What Is Restylane?

Restylane is a collection of hyaluronic acid (HA) dermal fillers that seek to target deep lines in the face, add volume to the lips, and plump up deflated cheeks. Our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Nana Mizuguchi, recommends a Restylane injection to patients who are not quite ready for surgical intervention but still want to address signs of aging and bring back the youthfulness in their face. Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery carries all the different Restylane variations that can be decided on during your initial consultation at our Louisville, KY practice. We are proud to carry the following Restylane injectables:

Restylane Lyft: Treats the smile lines that form around the mouth and augments the cheeks for added facial volume.

Restylane Defyne: Uses both XpresHAn Technology™ and cross-linking in order to restore the youthfulness in the facial skin. Defyne is effective in addressing deep dynamic wrinkles on the face.

Restylane Refyne: An effective wrinkle reduction treatment. A Refyne injection is able to smooth out marionette lines and nasolabial folds in the facial skin.

Restylane Kysse: Designed for lip augmentation and the smoothing of upper lip lines. Uses hyaluronic acid with XpresHAn Technology, offering flexibility and natural-looking results.

Restylane Contour: Formulated for cheek and mid-face augmentation. It features unique cross-linking technology for lasting results and malleability, enabling precise sculpting and natural-looking enhancement.

Restylane-L: Enhances volume and smooths wrinkles. It is typically used for facial contouring, lip augmentation, and minimizing fine lines and folds.

With age, the complexion can begin to appear dry and flat. With Restylane injections at Mizuguchi Plastic Surgery, you can refresh your facial contour to gain several benefits using a variety of different treatment options, which include:

  • Natural components, including hyaluronic acid, which the body creates
  • Smoother and restored skin appearance
  • Variety of treatment areas, such as the neck, face, and hands
  • Build your self-confidence

How Does Restylane Work?

Restylane is administered as an in-office procedure and shouldn’t require additional numbing since lidocaine is already mixed in. Dr. Mizuguchi will determine the appropriate dosage and mark the appropriate injection site(s). Restylane will be administered with a fine needle to fill in the lips or the folds between the nose and mouth. The treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes to complete. There should be no downtime after an injection.

What Should I Expect After Restylane?

After a treatment, you may experience a tingling sensation and redness. Effects are immediate and can be quite long lasting. For lip augmentation, the results can last for around six months. When used to treat lines, wrinkles, and folds, Restylane can last up to one year. 

I have been seeing Audrey for over a year for filler and Dysport. I was referred by someone else who went to the same place as I did previously. I have to say I'm very happy, she's very honest about things and knows what is best for her patients, which I like. I've avoided doing botox for years in fear of looking like I am plastic that is not the case at all! Very wonderful and professional I'm so glad I was able to connect up with her.

I appreciate Audrey’s willingness to answer my questions and explain things thoroughly to me. I found her to be very knowledgeable and she offered suggestions which she thought would work best for me.
