Restore the youthful fullness and elasticity of your skin by visiting board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John A. Kotis at his conveniently located Chicago and Arlington Heights, IL offices. Dr. Kotis helps restore volume to your face with Restylane® treatments in just one, short and effective treatment.
Restylane® is a dermal filler used to restore volume and fullness to moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is a non-animal based hyaluronic acid that exists naturally in the human body, thus eliminating allergic reactions.
Restylane® adds the amount of HA to your body to attract and retain water naturally occurring in your face and lips, so you achieve maximum volume and hydration as when you were younger. The treatment is simple and convenient, and it can be administered without pretesting. Best of all, the results are almost instantaneous.
Restylane® is recommended for those who do not want or need surgery, or as a complement to surgery already scheduled or completed.
Offered as an alternative to lip augmentation or lip implants, patients who choose Restylane® enjoy the following benefits:
Treatment time is less than an hour
Minimal discomfort during treatment
Return to normal routines immediately after treatment
Restylane® results are long lasting, giving skin a more youthful appearance for six months or longer. Restylane® is recommended for treating facial creases, folds, and small wrinkles, including laugh and frown lines, crow feet, scarring depression and marionette lines.
Unlike collagen treatments, Restylane® is safe and effective for most patients. As a result, Restylane® can be used as part of your treatment plan without an allergic skin test prior to use.
On your day of treatment, Dr. Kotis injects Restylane® into the treatment area. Since Restylane® injections include lidocaine as an ingredient, little discomfort is felt during your treatment appointment.
You may return to your normal work or activity routine immediately after your Restylane® treatment. As with any dermal filler and injectable treatment, you may experience some bruising and swelling, but this usually goes away within a day of treatment. Ice packs can be used throughout the day to minimize thease symptoms and increase your comfort.
As a safe alternative to invasive surgery, Restylane® treatment results are noticed immediately and last between six to 12 months. Restylane® is an all-natural formula with no animal-based products. As a result, the product is naturally absorbed by the body.
Costs for Restylane® are contingent on your desired results. Dr. Kotis can discuss your treatment plan and expected number of treatments during your consultation.
