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 Silk: An FDA-approved injectable that is used on the lips and around the mouth to smooth out the skin and add fullness to the lips.
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.

- Are over 21
- Have moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the mouth and nose

"Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff are wonderful. In July of 2019 I had my consultation appointment. The moment my husband and I walked in, I knew I was in good hands. Kristy and Dr. Mizuguchi answered all of my questions and answered questions I hadn’t even thought of yet. Fast forward to October 2019. I had breast augmentation surgery. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results. After breast feeding 3 little ones throughout the past 6 years, it was nice to have a small ‘mom makeo...ver’ to feel beautiful again. He even called later the night of surgery to check on me and see how things were going. I unfortunately had an allergic reaction to either the pain meds or antibiotic but him and his staff were on top of it and had it taken care of right away. Everything has been a 5 star from day one of calling their practice. I highly recommend Dr. Mizuguchi and his staff!"- C.K. / Facebook / Jan 04, 2020
"Dr. Mizuguchi and his entire staff are truly amazing. They all give off positive vibes & really care about the experiences they provide. I am almost 3 weeks post op (breast augmentation). They’ve made me feel at ease with decisions, asking questions, and the overall care they provide. I am beyond happy with my choice in Dr Mizuguchi, and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. He most definitely exceeded my expectations, all while making the entire process so smooth! I honestly couldn’t be any happier with my results and feel so much better about myself!!!"- C.W. / Facebook / Dec 11, 2019
"OMG... I never thought I would be someone who needed this procedure. - After my 3rd and 4th babies were delivered I realized my body would never be the same. I had twins. It was rough on my body. Over the last 18 years, I tried everything to gain core strength. Nothing worked and now I realize why. I had a very large open area in my upper abd. Muscles. I remember taking up pilates and yoga thinking it would help. Both made it even worse. I also did triathlons . I understand the reason I was unable to run after I swam and biked.I understand my body mechanics better. Wow, I wish I had done this years ago. I really did not want to resort to surgery. If others go through the same as me I hope they find a good surgeon . Some of my friends understand what I have been through and some think I I did it for looks. Looking good is a benefit from this surgery. But my core strength was more important.I had started having back injuries that kept getting worse. The more I hurt my back the less I could do physically. It was getting harder to go for walks. Thank you to the staff and doctor for encouraging me to go forward with this procedure. I hope other women who have the same issues seek good surgeons. Having babies is hard on our bodies . I had twins and it was even harder. Pros I finally have answers to my abd. Issues. Cons it is still a surgery."- S. / RealSelf / Dec 10, 2019
"I can’t say enough about Dr. Mizuguchi and everyone in his office. They are friendly and helpful and guide you through your surgery from start to finish. I couldn’t be more pleased with the results of my breast reduction and lift. He did an amazing job and my only regret is that I didn’t do the surgery 10 years ago. He is professional and genuinely a great person, taking the time to put his patient at ease. I would highly recommend a consultation with Dr. Mizuguchi if you are considering having anything done for yourself. My results are wonderful!!"- K.F. / Healthgrades / Dec 09, 2019
What to Expect
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.
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.
