Restylane is a line of injectable hyaluronic acid dermal fillers that includes several varieties targeted to skin concerns on different areas of the face. Each Restylane product has been chemically engineered to fulfill a specific purpose, which ensures the best possible results.
Restylane is formulated to act like the hyaluronic acid that your body produces, and can help stimulate increased collagen production over time.
If you think Restylane might be right for you, our medical team will evaluate your concerns and the goals you have for the treatment area at a free consultation to confirm that you’re a good candidate for the service. We’ll also address other skin concerns with synergistic treatments that can improve your overall appearance.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS*
How long will Restylane treatment take?
Treatment with fillers like Restylane doesn’t take long. Many patients can be in and out of the office in an hour, and the procedure itself may take only about 20-30 minutes, depending on your specific regimen.
Will treatment with Restylane hurt?
This depends on the Restylane formula. Most Restylane formulas include Lidocaine, which will help keep you numb and minimize discomfort during and after injection. There will always be some discomfort associated with an injection, whether you’re treated with a formula that includes Lidocaine or not. We apply a topical numbing agent to the area 30 minutes prior to treatment to help alleviate any discomfort.
How long will it take to see results from treatment with Restylane?
Results are usually seen instantly, though injection site swelling and irritation immediately after treatment may conceal results for up to 2 weeks for some people. Our medical team will give you guidance on post-treatment care.
How many Restylane treatments do I need?
Restylane treatment is not permanent. When the effects of treatment wear off, you may choose to come in for another round. Most people space these out by about 6 months. Based on your results, we’ll give you guidance on how often you should undergo treatment to maintain a youthful look.
How long will treatment with Restylane last?
Restylane treatment is temporary but does last for multiple months, depending on which formula you’re treated with. Most will start to notice that their results are fading around the 4-6 month mark. Some Restylane treatments last longer, even over a year. Ask your provider how long you can expect to see your results.
What other treatments may I need to enhance my Restylane results?
Restylane is a filler, so it will add volume and minimize wrinkles where it’s used, depending on the Restylane product in question. If you’re dealing with skin texture issues, a chemical peel or custom facial can address your needs. If you’re noticing that your deepest lines are related to your expressions, especially on the forehead, Botox or Dysport might be an additional treatment to consider to relax the muscles that cause those lines to crop up.
