I'm 29 years old and I'm noticing some fine lines in the nasalobial region which I'm not taking kindly to. It's not enough to warrant a whole syringe of Restylane as they're quite minimal. I'm also interested in popping the remainder into my lips. What would the cost of 1 syringe of Restylane be in the long island, NY area?

Our office generally charges $550 for 1cc of Restylane, but every so often we do have some promotions so it is good to check in with your office to see when they are having specials. The price will only change a little, so it is most important for you to find a highly experienced injector to do the procedure. Regardless of price, you will get the best results when you go to someone who is certified and has very good experience with injecting Restylane into your lips. Good Luck!
Shopping for the right injector, not cheapest price
Good feedback from the panel members. However, with all due respect, training rather than title is what makes for a more experienced injector. Rather than minimizing the role of many medical professionals that are experts at aesthetic injectable procedures, the message should be to find a practitioner that is well versed in current techniques, products, and stays current with training. As suggested, one doesn't have to venture too far on Realself or in the forum arena to discover that many negative outcomes encountered by consumers/patients were physician-administered.
Therefore, please consider experience/training an important factor while also taking into consideration your budget. Under- treating an area or trying to treat several areas with not enough product will only leave you disappointed and with no value for your financial investment. I encourage patients to select a primary area to perform full correction or wait until their budget allows for them to treat all areas with the correct amount of product. In our area of practice (Los Angeles) most charge $500-$600 for one syringe of Restylane.
Cost shouldn't be your question, quality of the injector should be.
While costs can definitely vary (our cost per syringe of Restylane in Omaha, Nebraska is anywhere from $433 to 650 a syringe depending on amounts done and if it is bundled with other procedures), quality of the injector is what you really want t know.
The areas that you are considering take quite a bit of skill to do right. I know that most folks think that any person who has observed one or two of these procedures will do fine and it comes down to cost, but that couldn't be further from the truth. Look at some of the posts on Real Self to see what can (and does) go wrong when good people go to bad injectors. These consequences can last quite some time and may take hundreds or thousands of dollars to undo.
You are better off going to a true cosmetic surgeon and preferably a dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon who actually does their own injections (not a nurse or physician assistant/nurse practitioner) and has a reputation that is good in your area. Good luck.

Restylane in LI
The cost of one syringe of Restylane or Juvederm in the NY area is $600-900. Without seeing pictures it's difficult to say how much you would need but in general, younger women usually don't need as much filler as older women, but this is by no means the rule. Also, be careful in spreading one syringe of Restylane or Juvederm too thin. While everyone wants to be cost-conscious, using a fixed amount of filler in multiple areas can diminish its effect thereby leaving you with a less-than-satisfied outcome. Good luck!
