Restylane is a family of injectable fillers that work to counteract the effects of aging, as well as add volume to the face. This hyaluronic acid (HA) filler is approved by the FDA and administered by Houston double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Anthony E. Brissett. Containing HA, the substance is safely and effectively absorbed into the skin since it’s naturally found in the body. It aids in hydration and adding volume to smooth out and plump up various areas of the face. With its unique formula, Restylane spreads out beyond the injection site to treat wrinkles that are close together between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). It’s also used for lip augmentation.

What to Expect
Restylane is administered as an in-office procedure and shouldn’t require additional numbing since a numbing agent is already mixed in. The doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and mark the appropriate injection site(s). Restylane will be administered with a fine needle to fill in the lips or the folds between the nose and mouth. The treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes to complete. There will be no downtime after an injection.
After a treatment, patients may experience a tingling sensation and redness. Effects are immediate and can be quite long-lasting. For lip augmentation, the results can last for around 6 months. When used to treat lines, wrinkles, and folds, Restylane can last up to 1 year.
How much does Restylane cost?
Your cost for Restylane treatments will vary based on several things, like which product is selected, where it is used, the amount of filler used, and more. During your Restylane consultation, your injector will listen to your areas of concern before creating a personalized treatment plan. After this, your cost can be estimated, and we can review payment options.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
The Restylane family of dermal fillers are each designed to help you appear rejuvenated but natural. During your consultation, your injector will discuss the various Restylane formulas and which fits your needs. Restylane Lyft, Defyne, and Refyne improve mild to deep facial folds and wrinkles. Restylane Silk and Lyft add volume to the hands, lips, and cheeks.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
Typically, Restylane injections last between 6 – 18 months. This will vary based on which Restylane formula is selected, the injection sites, and other factors. During your initial consultation, your injector will develop your Restylane treatment plan, including how often you should make your next appointment to maintain your results.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
There may be mild discomfort when receiving an injection using a filler product. Prior to your treatment, a numbing cream can be applied to help minimize your discomfort. After your injections, we will apply a cold compress to minimize swelling and bruising.
