The Procedure

On the day of your appointment, Dr. Jennifer Janiga or nurse practitioner Darci Page NP-C will apply a topical numbing medication to the desired treatment area. Once the medication has set for at least 30 minutes, the treatment will begin.

All Restylane® fillers must be injected under the skin. There is a mild amount of discomfort associated with the procedure, but usually this is mitigated by the topical medication as well as the anesthetic lidocaine found within the solution.

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes.

 

Restylane

Restylane is a hyaluronic filler that has many different capabilities.

At Janiga MDs, Dr. Timothy Janiga specializes in plastic surgery and Dr. Jennifer Janiga specializes in dermatology, giving their practice a unique, comprehensive perspective on their patients’ cosmetic needs in the Reno, Nevada area.

Recovery & Results

A small amount of bruising may last from three to ten days depending on the individual’s healing rate. There will be some redness and swelling for two to three days. Mild discomfort may remain in the area for a day or two and can be relieved with over-the-counter pain relievers.

The risk of bruising can be decreased by avoiding blood-thinning medications for two weeks prior to your treatment. If you are prescribed a blood thinner, please do not stop taking them without first discussing it with the doctor who prescribed them.

If desired, applying a cool compress to swollen areas may reduce swelling and physical discomfort. Avoid, rubbing, picking, squeezing or manipulating the skin or filler underneath. Also, try to avoid vigorous exercise or activities for at least 48 hours after your procedure.

Restylane® treatment results last between six to twelve months depending on the area it is placed.
