Which product is right for me?
For optimal results, combinations of both Restylane/Perlane and Botox® are often used. Dr. Sedgh will help you determine which products or product combinations will give you the look you want.
Injectable products are being used in place of implants and surgery. A small touch of additional volume can make a substantial difference in your appearance. An "injectable chin implant" instantly transform a "weak" chin into one that helps balance your facial contours and profile.
How long will it last?
How long a treatment holds its effect is very individual. This depends on many factors, such as your age, skin type, life style and muscle activity, as well as on the injection technique.
Restylane will typically last about 6 months and typically longer. When completely absorbed the gel disappears unnoticed from the body. After lip treatments, Dr. Sedgh recommends a follow up treatment after approximately 6 months. This should only be considered as a guideline as the length of time Restylane lasts can depend on many contributing factors.

Facts about Restylane and Perlane
For wrinkle treatments a topical anesthetic is used. When enhancing the lips, pain relief in the form of an injected lip nerve block - similar to pain blocks given by a dentist.
The ability of Restylane products to integrate with adjacent tissues allows the free passage of vital nutritive elements like oxygen and hormones to pass between fragments of the gel. The result is healthy, natural looking skin with no obstructive elements to compromise skin tissue.
Common Post-Injection Response
Some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, bruising and tenderness at the implant site. These typically resolve spontaneously within one to two days after injection into the skin and within a week after injection into the lips.
Other types of reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 2000 treated patients have experienced localized reactions thought to be of a hypersensitivity nature. These have usually consisted of swelling at the implant site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These reactions have either started a few days after injection or after a delay of two to four weeks, and have generally been described as mild to moderate and self-limiting with an average duration of two weeks.
