Restylane is one of the most popular wrinkle fillers worldwide for treating smile lines, marionette lines and thin lips. And now, Restylane is FDA-approved for hand rejuvenation!
With a simple injection, we restore volume to sunken areas of tissue, effectively filling in wrinkles and helping you look younger. Restylane is made with non-animal, stabilized hyaluronic acid gel (HA), which is formulated to act like the naturally-occurring HA inside your skin.
Quick Correction of Lines, Wrinkles and Folds
When we are young, our skin is nourished and supported by a healthy supply of collagen and hyaluronic acid. Collagen provides valuable support, while the water-retentive hyaluronic acid moisturizes the elastins and other components within the skin. As we age, unfortunately, our metabolism slows and eventually stops producing new collagen and HA. Our skin becomes both less supported and hydrated, and wrinkles, lines, and sagging skin develop.
Made with non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid, Restylane can plump the skin for an immediate wrinkle correction. The hyaluronic acid is accepted by the body because it is already naturally occurring in our bodies. Restylane is a safe, effective means of subtly filling in the lines, wrinkles, and folds that develop almost anywhere on our bodies as we age. Depending on the number of locations that you would like treated with Restylane, you can complete your session in as little as 15 minutes, or within the span of an hour. The results are visible immediately and look natural because the Restylane mimics your own healthy skin anatomy and function.

Types of Restylane
Restylane offers different formulations of their hyaluronic acid fillers in order to achieve the best results possible in a specific treatment area.
Restylane is designed to add volume to areas which are experiencing major facial wrinkles. These areas include the brow, mouth, nose, or chin.
This formulation of Restylane is injected deeper into the facial tissue, and is effective for adding volume in order to fill moderate to severe wrinkles, augment the cheeks, or restore volume to the backs of the hands.
Ideal for injection into mid-to-deep facial tissue, Restylane Refyne is a good means of addressing modern and severe wrinkles.
This Restylane formula is designed to fill nasolabial folds and severe facial wrinkles. The unique formula adds volume and smooths the area, without inhibiting your ability to smile or use your mouth normally.
Restylane Silk is specifically formulated to add natural but noticeable volume to the lips, as well as to smooth the fine lines that form around the mouth with time.
Restylane for Hand Rejuvenation
The backs of the hands may show the first signs of aging. The volume of natural fat and collagen in the back of our hands decreases with time, which can lead to the tendons, veins, and bones in the area becoming more visibly prominent.
Restylane Lyft is now an FDA-approved approved method of restoring natural, youthful fullness to the backs of your hands!
If you would like to achieve healthier volume in the backs of your hands, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine are now available if you are over 21. Patients will receive between one and three mL of Restylane Lyft in their hands. The procedure is comfortable and can usually be completed within thirty minutes. After you receive the Restylane Lyft, you will be asked to ball your hand. Your hand will be massaged, in order to make sure the filler is distributed evenly. An ice pack will then be applied, in order to reduce any swelling or discomfort in the area.
Swelling will subside in a few days. Try to minimize how often you use your hands during this period. After this time, your hands will look full and smooth, as they did when you were younger. You will be able to use your hands comfortably, and to show off your more voluminous, healthier-looking skin! Results will last up to six months.
There is no downtime after treatment with Restylane. You should be able to return to your routine right away. The treatment sites may be sensitive and minor swelling may occur. Be sure to avoid immediate sun exposure and apply ice as directed.
The results are instantly visible and can last for up to six months. With maintenance treatments, you can achieve long-lasting results from Restylane. In many cases, we can combine Restylane with another injectable (such as Dysport) for an optimal outcome.
Restylane will fill in the fine lines and wrinkles that are creating an aged appearance in your skin. This includes the wrinkles that commonly form along the nose and mouth, known as nasolabial folds or the lines that form from the mouth to the chin, also known as marionette lines. Restylane will also fill and smooth brow lines or a sunken under-eye appearance. Patients who receive Restylane in their cheeks or lips will see a more pronounced, natural but full curve in their augmented feature.
Due to the fact that your body is accustomed to the hydrating benefits of hyaluronic acid, your skin not only accepts the results achieved by the Restylane, it also looks and is healthier after a Restylane treatment.
The results of a round of Restylane injections will last for up to six months but can be maintained for up to eighteen months. After this point, patients may need to receive a new, complete treatment of Restylane to achieve their results.
The price of your Restylane treatment will depend on the area or areas that you would like treated, the number of Restylane vials required to achieve your desired results, and the number of Restylane treatments you plan to receive.
