Before treatment I will always spend time discussing with you the desired effect. Sometimes you might need both treatments described below, Restylane Touch and Botox to achieve the effect you are looking for.
Restylane Touch is intended for the correction of thin, superficial facial lines, e.g. around the eyes.
The injected crystal-clear NASHA gel gives natural volume under the wrinkle, which is lifted up and smoothed out. A treatment takes a few minutes and the results can be seen immediately.
Restylane Touch is long lasting but not permanent. You always have a choice to continue or change the combination of treatments - and the procedure can be repeated as often as you like.
Most patients choose to have a follow-up treatment 6 to 12 months after an initial treatment of wrinkles. A follow-up treatment is normally needed after about 6 months.
A touch-up treatment within 2-4 weeks after the initial treatment may be necessary to achieve an optimal correction.
Clinical experience indicates that follow-up treatment normally require a smaller amount of the product.
"I always return to Dr Rakus for my Botox treatment because I trust her immensely - she always does such an extraordinary job! It's such a pleasure to be greeted so warmly by her exceptional staff. They always remember my name which means a lot. I truly wouldn't put myself in the hand of anyone else.
Dr Rakus is truly the best!"
