Featuring a hyaluronic acid base, Restylane is approved for smoothing facial creases and adding volume to the lips. Lip treatments usually last around 6 months, while wrinkle treatments can last up to 12 months for some patient.
In addition to lip plumping, Restylane can be used in the following areas:
Laugh Lines – extend from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth
Marionette Lines – run from the corners of the mouth to the jawline
Lipstick Lines – vertical lines that appear just above the upper lip
Tear Trough Area – where those dark tired circles start to crop up
"Dr. Jeffrey Olson is the best there is. I’ve been to a lot of there types of Doctors and Dr. Olson really stands out. He is a gifted magician of a doctor, and he never goes overboard. He also gives about the most gentle shot I’ve ever had, and I have a horrific phobia of needles. His office is low key, relaxed and lovely. And he is a calming force of nature. I recommend him to all my friends and my wife is also a patient of his, and loves him as well."- M.D. / Yelp / Mar 14, 2019
"What can I say.. Dr. Olson was amazing, this is not the first time I have had injections.. I have tried other establishments both here and In NYC. As soon as you walk in the door you he makes you feel welcomed. He explains the entire procedure with mirror in hand. Dr. Olson is so knowledgeable and his bedside manner is easing, and I had zero pain after the procedure. My concern was to be ensured it looked natural. I highly recommend JPO Aesthetics and Dr. Olson, you will not be disappointed. Thank you Dr. Olson...By the way love your billboard.."- T.L. / Google / Jul 02, 2021
"Jeffrey took the time to explain really well the product and its effects. I find him really professional. He even contacted me two weeks after to find out if I was satisfied with the results and offered to make touch up if needed. I truly recommend him."- M.G. / Google / Jul 02, 2021
"Dr. Jeff was welcoming and comforting. I was nervous as this was my fist time!! He made me feel welcome and better about myself. Really pointing out my positives and improving on the spots that could use some love! Dr. Jeff has a true artistic talent improving what we are blessed with. And not over doing it! I looked easily 10 years younger, and felt even better than that! And when I was home and had a question he contacted me directly. No answering service, let us get back to you! He was caring, attentive, and so wonderful! And GORGEOUS!! Just a really wonderful experience!! C.B."- C. / Google / Jun 17, 2021
"Had the best experience w/ Dr. Olson at JPO Aesthetics. I had a lot of questions about wrinkle relaxers like Botox for heavy lines in my forehead. For my first time experience I was nervous about pain but it was quick and simple! Actually kinda like it. Will be back in 3-4 months."- C.A. / Google / Oct 30, 2020
What To Expect With Restylane
When your Restylane procedure is complete, you may return to work. Your recovery period will vary based on what is being treated, so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites may appear slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may be a factor, but this may be concealed with makeup. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for at least one night. Most patients will experience visible improvements immediately after the procedure, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments often last around a year based on the exact product selected.
Frequently Asked Questions
What Are the Advantages of Restylane?
Restylane is a softer product compared to other HA’s, including Perlane. As such, it can have an advantage in tricky areas with lots of movement such as under eyes and the lips. This allows the practitioner to possibly better monitor swelling as all HA’s attract water.
To get the most out of your Restylane injections, a treatment plan of follow-up injections is needed. For most facial enhancements, having subsequent injections every 4 to 9 months is highly recommended.
