Restylane® in Atlanta, GA
Are you considering facial plastic surgery to reduce the fine lines, wrinkles and creases that have developed on your face? If you are unsure about undergoing surgery, Restylane® may be right for you. Dr. Cristen Catignani and Dr. Christopher Killingsworth, a double board-certified Atlanta plastic surgeon, achieve amazing results with Restylane® injections for patients in Cumming, Atlanta, Forsyth County and surrounding areas of Georgia who want to look younger without surgery.
Injections to Reduce Wrinkles and Improve Skin Texture
Many products are available to reduce lines, wrinkles and creases in your face, but Restylane® stands out from other injectable cosmetic products. Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid (HA) that binds with water to add volume to the skin and fill in lines and wrinkles. The water also hydrates the skin to keep it smooth and glowing. Like the HA that is in your skin right now, the HA is slowly absorbed by the body, so Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani will recommend follow-up treatments to keep your skin free of lines and wrinkles.
Benefits of Restylane®
Restylane® treatments at Atlanta Aesthetics are recommended for men and women who are at least 18 years of age and want to treat their:
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth
- Folds and creases in specific areas of the face
- Improve lips, cheeks and chin
- Correct lower eyelids that sag
Evaluation for Restylane® Treatments
Restylane® is considered safe for most men and women in the Atlanta area, but if you have an allergy to any products that are derived from certain types of proteins that are derived from bacteria, Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani may recommend an alternative treatment. Restylane® is adaptable to almost any type of cosmetic concern that results from aging and sun exposure, so most patients are good candidates for the treatments. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani describe the procedure, including the location of the injections and schedule for follow-up treatments.
The Restylane® Procedure
Restylane® is a dermal filler that is injected into the deeper layers of your skin to reach the origin of your lines, wrinkles and facial creases. The injections are performed using a very fine needle, so you will feel minimal discomfort during the treatments. Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani can apply a numbing cream to your skin if needed. The initial treatment normally takes 30 to 60 minutes, and your follow-up treatments may only take 10 to 20 minutes. Restylane® immediately improves your skin, but full results take some time, and the results will last up to one year. You may notice very minimal bleeding, bruising, swelling and tenderness for the first few days after the injections.
Atlanta Restylane® Cost and Financing Options
As a dermal filler product, the cost of Restylane® treatment depends on the amount of product that is used for each treatment, which Dr. Killingsworth or Dr. Catignani determines during your consultation. We accept payment by cash, personal check and major credit card. If you are interested in financing your Restylane® treatments, you can apply for CareCredit® and be approved before your consultation appointment or first treatment.
