Welcome, lovelies. When you were young (as we all were), you were told wrinkles were unavoidable. Truly this seemed to be the case as you watched your grandparents, your parents, grow older. Wrinkles formed and deepened around their eyes and mouths, their skin sagged along their jawlines. They were still the beautiful people you loved, but time was etching itself on their faces. Perhaps you wondered, would this be the same for you? Their time is not your time, and their fate is not your own anymore. While time cannot be stopped, its effects on your face can be minimized, and Skin by Lovely has the knowledge and tools to help, like with Restylane-L.

Restylane-L Overview & Uses
Restylane-L, manufactured by Galderma, is a colorless gel injectable composed of non-animal source hyaluronic acid, a sugar naturally produced in the human body. It was the first dermal filler to be approved by the FDA for facial aesthetic injection, and is used to correct age-related issues such as facial folds and wrinkles, loss of volume resulting in sag (often in the cheeks), and delicate under eye concerns. Along with the above applications, Restylane-L works well for shaping and contouring lips, providing fullness, symmetry, and definition.

Your Dermal Filler Consultation
During your consultation, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will review your medical history, listen to your concerns, conduct an examination, and develop a treatment plan specifically designed to help you achieve your goals and desires. They will happily answer any questions you may have, as well as inform you on your treatment process, and pre- and post-treatment safety and care.
Your Dermal Filler Treatment
While you recline comfortably in our treatment area, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will prepare your target areas with a gentle cleanse. Ice may be applied before injection, and Resylane-L contains 0.3% lidocaine which helps minimize discomfort. We administer the filler using an ultra-fine needle which provides better control and precision..
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Appointments
Simply put: there is little to no downtime. This treatment is noninvasive and many clients continue their day. One clinical study found many patients noticed immediate results, with full results seen within two weeks and generally lasting six months. Mild bruising, swelling, tenderness, and itching may occur, but often fade away within two weeks. To ensure the best results, we will provide you with aftercare instructions.
Since Restylane-L, as with all fillers, is a temporary measure, you will need follow-up appointments to maintain your new look. These will be determined during your consultation with your Aesthetic Injection Specialist.
We are happy to answer your questions during consultation, but through experience we recognize several questions are commonly asked.
Is this filler safe? Does it carry FDA-approval?
Restylane, FDA approved in 2005, was the first hyaluronic acid dermal filler on the market. Lidocaine was added to the injectable to reduce discomfort, rebranding the injectable as Restylane-L in 2012, also FDA approved.
Restylane-L is composed of hyaluronic acid, a moisture magnet which helps provide youthful fullness. Because it is a natural substance found in the human body, very few experience an adverse reaction.
Who is a good candidate for treatment? Who should not receive this procedure?
If you are an adult, in good overall health, and wish to address facial concerns or enhance your appearance with noninvasive treatments, you may be a good candidate. You should not receive this procedure if you experienced a reaction to dermal fillers in the past, or if you are pregnant or breastfeeding. If you are uncertain on whether you are a good candidate but wish to address problem areas, meet with one of our Aesthetic Injection Specialists for evaluation.
Where can I learn more?
More information about Restylane-L can be found on their official website. We at Skin by Lovely are also happy to answer any questions you may have about this and other injectable treatments we offer during your consultation.
