About Restylane

Corte Madera, CA dermatologist Tracy Evans provides a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. Restylane is a popular brand of dermal filler injections since it treats multiple issues with specialized formulas and has long-lasting results. It uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid) to give your complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A unique dermal filler plan can address mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines and also add fullness to the lips and mid-face. Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:

  • Restylane: Fills in facial folds and wrinkles
  • Restylane Defyne: Addresses moderate to deep laugh and smile wrinkles
  • Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face and hands
  • Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
  • Restylane Silk: Builds fullness and reduces vertical lines on the lips

Ideal Candidates

Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any woman or man older than 21 years old who are looking to rejuvenate or enhance their overall appearance. Since it offers different formulas, your procedure can be individualized to suit your needs, concerns, and goals. Restylane may help you correct visible signs of age, such as fine lines on your face, or improve the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve moderate or severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several treatments are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Evans to prevent a negative reaction.

Procedure Technique

Restylane dermal injections are performed in a comfortable treatment room at Pacific Skin and Cosmetic Dermatology Corte Madera. Some of Restylane's formulas contain their own local anesthetic, but a numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if preferred. The Restylane is injected in your skin with a very fine needle and then gently massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed, and then we will follow up with a cold compress to decrease any inflammation. Every Restylane formula is injected with a similar technique but on different areas to fit your unique concerns and goals.

What to Expect

Once your Restylane procedure is done, you may resume your day. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what you are having treated so ask Dr. Evans or a member of her team about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may appear, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep with your head propped up for at least the first night. Many patients will experience visible changes right after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injection treatments generally last about one year, depending on the formula selected.
