Restylane® Contour in Wilmington, NC
It happens to all of us: as we age, we lose definition in our cheeks. We begin to see wrinkles and drooping skin. It’s a perfectly normal part of life. However, we don’t have to accept it.
Enter Restylane® Contour: a dermal filler that redefines and fills your cheeks, smooths skin, and provides natural-looking results that accentuate your genuine smile.
What Is Restylane® Contour?
Restylane® Contour is a specially-formulated dermal filler designed to enhance and increase volume in your cheek area. An alternative to surgery or other more involved solutions, Contour allows you to replenish natural compounds to your cheeks with simple injections for fuller cheeks and bigger smiles.
Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a naturally-occurring sugar that gives your skin volume — but is lost as you age. It’s also Restylane® Contour’s primary ingredient! By replacing your cheeks’ depleted HA via a non-surgical treatment, you can enhance your appearance with little downtime and lasting results.

How Does Restylane® Contour Work?
There are a few steps we take to ensure that you get tailored, optimal results. We’ll go through the complete process during a free consultation, but we can say here that treatment is quick, downtime is minimal, and you can have gorgeous, natural-looking volume restored to your cheeks in no time.
Before Restylane<sup>®</sup> Contour
Prior to treatment, your doctor will discuss your medical history during a free consultation and assess how Restylane® Contour can help you achieve your aesthetic goals. They’ll also take photos and inform you about what to expect from the procedure itself.
During Restylane<sup>®</sup> Contour
On the day of your appointment, we’ll clean your skin and apply a topical anesthetic to numb the area. Your injections will also have lidocaine for your comfort. Your doctor will apply a predetermined number of syringes to your precise treatment areas to ensure your cheeks look as natural as they look full.
After Restylane<sup>®</sup> Contour
You may experience some brief swelling or redness for the first few days. You’ll begin to see results soon after, and have that lovely, natural-looking volume after about 12 weeks. Your doctor will give you some post-treatment instructions to ensure optimal results.
What to Expect from Restylane® Contour Treatment
Restylane® Contour adds significant, natural-looking volume to your cheeks, and its effectiveness has been backed by scientific study: virtually all patients experience an improvement in appearance and volume in their cheeks and midface. Just as importantly, these results last — improvement was present at both 12 weeks and 12 months post-treatment.
Of course, application matters. Your aesthetic expert will closely examine your cheeks prior to treatment to ensure that you get the right amount of filler, applied at the right places, for outcomes you’ll love.
Am I a Candidate for Restylane® Contour?
Most people who want to return volume to their cheeks make very good candidates for Restylane® Contour. It can even provide a preventative boost to people who want to maintain their current volume and cheek contour for years to come.
There are a few simple requirements: You must be over the age of 21, not pregnant or nursing, and have no allergies to lidocaine or HA. We’ll discuss during your free consultation whether Restlyane® Contour or another solution is best for you.
