Restylane is a dermal filler used to fill and plum loose, sagging areas of the face. The areas that are most commonly treated include the nasolabial folds (a.k.a marionette lines), the angles of the mouth, the lips, the cheek bones, the cheeks, the temples, eye brows (gives a mini lid lift) and the hollows around the eyes. Dr. Eberting, Dr. Stolman and Carolyn Sironen, NP, are all VERY experienced in filler injections.
What is Restylane made of: Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid; a naturally occuring subtance in our dermal layers of the skin. Hyaluronic acid holds on to water very efficiently allowing any area into which it is injected to look fuller, plump and more youthful.
What are the side effects: Restylane injection can seldom cause bruising (most common around the eyes), small bumps under the skin, are allergy (Dr. Eberting has never seen a case of allergy to it.) Very, very rarely, the body can react to Restylane causing permanant granulomatous bumps under the skin.
What our patients think: Restylane is awesome. We have numerous repeat customers who love our injection techniques which leave your face looking natural, full, and youthful. You will need to get used to people asking you how you look so good.
How is Restylane Different from Perlane and Voluma: Restylane is less viscous and is used in more superficial areas of the skin. We will oftem mix all three fillers to get you the best look possible.
