One of the frequently used dermal fillers at Cosmetic Doctor in Dublin is Restylane, which is the most scientifically documented Hyaluronic Acid based dermal fillers in the world.

Restylane Used Worldwide

It’s been used in well over 12 million treatments worldwide, and comprehensive studies from a variety of medical and academic sources support its safety and efficacy, as well as overwhelmingly positive patient feedback globally.

Restylane is a FDA-approved dermal filler, and it’s made of a biodegradable, non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid (NASHA). Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in all living organisms, and it provides volume and fullness to your skin.

Completely Sterile; Lab-synthesised

It’s made in the laboratory in a totally sterile environment and doesn’t cause any allergic reactions as the body accepts it well. It’s a clear gel, and it has a mechanism that makes it helpful in improving the signs of aging.

Once injected, the gel integrates into dermal tissue where it attracts and binds water molecules, which helps maintain volume. Usually indicated for mid-to-deep dermal implantation to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds; Restylane is also indicated for lip augmentation.

Each patient’s needs vary, so Cosmetic Doctor will assess you carefully to determine the best use and placement of Restylane, alone or in conjunction with another product to attain the most natural look and diminish signs of aging. Results are visible immediately.

Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue. It usually takes about 6 months but it varies by patient, area and amount used.

Treatment Areas

Dermal fillers can be used to smooth away facial lines and wrinkles, create fuller lips and shape facial contours, such as cheeks and chin, and revitalise the skin.

  • Nose to mouth lines (the nasolabial folds)
  • Between the eyebrows (the glabella lines)
  • Lips (adding volume and shape)
Your Consultation

During the initial consultation at Cosmetic Doctor, Dr. Fay will discuss your treatment expectations. After discussion of what you wish to achieve and assessment of your treatment needs, she’ll recommend which dermal filler treatment is most suitable for you.

The Procedure

Depending on which dermal filler Dr. Fay is using, she will inject using either a fine needle or a cannula. In the case of Restylane, the gel provides natural volume to smooth away the appearance of lines and wrinkles, enhance facial shape, or create fuller lips.

Dermal filler products are great for improving the overall elasticity and texture of skin, and help restore the skins hydrobalance.

The treatment is quick, typically taking about 15-30 minutes. Treatment with dermal fillers does not affect facial expression and the benefits can normally be seen instantly.

After the Procedure

Dermal filler products are biodegradable, which means they will naturally disappear in the body. Most patients will need top-up treatments after 6-12 months to keep their optimal results.
