The Restylane collection is a family of effective dermal fillers that restore the body’s hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar in the body that attracts and absorbs water to provide your skin with moisture, youthful volume and elasticity.
As we age, the body produces less HA, which contributes to a loss of facial volume in the cheeks and lips. Wrinkles, lines and creases follow. Restylane Contour filler replaces the lost volume to smooth away deep lines and wrinkles, and lifts, smooths and renews your supple, youthful appearance. Restylane Contour is combined with a small amount of lidocaine, which provides a numbing effect.
What is Restylane Contour?
Restylane Contour is the latest filler from the Restylane line. Restylane restores volume and fullness to the cheeks, but it is unique in that it also allows more flexibility and motion in order to allow you to retain your usual range of facial expression.
Restylane Contour targets hollow cheeks with its flexible gel that integrates with the skin. The volume in the midface is restored, the cheekbones are youthfully lifted, and the final appearance is natural and appealing, because the gel allows for more freedom of facial motion.
Benefits of Restylane Contour
Restylane Contour is an excellent option for patients who would like to restore the volume in their cheeks. Benefits include the following:
- Higher, more contoured cheekbones
- A natural, more flexible appearance than other fillers
- Renewed volume to replace hollows in the cheeks
- Subtle, natural results
- Improved self confidence
- No downtime required
- Short recovery period of only a few days
- Lasts 6-12 months
No downtime is necessary after Restylane Contour treatments. One of the best benefits of Restylane Contour is that the recovery time is very short. You can expect some slight redness, swelling and bruising in the targeted areas after your treatment. You may use an ice pack to help diminish swelling or bruising, which will last for a few days or a week. Refrain from alcohol, heavy exercise, excessive heat, and sun exposure for 24 hours after treatment.
