There are lots of ways that aging can change the way your skin looks and feels. If you’re not happy with these changes, then our Restylane filler treatments at Biotech Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in Bay Harbor Islands, Coral Gables, and Sunny Isles, FL could provide you with the effective anti-aging solution that you’re looking for.
What Should You Not Do After Restylane?
One great way to treat aging concerns like wrinkling and sagging is by getting a dermal filler like Restylane. This filler can provide you with effective, safe, and long-lasting results that will help you look younger and feel more confident in your appearance.
This treatment is an ideal choice for many candidates because it’s non-invasive. That means there’s no need to worry about an uncomfortable and lengthy treatment process paired with a long and possible painful recovery period. Instead, your treatment will be fast, painless, and easy. Your recovery period will require essentially no downtime, and there are just a few things you’ll need to be mindful of as your skin heals. Here are a few things you should avoid after your treatment.
One thing you want to be very careful of post-treatment is avoiding any extreme temperatures. For the next week after your treatment, you’ll want to avoid any type of extreme heat. That means limiting your time outdoors and staying away from warm environments.
Heat can make the product break down faster, which means you won’t get effective results. So stay out of the warmth including things like hot tubs and saunas until you’re fully healed.
Like the heat, it’s important that you avoid staying out in unprotected direct sunlight. The sun’s UV rays can be harmful to your skin in general. It can also make your filler break down faster which, again, means less effective results.
So avoid going outside in the sunlight as much as possible post-treatment. If you absolutely must go outside in the sun, wear sunscreen and cover up the areas where you’ve been injected as much as possible.
While it may be tempting to apply makeup to conceal any redness post-injection, it’s best to avoid putting any on. For the next 24 hours, your injection sites must stay sterile to help them heal properly.
Putting makeup on could encourage bacteria to enter your injections sites, which could cause some pretty major problems for you. So avoid putting any makeup on for at least a day after your treatment.
Intensive Physical Activity
After your injections, you will need to avoid any strenuous physical activity. This includes any type of activity that might make you sweat a lot. Sweating could irritate the injection sites which could slow healing and cause bacteria to enter.
You should also avoid intensive exercise and physical activity because that could boost your metabolism. That, in turn, could make your body process the product too quickly for it to provide you with the effective results that you want.
After your injections, you may feel tempted to touch the injection sites to see how they feel and get to know your new skin. But you should avoid touching your skin as much as possible, and you should especially avoid applying any pressure to it.
Pressure could cause the product to move around beneath your skin. It may not settle correctly, and you might not get the results you want. So avoid applying any pressure, and try to sleep on your back for the first night or two post-injections.
Some Skin Products
One great way to maintain your results from this treatment is by keeping up with a good skincare routine. But immediately after your injections, you’re going to need to be careful about the products you’re applying to your skin.
Things like vitamin C, retinoids, and chemical exfoliants encourage your body’s cell turnover. This might irritate the sites where you’ve received your injections. While an increased cell turnover rate can help your skin look younger, avoid using any of these products for at least a day or two after treatment.
What better way to celebrate an all-new you than with a few drinks with friends? If you’re thinking of heading out for a night on the town, you’ll want to wait if you’ve just received your injections.
Alcohol can thin out your blood which can make your skin slower to heal. It can also prevent the product from settling into place correctly. So while a glass of wine or a cocktail might be tempting, avoid alcohol for the next few days after treatment.
What Should You Know About Restylane?
If you want to get the best results from your treatment, then following our post-treatment instructions is crucial. But aside from that, recovery is easy, pain-free, and fast.
If you’re thinking about receiving this dermal filler, then know that you’ll be getting an FDA-approved, safe treatment that will provide you with results that will last.
What Is It?
This is a line of dermal fillers all of which use hyaluronic acid as their main ingredient. This is sugar you can find already present in your skin. However, while your natural levels of hyaluronic acid may be fairly high in your youth, you’ll lose significant amounts as you get older.
This will result in your face thinning out, which can age your appearance and make you look gaunt. This dermal filler will put hyaluronic back into your face, filling in the parts that may have lost volume. It will also encourage your body’s production of collagen, a protein that’s important for your skin’s overall structure and appearance. You’ll find that your skin is tighter, smoother, firmer, and looks more voluminous once you receive this treatment.
When Will You See Results?
When looking into any cosmetic treatment, seeing results quickly is often a primary goal. While there are lots of dermal fillers and other treatment options out there, not all of them offer fast results. Some options can take weeks to fully kick in, which might not be ideal for your situation.
If you want something fast-acting, then this will be the filler for you. As soon as you leave our clinic, you’ll notice a difference in your appearance. The product immediately takes up room under your skin, making it look fuller and smoother. This, in turn, will give you a much more youthful appearance.
How Long Do Results Last?
Along with getting quick results, results that are going to last you are probably important to you. While there are some situations where patients may be looking for more short-term results, if you’re looking for something that will last Restylane can offer you what you’re looking for.
How long your results last depend on a few things, including the type of Restylane that you receive. Most people are able to maintain their results for anywhere between 6 and 18 months. Taking care to follow our post-treatment instructions will help your results stay as long as possible.
What Can It Treat?
This dermal filler is designed to add volume to areas where you may have lost it. There are a few different types, all designed to target different parts of your face. Depending on what areas you’d like treated and what your specific concerns are, you might receive one or more types of this dermal filler.
You can use it to treat any loss of fullness in your cheeks, as well as around your nose and mouth area. It can also be used on your lips to provide fullness or even out any asymmetry.
Who Is a Candidate?
Because this dermal filler uses sugar that is naturally present in your body as its main ingredient, it’s safe for most people to get. As long as you are in good overall health and have not had any adverse reactions to similar fillers in the past, then this could be a safe option for you.
It’s great for any potential candidates who are unhappy with the way aging has caused volume loss and other changes to the skin. If you’re looking to feel more confident in your appearance and you have aging-related skin concerns, you could be a good candidate.
