Preparing for Restylane®
To help you properly prepare for your treatment, you may be asked to refrain from smoking and avoid taking any aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs as they may increase bleeding.

Restylane® Recovery
Downtime is generally minimal and you should feel little, if any, discomfort. As with any kind of injection, there may be a small bruise, temporary redness, or little bumps which will disappear quickly over a few days. The full effects of the injection can take up to a few weeks to develop, but many patients notice a difference right away.

How Much Does Restylane® Cost?
Costs for your Restylane® treatment will vary depending on the number of treatments needed to achieve your desired result. Most insurance plans do not cover plastic surgery or specific cosmetic treatments. Dr. Swift accepts payment via cash, check, or credit card, as well as Alphaeon Healthcare Lending as a financing option.
