Other FAQ About Treatment
What Is Restylane?
This dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid. It is used to fill in wrinkles and lines on the face. It can also be used to add volume to the cheeks, lips, and chin. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the body, and it helps to keep skin hydrated and plump.
As we age, our bodies produce less and less hyaluronic acid. This can lead to wrinkles, lines, and a loss of volume in the face. A filler like this one can help to combat these signs of aging by replenishing the hyaluronic acid in the skin.

How Can I Choose Which Filler Is Right for Me?
The best way to choose which filler is right for you is to consult with us. During your consultation, we will assess your individual needs and recommend the best dermal filler for you. We’ll also go over your medical history and any allergies you may have to ensure that treatment is right for you.
Is This Product Safe?
Yes, this is a safe and effective dermal filler. It has been FDA-approved for use in the United States, and it has been used safely and effectively for many years. Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance that occurs naturally in the body. Because of this, there is minimal risk for allergic reactions.
What Areas Does This Filler Particularly Treat?
While this filler can be used to treat a number of different areas, it is particularly effective in treating the following:
Lines Around the Mouth
Lines around the mouth form when we use facial muscles to speak, laugh, or smile. Over time, these lines can become permanent. Restylane can be used to fill in these lines and give the mouth a more youthful appearance.
As we age, we may lose volume in our cheeks. This can make us look older and can also contribute to the formation of lines around the mouth. The cheeks tend to sag due to a loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. Collagen in particular is the building block of skin, so a loss of collagen can lead to a number of different signs of aging.
This treatment can also be used to plump up the lips. It can add volume to the lips and also help to smooth out lines around the mouth.
Restylane can also be used to add volume to the chin. This can help to create a more balanced and youthful appearance.
Is This Treatment Comfortable?
Yes, this is a comfortable treatment. The injected gel helps to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, while the hyaluronic acid in the gel provides long-lasting hydration. Treatment is minimally invasive, and there is minimal downtime required afterward. This makes it a popular choice for busy people who want to improve their appearance without major surgery. We also go out of our way to ensure your comfort throughout the process.
Dr. Steven F. Weiner is credited with developing the cannula injection technique for dermal fillers. Cannulas provide greater safety, less bruising, less downtime, and reduced pain compared to traditional filler injections. Dr. Weiner has trained hundreds of injectors each year on fillers for years, and since 2017 he has been a top three physician trainer for Restylane products in particular. His expertise is sought out worldwide.
Will I Look Frozen or “Worked On?”
Because of Dr. Weiner’s expertise, not only will your treatment be comfortable, but you can be guaranteed that the results will look natural. Natural-looking results come from an injector who has the perfect combination of experience and artistic skill. The injector must know exactly where to put the product to get the results that each individual patient is looking for. Dr. Weiner has just that kind of skill.
In addition, dermal fillers never give a “frozen” look because, unlike Botox, they don’t affect the muscles. The only way to get a “frozen” look is through paralysis of the muscles with a neuromodulator treatment from an inexperienced injector.
Can I Combine This Treatment With Others?
This treatment is often combined with other treatments, such as neuromodulators or laser skin resurfacing, to give patients an overall refreshed look. This is because each treatment targets different areas of concern. For example, neuromodulators can be used to target wrinkles caused by muscle movement, while Restylane can be used to target wrinkles caused by loss of volume.
We also offer other great treatments that can be used in combination with this one, like chemical peels, the Hydrafacial, Skin Pen microneedling, and more.
What Exactly Is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally found in the human body. It helps to keep our skin hydrated and plump. One molecule of hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water! This is why it is such an effective treatment for wrinkles and fine lines.
While hyaluronic acid is an effective treatment for wrinkles and fine lines, topical treatments that contain hyaluronic acid are not as effective because they cannot penetrate the skin deeply enough to reach the dermis, where wrinkles and fine lines form. This is why injectable treatments like Restylane are so effective. The gel is injected into the dermis, where it can immediately start to hydrate and plump the skin.
How Does Treatment Stimulate Collagen Production?
Injectable treatments like Restylane stimulate collagen production in two ways. First, the act of injecting the gel into the skin helps to stimulate collagen production. Second, the hyaluronic acid in the gel helps to attract water to the injection site, which also helps to stimulate collagen production.
Whenever the body is “injured,” collagen rushes to the area to rebuild. Injections are not true injuries, but these “micro-injuries” are enough to fool your body into producing collagen in greater quantities for months at a time.
