 Want to enhance your lips, or get rid of wrinkles?


Facial wrinkles and creases begin to appear as the underlying collagen and elastin fibers begin to break down and wear out. While this breakdown is part of the natural aging process, it can also result from excessive squinting, frowning and smiling. 



At Florida Cosmetic Surgery Center, our Plastic Surgeons perform wrinkle treatments with Restylane®, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Lyft, Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne for patients in the Orlando region to help meet your goals without fear of an allergic reaction. This natural, synthesized and fully degradable hyaluronic acid that forms Restylane has been used with great success for years.



How do They Work?

Restylane® products contain hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. It is injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in your skin, it creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip, Restylane® can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other biodegradable implants, Restylane® is not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.


What Areas Respond the Best to Treatment?

Fine lines on the upper and lower lip that are not severe enough to require laser resurfacing smooth and fill nicely with Restylane® Silk. Deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek areas (nasolabial, melolabial and lines at the corners of the mouth) respond well using Restylane® Refyne and Defyne as well. 

Is it Safe?

Yes. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body's tissues. The synthetic, biodegradable hyaluronic acid known as Restylane® has been used safely for many years.




What are the Treatments Like?

The treatment is performed by injecting Restylane® under your skin with a very small needle. Since no pre-test is needed, your procedure can usually be done in less than thirty minutes. Many patients like the added comfort provided when we apply an anesthetic cream, while others prefer an anesthetic block. This makes the treatment relatively painless.


How Long Does it Last?

Depending on the area treated, most folds and wrinkles require one treatment. The repeat maintenance treatment is not usually required for approximately six months or longer. By experience, Restylane® products last almost twice as long as regular collagen injections.

The great thing about Restylane®  is that you can replenish your natural beauty whenever you feel the need. Unlike permanent implants, Restylane® always leaves you a choice when the effect of the treatment has worn off.  A touch-up can be performed any time you like after the previous treatment.




How will I Look After my Treatment?

After your Florida Cosmetic Surgeon performs Restylane®  injections, normal activities can be resumed immediately. Discomfort is minimal. The treatment site may have a little swelling, which may last a few hours. There may be some slight bruising which can be covered with make-up. Depending on the area treated, correction can last up to six months or longer. If the lips are treated, initial swelling and tenderness may occur within the first several days, but subsides after two to three days.
