Restylane is a highly versatile injectable dermal filler that can immediately restore lost volume from aging and smooth out moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. Composed of a highly biocompatible hyaluronic acid base, Restylane acts very much like the body’s naturally occurring hyaluronic acid, instantly hydrating the affected areas to visibly smooth out folds and add definition and fullness to aging areas of the face.
How it Works
The skilled procedure provider determines the trouble areas where Restylane will be administered and these areas can be numbed using a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort during the procedure. Small amounts of the Restylane will then be injected into these areas and distributed evenly using very gentle pressure. Each session will take about 45 minutes to complete depending on the extent of correction to be done.
Areas of Treatment
Restylane is a very effective and flexible filler. It can be used for the tear trough, to soften temples, nasolabial folds and marionette lines, for cheek augmentation, plumper, more youthful lips and even to enhance the jawline.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW LONG WILL THE RESULTS LAST?
The results obtained with the initial treatment with Restylane will be immediately noticeable right after the procedure and will last 9 to 12 months. We like to have our filler patients to return to the office for follow up at 2 weeks to one month.
COMMON POST PROCEDURE CONCERNS
The most common side effects with Restylane include tenderness, redness, swelling and bruising at the injection sites. These are expected to improve within a week. We do our best to minimize bruising during the treatment and will always apply arnica, ice and send you home with specific post care instructions to expedite your healing.
Patients that experience sudden pain or persistent issues at the site of injection are advised to seek immediate medical attention to prevent further complication.
