Restylane® is a popular dermal filler treatment provided at Keller Plastic Surgery to treat lines and wrinkles in the face. Board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Gregory S. Keller and his team of dedicated professionals provide skin rejuvenation treatments to residents of Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, and nearby communities in Southern California.

How does Restylane® improve the facial appearance?

Restylane® (formerly known as Perlane®) is an FDA-approved formula that uses hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that attracts and retains moisture in skin cells, to help your skin remain hydrated.  As we age, the body naturally produces less hyaluronic acid; therefore, skin loses its natural hydration and collapses into lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds. Restylane® delivers hyaluronic acid directly to thirsty skin cells deep beneath the surface layers of the skin to increase and maintain healthy hydration of skin cells. The continued hydration that Restylane® triggers in skin cells results in a gradual fading of lines, creases, wrinkles, and folds in the treatment area.

What are the key ingredients in Restylane®?

Restylane® gel contains all natural plant-based ingredients that are designed to be biocompatible with the human body, minimizing any risk of allergic reaction or rejection by the body. Over time, the body continues to absorb this hyaluronic acid, and the skin’s texture continues to benefit from it.

What specific conditions does Restylane® treat?

Restylane® is ideal for healthy adults wishing to correct any of the following conditions:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Laugh lines
  • Frown lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Vertical lines around the mouth
  • Sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Sunken cheekbones and loss of definition in the cheeks
  • Loss of fullness, volume, and definition around the lips
  • Sagging skin in the chin and jaw line

How should I prepare for Restylane®?

While there is little risk of any adverse reaction with Restylane®, you must discuss any history of allergies and other medical conditions with Dr. Keller, as well as any other injections you may have received recently and medications you are taking. We advise holding off on getting Restylane® treatments if you have any infections, inflammation, acne, rashes, or other skin irritations until the condition passes.

Are Restylane® injections Painful?

We will apply a numbing agent to the treatment area to prevent any potential discomfort during treatment. The Restylane® gel is delivered using a very fine, small gauge needle. Most patients do not describe the procedure as painful, and you may resume regular activities immediately following treatment.

How long do Restylane® results last?

For most patients, one treatment produces dramatic results that last about a year, and no recovery period is required when Restylane® is administered as a stand-alone treatment.
