These fillers are made of a natural, safe material, normally present in your skin and give long-lasting results.
What is a Restylane® injection?
Restylane® is a filler composed of hyaluronic acid, similar to Juvederm®. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in living beings and is responsible for providing fullness and volume to the skin. This filler is a gel form of the hyaluronic acid and is strategically injected into the skin to help you achieve fullness in your lips or to smooth out lines and wrinkles around the mouth, also known as “parentheses lines”. Restylane® injection may be performed with a numbing agent, topical or local anesthetic. It has been approved by the FDA to be used for smoothing facial wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
What areas can be treated?
We proudly provide Restylane® for the following: Restylane® lip injections, Restylane® under eyes injections, Restylane® forehead lines injections, Restylane® glabellar lines injections and the usage to straighten nose cartilage or fill in nose deformities. Restylane® is also used to elevate scar depressions, to reduce deep chin dimples, to make up for volume loss in cheeks, to pronounce cheek bones and to decrease the depth of the tea troughs among other indications. When it comes to facial wrinkles, it can be used to enhance the volume of the skin in order to correct the facial folds and wrinkles ranging from the moderate ones to the deeper wrinkles. The major treatment areas include the lines that travel from the nose towards the end points of the mouth referred to as the nasolabial folds. Other areas include the region between the upper lip and the nose, and the area that stretches from the ends of the lips to the jawline. However, most popular treated areas are Restylane® under eye injections, and Restylane® lip injections. Restylane® under eye injections and Restylane® lip injections are proven to show phenomenal results compared to other injectables. Restylane® product range includes Restylane®, Restylane-L, Perlane, and Perlane-L.
How long can Restylane® injections last?
After the initial treatment, follow-up sessions are normally recommended around every 4 to 6 months depending on the individual and the area being treated. The duration of time Restylane® lasts may vary according to the area of injection, the amount injected, patient’s rate of metabolism and the degree of physical activities of the patient in the injection area. The areas that experience the least movement, experience the longest lasting period. For example, in some patients who have Restylane® injected in their tear trough depression, the effect may last for over a year. While the same product would last the least amount when injected in highly mobile areas such as lips. The amount that has been injected also affects the lasting period.
What areas can be treated with Restylane® injections?
- Lower Face (particularly around the mouth/nose)
What can I expect after Restylane® injections?
Generally, the amount of downtime that follows a facial filler injection is very minimal. Restylane® treatments can lead to a few side effects such as slight redness, swelling, pain, tenderness, itching and/or bruising following Restylane® treatment. This is the same as you might expect with any type of injection. However, the discomfort is temporary and generally disappears after a few hours. With lip enhancement, it is wise to choose your treatment time with care since your lips may appear swollen for the next three to seven days. The appointment itself is generally quick. It usually takes less than an hour, and the benefits can be seen immediately!
What is the cost of Restylane® injections?

When you come in for your complimentary consultation, we will assess the areas of concern and our highly trained medical professionals will help you choose what is best for you. It is a highly effective treatment with amazing results that makes the procedure worth its cost.
