What is Restylane?
Dr. Adam Bodian offers a wide range of dermal filler products to help correct aging in the face, addressing wrinkles, lines, and lost volume. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable dermal fillers because it treats many issues with specialized formulas for results that last. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer appearance that is more supple and full. A personal dermal filler plan can correct mild, moderate, or severe facial lines and wrinkles, and also add volume to the lips and mid-face. Bodian Dermatology carries several Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane: Fills in facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Corrects deep smile and laugh wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates volume and lift in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects light to moderate smile and laugh wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Adds fullness in the lips and corrects vertical lines on the lips
We invite you to schedule an appointment for Restylane injections at our Great Neck, NY facility.
Is Restylane for Me?
Restylane injectable treatments are great for any person older than 21 years old who is looking to rejuvenate their appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be customized to fit your needs and concerns. Restylane can help you address early signs of aging, such as fine facial lines, or increase the volume in your cheeks and lips. It can also improve moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Some formulas are mixed with the anesthetic lidocaine so you need to share any known allergies at your consultation with Dr. Bodian to prevent a negative reaction.
"I could not speak more highly about the entire staff at this practice. Mary has been amazing with clearing up my skin. Myriam gives the most wonderful facials and truly cares about her clients. The entire staff is very personable, kind, and caring. I am so glad I was recommended this practice as I have found with other derms I have gone to in the past that they do not care as much as this wonderful staff."- N.B. / Yelp / May 12, 2023

Our Injection Technique
Restylane dermal injections are performed in the treatment room at Bodian Dermatology. A numbing cream can be applied for increased comfort if requested. The product is injected into your skin through a fine-gauge needle and gently massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to reduce swelling. Each Restylane product is injected the same way but on different areas of the face targeted according to your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect After Injections
Once your Restylane procedure is done, you may resume your day. Your recovery period will depend on what you are having treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this typically fades away within a day. Bruising may appear, but this can usually be concealed with cosmetics. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for a day, and you should sleep upright for the first night. Many patients will experience some improvements right after treatment, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments generally last up to one year based on the formula used.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
The Restylane family of dermal fillers are each designed to make you appear rejuvenated but still natural. During your initial consultation, your injector will talk about the various Restylane formulas and which fits your goals. Restylane Lyft, Defyne, and Refyne improve mild to deep lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane Lyft and Silk increase volume in your hands, cheeks, and lips.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
Typically, Restylane injections last from 6 – 18 months. These will vary depending on which formula is selected, the injection sites, and other factors. In your consultation, your injector will create your treatment plan, which will include how often you should make your next appointment to refresh your appearance.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
There may be some minor discomfort when receiving an injection using a filler product. Prior to your treatment, we can apply a numbing ointment to help decrease any discomfort that you may feel during the injections. After the injections, a cold compress will be applied to minimize bruising and swelling.
