Restylane® is a prescription injectable designed to replace diminished hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring substance that creates the fullness and elasticity in your skin. Over time, as you age, you lose hyaluronic acid and your skin develops wrinkles and folds.

Restylane® is composed of a non-animal based hyaluronic acid and restores volume to your skin to reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and create youthful contours. It’s injected into the skin to fill areas where there are depressions and can also be used to fill fine lines elsewhere on the face where BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® do not completely eliminate the lines.


As the world’s most studied and most-used cosmetic dermal filler, Restylane® has a well-defined safety profile and is approved for the treatment of severe to moderate wrinkles and lines on the face. Areas of the face in which Restylane® has shown to help include the:

  • Eyes
  • Cheeks
  • Jaw
  • Chin
  • Frown lines (marionette lines)
  • Smile lines (nasolabial lines)
  • Lips

One popular use for Restylane® is for lip augmentation. Since it’s an injectable gel, the lip can be shaped however the patient wants. Restylane® can also be used for cheek augmentation, to produce a higher-appearing cheekbone. Some acne or other types of scars may be smoothed out with an injection of Restylane® underneath.

The treatment itself takes only about 10 minutes in the office. Because this is a non-invasive procedure, there’s no downtime, and you may return to work immediately. This treatment can also be done in conjunction with other injectables or even with facial surgery.

An experienced physician should perform the treatment to ensure that you achieve the desired result without causing an overcorrection. Done properly, Restylane® creates an immediately visible and dramatic correction to the lines and wrinkles on your face. Our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Malik Kutty has experience with this treatment and can place this injectable where you want it most for a smoother, more rejuvenated appearance.

The skin will degrade the injected material over time, so Restylane® injection is not permanent. This treatment generally lasts about six months but may vary depending on the individual.


As in any plastic surgery procedure, it’s important to undergo a consultation with our doctor to make sure that whatever treatment you desire is safe and effective for you. This applies to facial injectables as well. Dr. Kutty will meet with you to discuss your concerns and goals and determine the best course of action for you. He’ll also evaluate your current health and medical history to make sure this treatment provides you with the benefits you want to achieve.

Please talk with Dr. Kutty about any medical conditions you may have or if you have any of the following during your consultation, including:

  • If you have a history of allergies or are allergic to liodcaine
  • If you’re pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to be pregnant
  • If you have a history of scarring or any pigmentation conditions
  • If you’re planning any other facial procedures or treatments
  • If you’re on any immunosuppressive treatments
  • If you take any blood thinners or medicines that extend bleeding
  • If you’re prone to bleeding or have any bleeding disorders
