Are you tired of the effects of aging weighing on you? If so, Restylane in Brooklyn may be the solution that you have been looking for. Restylane is an injectable facial treatment that is non-surgical in nature and has been formulated to minimize and hide the effects that aging has on the skin. This filler is made up of a clear hyaluronic acid that works to add lubrication to the skin and reduce lines and wrinkles, which can shave years off your appearance. If you would like to discuss this treatment method, contact Kleydman Dermatology today.

What Exactly is Restylane?

Restylane is an injectable dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced inside of your body. The gel is non-animal based and it is clear and biodegradable as well. The injectable was first developed in Sweden and made its way to the United States for use. What sets Restylane apart from other dermal fillers is that Restylane is made from tissues that are created in a lab, whereas other fillers may contain collagen.

Restylane Treatment in Brooklyn

If you would like to consider Restylane in Brooklyn, you should contact our office. When it comes to treatment, any area of your face can be treated and the injectable works best when you have:

  • Wrinkles
  • Creases
  • Fine lines
  • Deep folds

Many patients want to target fine lines around the mouth to enhance their appearance and reduce the signs of aging. It is possible for Restylane to be used to correct larger areas of the face where you may be unhappy with the skin such as recessive chins, bags under the eyes, and more.

Restylane can also be used to help fill in your lips and make them appear plump. In general, if you are unhappy with the look of your face and you would like to add shape, volume, or smoothness, Restylane treatment in Brooklyn can accomplish that.

Before you have Restylane injections, it is vital that you meet with Dr. Kleydman to ensure the procedure is right for you. While most patients are good candidates, there are times when a patient may be better off with a different type of treatment. Fortunately, the use of Restylane does not require that the skin be tested first, which is why many patients like it too.

When it is time for the procedure, Dr. Kleydman will apply a topical anesthetic to your face to numb the area where the injections will be received. Then, you will receive injections of Restylane through small needles that are inserted into the skin. You should not expect there to be a lot of discomfort and the process is quite fast.
