About Restylane

Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery in Scottsdale, AZ offers a wide range of filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing lines, wrinkles, and lost volume.

Restylane is one of the most popular brands of dermal filler injections because it treats multiple concerns with different formulas for results that are long-lasting. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A unique treatment plan can address mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and mid-face. We carry several Restylane dermal fillers, including:

  • Restylane: Fills in facial wrinkles and folds
  • Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
  • Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Silk: Builds volume in the lips and smoothes vertical lip lines

Ideal Candidates

Restylane injectable treatments are great for any man or woman over the age of 21 who are looking to rejuvenate his or her appearance. Since Restylane has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate to severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Several formulas are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation to avoid a reaction.

Before & After

Procedure Technique

Restylane dermal injections take place inside one of the treatment rooms at Starkman Facial Plastic & Laser Surgery. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and then gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to decrease swelling. Each Restylane formula is administered with a similar technique to different areas of the face to target your specific needs and goals.

What To Expect

When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to Dr. Starkman about what to expect.

The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep upright for at least the first night. Most patients will experience some improvements immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year, depending on the exact product used.
