How Restylane Injections/Filler work
Restylane (Restylane filler family) are natural, non-animal based, products made of hyaluronic acid. Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft are the new types of Restylane with different hyaluronic acid properties.
Our skin naturally produces hyaluronic acid, but as we age, we produce less of this molecule. Hyaluronic acid can hold up to 100 times its volume in water, and as such is a great natural volumizer in the skin. Given this capacity to hydrate the skin, swelling after Restylane can be seen immediately after injection. To reduce swelling after Restylane we recommend using Arnica and we will provide with your ice packs. The swelling after Restylane is comparable with other dermal fillers.
Injections of Restylane filler, therefore, replace this volume loss and restore a natural facial contour. Restylane can be used to correct loss of volume in various areas of the face, including the hollow around the eyes, the aging nasolabial folds, as well as the lips. Restylane filler is a great and powerful choice in facial contouring, as well as non-surgical facelifts (Liquid Facelift).
Because Restylane is soft and easy to shape, it can fill the most delicate lines or folds. The contours Restylane filler creates are not lumpy and bumpy; Restylane filler offers very gentle and soft correction. Deeper folds can be treated easily with Restylane Lyft, also a form of Restylane filler.
Usually, Restylane filler lasts about 6 months in the skin after injection. And because it is a natural product, we have enzymes that break it down over time. The more product placed the more swelling after Restylane treatment is noted. The right amount of Restylane filler makes the face look natural and reduce swelling after Restylane, as with all fillers.

What our patients are saying:
I had rosacea that caused redness and broken vessels on my face. Dr. Kormeili addressed all of my concerns and set about fixing the redness. I was super excited after my first laser treatment as the improvement was immediately noticeable. The second laser treatment made me look and feel amazing…
I had really bad psoriasis on my scalp that flaked all over my clothes, and it was so embarrassing to sit on board meetings in a black suite with white flakes. My entire attention was on my flakes, and worried what people were thinking when they looked at me, or got close to me at work…
Dr. Kormeili is the BEST!! I have a horrible phobia of needles and she calmed my nerves and had an extremely gentle touch. Painless office visit!
