Many offices and medi-spas can perform Restylane injections, but our center has the expertise to give you a natural look without appearing "over inflated." We have performed over 3000 Restylane injections and are one of the top providers in Northern California.
Restylane is made from non-animal-based hylauronic acid, which is a naturally occurring sugar-like substance found in your own skin. As we age, the hylauronic acid in our tissue diminishes, resulting in lines and wrinkles. Restylane, like Collagen or fat injections, can be used to restore volume to areas of the face to create a fuller, more youthful look. Since Restylane binds to water, it has a soft and natural consistency.
Restylane is injected into facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (those lines from the side of the mouth to the nose), marionette lines (the grooves that pull the mouth down at the corners) and hollows under the eyes. It can also be used to enhance thin lips, minimize vertical lip lines and to help reduce the feathering of lipstick onto the skin. Since it can be accurately placed within these areas, a customized lip can be created according to your preference.
Treatment results from Restylane typically lasts 6 months, and beyond for some patients. No skin test is needed, so you can start your treatment at your first visit. Treatments are repeated as needed. Lip enhancement can cause significant swelling for 48 hours. Treatment of other facial areas can also be associated with some swelling and bruising. Icing can help minimize these side effects. Without ongoing treatments, Restylane is gradually absorbed by the body, and your face returns to its original contours.
The Restylane line of products smooths away facial wrinkles and folds ( Restylane, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne ), provides subtle lip enhancement (Restylane, Restylane Silk), smooths the lines around the mouth (Restylane Silk), adds lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane Lyft), and helps reverse the signs of volume loss in the back of the hands (Restylane Lyft).
Restylane Kysse: Restylane Kysse is the first lip filler designed with XpresHAn Technology™ for flexible movement and natural-looking volume proven to last for up to 1 year. Enhance texture and color of the lips while maintaining a full range of expressions.
Restylane Silk: Finally, a filler that can help you achieve your ideal lips. Restylane Silk is the first FDA-approved product
specifically designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of wrinkles around the mouth in patients 21 years of age and older.
Restylane Lyft: Help complete your aesthetic look with natural-looking volume in your cheeks and hands for a smoother, fuller appearance.

Restylane: Restylane can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Restylane Refyne: Restylane Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology™ to help soften laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines). This can help you restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your facial expressions. So, you always look like you. Talk to your specialist and see for yourself why it’s worth it.
Restylane Defyne: Crafted with XpresHAn Technology™, Restylane Defyne helps smooth out deep laugh lines (nasolabial folds and marionette lines) as well as enhance chin projection. Using innovative cross-linking technology, Restylane Defyne is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is able to help restore a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, while helping you maintain your natural expressions and movement.
Restylane Contour: As we age and lose volume in the midface, we also lose definition in the cheeks. Restylane Contour is the only cheek filler with XpresHAn Technology™ that restores your natural contour, frees dynamic expression, and refreshes your look. Balancing the science and art of aesthetics, this unique injectable hyaluronic acid gel creates natural-looking, subtly rejuvenated cheeks that are reminiscent of your younger self, but true to what makes you beautiful today.
