Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane® Eyelight?
If you are tired of looking tired due to dark under-eye circles, Restylane® Eyelight may be an ideal solution for you. Candidates for this treatment must be in good overall health and must understand the potential benefits and limitations of this treatment as explained by Dr. Emer during your consultation.
Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding will be advised to postpone Restylane® Eyelight treatments accordingly. Patients experiencing an active skin infection in or around the treatment site will need to wait to undergo this treatment until the condition has been resolved.
Is Restylane® Eyelight Only Used to Treat Under-Eye Concerns?
Restylane® Eyelight itself is uniquely designed to be injected in the tear trough area. However, Dr. Emer offers a full spectrum of dermal filler treatments to provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation. Depending on your concerns, he may recommend additional products from the Restylane® line of injectables, such as:
- Restylane® (original formula): A variety of facial applications, including smile lines, lips lines, and other wrinkles
- Restylane® Lyft: Midface (cheeks) and hands
- Restylane® Silk: Lip lines and lip volume
- Restylane® Kysse: Lip volume and upper perioral lines, also known as “smoker lines”
- Restylane® Refyne: Mild to moderate marionette and laugh lines
- Restylane® Defyne: Moderate to more severe marionette and laugh lines, as well as chin and jawline definition
In fact, your treatment plan could feature multiple types of Restylane® at the same time, if you wish to take care of more than one concern simultaneously. This would make for uniform, consistent results and fewer trips to the office. Restylane® fillers are often used in combination with other injectable therapies and even other types of treatments, such as lasers and chemical peels.
How Does Restylane® Eyelight Work?
The primary ingredient in Restylane® Eyelight is hyaluronic acid (HA), a water-attracting chemical already found naturally in the joints, eyes, and multiple other parts of the body. Injecting HA into the tear troughs concentrates nearby underlying water molecules, contributing to increased volume and skin flexibility.
The two other ingredients are BDDE and lidocaine. BDDE helps crosslink the chains of HA molecules, giving it a gel-like consistency. The lidocaine is for your comfort, reducing pain during treatment.
The Restylane® Eyelight Consultation
Before any treatment begins, you will need to meet with Dr. Emer for an initial consultation so that he can go over your medical history and allergies. Dr. Emer will also physically examine your facial structure and tissue and address any questions you may have. Dr. Emer will then create a unique treatment plan for you and review the details with you.
How to Prepare for a Restylane® Eyelight Session
You will receive preparation instructions prior to your appointment, though requirements are minimal. It is recommended that you avoid dehydrating foods and beverages (like salty snacks and alcohol) and take care to drink extra water for at least three days. If you are currently taking aspirin or ibuprofen, you will be advised to stop for 7-10 days before your procedure.
What to Expect During a Restylane® Eyelight Treatment
Your Restylane® Eyelight treatment will be performed in-office at Dr. Emer’s Beverly Hills practice. To begin, the tear troughs and surrounding areas are cleansed with an antiseptic solution. While the Eyelight formula does contain lidocaine, an additional topical numbing solution can be applied upon request.
Next, Dr. Emer will perform the necessary injections for your specific needs and aesthetic goals. Lastly, the treatment site may be lightly massaged to ensure the accurate distribution of the formula.
What to Expect After Restylane® Eyelight Injections
No downtime is necessary after Restylane® Eyelight; most patients return to work after their session is complete. Be sure not to touch the treatment area for at least six hours. You will also want to wait 24 hours before exercising.
You should notice the initial effects of Restylane® Eyelight within a few days. Final results can be expected in about 10-14 days.
You can expect to enjoy your enhanced look for a year or more. Dr. Emer will advise you of the optimal retreatment schedule for you for maintaining your more youthful look.
Is Restylane® Eyelight the Best Under-Eye Filler for Me?
Since every patient has unique needs and concerns, Restylane® Eyelight is not the only filler Dr. Emer uses to brighten and smooth the under-eye area. He considers many factors when selecting the ideal dermal filler for a patient, which is why every patient begins their treatment journey with an in-depth consultation.
In addition to Restylane® Eyelight, Dr. Emer often uses the following fillers to revitalize the tear trough area:
- Belotero® Balance
- Juvederm® Volbella
- RHA 2
- Revanesse® Versa
How Much Does Restylane® Eyelight Cost?
The cost of your Restylane® Eyelight treatment will depend on the number of injections required. Cost details will be provided during your consultation.
