Restylane is one of the top choices in Ottawa and throughout Canada for use on a variety of areas of the face. Restylane, an injectable dermal filler, uses hyaluronic acid to fill in wrinkles and restore lost volume in places including the cheeks, lips, and forehead. Our bodies naturally produce hyaluronic acid, a chemical that aids in tissue repair. But as we age, production of this important substance decreases, leading to some of the visual signs of aging.
Because Restylane is non-surgical and temporary, it's a great choice for patients who are concerned by lines and wrinkles on the face but are not ready to commit to a surgical procedure. A single Restylane treatment can last for up to 12 months.
To learn more about Restylane injections in Ottawa, Ontario, please request a consultation or call Dr. Silverman's office at (613) 792-4137. He looks forward to helping you achieve your cosmetic goals.
Because Restylane's active ingredient is a substance already found in the human body, no allergy test is required before a treatment. Restylane is administered in small amounts using a very fine needle, which keeps the procedure comfortable for most patients. Most Restylane appointments last between 30-45 minutes, and patients may return to their normal activities immediately afterward. The results of a single Restylane treatment are visible immediately.
