Dr. Beam offers Restylane® treatments for patients in Glastonbury, New Britain, Hartford, New Haven and surrounding areas of Connecticut.
Restylane® is another attractive option for Hartford-area patients at Dr. Beam’s office. Unlike Botox® Cosmetic, Restylane® is a dermal filler, which means that it is used to physically fill in wrinkles. Restylane® is composed mainly of hyaluronic acid gel. This makes it doubly effective: it initially fills in wrinkles to smooth the skin, but as the body gradually absorbs the gel the hyaluronic acid moisturizes the skin, improving its texture and appearance. Restylane® is also a popular lip enhancement product.
What Can I Expect from Restylane® Treatments?
Like other injectables, Restylane® is quick and easy to administer. Treatment typically takes no more than an hour, and may be much briefer depending on the size of the area being treated. Patients usually call the treatment process painless, and though they may experience minor swelling and redness, these symptoms are almost always brief and minor.
Is Restylane® Right for Me?
Because hyaluronic acid is naturally present in the human body, there is very little danger of a negative reaction for patients who choose Restylane®. Further, Restylane® is cultivated in a laboratory, making it a very attractive alternative for those patients who are allergic to animal-derived collagen and similar products. Patients who have a history of bacterial allergy should choose another option instead of Restylane®, but almost any other Hartford-area skin care patient can safely use this powerful and convenient product.
How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
The cost for Restylane® is dependent on the number of syringes used for treatment. Insurance will not cover the cost of injectables! Dr. Beam and his staff can discuss all pricing and financing options with you at your initial consultation.
