I am having a complication from a Restylane treatment and my wedding is in six weeks. What should I do?
Wanting to look your best for your wedding day is something everyone is entitled to. In the event that you experience unwanted effects from your Restylane® treatment, hyaluronidase makes it easy to adjust hyaluronic acid fillers like Restylane, Juvederm®, and Perlane®. In most cases its best to return to your original doctor who should be eager to make sure you are happy with your treatment and outcomes. However, there are circumstances where there is simply no substitute for seeing a leading expert to help you get the results you need.
Seeking a second opinion
Dr. Steinsapir often sees individuals frustrated with treatments they received elsewhere. Surprisingly, many people are not aware that the hyaluronic acid fillers can be adjusted using the enzyme hyaluronidase. This enzyme is delivered with a small injection during a very comfortable office visit. Dr. Steinsapir has helped people who put up with unsatisfactory treatments for much longer than they need to. These issues are easily dealt with using the enzyme in one or two visits. It is the ability to make these adjustments that makes it feasible to provide many of the advanced filler services.
Correcting the problem
Restylane is a long-lasting, but not permanent sugar-gel facial filler that is preferred for improving facial contours due to its natural results, even in sensitive areas like dark circles under the eyes and the lip edge. Restylane and Perlane offer the ability to modify results when necessary. This includes treatments that were performed in the past and need fine-tuning. The ability to adjust a treatment with an enzyme can take a good treatment and make it great. In some cases, as the body slowly breaks down the material over time, slight irregularities may develop despite the initial quality of the treatment. Sometimes, the answer is adding filler rather than subtracting volume. For this reason, it is best to start with a detailed assessment with an expert like Dr. Steinsapir.
Restylane has long-term benefits and it is also easily adjusted even long after a treatment. These characteristics are essential in the eyelid and surrounding areas. The skin here is very thin and the tissues are very sensitive, so even small issues show up. Don’t live with a treatment that isn’t everything you want it to be.
