What is Restylane?

At DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa in Boston, MA, we provide a wide range of filler products to help reduce signs of facial aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable dermal fillers because it treats several issues with specialized formulas, and it has long-lasting results. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), providing the complexion a softer, natural look that is fuller and more supple. A unique treatment plan can treat mild, moderate, or severe facial lines and wrinkles, and also add volume to the lips and cheeks. DeRosa Center Facial Plastic Surgery & Med Spa carries many Restylane dermal fillers, including:

  • Restylane-L®: corrects facial wrinkles and folds
  • Restylane Defyne®: treats moderate to deep smile and laugh wrinkles
  • Restylane Lyft®: creates lift and volume in the cheeks
  • Restylane Refyne®: treats moderate laugh and smile lines
  • Restylane Silk®: volumizes your lips for a naturally plump look

What are the benefits?

As we age, skin can begin to seem dry, lifeless, and one-dimensional. With Restylane filler at DeRosa Center Facial Aesthetics, you can refresh the skin's layers to glean multiple benefits from many different treatment options, some of which include:

  • Organic components, including hyaluronic acid, which the body produces
  • Smoothed and rejuvenated skin texture
  • Variety of treatment options, such as hands, decolletage, and face
  • Build your confidence from within

Who is a Candidate for RESTYLANE?

For patients over the age of 21, Restylane dermal fillers can help them enhance their appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment is personalized to meet your needs. Restylane may help you address early signs of aging, such as fine lines throughout the face, or boost the fullness in your lips and cheeks. It can also improve moderate to severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several treatments have lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so please discuss any known allergies during your consultation to avoid a reaction.

What to Expect During RESTYLANE

We perform Restylane treatments in one of our treatment rooms. If needed, we can apply a numbing cream for increased comfort if desired. The product is injected in your skin with a very fine needle and massaged so it fills the selected areas. You may need several injections, which is then followed by a cold compress to reduce swelling. Every Restylane product is injected the same way but on different areas of the face. We place the injections based on the cosmetic goals we discussed during your consultation. 

How Long is Recovery After RESTYLANE?

Once your Restylane procedure is complete, you can return to work. Your recovery is based on the treatment area so we will talk to you about what to expect. Following the treatment, your skin will appear slightly swollen and red, but this typically goes away within a day. Bruising is also a factor, but patients can usually camouflage it with makeup. For at least 1 – 2 days, we suggest avoiding strenuous activities, like exercise, and sleeping with your head propped up. Many patients will notice visible results immediately after the procedure; however, it may take 1 – 2 weeks until the final results appear. Restylane injections generally last up to one year, depending on the selected formula.
