Restylane is an effective wrinkle treatment
Restylane is a very popular and effective hyaluronic acid-base dermal filler. It has been used widely throughout the face for the correction of deep lines and wrinkles. Keep in mind that patients today have many different options in terms of dermal fillers and wrinkle treatments. The best treatment for you wrinkle depends on your preferences, how long you would like the treatments last, and the characteristics of your wrinkle. Typically, we recommend Botox for wrinkles in the upper part...
The best wrinkle treatment
The reality is that the "best" treatment for wrinkles for one person may not be the "best" treatment for another person. Several factors must be considered when assessing an individual and deciding what is the "best" treatment for that person. These factors include location, cost and desired outcome. Certainly, from my perspective, Restylane is a great injectable. This is because usually we get exactly the result we are expecting. The satisfaction rate is...

Restylane is injected in small amounts underneath the skin with a small needle to fill in creases, lines, wrinkles and folds. It is excellent for under the eyes to reduce puffiness and dark circles. It is also fabulous in the lips, nasolabial fold and marionette lines. To maximize comfort, an anesthetic block may be administered. I feel it is very important to reduce or eliminate any discomfort during Restylane treatments. Robert F. Gray, MD, FACS
Fillers for Wrinkles
Lines in the upper lip are often bothersome. These unwanted lines can be filled by using a small amount of Restalyne or Juvaderm. Often these lines cannot be fully corrected as too much Restylane can make someone look fake. We, therefore, recommend considering injection of Restylane or Juvaderm combined with Laser Treatment.
Resylane is a flexible hyaluronic acid dermal filler that can be used to correct deep lines and wrinkles throughout the face. Restylane is an excellent filler, and is especially good for lips which it has received FDA approval. However, there are a number of quality fillers available so the appropriate choice will be based on the area to be corrected, the amount of correction needed, and the comfort level of the injector with the dermal filler. Consult with 3 - 4 experienced and...
Best Wrinkle Treatments!
TCA chemical peels (medium peel $750-1500) do the most for wrinkles of any modality but usually wrinkles need a combination of treatments such as filler like restylane, juvederm or radiesse($550-650/syringe). Lasers are helpful but not as cost effective as TCA peels. Sincerely, David Hansen,MD
Restylane and wrinkles
Restylane is one of several fillers approved by the FDA for improvement of appearance. I think of lines on the face as those lines created by muscle movement (like the Crow's feet around the eyes) and those created by the effects of gravity on the soft tissues (like the nasolabial fold which runs from the corner of the nose to the corner of the mouth). Restylane and other soft tissue fillers are good for correcting grooves that result from gravity or loss of fullness, whereas Botox...
Restylane injections are great on wrinkles.
Restylane is made from a natural substance, and its yielding but firm consistency helps give you a very natural look. It can be used to smooth wrinkles and restore youthful plumpness throughout your face, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and works particularly well in the lips and around the mouth and nose.
Restylane is a great treatment for indentations and shadowing
Restylane is one of the dermal-fillers used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles to restore volume, smooth wrinkles, and revive youthful contours. The fillers differ in viscosity and different injectors have different preferences. Fillers work by filling up and area under the skin. This can mean removing shadows under the eyes or augmention the cheek bones. I like to use Restylane under the eyes, in the cheeks, and lips. It is a soft material and tends to...
Restylane and facial lines
Restylane is a great product to inject in the face for facial depressions around the mouth in the marionette lines and along the nasolabial folds. I use it to augment the cheeks as well and fill out the nasojugal groove or to elevate the brow.
Restylane is one of several fillers available
Restylane and Juvederm are known as hyaluronic acid fillers and are good fillers to start with for nasolabial folds, lip augmentation or tear trough augmentation. Longevity for most is between 4-9 months. Perlane and Juvederm Ultra Plus may last a month or two longer and also serve as good fillers to start for cheek or brow augmentation. Evolence which is a pure collagen based filler which may still be available in some offices can last 6-12 months and has alot less risk of bruising and...
Best wrinkle treatment depends on the wrinkle
Restylane is an injectable dermal filler, and is very useful for medium to deeper lines on the face. The most common one is the nasolabial line, the fold that runs from the outside of the nostril towards that corner of the mouth. Fine wrinkles are not as amenable to treatment with fillers. Others, such as "crow's feet" and the vertical lines between the eyebrows, are caused by hyperactive expression muscles so Botox or Dysport work best there. And still others require combination...
Uses of Restylane
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler which has been around for years and which I use extensively. It can be used to treat many areas safely and effectively including the nasolabial folds (lines around nose extending to mouth), Marionette lines (lines around corners of mouth and the depression at the corners), cheek bones, frown lines, in the tear trough area under the eyes, for acne scars or other medical conditions that may have caused a depression in the skin. Make sure that a specialist...
Restylane is good for deep lines and static wrinkles. Dynamic wrinkles require Botox
Depends on the type of wrinkle you want to treat Dynamic wrinkles are ones that happen when you make expressions on your face-they move. examples are crow's feet around the eyes, frown lines and worry lines on the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles are best treated with Botox which quiets the muscle, stops the motion and thus the formation of the wrinkle. Static wrinkles and lines are those that you see when your face is at rest-they are usually deeper and around the mouth-examples are the nasal...
Restylane is a great wrinkle treatment
What is best for one person may not be best for another. We choose a filler based on the location and size of the area that we want to fill and take into consideration how oftern the patient can come in for maintenance. Cost should really be the last factor- you want the safest, most appropriate product for your particular issue. If there is more than one filler that will do the job, then you can compare costs, but that should not be your first question. Some fillers are better for...
Restylane is a good choice
Currently, we have an entire menu of excellent products for filler purposes. As these treatments continue to gain popularity, we will continue to see more options for practitioners and consumers. We are pleased with the good, consistent outcomes we achieve with Restylane. Also, the manufacturer of Restylane (Medicis) now has a choice of 1/2cc syringe, 1cc, and more recently, a 2cc syringe. They also have traditionally been proactive in offering rebates to their valued customers.
Choosing the correct wrinkle filler
Restylane is an excellent filler in an entire world of fillers ( Ranging from Collagen to hyaluronic acids (Restylane, Perlane,Juvederm) to Radiance and Sculptra and your own Fat).The advantages of hyaluronic acids are they are soft, lift, and can be used under the dermis and deeper to obtain a nice result that lasts 3 - 12 months depending on the particle size and location of injections.I am a platinum user of both Restylane and Juvederm. I determine when I use Restylane based on how much...
