Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who is looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs and goals. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more.

"I went for a small refresher for my face. I was offered a band aid face lift and fillers. This procedure was performed in her office's procedure room under local anesthesia. I was awake and talking to Dr. Lawrence the whole time and did not feel a thing. The end result is amazing. The doctor and staff at this practice are all friendly, knowledgeable, and care greatly. I could not be more pleased. Thank you"- H.M. / Yelp / Aug 06, 2019

Restylane dermal injections take place inside the treatment room at one of our facilities. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to decrease swelling. Each Restylane formula is administered with a similar technique but on different areas of the face targeted to fit your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect
When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep upright for at least the first night. Most patients will experience some improvements immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year, depending on the exact product used.
