Restylane-L Injected W/ Extra Lidocaine and Epinephrine; Is This Safe?
I recently consulted with a board certified facial plastic surgeon about Restylane injections in the lower eyelid/upper cheek area. He explained to me that he uses Restylane-L and also mixes in some additional lidocaine and epinephrine to reduce the possibility of bruising. This sounds great, but it also makes me nervous adding in multiple compounds and increasing the probability of a reaction. Is this a common practice for Restylane injections, and is it anything at all to be concerned about?
