Dermatology + Plastic Surgery is excited to offer Restylane Contour, an FDA-approved dermal filler designed specifically for filling out the medial cheeks, helping the under-eye area look more refreshed, and correcting the contour of the midface. The Restylane family of products is growing, with advanced hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers formulated for precise, customizable treatments for many areas of the face.
What is Restylane Contour?
Restylane Contour is an HA filler that is FDA-approved for cheek augmentation and dynamic contouring of the midface. Restylane’s proprietary XpresHAn Technology allows this formula to ensure natural-looking movement and feeling, emphasizing your natural beauty rather than over-filling your face. This formula helps elevate, support, and restore a full and youthful appearance with only a conservative amount of filler.
The XpresHAn technology creates a smooth injectable gel that gives skin a smooth, softer look with long-lasting results. Restylane Contour provides a softer appearance than other Restylane products, such as Restylane Lyft, which is used for more precise changes in structure and projection. Both Restylane Lyft and Restylane Contour are often used together for best results.
Who is a Good Candidate for Restylane Contour?
Nearly anyone over the age of 21 can have Restylane Contour if they are unsatisfied with the appearance of their midface contour, such as hollow cheeks. In clinical trials, there were very few reports of side effects, and nearly all were mild and went away in a day or two. Because the active ingredient, hyaluronic acid, occurs naturally in the skin, there is less risk of infection or reaction.
How Long Does Restylane Contour Last?
The length of your results after receiving injections of Restylane Contour depends on several factors, including the number of treatment sessions, the amount of product used, desired results, and the patient’s metabolism. Patients who previously received Contour reported their results lasted up to a year before needing re-treatment.
What is Restylane Contour Treatment Like?
Prior to receiving injections of Restylane Contour, you’ll first have a consultation with the doctor or one of her patient educators about your concerns, goals, and reasons for seeking treatment. After performing an examination and marking the treatment area, Dr. Saluja will make the injections throughout the cheeks into different layers of skin. The process takes less than an hour and produces immediate results with no downtime.
Patients can expect mild bruising or swelling for up to two weeks after treatment, and Dr. Saluja may instruct you to not take certain blood thinners in the days leading up to the procedure, arrive without makeup on the day of treatment, and avoid dental infections for two weeks around the procedure.
