Looking to erase smile lines or fill in acne scarring?
At Bay Dermatology Centre, we specialize in achieving, restoring, and maintaining beauty through science. Scientific research has shown that products containing bioactive ingredients which interact with living tissues, like Restylane®, can benefit damaged and aging skin. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane® is almost identical to that produced naturally in all living things. Your body’s concentration of hyaluronic acid declines with age, causing some areas of your face and hands to appear hollow or sunken.
At Bay Dermatology Centre, we offer the full line of Restylane® products, including Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne and Refyne, and Restylane Silk.
Restylane® injections help restore your skin to a more youthful shape and volume. Our Dermatologists recommend Restylane® to soften smile lines, fill in acne scars, correct asymmetrical features, or add volume to your lips and hands.
Restylane® treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to perform. Most people find the treatment relatively painless, but you may notice a slight pricking sensation during the injection. Depending on the area you’re treating, a topical or numbing injection may be available. Reactions to Restylane® are rare, but mild side effects may include swelling, tenderness, pain, itching, and discomfort around the injection site. Minor bruising may occur and disappear within a few days.
How long Does Restylane® Last?
You can expect to see immediate visible changes, and the results may be long lasting depending on factors like skin structure and age. Most people choose to repeat Restylane® injection treatments every six months. We also offer a variety of other longer lasting wrinkle filler treatments to achieve your facial rejuvenation goals.
Over time, the natural fat found in our cheeks begins to deteriorate, causing sagging skin, wrinkles, and a loss of facial volume. Restylane® Lyft works to correct these signs of aging in patients 21 years and older. Made up of hyaluronic acid gel, Restylane® Lyft is designed to add fullness to the mid-face area, which can create a younger, natural-looking improvement.
Restyalne® Lyft is made with lidocaine for improved comfort during injections. During treatment, Restylane® Lyft will be injected into the skin using a fine needle. Results can last up to six months, and patients can schedule touch-up appointments to maintain their results.
Restylane® Refyne and Defyne
Throughout our lives, facial expressions and movement can cause smile and laugh lines. Restylane® Refyne and Defyne fillers can soften the appearance of both nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Both Restylane® Refyne and Defyne are hyaluronic acid based fillers meant to treat patients 21 years and older. The difference between the two fillers is the severity of lines that they treat. While Restylane® Refyne is meant to treat mild to moderate facial lines, Restylane® Defyne treats moderate to severe lines and folds.
These fillers were created using XpresHAn Technology to create a flexible gel consistency, allowing the fillers to move with the face. This creates a natural look that patients desire. Results from both fillers can last up to 12 months.
Restylane® Silk is a great option for patients who wish to add definition and volume to their lips or treat wrinkles around the mouth for a more youthful appearance. As opposed to other fillers, Restylane® Silk provides the most natural looking augmentation, so you don’t need to worry about an overdone look. This filler is combined with lidocaine, which helps to make the injection process a comfortable one.
Most patients can begin to see an increase in lip fullness 14 days after treatment, as well as smoother skin around the injection areas. Results can last up to six months.
