Ponte Vedra Beach, FL plastic surgeon Dr. Roberto Garcia provides a wide range of dermal filler injections to help correct signs of aging, addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable dermal fillers since it treats many issues with specialized formulas for results that last. It 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 personal dermal filler plan can correct mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the cheeks and lips. Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery carries many Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane: Corrects facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Silk: Creates fullness in the lips and corrects vertical lines on the lips
Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your needs and concerns. Restylane may help you address initial signs of age, such as fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, Marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain treatments have the anesthetic lidocaine so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Garcia to prevent a negative reaction.

"It was better than I could have imagined. I healed somewhat quickly, little pain which lasted only a short time. Dr. Garcia is a magician, a plastic surgeon Houdini. He is kind and personable and listens to you. I would recommend him to all who would ask."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 15, 2019
"It’s been one month since my surgery and the results are remarkable. I look at least years younger and totally natural. There was no pain in recovery only discomfort from the swelling. I was given instructions to follow for two weeks prior to surgery and for two weeks after surgery. Honestly, the most annoying part was having to wash my hair twice a day for the first week. Dr. Garcia and Erin were only a phone call away whenever I had any questions. My initial consultation and all of my visits were on time, informative and I never felt rushed or pressured. I am so impressed with Dr. Garcia’s work and knowledge. I never had surgery before and was a little apprehensive but confident that I would be in good hands under his care and I am so fortunate to have found him."- M.G. / Google / Nov 14, 2019
Restylane treatments are performed in the comfort of our minor procedures room at Contoura Facial Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream may be applied to the treatment areas for greater comfort if desired. The filler is injected in your skin with a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed, followed by a cold compress to reduce inflammation. Every Restylane filler is injected with the same technique but on different areas treated based on your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery period 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 typically fades away within a day. Bruising may occur, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments typically last around one year based on the formula selected.
