Restylane®

Print This PageEmail this Page

Restylane is part of a new generation of what are known as filler products. These substances are used for correcting facial lines and folds, plumping and reshaping the lips, and softening lower eyelid bags. Unlike many similar products previously found in the marketplace, Restylane is composed of hyaluronic acid, a substance that exists naturally in the body. This makes it safe and completely biodegradable. Dr. Edward J. Gross achieves exceptionally long-lasting results with Restylane treatments for his Orlando patients.

If you are interested in Restylane treatments with Dr. Gross, request a consultation today, or call our office at (407) 333-3040.

Proven Techniques, Outstanding Results

When you look in the mirror, you see the progressive effects of facial aging: sagging, wrinkles, and the loss of skin elasticity. Restylane reduces the signs of facial aging by correcting:

  • Forehead creases
  • Frown lines
  • Crow's-feet
  • Smile lines
  • Lip lines
  • Marionette lines (the lines framing your mouth)
  • Changes to the color and texture of the skin
  • Volume loss

Restylane With a Facial Plastic Surgery Specialist

Request a Consultation Dr. Gross bases his Restylane treatments on his understanding of facial aging and collagen loss. Facial aging results from both internal and external factors. Internal, or chronological, factors occur over time and are caused by genetics and the natural aging process. External, or environmental, factors include sun exposure, smoking, pollution, gravity, facial expressions, and sleep position. All of these factors can contribute to changes in the skin, as well as changes in facial bones.

Aging and environmental damage diminish the body's production of collagen. A fibrous protein in the dermis, collagen gives natural structure to the skin. It also helps the skin retain both hyaluronic acid and elastin, an elastic protein that helps your skin maintain its shape. Collagen loss and damage to support structures beneath the skin reduce the skin's ability to maintain elasticity and retain moisture.

Dr. Gross injects Restylane directly into the skin in tiny amounts with an ultra-fine needle. The hyaluronic acid contained in Restylane cushions and lubricates to keep the skin moist. It also stimulates the production of collagen to add volume and elasticity. Dr. Gross sometimes uses a topical anesthetic when injecting fillers into facial lines and folds. When using Restylane to enhance the lips, he administers a local anesthetic similar to that used by a dentist. We also offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) to reduce discomfort during this treatment. Nitrous oxide is a safe, short-acting analgesic similar to that used in sedation dentistry and preferred by many patients.

Many of our Orlando patients combine Restylane with other fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and wrinkle reducers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic for optimal rejuvenation.

Restylane Treatment Cost

At our Orlando area practice, the cost for Restylane is $595 for a 1 cc syringe and $975 for 2 cc. Restylane® Silk for the lips costs $645 per syringe. The total Restylane treatment cost varies with patient needs and desired results. During your consultation, Dr. Gross will give you a quote that reflects your specific needs and desired improvements.

A Smooth Recovery

Some Restylane patients experience temporary, mild swelling and redness at the treatments sites. Restylane requires no downtime. Results often last 6 to 9 months.

"Facial aging usually begins in your 20s, when the firmness of your skin begins to decrease. Wrinkles, blemishes, and sunspots may also start to appear, becoming more pronounced with age. Of course, changes vary from person to person."
