Overview

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid (HA) injectable wrinkle filler approved by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to treat mild to moderate facial lines and wrinkles. The synthetic HA in Restylane works with the body's natural HA to hydrate the skin and increase skin elasticity. The results of Restylane last for up to 1 year and patients see more volume and lift in their face after treatments. Since Restylane does not spread, Dr. Dana Khuthaila, a plastic surgeon in Manhattan, often uses Restylane treatments for precision work in areas like the lips and tear troughs.

Administering Restylane

During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the comfort of local anesthesia, the Restylane filler will be injected into the skin using a fine needle where added volume is desired. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.

What to Expect

The results following a Restylane injection will be seen immediately and can last up to a full year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide. 

Alternative Fillers

While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.

Restylane FAQs

Best Filler for Lips?

Restylane is one the more popular derma fillers used to add volume to the lips. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to 6 months.

Best Place for Restylane?

A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward.  

How Often Do I Treat Myself?

Most results will last a full year, however some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have another injection at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
