Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who is looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs and goals. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Several formulas are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation with Dr. Lawrence to avoid a reaction.
"I had a few consultations before getting to Dr. Lawrence. Once it was over, my mom and I looked at each other and said "she's the one!". Her skill and knowledge seeps through when she talks to you. She handled me with such care and attention, almost in a maternal but professional way. I had my breast augmentation done during the COVID-19 pandemic so my support system wasn't allowed to come in with me. I was a little nervous about that but Dr. Lawrence and Nurse Angela, made me feel safe and protected. I hope I won't be needing anymore cosmetic surgery in the future but if I do, Dr. Lawrence is my first stop! Period! Side note: my boobs look soooooooooooooooooooooooo good! Thanks Dr. Lawrence, YOU DID THAT!"- V.N. / Yelp / May 08, 2020
"Very safe. Great location on ground floor. You must wear a mask, use hand sanitizer, no touch when paying. All paperwork done online before visit. Dr Lawrence very professional & was able to diagnose my problem & actually referred me to a general surgeon & offered her services if I still needed or wanted them. Thank you."- A.S. / Yelp / May 06, 2020
"Dr. Lawrence is one of a kind in her profession. I came in after suffering for 2.5 years from being ill due to breast implants and she was the first doctor who simply believed me. I had gone to so many doctors after my implants were put in with problems and not one of them agreed that my implants were the problem. I chose her because she believed me and I recommend her because she did an amazing job and I feel WONDERFUL!!"- N. / RealSelf / Mar 31, 2020

"Dr Lawrence is very good at listening to you and has such a great bedside manner. With that being said… she and her staff are great at what they do. I have been going to the sandy springs office for over a year and I am always met with a friendly smile and attitude from the time I walk until the time I leave. I would recommend this doctor and staff to anyone reading this review."- M.Z. / Google / Mar 04, 2020
Soften Lines and Wrinkles
Restylane dermal injections take place inside the treatment room at one of our facilities. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to decrease swelling. Each Restylane formula is administered with a similar technique but on different areas of the face targeted to fit your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect with Restylane®
When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep upright for at least the first night. Most patients will experience some improvements immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year, depending on the exact product used.
