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)
"Exilis for Neck Fat Reduction and Lines Restylane Usually Fills - San Diego, CA - It's a nice, comfortable treatment. It gets really hot but not too hot. I have had 4 treatments on my neck, nasal labial fold and lines by my mouth where I usually get Restylane. This procedure is amazing. I noticed a difference with my first treatment but after my forth, there is no need for Restylane anymore. My neck looks great. I stare in the mirror and can't believe the results and my lower face is all tightened up. I dont usually like of trust the results of other laser treatments but this one is awesome!"- T. / RealSelf / Jul 13, 2011
What Are the Benefits of Restylane?
Depending on the exact product chosen, Restylane can offer a number of benefits. In most cases, it is used to eliminate the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in various areas of the face by adding volume to areas that may be a bit thin. These areas can even be in very small, delicate areas, such as near the mouth and/or eyes. In this way, we are able to help patients combat any insecurities they may have about their faces.
who are the Ideal Candidates for restylane?
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.
How do restylane injections work?
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.
how long will recovery from restylane last?
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.
How much does Restylane cost?
Your cost for Restylane injections will vary based on many things, including which product is selected, where it is used, how much filler is needed, and more. During your initial consultation, your injector will need to understand your concerns and goals before developing a personalized injection plan. From there, your cost can be estimated and we can review payment options.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
The Restylane family of dermal fillers are each designed to make you look refreshed but still natural. During your initial consultation, your injector can discuss the various formulas and decide which one matches your goals. Restylane Defyne, Lyft, and Refyne correct mild, moderate, or deep facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane Silk and Lyft add volume to your cheeks, hands, and lips.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
Typically, Restylane treatments can last from 6 – 18 months. Your results will vary based on which formula is selected, where it is injected, and other factors. During your consultation, your injector will develop your Restylane treatment plan, which will include when to schedule appointments for treatments to refresh your appearance.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
There may be some discomfort during the procedure. Prior to your treatment, a numbing cream can be applied to help decrease any discomfort that you may feel during the injections. Following your treatment, we will apply a cold compress to reduce swelling and bruising.
Will I look fake after Restylane?
Restylane injections, when done by a trained practitioner, deliver a gorgeous outcome. The goal is to achieve a result that looks natural and soft. San Diego Cosmetic Clinic is pleased to offer Restylane treatments that can help you look refreshed.
