What is Restylane?
Restylane injectable dermal fillers are designed to smooth wrinkles, sculpt lips, and shape facial contours. It is a clear, synthetic gel made with hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found throughout your body, so it carries little risk of allergic reaction. The most common areas for treatment at Suzanne A. Trott, MD, FACS in Beverly Hills, CA are the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of your mouth). With its unique ability to bind with water, double board-certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Suzanne Trott has seen the results of Restylane last up to 18 months in her patients. Each formula of Restylane is designed to correct a specific sign of aging in the face:
- Restylane: used throughout the face to plump lines and wrinkles as well as adding volume to the cheeks and lips.
- Restylane Lyft: adds volume to the cheeks to improve facial contours while also correcting lines and wrinkles.
- Restylane Refyne: specifically designed to soften the nasolabial folds and marionette lines (laugh lines) while maintaining a natural expression.
- Restylane Defyne: using XpresHAn Technology™ to smooth deep laugh lines around the mouth.
- Restylane Silk: adds volume to the lips while smoothing lines in and around the mouth.

"Dr. Trott and her staff are extremely knowledgeable, efficient and a pleasure to know ! - I chose to have elective breast removal and reconstruction because i had a 75% chance of getting breast cancer due to a strong family history. Dr. Trott was referred to me, for the breast reconstruction, by Dr. Kristi Funk, at Pink Lotus Breast Center. Of course i was concerned about how my breasts would look after reconstruction and i couldn't be happier with the result !From our first meeting, Dr Trott put me at ease. She explained the process by drawing it on a board , which made it so easy to understand. I could tell from her knowledge and style i was in good hands. Dr. Trott came to the hospital to check in with me after my first surgery. When i was ready for the implant surgery, i was a bit nervous, but Dr. Trott was so kind and reassuring, she again, put me at ease. After the second surgery, she again came to check up on me in the hospital and was extremely attentive thru the healing process. She wouldn't even leave town while i was recovering ! There are not enough words to express the professionalism, kindness and amazing results i received from Dr. Trott and her amazing staff ! My boyfriend was also extremely happy with the results ! Since then i have only gone to Dr. Trott for all my needs, including botox and fillers. She always makes me look beautiful and its a pleasure visiting her and her staff at her lovely Beverly Hills office !"- T. / RealSelf / Apr 08, 2017

Both men and women can attain softer, natural looking results with Restylane. It is safe to use for any skin type and any ethnicity and works best for patients who have experienced a loss of volume around the mouth, under the eyes, and for those who have "cracks" to fill, such as the deep lines that can develop between the eyebrows. Women who desire to have fuller lips are also good candidates for this filler.
What to Expect
Restylane is administered through an easy and quick injection process. The practitioner will mark the injection sites on the patient’s face using a washable marker, in order to ensure accuracy during the procedure. Using a thin needle, the gel is injected into the designated areas to smooth wrinkles and folds as well as add volume to the face. A numbing ointment may be rubbed around the injection sites to prevent discomfort during treatment. The duration of the treatment is dependent upon how much filler is being injected and where. Typically, treatment last up to an hour and patients leave looking younger and refreshed.
Following treatment, the effects of Restylane can be seen immediately. Lines that once appeared as deep cracks, will appear smooth and soft. For patients receiving a Restylane injection into the lips, the lips will appear swollen for a couple of days, but then will look natural and beautiful. Immediately following the treatment, there may be some swelling and redness that occurs at the injection sites, however this will go away after a few hours. Patients are advised to follow all aftercare instructions to see the best results and they may return to their regular routines immediately. Results are expected to last 6 to 12 months. After that time, patients may return for additional treatment.
