Restylane in Edmonton
The fastest and easiest way to eliminate wrinkles is with a filler. One popular option is Restylane, an FDA-approved hyaluronic acid filler brand. Restylane in Edmonton is designed to effectively eliminate wrinkles on the face and can be used to plump lips. Restylane by Dr. Kamal, Ph.D., is a fast, effective, and relatively inexpensive way to get the beautiful results you need without the downtime and risk of plastic surgery.
Restylane; animal-free hyaluronic acid
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that can give your skin a more youthful appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a clear gel substance that’s found in human skin, but as we age, our bodies slow down production of it. This loss of hyaluronic acid causes loss of volume in the face, which creates the appearance of wrinkles.
Using the Restylane line of hyaluronic acid fillers, Dr. Kamal Alhallak, Doctorate in Pharmacy at Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton, Alberta, is able to eliminate lines around the nose, eyes, lips, and fill cheeks, chin and more.
Restylane in Edmonton is injected deep into the tissue by Dr. Kamal. It rests in the dermis, pushing wrinkles out. Because the procedure is an injection, there is little to no recovery. The results are temporary but have been found to last for as long as 18 to 24 months, according to the Restylane website.
Dr. Kamal starts with a topical anesthetic. He then carefully injects the appropriate Restylane product under the skin. The results are instantaneous and, because there is very little trauma to the tissue, there is almost no swelling.
Restylane in Edmonton offers a line of different products to be used in different parts of the face. The hyaluronic acid in the various formulations have different consistencies. Each product has been designed for a specific part of the body.
Types of Restylane in Edmonton
Defyne is specifically designed for nasolabial folds and “marionette” lines. Unlike Botox, or botulinum toxin injections, Restylane allows for a full range of facial expressions. Where Botox paralyzes the muscles to smooth the skin, Restylane actually plumps it and nourishes it.
Refyne is another nasolabial treatment that has a slightly different consistency.
Volyme is designed to add volume to parts of the face that tend to shrink as we age. Cheeks and chin tend to become more sunken in because our skin produces less hyaluronic acid over time. Dr. Kamal will add Volyme to patients cheeks, chin and jawline to restore the fullness of that youthful look. For many of us, it’s the loss of volume in the face that makes us look older, even if we don’t have fine lines and wrinkles.
Kysse, manufactured by Restylane, is specifically designed to add volume to lips. It adds fullness to the body of the lip and restores lip definition. As we age, the borders of our lips tend to deflate. This causes the lip to look less clear and much older. Restylane’s Kysse is designed to restore the fullness of the lips with hyaluronic acid. The effects last for six to twelve months. Click here to see more of our amazing lip fillers results.

“Nearly everyone that chooses Restylane will come back for it again,” says Dr. Kamal Alhallak, Doctorate in Pharmacy from Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton, Alberta. “It’s a natural, animal-free product that gives our patients excellent results without a long recovery time. While some people consider plastic surgery, most find the results of fillers to be just as effective and have many fewer complications.”
Restylane products are made without the need for extracting it from animal tissue, decreasing the likelihood of rejection and making it a suitable option for vegetarians.
Safety of Restylane in Edmonton
Side effects from Restylane
The primary side effect of Restylane injections is temporary bruising. There have been rare reports of granulomas or small lumps of hyaluronic acid. These granulomas can be eliminated quickly using hyaluronidase, an enzyme that speeds the breakdown of hyaluronic acid.
Other than that, several long-term studies have shown no side effects. It shouldn’t be used anywhere that one has skin disease or inflammation. It should also be avoided by women who are nursing or pregnant.
Before and After Your Restylane Treatment in Edmonton
Before your Restylane treatment, Dr. Kamal will inspect your skin, make sure that there are no medical concerns. In your consultation, he will suggest which products to go with.
The area is sterilized and then a topical anesthetic is applied. Many of the Restylane formations have anesthetics included in them, making them even more comfortable during the injection process.
We use a special needle from TSK for fillers and Botox injections. Hence, there is very little damage to the skin or the tissue. Dr. Kamal, Ph.D., will slowly inject the Restylane into the lower levels of the dermis, plumping the area.
After extracting the needle, the injector wipes the area clean and then the patient will remain in the seat for a few minutes. Dr. Kamal and his staff will look for any bruising that might arise. Moreover, they provide the patients with additional information on what to look for after their treatment.
It’s recommended that the patient apply a bit of ice to reduce bruising and swelling, but these conditions will disappear on their own in a matter of days.
Treatments with Restylane last for a minimum of six months but could show a positive effect for up to 12 months. Because Restylane duplicates a natural process, you can receive the injection repeatedly without any negative effects. Once the hyaluronic acid has been broken down by the body, patients can return to Albany Laser and Cosmetic Center in Edmonton for further treatments.
