Restylane® in Atlanta, GA
Restylane® is an advanced dermal filler that will revolutionize the way you view anti-aging treatments. Restylane® is an injectable filler that contains hyaluronic acid, effective for minimizing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Restylane® treatments are effective at slowing down the rate of aging on your face. The Atlanta Center for Breast and Aesthetic Surgery, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., offers Restylane® for men and women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a dermal filler that features hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid binds with naturally occurring water in our skin, which plumps the surface and improves overall skin hydration at the site. The overall effect is smoother, younger-looking skin on your face.
During the course of natural aging, the skin naturally creates decreasing amounts of hyaluronic acid, which leads to a loss of vitality and radiance. Without proper hydration, the skin becomes weak and thin, diminishing its underlying support structure. This loss in structure is what ultimately leads to folds, creases, and wrinkles on the face. Restylane® restores the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, thereby promoting optimal hydration in the skin’s deepest layers, mimicking natural skin processes. This increased hydration plumps up the skin, improving its volume and reducing the appearance of the most common signs of aging.

Restylane® provides our clients benefits ranging from enhanced appearance to improved self-confidence. Restylane® can be used on its own or in conjunction with other services, which can result in even more dramatic benefits. Some of the benefits that patients can enjoy with Restylane® include:

How Should I Prepare For Restylane®?
Restylane® is a very low-risk treatment and there is little to do in preparation because of its ease of application. Restylane® is FDA-approved and has been used safely in more than 10 million procedures. Restylane® is safe and effective when the injections are performed by a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Work. While Restylane® is made of natural ingredients and allergic reactions are exceedingly rare, you should still notify Dr. Work before the treatment if you have a history of allergic reactions or any ongoing health problems. As with all dermal fillers, please let Dr. Work know if you’ve recently had any other injections or are taking any medications or supplements. If you have any infections or visible sores, like rashes or fever blisters, we will recommend postponing the procedure until it is completely cleared for maximum safety and effectiveness.
How Is Restylane® Administered?
Restylane® is an injectable dermal filler administered in medical-grade needles. To begin the procedure, Dr. Work will use a topical anesthetic on your skin to minimize discomfort. The Restylane® gel will then be injected directly into your skin with an ultrafine needle. While some results are immediately visible, the full result will continue to manifest over time. In most cases, the results last up to one year.
How Much Do Restylane® Treatments Cost In Atlanta?
Restylane® treatment costs vary among clients depending on several factors, such as the number of injections administered. While it’s unlikely that your insurance will pay for the cost of this elective procedure, Dr. Work offers financing options to help with the affordability of this effective procedure. For your convenience, we accept cash, credit cards and personal checks for payment on all procedures.
