Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Steve Laverson provides a wide range of dermal filler products to address visible signs of facial aging, such as wrinkles, lines, and lost volume. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable wrinkle fillers since it treats several issues with specialized formulas for long-lasting results. It uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), which works to provide your complexion with a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A custom dermal filler treatment plan can improve the appearance of mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, as well as add fullness to the lips and cheeks. San Diego Cosmetic Clinic carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Addresses facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Fynesse: Fills in lines and wrinkles around the mouth (peri-oral) and eyes (peri-orbital)
Restylane treatments are suitable for any patient older than 21 years who wants to improve their overall appearance, whether by reducing the appearance of facial lines or adding volume to the cheeks. Since this injectable family has a number of effective formulas, your treatment will be customized to accurately suit your needs, concerns, and goals. Restylane can both help treat early signs of aging and boost the fullness in your cheeks, depending on the formula selected. It could also improve moderate to severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Some treatments contain lidocaine so you will need to discuss any allergies you may have during your pre-treatment consultation to prevent a negative reaction from occurring.

"I must start by saying that I very rarely write reviews. But I recently recalled my experience with Dr. Laverson, and felt compelled to leave a long-overdue review that he truly earned. My situation was also quite different from most of his typical work, so I hope this also attests to his wide-ranging surgical skill. A couple of years ago I was involved in a bad motorcycle accident and wound up at Palomar Hospital. According to my family, doctors, and nurses, my face was pretty much smashed to bits and looked extremely gruesome. Some parts of my face were even missing. Anyway, Dr. Laverson was the on-call plastic surgeon that night. Once the E.R. doctors had gotten me stable, he had the impossible task of trying to fix my Freddy Krueger face by looking at an old picture of me on my fiance’s cell phone. Or at least it should’ve been impossible based on how bad my condition was...Fast forward a day or two, after my swelling from the surgery had gone down in order to see the results, my family and some coworkers came in to see. NONE of them could tell a difference from before the accident, including the coworkers who hadn’t seen my smashed face. Somehow, some way, Dr. Laverson was able to use plates, grafts, and whatever other tools and tricks in his brilliant surgical mind to make me look IDENTICAL to how I looked before splattering multiple pieces of my face on the side of a road. Shortly after my family, friends, and coworkers visited, Dr. Laverson himself visited as well to observe the post-swelling results, see how I was feeling, and to follow up on all the medical stuff he knew to look out for. He even asked my family and I if there was anything out of place, or changes we’d like to make, since he was happy to do another surgery to get everything exactly right. Because everything was already perfect I didn’t do another surgery, but his offer, his following up with me, and his sincere concern for my well being was absolutely amazing.There is only one last detail I want to mention, but it speaks volumes for Dr. Laverson’s outstanding character and genuine desire to help people feel beautiful and be happy with their looks. Since this was in the emergency room at the hospital, not only was it different than his usual surgeries by its type and difficulty, but the emergency was also paid for by my medical insurance. In the medical profession, this often means a significant pay-cut for the doctor from what they would normally charge. I don’t know if my surgery wound up being one of those times for Dr. Laverson, but I do know that he did a spectacular job given my horrendous condition, all while cancelling his Friday evening plans, and likely earning less than usual as well. I hope this review helps prove to potential customers that Dr. Laverson is a caring and outstandingly skilled surgeon, and to put anyone’s mind at ease that may be nervous or unsure about plastic surgery. And lastly, Dr. Laverson, I want to personally thank you for everything outlined above. I know there is no way I can ever really reciprocate what you did for me, but I hope this review can at least help show people and spread the word that you are an absolutely amazing person and professional."- D.S. / Google / Jun 11, 2019
"Dr. Laverson is incredibly thorough and passionate about his work. He answered all of my questions prior to my breast augmentation and tummy tuck. Following my procedure, Dr. Laverson went above and beyond during my follow up appointment to ensure I get the best results. Office staff is very welcoming, and they even called to check up on me after my procedure. I feel like a new woman, and I’m more confident than I have ever been. I recommend Feel Beautiful to anyone considering having an aesthetic procedure."- J.C. / Google / Mar 17, 2019

Restylane injections are performed in the minor procedures room at San Diego Cosmetic Clinic. A numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas for greater comfort if requested. The product is injected into the skin with a fine-gauge needle and is then massaged so it reaches the intended areas. Several injections may be administered, followed by a cold compress to help control inflammation. Every variation of the Restylane formulas is injected the same way but in different areas according to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane injectable session is complete, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery will vary, depending on what you are having treated so be sure to ask your injector what you can expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red following treatment, but this usually goes away after a few hours. Bruising may occur, but this can be safely camouflaged with makeup. Dr. Laverson typically advises his patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours. You also should sleep with your head propped up for the first night after your appointment. Many patients will notice visible changes right after their session, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before your final results are fully developed. Restylane injections often last up to one year, depending on the formula selected.
