An alternative to more invasive cosmetic procedures: Restylane is the world’s best-selling dermal filler. Renowned cosmetic Dermatologist Dr. Simon Ourian M.D. is one of the most experienced Restylane injectors in the country, celebrated for achieving natural looking, rather than “done”, results.
March 19, 2009 — Dr. Simon Ourian’s experience as a pioneer with various non-surgical anti-aging procedures has made his Beverly Hills medical center a new magnet for patients eager to try Restylane.
“I was looking for the top Restylane doctor, ” explains Cheryl, a 44-year-old patient who chose Beverly Hills Restylane Dr. Ourian. “It’s because of him that I have fewer wrinkles. I look fresher.”
Ourian, founder of the Epione Medical Center, says his treatments of Restylane, a dermal filler, are also gaining popularity because “they are a quick boost. It’s an easy filler for your face in areas where you have lost elasticity. Restylane under the eyes is another popular treatment.”
Ourian, a MD and Medical Director of the Epione Medical Center in Beverly Hills, Calif. (the #1 Botox center in Southern California), is among the first cosmetic surgeons to pioneer the use of Restylane, as a result of his experience with Botox, Radiesse, collagen and non-invasive, aesthetic procedures.
“Restylane provides a safe alternative for people who are hesitant to try collagen, “ says Dr. Ourian. “Since the substance naturally occurs in humans, it is the safest filler on the market, and the results, lasting up to eighteen months, are immediate and look very natural.”
Ourian’s patients who want plump lips like Angelina Jolie or the youth of Britney Spears agree. They have seen how Restylane injections under the eyes reduce circles and wrinkles and how they plump lips that have become smaller with age.
Restylane before and after photographs show how these injections take off years. Restylane can be used to remove worry lines, smile lines, lines between the eyebrows and hollows under the eyes. It helps to reduce folds between the nose and the corners of the mouth. Restylane also works to build up the chin.
One of Dr. Ourian’s Los Angeles Restylane patients was astounded with the results.
“I was totally blown away, ” said Claire, 35, of Los Angeles, one of Dr. Ourian’s patients. “My wrinkles started to go away immediately. The lip augmentation was amazing. My lips are a lot fuller. Now I see before and after photos and I am so happy I had Dr. Ourian do this facial work.”
Ourian points out that Restylane cost is less than some other treatments and a fraction of the cost of plastic surgery. Restylane cost ranges vary depending on the area treated and results last up to eighteen months.
Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that exists in all living organisms. Since the acid is a natural component of connective tissues, including the skin, the skin does not react to the material. Restylane injections not only last longer than collagen, but don’t require allergy skin testing.
Pain during Restylane injections varies and depends of the sensitivity of the patient. The injections may prick a little but normally, no anesthesia is needed for treatment of wrinkles and folds. Most people report that the injections are relatively painless. For some a lip treatment may be uncomfortable and therefore, a nerve block is normally made.
Temporary Restylane swelling is possible. Rare Restylane side effects include temporary redness, swelling, itching or tenderness. Most of these effects last for only a couple of weeks. Restylane was launched in 1996. More than 10 million treatments have been completed since then. Before this, only collagen injections made from cow hide had been available.
Ourian won’t promise to make his patients into movie stars, “but if you bring me a photo of yourself five to ten years ago, I think that’s something we can achieve.”
