Gordon Plastic Surgery in The Woodlands, TX provides a wide range of dermal filler injections to help correct signs of aging, addressing lines, wrinkles, and lost volume. Restylane is one of the most popular brands of injectable wrinkle fillers since it treats several issues with specialized formulas for long-lasting results. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), giving the complexion a softer, natural look that is more supple and full. A unique treatment plan can treat mild to severe facial wrinkles and lines, as well as add fullness to the lips and mid-face. Gordon Plastic Surgery carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane: Corrects facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Treats moderate to deep smile and laugh wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates volume and lift in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects fine to moderate laugh and smile lines
- Restylane Silk: Creates fullness in the lips and corrects vertical lip lines
Restylane treatments are suitable for any person older than the age of 21 who is looking to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your procedure will be customized to suit your needs and goals. Restylane can help you correct early signs of aging, including fine facial lines, or improve the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also improve moderate to severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several treatments have the anesthetic lidocaine so you need to disclose any allergies during your pre-treatment consultation to prevent a reaction.

Restylane injections are performed in the office at Gordon Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream can be put on the treatment areas for increased comfort if desired. The product is injected into your skin through a very fine needle and then massaged so it fills the needed areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane formula is injected the same way but on different areas of the face targeted based on your specific needs and goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane procedure is complete, you can return to your day. Your recovery timeframe will vary based on what is being treated so ask your injector about what you should expect. The injection sites may be slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may appear, but this may be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for the first night. Many patients will notice some changes right after treatment, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injection treatments typically last about a year based on the exact product selected.
