Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you address initial signs of age, such as fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks. It may also improve severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain treatments have the anesthetic lidocaine so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Williams to prevent a negative reaction.
"Dr. Williams was awesome! I had plastic surgery from a nationally renowned surgeon in Houston and my incision got infected. Dr Williams treated me for the infection which required antibiotics and additional surgery to removed the infected tissue and another surgery to sew me back up. His work was neater and tighter than the first surgeon’s. I returned for more liposuction later and he did a wonderful job! His staff is very friendly and it’s super easy having procedures performed at his office. Everything was first rate!"- T.C. / Google / May 16, 2019

Soften Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane treatments are performed in the office at Plastic Surgery Center of Baton Rouge. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if desired. The filler is injected in your skin with a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to reduce inflammation. Every Restylane filler is injected with the same technique but on different areas treated based on your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect from Restylane
Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery period will vary based on what you are having treated so ask your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this typically fades away within a day. Bruising may occur, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments typically last around one year based on the formula selected.
