Dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in America. They provide a quick and effective solution to wrinkles and other problems. Restylane is a dermal filler formulated with hyaluronic acid, a substance you could easily find in any part of our body.
This Dermal filler is the perfect option for those who prefer a subtle change, or for those who don’t want to undergo any surgical procedure. While the procedure doesn’t last more than 30 minutes, its effects can last up to nine months.
Depending on the injection location and the amount of filler injected, you can expect bruising and swelling to last from two days to two weeks. That’s the main reason doctors recommend to schedule your appointment at least two weeks prior any important event like weddings or photoshoots.
If you want to reduce that downtime after the procedure, you should stop taking aspirin, vitamin E and Motrin two weeks prior the appointment. That will reduces bruising.
