Age shows itself in mixed and interconnected ways. Whether due to environment, genetics, or our own facial expressions, age becomes more apparent with time, etching itself into our beautiful skin. We’ve seen and experienced it as you have. Lost volume in your cheeks plus your natural tendency to smile culminates in nasolabial folds, or “laugh lines”. Or perhaps years of study and concentration plus your inclination to purse your lips when focused leads to perioral rhytids, vertical wrinkles along the lip line. Whatever the cause, you want help addressing the effect. We have the knowledge, expertise, and tools, such as our line of Restylane fillers, to help you be lovely.

Restylane Treatment Areas
Much like an artist uses a variety of brushes to create a work of art, you will likely need a combination of fillers to achieve your desired look. This is why the Restylane collection of dermal fillers offers a wide range of benefits, providing natural-looking facial rejuvenation.Our Aesthetic Injection Specialists can recommend a treatment plan and composition of products best suited to reach your goals.
Lip Plumping, Smoothing, and Symmetry
If nature didn’t provide you the lips you desire, Restylane-L and Restylane Silk may be the solution. They can add fullness without dominating your other lovely features, and smooth away vertical wrinkles along your lip line, known as perioral rhytids, caused by pursed lips.
These popular fillers also shape lips for balance and definition. When applied to one side, these injectables can provide symmetry. They can also add definition to your cupid’s bow, the dual peaks in the center of the upper lip.
Cheek Enhancement & Lower Facelift
Hyaluronic acid, used to hydrate and retain volume and elasticity, diminishes as you age. This manifests as a sunken or hollow look to your cheeks. Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne can give your cheeks noticeable lift, especially when used in sequence. Treating the cheeks also lifts the skin of the lower face which reduces sag and decreases folds and wrinkles.
Volume Loss, Wrinkles, & Folds
Mid-face volume loss occurs naturally as you age, partly due to the decline of elasticity in your skin. Hyaluronic acid break down results in sagging skin and deeper wrinkles and folds. These include nasolabial folds (dubbed “smile lines” or “laugh lines”), marionette lines, and downturned lips referred to as “wrinkles of sadness”. These effects are further compounded by normal facial expressions. Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, or a combination of, are suitable for addressing these concerns.
Adding volume to the cheeks lifts the skin away from wrinkles and folds as it replenishes lost hyaluronic acid, the main component of Restylane fillers. Used in conjunction with injections directly at the sites, wrinkles and folds can be greatly diminished, taking years off your face.

Your Filler Consultation
During your consultation, your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs and goals. After reviewing your medical history and conducting an examination, your specialist will gladly address your concerns, offer recommendations, inform you of the process, and provide safety and care instructions for before and after. We want to provide you with all the information we have so you can make the best choice for you.
Your Filler Treatment
Our practice is designed with your comfort in mind, so you may relax as we provide care. Your Aesthetic Injection Specialist will gently cleanse the treatment area before applying ice for numbing. Most Restylane fillers also contain 0.3% lidocaine intended to maximize comfort. The filler is injected using ultra-fine needles which grant your specialist superior control and precision. Many patients describe the sensation as feeling like mild pinching.
Downtime, Results, and Follow-Up Treatments
Clients delight in the fact there is little to no downtime with these noninvasive procedures. Many return to their daily activities immediately after treatment. Results vary so while many notice immediate improvement after their procedures, full results are typically seen after two weeks.
Restylane fillers provide temporary results, as with all injectable products, and have varied longevity depending on product and treatment area. You will need follow-up appointments to maintain your results.
While we prefer to answer your concerns during your consultation, we acknowledge there are several commonly asked questions.
Are Restylane fillers safe and FDA-approved?
Each product we use in the Restylane line is FDA-approved. Since they are composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the human body, it is largely considered safe for most adults 21 and over.
Who can get Restylane fillers? Who should not get filler injections?
Adults, 21 years of age or older, in good overall health wishing to address age-related issues, or seeking a noninvasive means of enhancement are good candidates to receive Restylane fillers. If you experienced a reaction to similar products in the past, or take blood thinners, you should not receive these injectables. If you are uncertain, meet with one of our Aesthetic Injection Specialists who can determine if Restylane or similar injectable fillers, like Juvederm, are right for you..
