About Restylane

Ellsworth Plastic Surgery offers a wide range of filler injections to help correct signs of aging, addressing lost volume, lines, and wrinkles. Restylane is one of the most popular brands of injectable dermal fillers because it treats many concerns with different formulas for results that last. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A personal treatment plan can correct mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the cheeks and lips. Ellsworth Plastic Surgery carries many Restylane injectables, including:

  • Restylane: Corrects facial wrinkles and folds
  • Restylane Defyne: Treats moderate to severe smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
  • Restylane Refyne: Treats light to moderate smile and laugh lines

Ideal Candidates

Restylane dermal fillers are great for any person over the age of 21 who would like to refresh their appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs. Restylane can help you address initial signs of aging, including fine facial lines, or increase the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Certain formulas have the anesthetic lidocaine so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation with our team to avoid a reaction.

Procedure Technique

Restylane treatments take place inside the office at Ellsworth Plastic Surgery and are given by our registered nurse and aesthetic coordinator, Allison Verheul. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if desired. The filler is injected into your skin through a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be followed by a cold, gentle compress to reduce swelling. Each Restylane filler is administered with the same technique but on different targeted areas of the face based on your specific needs and cosmetic goals.

What to Expect

When your Restylane treatment is finished, you can return to normal activities. Your recovery period will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this typically goes away within a day. Bruising can occur, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep upright for at least one night. Most patients will see some improvements immediately after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane treatments typically last around a year, depending on the exact product used.
