Restylane uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A unique dermal filler plan can address mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the lips and mid-face. Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:

Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any woman or man older than 21 years old who is looking to rejuvenate their overall appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you correct visible signs of age, such as fine lines on your face, or if you would like to improve the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve moderate or severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several treatments are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation to prevent a negative reaction.
"Austin-Weston is amazing. My first experience with them was in 2007 when I had a life-changing breast reduction. I healed quickly, had minimal scarring and was able to finally buy a shirt that buttoned within weeks of the surgery. 10 years later, I'm still thrilled with the results.For the past year, I've been seeing Savannah for laser hair removal of some hair in undesirable places. Each time, Savannah is incredibly nice and gentle... And there's a noticeable difference each time. After 6 full sessions and a few touch ups, you can't even tell! And after 30 years on this earth, she informed me that I did not have oily skin and switched me over to an Austin-Weston moisturizer that has greatly improved my complexion and made my skin look so much better!The hair removal has greatly improved my confidence and I'm so excited about the results!"- N.C. / Yelp / Dec 12, 2017

"Jocelyn is a miracle worker ! She wholly has an aesthetic eye for detail and perfection. I've come to her at least four times now for non-surgical enhancement.Each time, she has taken the time to listen (and truly listen! Not cutting me off or dismissing my concerns or questions like previous medical professionals I have encountered). I usually come with a list of 5-7 questions and an ideal beauty goal in mind. She is very knowledgeable and patient. And most of all, she's realistic in her approach and practice. I appreciate that very much. She doesn't upsell procedures like other greedy doctors and nurses. As you can tell, I've had appalling experiences in the past. But, Jocelyn has shown me the light! I feel valued as a patient whenever I come into the Austin-Weston Center. I will never let anyone else touch my face but her!"- F.T. / Yelp / Feb 19, 2018
"I am so happy I chose Austin-Weston for my Mommy Makeover! Dr. Weston is quite simply one of the kindest doctors I have ever met. He did a marvelous job and I feel fabulous! The nurses that work there are fantastic as well. Friendly, kind, caring and very good at what they do. I saw Jocelyn for the first time today for Botox and she was just delightful. Highly recommend Austin-Weston!!!!! Don't bother looking anywhere else."- H.G. / Yelp / Feb 16, 2018
Restylane dermal injections are performed in the treatment room at Austin-Weston, The Center for Cosmetic Surgery. While some Restylane treatments are pre-mixed with the local anesthetic lidocaine, a numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected in your skin with a very fine needle and gently massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to decrease inflammation. Every Restylane formula is injected with a similar technique but with different areas treated to fit your unique concerns and goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane procedure is done, you may resume your day. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what you are having treated, so ask your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this often resolves on its own after several hours. Bruising may appear but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activities like exercise for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least the first night. Many patients will experience visible changes right after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injection treatments generally last about one year based on the formula selected.
