helps plump the skin.
People with allergies to any type of medication should not undergo Restylane® treatments. Those who have cuts or lesions in the area to be treated should wait until these wounds completely heal. People with bleeding disorders should also forgo treatments, as Restylane® can sometimes damage blood vessels in the area where this substance is injected.
Results are noticeable immediately after the procedure, with the full effects seen in approximately one week.
After the procedure, many patients report some tenderness and bruising in the area where the injection was administered. Some redness, tingling, and light swelling may also occur near the treated area. These effects are not normally severe, so patients may eat and talk as normal shortly after leaving the Clear Lake Dermatology clinic. Headaches, nausea, or muscle weakness are signs of severe complications that require immediate medical attention.
Restylane® will not completely fill in all facial or lip wrinkles, but it will result in remarkable improvement. Some people may require more than one treatment to achieve optimum results. These results are temporary, so the procedure may need to be repeated after a few months.
