At Dr. Black Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Elliott Black and Dr. Summer Black, prefer using Restylane as an effective treatment at reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Restylane Lyft, Restylane SILK, as well as all of the Restylane products are Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved to restore missing volume in the facial lines around the mouth and nose, decrease the visibility of the nasolabial folds, and reduce jowls. Made of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), Restylane will improve the hydration of the skin, increase the elasticity, and re-establish sunken in areas of the facial profile. Restylane is known to be a contained filler, which means that it does not spread once it is injected precisely into the exact place in the skin it is intended. Best of all, there is essentially no downtime once the injection is complete. To learn more about Restylane and other facial fillers, call and schedule a consultation with our office at your earliest convenience.
"Wonderful results, Excellent doctor, Friendly staff - I LOVED my experience with Dr. Summer Black. I'm a 41 yr. old African American female and I got Restylane injections to fill in my nasolabial folds and marionette lines (laugh lines). The results look very natural and I am beyond pleased! Dr. Summer Black is so attentive to what your desired results are and she didn't make me feel like she was rushed. Her personality is also very down to..."- V. / RealSelf / May 16, 2017
"I've been a patient of Dr Summer Blacks for about 4 years and I would never go anywhere else. I am ALWAYS ecstatic with her work and have had Botox and Restylane filler in my cheeks and lips. Dr Black is not only a total perfectionist but she becomes a friend you feel comfortable confiding in and sharing your life with. I would recommend Dr Black to my own mother....and in fact I did! Now we are both her patients who regularly visit her for all our anti-aging facial perfecting cosmetic work."- A.R. / Google / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Summer Black is truly amazing. She is caring, experienced, smart and a great doctor. I have had laser, fillers and Botox services by her and was highly pleased with all results. Her staff is equally amazing. A highly trusted older friend recommended me to Dr. Black and I am so glad she did. I now recommend Dr. Summer Black to my good friends with outmost assurance. I can't speak enough of my experience and happiness of finding Dr. Black and her staff."- F. / Google / Apr 09, 2017
Do I Qualify?
Restylane injections are wonderful if you still have great skin elasticity, but want to slow the impact of aging by filling in the fine lines, wrinkles, and gaunt areas on the face. A great candidate for Restylane has the following:
- Moderate fine lines and wrinkles
- Moderate to severe skin folds
- Good overall health
- At least 21 years old
- Good skin elasticity
What to Expect
The results following a Restylane treatment are usually seen right away and last for 12-24 months. Immediately after your Restylane treatment, you may have swelling and redness for a few hours. You may return to your normal activities after treatment, but we advise avoiding vigorous activities for 24 hours. We also encourage you to not put any pressure on the area and to keep your head elevated for optimal healing while any swelling resolves.
A treatment of Restylane usually lasts about 30-50 minutes in our office. During that time, your face will be cleaned and the doctor will mark the injection sites. If you are worried about any soreness or pain during your treatment, a numbing cream can be applied before the injections. Restylane is delivered with an ultra-fine syringe so that the mixture can slowly enter the skin and the doctor can carefully contour the face to meet your goals.
