What is Restylane SubQ
Restylane Sub Q is the brand name for an injectable form of hyaluronic acid specially formulated for facial contouring. Hyaluronic acid is a sugar that is found in the connective tissue of our skin and along with collagen forms the building blocks of healthy tissues. As it is totally natural component of our skin, no allergy test is required. The result from the treatment is immediate and can last more than a year.
How is it different from other dermal fillers such as restylane, perlane or Juvederm ultra?
It is different from other fillers which are commonly uses to soften lines and wrinkles. Restylane Sub Q has larger particles and is injected in a deeper plane to achieve a lifting and filling effect on cheeks and chin.
What are the advantages of Sub Q over surgery?
A face lift only tightens loose skin; it does not replace lost volume
from the face which is probably the most important component of facial
ageing. It will not improve skin texture or tone
either. Plastic surgeons have realised this as well and are increasingly
using volumisation of the face in addition to skin tightening which
if performed without volume restoration gives a tight but not a natural
look. We prefer a natural look for our clients.
Restylane Sub Q can lift your face in an instant. As a seconday lifting effect areas on lower face and nose to mouth lines appear less prominent. It is performed under local anaesthesia and takes about 30 minutes. It is an alternative to permanent cheek implants which can be problematic as they sometimes cause infection or move, creating asymmetry in the face. Although fat can be used to transfer into the face and add volume, deep filler is the only method available to achieve a similar result without the need for surgery.
Will I bruise?
There is always a slight possibility of bruising after a filler procedure but Dr Gheyi uses a cannula which has certain advantages over needle injections and most of our patients go back to the normal daily routine immediately after the procedure. It is very rare to have any bruising at all with this procedure. It is best to avoid taking aspirin or anti-inflammatory medications for upto seven days prior to Restylane Sub Q liquid facelift.

What other fillers can be used instead of SubQ?
Juvederm Voluma, Emervel Volume and Teosyal Ultimate are other deeper fillers that can be used as an alternative. Radiesse can also be used for volume enhancement.
What other facelift options do you offer?
We offer radio frequency skin tightening, CO2 laser resurfacing, a one stitch facelift , silhouette lift or the innovative laser facelift. These procedures can provide very effective, nice and noticeable results.
