If you’ve started noticing signs of aging, then it’s important to know that you’ve got excellent options that don’t require surgery or downtime. Dermal fillers are one great way to restore volume that contributes to sagging and fine lines with a simple injection session at our Fargo office.
What is Restylane?
The process of aging means that your body’s restorative functions begin to slow down over time. When it comes to your skin, the matrix of collagen and elastin that gives it support and youthfulness begins to become less effective at renewing itself and lacks new collagen. Restylane® is an injectable filler made with hyaluronic acid that can be injected under the surface of the skin to add volume and fill in wrinkles and folds. Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally found in the skin that is responsible for retaining moisture and suppleness. In a crystal-clear gel form, it can provide volume while still allowing for natural movement.
How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane can be injected under the skin during a quick and easy treatment session at our Fargo office. We can supply a topical numbing cream so that you’re comfortable during this process. Once the product is injected under the skin, it can produce temporary volume, filling in lines and folds. Hyaluronic acid is an excellent option for anti-aging treatments because it can be safely and effectively absorbed into the body over time. You’ll see results immediately after treatment and won’t require any downtime, meaning you can get right back to your regular schedule.
I've been going to Dr Ness for 5 years. I have a family history of melanoma and she takes great care of me. As an extra bonus, I started using her skin care products a few months ago and my skin looks better than it has in years!
After treatment, you might experience some minor redness and swelling at your injection sites, but this usually subsides quickly. Any discomfort can be managed with an ice pack, especially if you opt for lip enhancement. Restylane can last for eighteen months or more, depending on your treatment area and anatomy, after which you can opt for retreatment. For best results, Dr. Ness can recommend additional skincare and injectable treatments to boost your look without surgery. We can also recommend the best in our full line of in-house products to address your concern areas and extend your results.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can Restylane cause blindness?
Filler around the eyes should only be performed by an experienced injector. Extra precautions should be taken when injecting any fillers near the eyes.
Can you mix Juvederm and Restylane?
We recommend making a consultation with one of our experienced injectors to determine your treatment plan. Sometimes two fillers are used at the same appointment, but typically used in different areas.
