Dr. Baird was very prompt, professional and understanding. I love this office and will continue to use them. The staff was nice and professional.”
Who is a Good Candidate?
Patients with deep perioral lines and wrinkles can often benefit from these injections. Restylane® and Perlane® can also lessen the appearance of some scars. Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo these dermal filler treatments. A consultation is the best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure.
How is Treatment Done?
During treatment, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the treatment area for ensured comfort. The filler product will then be injected under the skin for immediate results. There is little to no downtime associated with Restylane® and Perlane® injections, and most patients return to their everyday activities directly after.
Following treatment, patients often experience bruising, redness, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site. These side-effects are usually mild and will lessen within 24 hours. Ice can also be used to minimize redness. Patients can expect results from Restylane® to last about six months, while Perlane® is known to last a bit longer.
