About Restylane Injections
Our seasoned, board-certified plastic surgeons at Austin-Weston perform a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, such as lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. It is a popular brand of dermal filler injections since it treats multiple issues with specialized formulas for results that are long lasting. Restylane uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the 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. Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane: Fills in facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Builds fullness in the lips and smoothes vertical lines on the lips
Restylane Ideal Candidates
Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any woman or man older than 21 years old who is looking to rejuvenate their overall appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you correct visible signs of age, such as fine lines on your face, or if you would like to 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 to prevent a negative reaction.

Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane dermal injections are performed in the treatment room at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery. While some Restylane treatments are pre-mixed with the local anesthetic lidocaine, a numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected in your skin with a very fine needle and gently massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to decrease inflammation. Every Restylane formula is injected with a similar technique but with different areas treated to fit your unique concerns and goals.
What to Expect with Restylane
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 your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this often resolves on its own 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 the 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 based on the formula selected.
