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.
