What is Restylane?
Restylane is an injectable facial filler typically used to smooth wrinkles and creases. Composed hyaluronic acid, which is naturally produced by the body, Restylane helps to improve facial features and provide a smoother appearance. Common injection areas on the face include the nasolabial folds, the "11" (glabellar) lines between the eyebrows, and the lips. Patients can expect to see immediate results that will leave them with a more youthful appearance. Restylane injections typically garner results that last about 6 months depending on the area being treated. This injection is available for those 21 years or older.
Dr. Matthew Barrows and his team of trained aestheticians and practitioners will offer a thorough skin analysis at one of our area dermatology offices, including Dallas, McKinney, Gainesville, Allen, and Rockwall. During this analysis, a treatment plan will be tailored to meet your aesthetic goals.
Both men and women can attain softer, natural looking results with Restylane. It is safe to use for any skin type and any ethnicity and works best for patients who have experienced a loss of volume around the mouth, under the eyes, and for those who have "cracks" to fill, such as the deep lines that can develop between the eyebrows. Women who desire to have fuller lips are also good candidates for this filler.

Restylane is administered through an easy and quick injection process. Using a thin needle, the gel is injected into the designated areas to smooth wrinkles and folds as well as add volume to the face. A numbing ointment may be rubbed around the injection sites to prevent discomfort during treatment. The duration of the treatment is dependent upon how much filler is being injected and where. Typically, treatment last up to an hour and patients leave looking younger and refreshed.
What to Expect
Following treatment, the effects of Restylane can be seen immediately. Lines that once appeared as deep cracks, will appear smooth and soft. For patients receiving a Restylane injection into the lips, the lips will appear swollen for a couple of days, but then will look natural and beautiful. Immediately following the treatment, there may be some swelling and redness that occurs at the injection sites, however this will go away after a few hours. Patients are advised to follow all aftercare instructions to see the best results and they may return to their regular routines immediately. Results are expected to last 6 to 12 months. After that time, patients may return for additional treatment.
