Cosmetic injectables, such as Botox and dermal fillers, have revolutionized how patients approach rejuvenating their faces. While plastic surgery was once the only cosmetic treatment for achieving a more youthful appearance, cosmetic practitioners now rely on minimally-invasive injections to provide patients with immediate results.
Restylane Contour, a hyaluronic acid-based dermal filler, is specially designed to address issues in the midface. It is one of the most sought-after cosmetic procedures for patients dealing with cheek issues.
What is Restylane Contour?
Restylane Contour is a member of the Restylane family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. FDA-approved and released in 2021, this new formula is manufactured with xPreshan technology. This technology produces a firm, unique texture that provides support and increases volume while staying elastic enough for dynamic movement with every facial expression.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that plays a vital role in inducing collagen production and keeping the skin looking youthful. Restylane Contour is uniquely manufactured to provide both volume and flexible integration into the skin, allowing for natural-looking movements with every facial gesture.
It can be used both for cheek enhancement and correction of volume deficiencies in the midface region. While it was only approved recently in the United States, it has been in use in Europe and Canada for many years.
Restylane Contour is currently approved for cheek enhancement, support, and contouring, providing real-looking results in the midface region both when at rest and when active.
What are the benefits of Restylane Contour?
- Reverses volume loss from weight loss or aging
- Improves facial symmetry
- Provides the cheeks with definition without making them look ‘overfilled’
- Improves the appearance of sagging skin in the cheek region
- Clinical studies have shown that 99% of patients saw results that lasted as long as a year
- An alternative option for younger patients that don’t want surgery
- No recovery time
Who is a candidate for Restylane Contour treatment?
Ideal candidates for Restylane Contour injections are individuals that are at least 21 years of age, in good overall health, and have realistic expectations for the results of their dermal filler injections. Restylane Contour is a suitable treatment for patients from their mid-20s to late 70s. Virtually anybody can reap the benefits of facial rejuvenation treatment with Restylane Contour filler injections.
What is the procedure like?
Before undergoing dermal filler injections with Restylane Contour, patients have a consultation with their practitioner. During the consultation, patients get the chance to learn more about facial rejuvenation through the use of dermal fillers while asking about their specific skin issues and personal cosmetic goals.
Dermal fillers are typically administered with a needle or cannula for optimal aesthetic results. Restylane Contour should always be injected by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Before receiving the injections, it is recommended that patients cease all use of blood thinning medications, including Advil, aspirin, and Ibuprofen, as they could lead to side effects, such as bruising and swelling.
What is the recovery process like?
Restylane Contour does not require a lengthy recovery or downtime. The procedure is carried out entirely by dermal injections. Patients may experience slight redness or tenderness at the treatment sites, but these symptoms usually pass after a few days.
