What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a family of dermal fillers used to diminish the appearance of wrinkles and restore facial fullness and volume. Treatment is also effective for adding volume and fullness to the lips, contour the face, restore fullness to sunken or sagging cheeks, and rejuvenate aging hands.
How Does It Work?
Restylane® contains a form of hyaluronic acid that is designed to work with the hyaluronic acid produced by the body. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar present in the skin that provides fullness, hydration, and elasticity. Due to the natural aging process, the production of key substances in the skin – hyaluronic acid, collagen, and elastin – decreases over time. This causes fine lines, wrinkles, and creases as the skin loses its elasticity and volume.
Restylane® works by binding to water molecules in the skin’s tissues. This provides volume, smooths wrinkles, and lifts sagging skin, helping it look plumper.

What Are the Types of Restylane®?
We offer a variety of Restylane® dermal filler options at Premier Dermatology. During your consultation, your dermatologist will help you determine which option is right for you. Explore these Restylane® treatment options:
Restylane® is the original dermal filler that adds fullness and volume to lips and softens facial wrinkles and folds. Your Restylane results can last up to one year.

Restylane® Contour is designed for cheek augmentation and contouring. Treatment allows for precise sculpting, restores natural facial contours, and can increase fullness to the cheek area. Results can last up to one year.
What Happens During Restylane® Treatment?
To keep you comfortable during your treatment session, your Premier dermatologist may apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area. Many Restylane® dermal filler options contain lidocaine, so you can expect minimal discomfort. After cleaning the treatment area, your provider injects Restylane® into the skin using an ultrafine needle.
Since Restylane® is gel-based, your provider will gently massage the treatment area. This helps evenly distribute the filler and ensures a natural appearance. A typical treatment session takes less than one hour, and since there isn’t any downtime, you can go about your normal activities after your treatment session.
What Are the Side Effects?
Restylane® is a safe and effective cosmetic treatment when performed by one of our experienced dermatologists. Common Restylane® side effects include tenderness, swelling, redness, itching, and bruising at the injection site. These effects are usually mild and subside after one to two weeks.
What Are My Expected Results?
You’ll notice results immediately after your treatment session. Since Restylane® is a dermal filler, it adds volume to the skin as soon as it’s injected. Fine lines and wrinkles are softened and smoothed, thinning lips appear full and plump, and volume is restored to sagging cheeks.
You’ll enjoy full results after any swelling or bruising subsides, which usually takes about one to two weeks. Depending on the type of Restylane® you receive, your results will last between six and eighteen months. To maintain your results, you’ll need to schedule follow-up treatments.
