Restylane®

We celebrate the beauty of confidence at Thrive Medical Spa through dermal filler treatments. We believe in the power of enhancing natural beauty. With Restylane, a renowned dermal filler trusted by millions worldwide, we offer a portfolio of Restylane products to create facial harmony and balance as well as enhance shape, contour and definition of the face.

What is Restylane®?

Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers by Galderma, and it’s used to treat facial wrinkles and add volume to the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance found in the body and helps maintain hydration and elasticity in the skin.

Restylane portfolio offers several options depending on area of concern and desired outcome: Restylane-L is designed to smoother facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and wrinkles around the mouth.
Restylane Lift has been specifically formulated to add volume to the cheeks and midface area, providing a lifting effect.
Restylane Silk is a finer formulation ideal for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing fine lines around the mouth.
For Restylane Refyne and Defyne, these products are engineered with XpresHAn Technology to provide flexibility and support, making them suitable for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds while maintaining natural movement and expression.

Resylane was approved for cosmetic use by the FDA in 2003, becoming one of the first hyaluronic acid fillers commercially available. Since then, Restylane has gained widespread popularity worldwide and continues to be a trusted choice for medical spas and aesthetic practices.

The Restylane® Procedure

Before the treatment, patients should avoid blood-thinning medications like aspirin and ibuprofen, as well as supplements like fish oil and vitamin E, which can increase the potential for bruising. Alcohol consumption should be minimized in the days leading up to the treatment to reduce inflammation and improve healing. On the day of the treatment, patients should arrive with clean, make-up free skin to allow for proper assessment and preparation of the area. The practitioner will clean the skin and may apply a topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.

Once the skin is prepped, Restylane injections are administered using fine needles to target the areas of concern. The specific Restylane product and areas are predetermined in the consultation. The practitioner carefully injects the filler into the predetermined areas, adjusting quantity and placement as needed for desired results. Each patient is unique so the treatment will be customized to ensure best results.

Your Recovery and Results

The recovery after Restylane is minimal, with most patients able to resume their normal activities immediately. Common side effects may include mild swelling, redness, bruising, or tenderness at the injection sites, all which resolve in a few days. Patients can apply ice packs to reduce swelling and discomfort, and over the counter pain relievers may be used if desired.

In the short term, patients can expect immediate improvements in treated areas with enhanced volume and smoother skin texture. Long-term results from Restylane vary depending on factors such as the product used, treated area, and individual skin treatments. On average, Restylane results can last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, and some patients experience longer benefits with touch-up treatments.
