Beautiful, Natural Facial Contouring with Restylane® in West Palm Beach, FL

Restylane®, a series of hyaluronic acid facial fillers recognized as safe and effective by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, mitigates the natural aging process by smoothing facial wrinkles and frown lines, firming facial contours, and adding volume to lips and cheeks. This FDA-approved treatment provides naturally beautiful, long-lasting results.

Under the guidance of Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Fredric M. Barr, M.D., F.A.C.S., Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery customizes Restylane® applications to address the unique concerns and goals of each patient.

Key Takeaways About Restylane

  • Versatile Usage — Restylane® addresses various facial concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, volume loss, acne scars, and lip augmentation. The flexibility in application of this dermal filler makes it a popular choice for achieving natural-looking results.
  • Longevity and Safety — Renowned for its longevity, Restylane® provides results that can last for several months to over a year, depending on the specific product. Additionally, Restylane has been FDA-approved, indicating its safety and efficacy in cosmetic procedures.
  • Natural Results — One of the hallmark features of Restylane® is its ability to deliver natural-looking results. The hyaluronic acid-based formula in this dermal filler integrates seamlessly into the skin to enhance facial contours while maintaining a soft and natural appearance.

Benefits of Restylane®

Restylane treatments offer numerous benefits, including:

  • Natural Effects — Restylane® dermal fillers act exactly like the hyaluronic acid the body produces naturally. The line’s unique formula allows it to achieve maximum effectiveness in restoring skin volume, smoothness, and elasticity.
  • Advanced Technology — The NASHA technology Restylane® uses results in a diverse, flexible line of products, each one with a different particle size for individually customized treatments. Finer particles target tiny wrinkles and allow high-definition shaping. Medium-sized particles act on moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles, folds, and laugh lines, and larger particles work on severe, multiple wrinkles and lines.
  • Focused Product Line — Different Restylane® products use patented formulations that give each product unique properties and make it a perfect fit for a specific area: the face, lips, or hands.
  • Minimizing Fine Lines and Wrinkles — Restylane® reduces the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, applying hyaluronic acid dermal filler technology in different ways through each product to achieve targeted results.
  • Increasing Volume Around the Eyes — Restylane® can be used to change your appearance from fatigued to well-rested by addressing signs of aging around your eyes that can also be perceived as indications of tiredness.
  • Immediate Results — Restylane® injections provide instant results, allowing you to see a noticeable improvement in facial contours and volume immediately after treatment.
  • Long-Lasting Effects — Enjoy long-lasting effects with Restylane®, as the hyaluronic acid-based filler can maintain results for several months to over a year, depending on the specific product.
  • Customizable Treatments — Restylane® treatments are highly customizable, enabling healthcare professionals to tailor the injections to address specific concerns and achieve personalized results for each individual.
  • Non-Invasive Procedure — As a non-invasive procedure, Restylane® injections require minimal downtime, allowing you to return to your daily activities promptly without significant interruption.

How Restylane® Works: The Power of Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural compound widely present in different areas of the body, including the neural system, connective tissues, and skin. It helps bind water to collagen, thus preserving skin moisture.

Unfortunately, hyaluronic acid production in the body slows down as we age. Together with the dwindling of collagen and elastin, this results in loss of moisture and volume, ultimately leading to the typical signs of aging: wrinkles, skin sagging, and loss of contour.

Restylane® injections treat wrinkles and sagging by giving the skin a hyaluronic acid boost and restoring moisture, firmness, and volume to strategic areas.

How Restylane® Compares to Other Injection Treatments

Many patients wonder how Restylane® performs compared to other injectable treatments like BOTOX® and JUVÉDERM®. It is essential to know how each treatment works to understand the difference between these products and their expected outcome.
Restylane® vs. BOTOX®
While Restylane® is an HA-based dermal filler, BOTOX® injections use a botulinum toxin to treat skin wrinkles. Both procedures are effective and usually involve quick recovery and minimal disruption of the patient’s everyday activities.
However, while BOTOX® mainly works on reducing facial wrinkles, Restylane® improves face and lip contouring. Restylane® also usually provides a longer-lasting effect, as compared to Botox.
Restylane® vs. JUVEDÉRM®
Both Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® are HA-based dermal fillers. Both types of injections give comparable appearance improvement, but Restylane® treatments work particularly well on facial folds and marionette lines near the cheeks and nose.

Types of Restylane® Treatment Products

The Restylane® brand includes several products, all formulations of dermal filler injections based on hyaluronic acid. However, each product targets a different treatment area. The Restylane® line includes:

  • Restylane® Silk: Restylane® Silk focuses on cheek augmentation and midface contour deficiencies. It utilizes hyaluronic acid to increase lip volume, enhance the contours of lips, and reduce small lines or wrinkles around the mouth. Featuring smaller hyaluronic acid particles than other Restylane® products, Silk is used for a more precision-oriented approach to lip augmentation while reducing perioral wrinkles and helping lips to retain moisture.
  • Restylane® Lyft: The formulation of Restylane® Lyft adds more volume to the cheeks and hands.
  • Restylane® Refyne: Smooths out fine lines and wrinkles in the face and chin area by reintroducing hyaluronic acid with patented XpresHAn™ technology. Restylane® Refyne addresses subtle imperfections that become more pronounced over time, such as laugh lines or marionette lines. This product enhances a supple, youthful appearance.
  • Restylane® Defyne: Targets the lower face for enhanced chin projection and firmer facial contours by applying hyaluronic acid cross-linked with the molecular compound BDDE for a prolonged effect. Restylane® Defyne replaces lost facial volume and reduces folds that increasingly show as we age. It also achieves a mild numbing effect at the time of injection by including a small amount of lidocaine.
  • Restylane® Kysse: Provides up to 12 months of increased lip volume and color while enhancing texture and reducing upper lip wrinkles. It uses the patented and unique XpresHAn Technology™ to allow patients to retain full and natural lip flexibility while incorporating BDDE for longer-lasting effects. Kysse adds shape and volume to lips.
  • Restylane® Contour: A new product specifically formulated for correcting mid-face contour imperfections and cheek augmentation.

The optimal Restylane® treatment depends on the designated treatment areas and patient goals. It’s best to schedule a consultation with our office for guidance on the best treatment to achieve your desired results.

Is Restylane® Safe?

Restylane® is FDA-approved for patients over 21. Over the past two decades, patients worldwide — and across Palm Beach County — have enhanced their facial appearance with over 15 million Restylane® procedures.

This type of hyaluronic acid filler is generally considered very safe when administered by an expert injector. Side effects are usually minor and temporary, and may include pain, swelling, bruising, topical itching, and headache — and should dissipate within 2-3 days. However, Restylane® isn’t a good fit for some patients, including:

  • Pregnant or breastfeeding women
  • Immunocompromised patients
  • People with bacterial protein allergies
  • People who take blood thinners
  • People under 21

Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane®?

Good candidates for Restylane® are seeking to address mild to moderate facial wrinkles, lines, and folds. Restylane® is suitable for anyone desiring to:

  • Reduce nasolabial folds (smile lines)
  • Enhance lip volume
  • Improve the appearance of marionette lines
  • Fill in under-eye hollows
  • Contour the cheeks or jawline

Candidates must be in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the results, and not be pregnant or breastfeeding. Before undergoing a Restylane® cosmetic procedure at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery, you will have a consultation with our patient counselor to determine if this dermal filler suits you, based on your individual needs and medical history.

Patients with a history of severe allergies or anaphylaxis should not receive Restylane® fillers.

What to Expect from a Restylane® Procedure

Restylane® is a quick in-office procedure involving little to no pain. Dr. Barr will usually administer a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort and sanitize the injection sites before starting the injection process.

Depending on the scope of the procedure, the entire Restylane® process takes between a few minutes to 30 minutes. The patient should see an almost immediate effect.

After Your Restylane® Procedure

Most patients recover quickly and can resume their normal activities shortly after a Restylane® treatment. Some swelling, bruising, redness, and localized pain are expected during the recovery process and should disappear within a few days.

Following your treatment:

  • Avoid Touching the Treated Area: Avoid touching, rubbing, or applying pressure to the treated area immediately after the procedure to prevent the filler from shifting.
  • Use Cold Compresses: Applying cold compresses to the treated area can help reduce swelling and discomfort. Be sure to use a clean cloth or towel to avoid any risk of infection.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activities: Avoid strenuous exercise, saunas, hot tubs, and activities that may cause excessive sweating for at least 24-48 hours post-treatment to prevent swelling or bruising.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to help the body heal faster and improve overall skin health.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Blood Thinners: Avoid alcohol consumption and blood-thinning medications for a few days after the procedure to minimize the risk of bruising.
  • Protect Your Skin: Use sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure to protect the skin and maintain the results of the treatment.
  • Keep Your Follow-Up Appointments: Attend all follow-up appointments at Palm Beach Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery so we can assess your results, address any concerns, and provide you with further guidance on aftercare.
  • Be Patient: Results from dermal filler treatments like Restylane may not be immediately visible. It can take a few days to see the full effects as any swelling or redness subsides.

Patients should call their doctor right away if they experience excessive pain, bleeding, an infection, or an allergic reaction.
