Below, Dr. Ryan Alan Schuering and his team of trained providers review Restylane injections and how they provide definition to the mid-face. Call Spyglass Dermatology in Tequesta, FL to book a consultation. We know what it takes to rejuvenate your skin and restore volume where needed.

Does your face lack volume or definition?

Have you noticed some changes in your cheeks as you age? As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and volume due to collagen and elastin breakdown. This decrease leads to frustrating issues such as volume loss and sagging in the mid-face.

In addition to aging, factors like genetics, sun damage, and weight loss also contribute to a loss of definition or structure in the cheeks. You may even look in the mirror and see a different person staring back. Instead, dermal fillers like Restylane can provide significant improvements in volume and contouring, giving you a refreshed look.

How Restylane stands apart from other fillers

The Restylane brand offers various dermal fillers designed to address specific concerns, such as fine lines, creases, thin lips, and sunken cheeks. Restylane Lyft, in particular, is a popular choice for cheek contouring and structural support.

Restylane fillers contain hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance that helps the treated areas retain moisture and volume. While many kinds of dermal fillers are on the market, Restylane has a long track record of safety and effectiveness.

What to expect during Restylane injections

Before your procedure, Dr. Schuering or one of our knowledgeable providers will perform an assessment in Tequesta, FL. This is a great opportunity to discuss your aesthetic concerns and develop a custom treatment plan. We then carefully administer Restylane Lyft into specific areas of the cheeks to enhance volume. The injections are relatively quick and well-tolerated.

Some patients experience mild swelling at the injection sites, but this should subside within several days. Results are seen almost immediately and only continue to improve as the filler settles into place. Restylane injections last from 6 – 18 months, making it a long-lasting option for cheek contouring.

Your expected Restylane Lyft results

Keep in mind that while dermal fillers provide excellent results, they're not necessarily a substitute for facelift surgery or other invasive procedures. However, they are a minimally invasive way to achieve noticeable improvements without the risks or downtime. And with regular maintenance appointments, you can keep your outcomes for as long as you want.

In addition to cheek contouring, Restylane can also address other concerns like nasolabial folds (smile lines), marionette lines (lines around the mouth), and under-eye hollows. At Spyglass Dermatology, we specialize in creating natural-looking results that enhance your unique facial features.
