Frequently Asked Questions for Restylane
Ocean Plastic Surgery Center in Los Alamitos, CA provides a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing wrinkles, lines, and lost volume. Restylane is a popular brand of dermal filler injections because it treats multiple issues with specialized formulas for results that are long-lasting. It uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the complexion with a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. Restylane products utilize an innovative technology that gives each product a unique particle size for tailored treatment. This enables the application of just the right amount of lift to laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) while preserving your full range of natural facial expressions. 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. Ocean Plastic Surgery Center carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane and Restylane-L are used for mid to deep injections into the facial tissue to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. They are also often used for injection into the lips.
- Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine is used for deep injection into the facial tissue to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, for cheek augmentation, and for age-related mid-face contour deficiencies.
- Restylane Silk is used for lip augmentation and to address perioral wrinkles.
- Restylane Refyne and Defyne are used for mid to deep injections into the facial tissue to address moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Procedure Technique for Restylane
Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any man or woman older than 21 years who are looking to rejuvenate their overall appearance. Since Restylane 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 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.
"Positive Experience - This will be my second time having breast augmentation done by Dr. Aiello. I first went to him over 15 years ago and now its time to have them replaced with a modified lift. My first experience was great and I've been very happy my breast augmentation but after three kids and 15+ years later its time for a redo. I wouldn't go to anyone else but Dr. Aiello :)"- J. / RealSelf / Apr 22, 2019

Restylane dermal injections are performed in a treatment room at Ocean Plastic Surgery Center. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected into your skin with a very fine needle and gently massaged so that 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 on different areas to fit your unique concerns and goals.
What to Expect from 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 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.
Ideal Candidates for Restylane
How much does Restylane cost?
Costs for Restylane treatments will be based on several things, including which product is selected, where it is used, the amount of filler used, and more. In your initial consultation, your injector will need to understand your areas of concerns before creating a custom injection plan. After this, costs can be estimated, and we can review payment options.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
The Restylane family of dermal fillers are each formulated to help you appear renewed but natural. In your initial consultation, your injector will talk about the various formulas of Restylane and decide which fits your needs. Restylane Lyft, Defyne, and Refyne improve mild, moderate, or deep lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane Lyft and Silk increase volume in your cheeks, lips, and hands.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
Usually, Restylane results last from 6 – 18 months. Your results will vary based on which formula is selected, the injection sites, and other factors. In your initial consultation, your injector will make your Restylane treatment plan, including when to make your next appointment to refresh your appearance.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
There may be some discomfort as the fine needle is inserted under your skin. Before your injection, a local anesthetic can be applied to help you feel more comfortable. Following your injections, we will apply a cold compress to minimize bruising and swelling.
Will I look fake after Restylane?
Restylane injections, when done by a skilled practitioner, deliver a gorgeous outcome. The unique Restylane formula helps results look natural and soft. Ocean Plastic Surgery Center is pleased to offer Restylane injections that will help you appear rejuvenated and refreshed.
