Restylane is the only non-surgical hyaluronic acid filler that is FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe wrinkles. The dermal filler can be injected to the perioral lips to help augment the lips, into the marionette lines around the mouth, under the eye to help with the hollowing that can appear with aging or into the nasolabilal folds also known as the smile lines.

Restylane is typically injected in the office by a physician and offers immediate natural looking results that can last up to 1 year. Here at Renaissance Plastic Surgery we use a dental block which is a local anesthetic used to numb the area allowing for a much improved comfort during the treatment.

As with any injectable there are a few side effects that usually subside within 14 days time. This may include tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. To help prevent some of the side effects we ask that you refrain from taking any blood thinners at least one week prior to your treatment and we do offer Arnica after the treatment. Arnica is an herbal supplement used to help with bruising and swelling.

If Restylane sounds like something you want to try please don’t hesitate to call our office at 949-548-9312. We would be more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
