What is Restylane?

Restylane is an anti-aging injectable made with hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring compound that binds with water molecules to hydrate, plump, and revitalize the skin from within. As we age, our supply of HA slowly dwindles, causing a loss of elasticity and volume in the complexion. Restylane can beautifully replenish areas that have succumbed to hollowness, wrinkling, and sagging.

Restylane can address:

  • Nasolabial folds 
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Loss of volume
  • Hollow-looking contours
  • Lines, creases, and wrinkles
  • Deflated lips

What are the different Restylane formulations?

Restylane products are engineered to treat different areas of the face, such as the cheeks, jawline, or lips, with varying particle sizes and thicknesses. Formulations include:

Restylane Kysse

Kysse uses Galderma’s proprietary XpresHAn technology to cross-link HA molecules, allowing results to appear natural and effortless even when the face is in motion. Kysse is used to plump the lips and create a more alluring, inviting smile.

Restylane Silk

This filler is used to reduce fine lines around the mouth and is also used to augment depleted lips. Additionally, it can help restore a youthful appearance under the eyes. Like other Restylane products, Silk is made with biocompatible hyaluronic acid that provides a hydrating and plumping effect.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is uniquely engineered to combat volume loss in the midface. It can restore rounded, elegant contours while working to erase nasolabial folds. The overall effect is a subtle cheek lift.

Restylane Refyne

Restylane Refyne uses cutting-edge XpresHAn technology to provide superior anti-aging results that appear natural whether the face is at rest or in motion. The filler has the flexibility to shift with your daily facial expressions.

Restylane Defyne

Defyne offers XpresHan technology just like Refyne but is formulated to treat more entrenched nasolabial folds and fill in deeper depressions. Its cross-linked composition provides enhanced flexibility and versatility.

Who is a good candidate for Restylane injections?

Patients over 21 years of age who desire non-surgical facial rejuvenation are excellent candidates for Restylane in Houston, provided they are mentally and physically healthy, and they have realistic expectations for their results. Pregnant or nursing women, immunocompromised individuals, or those with allergies to any ingredients in Restylane are not good candidates at this time.

What will my recovery entail?

Restylane is non-surgical and non-invasive, so there is no downtime. Once the treatment is complete, patients can immediately return to their normal routines. Side effects are minimal and may include minor swelling, bruising, and tenderness at the injection sites. These symptoms typically fade by the end of the day. It’s important that patients avoid strenuous activities and consuming alcohol for the first 24 hours.

What kind of results can I expect?

Most patients can expect to see changes in skin volume and a reduction in wrinkles and folds right away after their session. Full results will be evident within 2 weeks. Restylane outcomes typically last 6-12 months.

Are there any side effects with Restylane?

Because Restylane uses naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid as its main ingredient, injections are well-tolerated by most patients. The most common side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, soreness, tenderness, and itching. Less common side effects may include hyperpigmentation, scabbing at the injection site, infection, and hardness in the treatment areas.

Restylane FAQs

Who will administer my injections?

Our physicians always deliver their own injectables. They believe that it is very important for them to do the injectables because it needs to be done with precision, and they have detailed knowledge of the anatomy of each area they are injecting.

What is hyaluronic acid?

HA is a compound found naturally in youthful skin that is responsible for suppleness, hydration, and resilience. It binds with water molecules to produce plump, rounded contours. When injected, Restylane can compensate for the body’s decline in hyaluronic acid due to the aging process.

Will my results look natural?

Yes. When administered by our highly experienced, seasoned practitioners, Restylane injections produce organic-looking changes without sacrificing facial spontaneity or individuality.

Is Restylane painful?

Many patients report that their injections feel like a slight sting for a few seconds. However, most Restylane products have built-in lidocaine that helps ease discomfort

Are my results reversible?

Fillers made with hyaluronic acid can be reversed using hyaluronidase, an enzyme that dissolves HA particles.

How long do results last?

Results with Restylane can last 6-12 months, depending on the formulation.

How much does Restylane cost?

Pricing varies depending on the areas treated and the number of injections needed. We will provide a personalized quote at the time of your private consultation.
