Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg are New York City-based Board-certified dermatologists and specialists in non-surgical cosmetic techniques. They often recommend Restylane injections alone or as part of a comprehensive skin rejuvenation and enhancement program.
As we get older, our bodies produce less hyaluronic acid, a hydrating substance that helps the skin stay supple. Restylane reintroduces a supply of hyaluronic acid to the skin. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid binds with water molecules, prompting the skin to retain moisture. The result is an instant boost.
Because of its versatility, Restylane has become one of the most popular injectable treatments available on the market. Restylane is commonly used to restore lost volume, smooth out lines and moderate-to-severe creases, and enhance the lips. Restylane can be used to treat:
Restylane treatments are fast, convenient, and do not require downtime. During your appointment, your doctor will inject a small amount of Restylane gel into the treatment area(s) with a small needle. To achieve optimal and natural-looking results, Dr. Gary Goldenberg and Dr. Kristina Goldenberg will carefully calibrate the amount of Restylane to be injected. A typical treatment can be completed in 15 to 60 minutes; the total treatment time will depend on the individual patient’s needs.
After Restylane injections, some patients report mild redness, bruising, and swelling around the injection site. These side effects are minor and will resolve themselves in a day or two.
