What is Restylane?

Restylane is a widely popular hyaluronic acid based dermal filler that has gone viral in the market of cosmetic medicine. Serving versatile and distinctive purposes it is favored by some of the best doctors in New York, including Dr. Schwarzburg. Dr. Schwarzburg uses several varieties of Restylane at his boutique Upper East Side clinic in Manhattan.

Restylane has a line of products that include Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour, and Restylane SkinBoosters. Dysport is another product that belongs to the Restylane line; it is a neurotoxin that is commonly used to replace or to complement Botox injections. For more information on Dysport and its rejuvenating effects follow the link. All the Restylane products are available at Dr. Schwarzburg’s clinic, the most popular ones being Resylane Kysse and Restylane Lyft.

Due to their unique chemical compositions and particle sizes each of the Restylane products perfectly fits a certain area of the face based on the skin thickness and necessary treatment. Restylane products are based on hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occuring substance in the body. Hyaluronic acid works through absorbing water in the treatment area which gently and naturally creates volume in desired parts, thus treating fine lines, wrinkles, under eye hollows, cheeks, nasolabial folds, lips, and not only.

Restylane treatment

Which Areas of the Face and Body Can Be Addressed by Restylane?

  • Restylane for Cheeks: One of the major signs that gives away the aging process is the loss of volume in the cheeks which results in hollowness. Restylane Lyft injections are used to replace the lost volume in the cheeks giving a touch of freshness and youthfulness to the face.
  • Restylane for Tear Troughs: No matter what age group you belong to, if there is hollowness under your eyes it gives you an older and tired appearance. Restylane injections under the eyes can play a huge role in eliminating that old and tired look and refreshing the overall appearance of your face.
  • Restylane for Lips: Restylane injections are not only used to increase the lip volume, but also to reduce and eliminate the fine lines and wrinkles around the lips (smoker’s lines). As a result your lips will look younger and fuller. Restylane Kysse is the Restylane product that is most commonly used for the lips.
  • Restylane for Smile Lines: Restylane filler injections can easily eliminate nasolabial folds, laugh lines, or smile lines.
  • Restylane for Marionette Lines, Corners of the Mouth, and Jowls: Restylane does a wonderful job filling in folds and lines, like the ones that go down from the corners of the mouth to the chin typically giving the face an older look.
  • Restylane for Chin: Restylane injections can give you a non surgical chin augmentation enhancing the profile look of the chin, making it more pronounced and even.
  • Restylane for Nose: Liquid nose jobs have grown to be very popular, serving as an alternative to surgical rhinoplasties. It is possible to smooth out and straighten the bumps and asymmetries on one’s nose using Restylane injections.
  • Restylane for Temple: If there are indented temples on the face, they can leave an impression of overall hollowness. Restylane injections, however, can restore the youthful convexity in that area.
  • Restylane for Forehead: In case the patient has a concave anatomy, the forehead may seem to be indented or hollow. Restylane can be used to add volume to the forehead, creating a more rounded and prominent profile.
  • Restylane for Jawline: If you desire to have a more pronounced and chiseled look on your jawline be aware that Restylane injections can achieve that result.
  • Restylane as a Liquid Face Lift: Thoughtfully placed fillers can often serve as a great alternative to invasive surgical interventions if administered by experienced and skilled cosmetic dermatologists. It is a common practice to use Restylane for a non surgical face lift, resulting in reduction and elimination of aging signs without creating an apparently unnatural look.
  • Restylane for Acne Scars: Another application of Restylane is reduction and elimination of acne scars. This happens due to its skin lifting and overall texture improving properties. Besides, it has the capacity to fill in deeper scars.
  • Restylane for Neck Lines: The circular lines formed around the neck over the years can be addressed by Restylane.
  • Restylane for Hands: If you want to bring back the youthfulness of your hands then be aware that Restylane can do that by restoring the volume on the back of your hands.

What Is the Restylane Dermal Filler Injection Process?

As a first step of getting your Restylane dermal filler treatment you need to consult with Dr. Schwarzburg. This personalized consultation is a great opportunity to discuss all of your questions and concerns with a highly trained and experienced medical professional. Based on all the information gained during the consultation Dr. Schwarzburg will develop a customized treatment plan to meet your unique and individual needs. Depending on your individual case and goals, Dr. Schwarzburg will determine what is the most optimal dermal filler for you. Another important topic to discuss with the doctor before your treatment is your medical history which will help the doctor to understand if you are a good candidate for the procedure. If your candidature is confirmed, you can move forward with the process.

For your treatment records some photos will be taken before the actual procedure which will either be performed either on the same day as consultation or on another day that will match both your and Dr. Schwarzburg’s schedules, making sure there is enough time for delivering a careful and detailed treatment.

Depending on the area of treatment, a topical numbing cream may be applied to the skin 15 to 20 minutes prior to the procedure to reduce possible discomfort. Then Dr. Schwarzburg will remove the numbing cream, sanitize the area and carefully inject the Restylane with a particular technique that is best for your case. After the filler injection, you will be able to see  the immediately observable results as the filler absorbs water in the treatment area. The possible side effects are minimal, such as swelling and bruising. These can be easily treated with ice packs on the first day, and a warm compress and arnica gel on the following days until the bruising goes away. The results are known to last from 6 to 9 months depending on your case. Usually, in a week after the treatment you will be called to a follow up appointment so that the doctor can observe the progress of the process.


What Should I Do After Restylane Injections?

The main actions that you will need to take after the injections are: not rubbing and touching the injected area for five days after the procedure and avoiding heat/exposure to sun for 24 hours post treatment (this will help avoid extra swelling and redness). On the first day after the treatment it is highly advisable to apply an ice pack to the treatment area for swelling reduction purposes, which shall be followed by warm compresses and arnica gel on the following day until the bruising (if there is any) subsides.

Restylane & Restylane-L

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid based dermal filler. It is popular for filling in wrinkles and creases, as well as treating hollowness in certain areas of the face, including the under eyes, cheeks, and temples. It can also serve the purpose of adding volume to such areas as the lips, forehead, chin, and jawline to make the profile fuller, more even, and prominent. Restylane-L was the first Restylane filler which was then followed by some other Restylane products that are currently used for a number of different treatments, including the above-mentioned areas but not limited to them.

What Is a Restylane Lyft?

The typical purpose of Restylane Lyft is treating deep lines and hollowness in the face, such as deep wrinkles, hollow cheeks, smile lines (or nasolabial folds), and marionette lines that go down from the corners of the mouth to the chin. Restylane Lyft is also approved by FDA as a hand rejuvenation treatment to restore lost volume in the hands and give them a more youthful appearance.

Restylane Lyft with Lidocaine

Restylane Lyft has lidocaine in its composition that is why treatments with Restylane Lyft are far more tolerable than with an average filler. Apart from that Dr. Schwarzburg usually applies a topical numbing cream with lidocaine to the treatment area to relieve any possible discomfort the procedure can cause. It makes the treatment an easy and painless experience, with amazing results.

What is Perlane vs Restylane Lyft?

Virtually speaking Restylane Lyft and Perlane are the same product.

It uses cross-linking technology which results in a natural look. It has become one of the most popular fillers as it perfectly treats volume loss in the mid face and cheeks.

How Does Restylane Lyft Work?

Restylane Lyft absorbs water around the injection site and adds volume to hollow areas that have lost their fullness in the course of time.

This loss of collagen can be restored with the help of Restylane Lyft injections which do a great job at creating a more youthful and refreshed look and do not involve any surgical actions or recovery time.

What Is the Difference between Restyalne and Restylane Lyft?

Restylane is a dermal filler with hyaluronic acid as its basic component, which has been developed into an entire line of Restylane fillers. The diverse Restylane fillers have different textures and molecule sizes; each of them is ideal for a certain purpose and a particular treatment area. Restylane Lyft is one of the Restylane products; it differs from the regular Restylane with its thickness. Actually, Restylane Lyft has the highest stiffness among all the hyaluronic acid fillers on the market. Aside from Restylane and Restylane Lyft, there are also Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour, and Restylane SkinBoosters.

However, it can also be used in other areas of the face if approved by your injector. We cannot underestimate the importance of having your dermal fillers injected by board certified medical professionals who have the experience and expertise in the field to be able to properly administer the treatment without causing any adverse effects.

Is It Allowed to Inject Restylane Lyft in the Temples and How Long Does the Effect Last?

Can Restylane Lyft Be Used for Lip Enhancements?

In fact, you could go for a lip augmentation with Restylane Lyft but be aware that the results are likely to be exaggerated and unnatural looking and they will last long.

That is why the latter are usually preferred over Restylane Lyft. You will be able to discuss your desired results with Dr. Schwarzburg in detail during your personalized consultation, and he will present you his recommendations on the best possible filler to achieve your goals.

How Is Restylane Lyft Treatment Carried out?

The procedure of Restylane Lyft injections is pretty straightforward and is not likely to take any longer than 45-60 minutes in total (including the time for consultation and the actual process of injections). The treatment is preceded by a one on one consultation with Dr. Schwarzburg. This is a time when you have the chance to present your problem areas to the doctor, discuss your goals and raise your concerns. Based on all the information gained during the consultation Dr. Schwarzburg will develop an optimal treatment plan to match your own individual needs.

First of all the targeted area will be sanitized and a topical numbing cream may be rubbed into the area (depending on where it is) to reduce any possible discomfort caused by the procedure. The topical numbing creams usually contain lidocaine which is responsible for making the process less painful; it stays for about 15 to 20 minutes. After removing the numbing cream from the area of treatment it will be thoroughly sanitized one more time. Once these steps are completed Dr. Schwarzburg will administer the filler using a tiny needle with caution and care.

After the completion of the procedure you will be instructed to apply an ice pack to the treatment area for the rest of the day. As for the following day, you should replace the ice pack with a warm compress if there is any kind of bruising. The treatment effect typically lasts for 6 – 9 months.

What Instructions Should I Follow After My Restylane Lyft Treatment?

Immediately after the procedure Dr. Schwarzburg will provide you with an ice pack which you should apply to the treatment area to prevent any possible swelling. In case of bruising, you will be advised to use a warm compress and arnica gel on the following days of the treatment until bruising subsides. Also make sure not to touch or rub the area and do your best to avoid working out for 3 – 5 days after the treatment. To avoid extra swelling stay away from heat for the first 24 hours following the procedure.

How Long Do Restylane Lyft Results Last?

The typical duration of Restylane Lyft results is from 9 to 10 months. This, however, is very individual and depends on the body’s response. It is quite common for the patients to get touch up treatments before the fillers completely fade away in order to maintain their results instead of waiting for the fillers to completely dissolve and have the whole thing redone.

How Much Does Restylane Lyft Cost?

The number of syringes used and the area of treatment are the decisive factors when it comes to the price of Restylane Lyft. Such general areas as the nasolabial folds and cheeks typically require from 1 to 3 syringes. Though again this completely depends on the complexity of your individual case. The average cost of 1 Restylane Lyft syringe in New York city varies from $800 to $1400 and is conditioned by a number factors, e.g. the anatomical complexity, the number of syringes needed to correct the deficit, the experience of your doctor and the location of the clinic.

How Much Does a Syringe of Restylane Lyft Cost?

The cost of one syringe of Restylane Lyft is based on the location of the clinic where you want to have your treatment delivered as well as the experience and qualifications of your injector.

If this is the case and your injector is a board certified cosmetic surgeon or dermatologist, then the price will be reasonably higher than it would have been with a nurse clinician or aesthetician.

Restylane Lyft and the Jawline

Most people choose dermal fillers for different parts of their mid face, however there is an area on the face that is overlooked and yet shows obvious signs of aging – it’s the jawline and neck area. Caused by bone structure, fat, or loose skin from weight loss or aging, the jawline can appear to be less apparent.

Can Restylane Lyft Be Dissolved to Reverse the Results?

Restylane Lyft is a hyaluronic acid based filler which means that it does have the benefit of being dissolved by hyaluronidase injections. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that has the capacity to dissolve hyaluronic acid, completely eliminating the filler and its results. Sometimes Dr. Schwarzburg has to deal with cases when new patients come into his clinic with poorly placed filler and hence with asymmetrical or lumpy results. This is when Dr. Schwarzburg uses his expertise to transform the poorly administered fillers by dissolving them with the help of hyaluronidase and properly injecting a new filler to make the patient happy by giving them the results they initially desired.

Which One is Better: Restylane Lyft or Juvederm Voluma?

Both Restylane and Juvederm are approved by FDA as hyaluronic acid fillers designed to treat wrinkles and enhance the mid-face, as well as other areas of the face and body, including the cheeks, under eyes, nasolabial folds, temples, forehead, jawline, hands, and more. These two products are manufactured by two different companies, however both of them serve the same purpose. There are some minor differences in their chemical composition, molecule size, and density. And it would not do justice to any of them if the other one was called “better”.

Restylane Lyft for Hand Rejuvenation

There is an overlooked area of the body that shows the first signs of aging in a most prominent way – the hands. With aging we lose volume all over our bodies; this concerns our hands, too. Once the volume is lost on our hands, they tend to look bonier, veinier, and show more wrinkles. Restylane Lyft is FDA approved specifically for hand rejuvenation; it has the capacity to restore and plump the lost volume and give your hands a more rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne

Both Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne are designed to be used for different areas. However, Restylane Defyne is more commonly used to treat deeper lines, while Restylane Refyne is a better choice for moderate lines. Dr. Schwarzburg will analyze the condition of your skin and determine the filler that will be appropriate for your individual case. Both Restylane Refyne and Defyne are manufactured using an advanced technology known as XpresHAn. This is an innovative cross-linking technology for smooth gel creation that results in a very natural looking outcome.

What is Restylane Kysse?

The newest filler in the Restylane line is Restylane Kysse which is specifically designed to address lines around the lips. The lines that surround the borders of the lips, the smoker’s lines or perioral lines, add some extra years to our appearance. Being a gentle filler Restylane Kysse is perfect for the elimination of these fine lines. Restylane Kysse is also a widely known and demanded lip filler as it successfully makes the lips soft and plumpy in a very natural way. Restylane Kysse lip filler is often combined with the Russian lip technique; this combination is very popular, and yet it is quite difficult and requires mastering a specialized technique. Only the most skilled injectors, such as Dr. Schwarzburg, can administer the Russian Lip technique. Before performing Restylane Kysse lip injections, a topical numbing cream that contains lidocaine is applied to the lips to minimize the possible discomfort of the injection process.

When Is Restylane Kysse Going to Be Available?

Restylane Kysse was released in 2020, and yet it is difficult to find the product in most of the medical spas. We are glad to inform our clients that Miracle Face offers Restylane Kysse and is famous for its Russian Lip technique as Dr. Schwarzburg has the expertise in the field and the necessary skill set to inject this filler using many different techniques for your desired look. The Russian Lip technique aims at creating full, yet natural looking lips through injections that draw the filler upwards rather than outwards. As a result, the lip has its volume in an upward formation, instead of protruding forwards. This technique is the perfect way to avoid the “ducky look” so many dislike. For more details on the Russian Lip technique, click here.

Restylane Contour for Mid-face Cheek Augmentation

Restylane Contour is another novelty in the Restylane line that has gotten FDA approval for cheek augmentations, as well as volume restoration and contouring of the midface. In contrast to many other fillers, Restylane Contour is made in such a way that it allows flexibility and movement after injection. If performed by a skilled medical professional Restylane Contour can treat volume loss in the midface and cheeks, ridding people from common and inevitable signs of aging.

Restylane Defyne for Chin Augmentation

FDA has approved Restylane Defyne for chin augmentations. Ever since it has been used to enhance the volume of the chin creating a more pronounced profile view of it. Chin injections are often complemented by jawline fillers with the purpose of achieving a more defined profile without having to go the great length of surgical intervention, e.g. chin or jaw implants.

Restylane Silk for Lip Injections

Restylane Silk has been specifically developed to address fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and volumize the lips. It has small particle size, hence is a very soft and gentle filler – perfect for fine lines, e.g. those that are formed around the lips with aging, also known as smoker’s lines and perioral lines

Restylane for Tear Troughs: Under Eye Filler

There are multiple fillers designed for under the eyes, to treat the hollowness and loss of volume in the tear troughs. Restylane-L is the most commonly used filler for that area and, actually, the best one. Among the most obvious signs of aging are the dark circles and under eye hollows which can be well-addressed by Restylane-L. This is the reason the latter is so famous. Under eye fillers usually go hand in hand with cheek fillers, as these two areas tend to lose volume simultaneously.

Restylane fillers

What is Restylane Volyme?

Restylane Volyme was designed to complement Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne. It is a denser and firmer injectable, mostly used to add more notable volume to the targeted area. The inevitable part of the aging process is the loss of volume in our faces, which can be tackled by Volyme. The latter can be injected into certain areas of the face, such as the cheeks, chin, jowls, and jawline. Restylane Volyme lifts the face and restores the volume in the hollow parts of it.

Restylane SkinBoosters

Restylane SkinBoosters aim at improving the quality and the texture of your skin, making it extra hydrated and elastic. The difference between this filler and other fillers is that SkinBoosters is delivered through a number of microinjections throughout the face, instead of targeting a specific area for volumization purposes. With age, our bodies tend to lose hyaluronic acid, elastin, and collagen, leaving us with hollowness, wrinkles and uneven texture of the skin. Hyaluronic acid based fillers absorb the water surrounding the injection site; that is how they add volume, moisturize the skin and make it elastic and firm. Restylane SkinBoosters offer the best results over the course of three treatments – four weeks apart from each other. This is an awesome way to keep your youthful and revitalized looks. The results will be long lasting with regular maintenance visits.

What Is the Difference between Juvederm and Restylane?

Restylane and Juvederm are dermal fillers, both of which are based on hyaluronic acid and add volume to the face, neck and hands, treating hollowness caused by loss of adipose tissue. They replace lost collagen in the deep dermis of the skin. Juvederm is manufactured by Allergan and typically gives a little bit more volume than Restylane fillers do. As for Restylane, it is manufactured by Galderma and is mostly used for those areas that need a softer filler with less swelling. Both of the mentioned filler brands have their separate lines developed to hit different goals and serve different purposes. For example, Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk are direct competitors because they offer results that are similar to each other. It will not be fair to name one of the brands or products better than the others as they are different and need to be selected based on the patient’s needs. That is exactly what Dr. Schwarzburg does for his patients. This means that in some cases Restylane is the ideal solution, while in others – a certain product from the Juvederm line will be perfect.

Is It Allowed to Mix Juvederm and Restylane?

No negative reactions have been reported between Juvederm and Restylane. Actually, they are often delivered in combination as they work well in different areas. Both of them are hyaluronic acid based, hence they can be used interchangeably or together.

What Are the Side Effects of Restylane Injections?

All the minimally invasive procedures pose the possibility of certain side effects. Restylane injections are not an exception. However, the side effects associated with Restylane are minimal, namely redness, swelling, and bruising. Also, the area of treatment may feel somewhat tender after the procedure. All these side effects subside over the course of 3 days to two weeks (if there is bruising). Among the more severe side effects are infections, allergic reactions, keloids, and superficial necrosis at the injection site. The mentioned side effects occur rarely and are also treatable.

You will be advised to apply an ice pack on the first day of the treatment to quicken the healing process. If the treatment has caused bruising it is highly beneficial to apply warm compress on the treatment area during the following days of the procedure, until the bruising subsides. Try to also avoid working out and touching the area for the next 3 – 5 days to prevent migration of the filler until it has fully settled.

What Are the Contraindications for Restylane Injections?

The contraindications for Restylane injections are the following:

  • Anaphylaxis (severe reactions)

  • Bleeding disorders

Am I a Good Candidate for Restylane Injections?

Generally, it can be said that almost everybody is a good candidate for Restylane, if they want to reverse the aging signs and enhance their profile, making it even more attractive. Restylane is known for its moderate and natural looking results, hence you can be sure that there will be no trace of fakeness or feeling of anything being overdone.

The results are expected to last for about 6 – 12 months.
