Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any woman or man older than 21 looking to rejuvenate their overall appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs, concerns, and goals. Restylane can address the telltale signs of aging, such as fine lines on your face. It can also improve the fullness in your cheeks and lips along with moderate or severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several of these treatments are mixed with lidocaine (a local anesthetic) so it's important that you discuss any allergies you have with your medical injector during your pre-treatment consultation to prevent a potentially negative reaction.
"I've been coming to Body and Beauty Lab for the past few months now. Michelle who is an incredible aesthetian has been doing my hydroquinone peels. She has worked miracles improving my areas of hyperpigmentation and evening my skin tone. Today I saw Sarah for filler for marionette lines around my mouth. She is a perfectionist and talented injector. She developed a plan for improving issues I wanted to address and was very clear regarding price and reasonable improvement I could expect. Everyone there is professional and have a genuine concern to help you meet your goals. Def will continue to come here"- M.R. / Yelp / Feb 20, 2020
"I had my first Botox injections with Sarah Sidiqi at her previous office/medspa and followed her to Body & Beauty Lab for my 2nd treatment. I have been very happy with my results and will return for my upkeep. I am able to use Aspire Galderma Rewards points here to save on the cost and they frequently advertise deals for injections and other services. Good value and great results!"- D.D. / Yelp / Nov 30, 2018

Soften Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane dermal injections are performed in a treatment room at Body+Beauty Lab. A numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas for greater comfort if you have any concerns about pain. The treatment is injected into your skin with a very fine needle and gently massaged so that it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to decrease inflammation. Every Restylane formula is injected with a similar technique but on different areas to suit your unique concerns and goals.
What to Expect with Restylane®
Once your Restylane procedure is completed, you can resume your typical routines. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what you are having treated so it's important to ask your injector what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising may appear, but this can be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 1 – 2 days and you should sleep with your head propped up for at least the first night. Many patients will experience visible changes right after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks for your final results to become visible. The outcomes reaped from Restylane treatments generally last about one year, depending on the formula used.
