About Restylane

Metairie, LA plastic surgeon Dr. Cynthia Mizgala offers a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing lines, wrinkles, and lost volume. Restylane is our most popular dermal filler because it treats different areas of concerns with different formulas for results that are long-lasting. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA). When Restylane products are injected, they give the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A unique treatment plan can address mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and mid-face. A Woman Plastic Surgeon carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:

  • Restylane: Fills in facial wrinkles and folds
  • Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
  • Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate smile and laugh lines
  • Restylane Silk: Builds volume in the lips and smoothes vertical lip lines

Ideal Candidates

Restylane injectable treatments are great for any woman or man over the age of 21 who is looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your concerns and goals. Restylane can help you correct visible signs of aging, including fine lines on your face, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, is mixed with Restylane to ensure a comfortable experience.

Procedure Technique

Restylane dermal injections take place inside the treatment room at A Woman Plastic Surgeon. A numbing cream is applied for increased patient comfort. The treatment is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Different Restylane products may be recommended for different areas and can be injected all during one visit.

What to Expect

When your Restylane procedure is done, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what is being treated so talk to Dr. Mizgala about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away after several hours. Bruising can appear, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. Most patients will experience significant improvement immediately after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last about a year; however, some patients prefer a touch-up treatment, often combined with BOTOX injections, at about 6 months.
