Reconstructive Procedures

Restylane

Restylane® injectable gel is a cosmetic “filler” that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in all living organisms. Hyaluronic acid binds to water in the tissue, allowing for more volume and elasticity to that area in the body. As we get older, and our body ages, levels of hyaluronic acid within the body decreases. This limits the binding of water ultimately resulting in loose skin and increased wrinkling. Restylane injections can combat this natural aging process with simple and quick treatments. Once our team injects restylane gel, it plumps the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable. 

Restylane is a cosmetic filler containing Hyaluronic Acid, a natural substance found in living organisms. Used to create volume and fullness in the face, this injectable gel is typically designated to treat the lip border, nasolabial folds (lines from the sides of the nose to the corner of the mouth). With little to no downtime, the results are smoother skin and a more youthful appearance, lasting up to 6 months or more.

Cosmetic Goals

Added volume and fullness to the face, diminished fine lines in the lip border, nasolabial folds (lines from the sides of the nose to the corner of the mouth), and glabellar lines (lines between the eyebrows).
