Restylane® is a family of injectable gel treatments made with hyaluronic acid. Called dermal fillers, these injectables are one of the best ways to restore volume and enhance features without surgery or downtime. There are many different formulations of Restylane® available, so your dermatologist can help you select the right one for your goals and specific treatment areas.
Restylane® works by attracting moisture to the skin when it’s injected. This causes the area to expand and provides better support to the skin and fills in areas of low volume. Restylane® treatments are very popular for their natural and long-lasting results, making them a great way to boost your confidence.

Restylane® is an alternative to Juvéderm®, another family of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. There are benefits to each, and they can easily be combined with other treatments like BOTOX®, chemical peels, or IPL, so your board-certified dermatologist can help you determine the right treatment plan for you during your consultation.
Restylane® treatment is very quick and easy. Most patients don’t require a topical anesthetic during injection – Restylane® injections are also formulated with lidocaine, a numbing agent. Once the area is cleansed, the product is placed under the skin with a very fine needle. You’ll see instant results with Restylane®, so you and your injector can fine-tune your results before you leave.

“I was so reluctant to ever try Botox but Ashley made it more than I ever expected. My migraines and my forehead wrinkles are improved and I may or may not look 5 years younger! Best bedside manners and such amazing staff! Great experience!"
“Friendly and very helpful staff. Dr. Hamblin is personable and informative. He spends the necessary time to go over all your questions."
“Dylan at Hamblin Dermatology was great! My first visit here was just for a skin check. He took his time for addressing my concerns and educating me and office staff were welcoming, helpful, and pleasant. Definitely a 5-star experience and recommendation."
There’s no downtime required after Restylane®, although it’s best to avoid exercise, sweating, and hot temperatures for the first 24 hours. It can be helpful to massage the area to help the product settle, as well as use an ice pack for any discomfort. You can expect some redness and swelling for the first few hours after your appointment, but this subsides quickly. Make sure to wear SPF 30+ to protect against sun damage while your skin recovers.
It can take one to two weeks for your final results to settle in after Restylane® treatment, so make sure to give yourself time before returning for touch-ups (if needed). Depending on your unique Restylane formulation, you can expect your results to last for one to two years.
Restylane® is a great way to improve your confidence and enjoy a more youthful look. To learn more, meet with our expert injectors by contacting Sunrise Dermatology. We invite you to call our offices or fill out our online contact form.
