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 and Eileen, his experienced certified physician assistant, achieve exceptionally long-lasting results with Restylane treatments in the Orlando area.

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:
Eileen is a certified physician assistant who has been practicing since 2011. She specializes in performing injectable and laser skin treatments, and creating personalized skin care regimens.
Dr. Gross and Eileen base their Restylane treatments on an 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.
At Primera, Restylane is injected 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. While the Restylane we use contains anesthetic lidocaine, we sometimes use a highly effective topical anesthetic called BLT when injecting fillers into facial lines and folds. When using Restylane to enhance the lips, we administer a local anesthetic similar to that used by a dentist.
Many of our Orlando patients combine Restylane with other fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and wrinkle reducers such as BOTOX® Cosmetic for optimal rejuvenation.
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, you will receive a quote that reflects your specific needs and desired improvements.
Some Restylane patients experience temporary, mild swelling and redness at the treatments sites. This treatment requires no downtime. While experiences vary, 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."
