What is Restylane?
Restylane is a popular solution to treat the facial wrinkles and lines that can come with aging. It is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural substance produced by the body. When injected into the face, it is commonly placed in areas like the nasolabial folds (smile lines), the creases between the eyes, and the lips. Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Suzman will administer this treatment method to patients who are seeking smoother, more youthful looking skin. It can last for up to 6 months in certain patients, with softer, younger-looking skin.
The Restylane family of fillers offers various formulas depending on your specific skin needs, including:
Restylane Silk, Lyft, Refyne, and Defyne
Both men and women can attain softer, natural looking results with Restylane. It is safe to use for any skin type and any ethnicity and works best for patients who have experienced a loss of volume around the mouth, under the eyes, and for those who have "cracks" to fill, such as the deep lines that can develop between the eyebrows. Women who desire to have fuller lips are also good candidates for this filler.
"Dr. Suzman did my rhinoplasty and it was the best decision I have ever made. It was for both medical and cosmetic reasons. My nose is gorgeous, so natural. I had an amazing experience. Everyone was so kind and comforting going into it. Dr. Suzman was gentile I barely bruised. I highly recommend Dr. Suzman and his team !"- G.T. / Yelp / May 23, 2019
"I don't have enough good things to say about Dr. Suzman and his team. I have been after a breast surgery for the past 10 years and once I met Dr. Suzman, I knew I didn't have to look any further. His side bed manners are exceptional and his work speaks for itself. If you are looking to get plastic surgery done, contact his team, you are in the best hands possible."- V.S. / Google / Jul 16, 2019
"Dr. Suzman closed after my MOHS surgery. The surgery was front & center on my nose. I have to say -- Dr. Suzman & the staff at his office, as well as the Rye Ambulatory Center, made a painful and uncomfortable situation as pleasant as possible with his informative, calming & pleasant nature, as well as a super-delightful staff. Helen Reyes, his PA-C, who handled a lot of my post-op visits and fresh wound care, was superb. Highly recommend."- G.D. / Google / Oct 26, 2019
"Everyone at Dr. Suzman's office is truly beyond wonderful. I've never had such a consistent experience with a doctor, his staff or hospital in my life and I'm utterly amazed and will miss interacting with them once I'm recovered from surgery (which was also excellent). 10 Stars!""- Pt / Office Visit / Feb 24, 2020
"I would highly recommend Dr. Suzman and his staff to anyone looking to undergo a rhinoplasty procedure. Each step of the way, from our first zoom consultation to our in-person appointments and surgery, he made me feel extremely comfortable and confident in my decision to choose him as my surgeon. It has only been about a week since my surgery, and I am already thrilled with the results."- M. / Healthgrades / Jul 22, 2020
Restylane is administered through an easy and quick injection process. The dermatologist will mark the injection sites on the patient’s face using a washable marker, in order to ensure accuracy during the procedure. Using a thin needle, the gel is injected into the designated areas to smooth wrinkles and folds as well as add volume to the face. A numbing ointment may be rubbed around the injection sites to prevent discomfort during treatment. The duration of the treatment is dependent upon how much filler is being injected and where. Typically, treatment last up to an hour and patients leave looking younger and refreshed.
What to Expect
Following treatment, the effects of Restylane can be seen immediately. Lines that once appeared as deep cracks, will appear smooth and soft. For patients receiving a Restylane injection into the lips, the lips will appear swollen for a couple of days, but then will look natural and beautiful. Immediately following the treatment, there may be some swelling and redness that occurs at the injection sites, however this will go away after a few hours. Patients are advised to follow all aftercare instructions to see the best results and they may return to their regular routines immediately. Results are expected to last 6 to 12 months. After that time, patients may return for additional treatment.
