How Long Does Restylane® Last?
When you improve your appearance with a top-quality cosmetic dermal filler, and see your face positively transformed into a fresher, younger look, you want the results to last a long, long time. Even as safe and tolerable as Restylane® is to get, you’re still making a commitment and undergoing a non-surgical procedure, so of course you want to look renewed for as long as you can.
Restylane®’s FDA-approved, safe and natural hyaluronic acid injections, plumping up your skin for fresher-looking fullness, wrinkle-reduction, lines and creases eliminated and contouring perfected by your board-certified plastic surgeon, has been proven to be among the longest-lasting aesthetic treatments out there today, with many patients reporting results lasting 6-12 months.
How long Restylane® lasts is a big questions among patients, and a general estimate is as such: Restylane® injections for wrinkle treatment tends to last from 6 – 12 months, and Restylane® injections for lip enhancement often last for around 6 months.
Results will, of course, depend on how much Restylane® your board-certified dermatologist uses to correct the severity of your lines and creases, as well as where on your face you get your Restylane® injections. Your doctor will assess the condition of your skin, as well as the locations that would most benefit from injections of this soft, clear dermal filler, and can give you a more personalized estimate of how long you can expect your results to last.
Results will vary from person-to-person, and your results might last slightly less time, or perhaps slightly more time, than the reported six months of beautiful results. While a doctor can’t predict to the day how long your Restylane® will be in full effect, you can get an idea of how long you can expect your treatment to last, and what comes next should you want a refresher treatment.
If you wish to keep your fuller, fresher face looking its best, you might choose to get Restylane® twice a year, or on a schedule prescribed by your doctor. With a busy schedule such as yours, you don’t want to be bothered with monthly treatments. With your desire for quick results, you want Restylane®’s instant improvements. And with your wish to avoid any downtime, recovery that takes you ‘out of the game’ and away from work, social engagements, and your family’s activities, Restylane® can have you up and engaged in life right after your treatment.
Don’t worry that you’ll have to limit your facial movements to ‘keep your filler in place’ or extend its life and the fullest benefits of your dermal filler injections. Restylane® is not high-maintenance, so you can smile, laugh, and express yourself to the fullest while your Restylane® works its magic beneath your skin. Your board-certified dermatologist will, of course, advise you on the best care for your skin in general, including proper cleansing and hydration, and smart lifestyle choices such as using sunscreen and avoiding smoking, and adhering to your doctor’s advice will help keep you looking gorgeous for a long time.
