Restylane Frequently Asked Questions
At SkinMD, we are very excited to offer Restylane and the Restylane family of fillers at our office in Hurst and Weatherford, TX. To improve your signs of aging by addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines, Restylane is a popular brand that treats many aesthetic issues with specialized formulas for results that last. It uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and suppler. A personal dermal filler plan can correct mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the cheeks and lips. SkinMD carries many Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane-L: Augments facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Fills moderate-to-severe laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Elevates your facial contour by adding in volume to the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Treats light-to-moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Creates fullness in the lips and the vertical lines on the lips
We have a team of certified Restylane injectors at SkinMD. We can meet with you in a private consultation.
Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you address the initial signs of aging, such as fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also reduce severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain Restylane formulas have lidocaine for your comfort, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with your injector to prevent a negative reaction.

"Dr. Xia defines the highest quality of patient care. Professional, knowledgable, and personable. In my opinion, Dr. Xia is one of the finest MDs available."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jan 23, 2020
"Best experience I've had with a dermatologist in 16 years of needing skin cancer care. Dr. Xia is considerate and caring to a patient's needs. He performed a long, complicated MOHS surgery on my forehead. I was not new to MOHS, this was my third. The first was performed by a surgeon in another city and nothing about that experience left me willing to be proactive about my dermatology care. My follow-up appointments with Dr. Xia by comparison have been pleasant and helpful, which makes me a more compliant patient. As his patient, I felt listened to because he shows genuine concern for what you're asking or feeling unsure about. I'm very thankful to have had Dr. Xia as my surgeon and my follow-up dermatologist."- K.G. / Healthgrades / Nov 14, 2019

Restylane treatments are performed in the office at SkinMD in a treatment room by one of our Restylane injectors. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if desired. The filler will be injected into your skin with a fine-gauge needle and then the skin will be massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to subdue inflammation.
What to Expect with Restylane®
Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery period will vary based on what you are having treated, so ask your Restylane injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this typically fades away within a day. Bruising may occur, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injections last around one year based on the formula selected.
