About Restylane

Riversong Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of filler treatments to help correct aging in the face and address loss of volume. It is one of the most popular brands of dermal filler injections because it treats multiple concerns with different formulas for results that are long-lasting. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a fuller, natural, softer look that is more supple. A unique treatment plan can address mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and mid-face. RiverSong Plastic Surgery carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:

  • Restylane: Fills in fine lines and folds
  • Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate smile and laugh lines

Ideal Candidates

Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who are looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs and concerns. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Several formulas are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation, to avoid a reaction.

Procedure Technique

Restylane dermal injections take place in the treatment room at RiverSong Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to decrease swelling. Each Restylane formula is administered with a similar technique but on different areas of the face targeted to fit your specific needs and goals.

What to Expect

When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what areas are being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 24 hours and sleep upright with your head propped up on pillows, for at least the first night. Most patients will notice improvement immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear.  Restylane injection treatments generally last one year, depending on the exact product used.
