Men and women look younger with Restylane dermal filler treatment

Once, the only way to reverse signs of aging was facelift surgery, usually performed after wrinkles were firmly established. Today, women and men in the Montclair, NJ area have nonsurgical options to resolve lines, wrinkles, and lax skin, and even delay their formation. Hyaluronic acid fillers play an important role in any rejuvenation or “pre-juvenation” approach, and Restylane treatment is a premier choice.


Restoring skin volume is straightforward with dermal fillers. These products are placed into skin at varying depths to smooth lines, soften wrinkles, fill indentations, and bring lift to the top half of the face.

The primary ingredient in Restylane is hyaluronic acid, a carbohydrate that occurs naturally in the human body, incorporated into a smooth biocompatible gel. The gel instantly supplements facial volume, while the hyaluronic acid binds with water molecule internally, for additional plumping. Meanwhile, introduction of the product stimulates natural collagen production, for long-term skin thickening and tightening. That’s why Restylane results last up to a year.

There are five Restylane products in varying thicknesses, so treatment is carefully tailored to your skin type and your rejuvenation goals. An injection session takes less than an hour, and there is little or no social downtime. You my return to work or other activities right after your appointment.

What is Restylane and how can it be used as a filler? If you looking for a filler to get plumper lips, Restylane is for you. Watch this video as Jeanine B. Downie, M.D. from Image Dermatology® P.C. explains.

What is Restylane?
Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronic acid is something that is found in your elbow, knees, and all your joints.

It is a stabilized form of hyaluronic acid, which is not an animal form of hyaluronic acid.

What are the areas Restylane can be used as a filler?
It was the first hyaluronic acid filler. On the label, it was used on the nasolabial folds. It also works well in the lips and as an under-eye filler.

How long do the results of Restylane last?
Restylane lasts under the eyes for easily ten months or longer. There is a new version called ‘Restylane Kiss’ for the lips, which is FDA approved. It lasts easily for six months.

The duration depends on how much you talk, chew, and eat or laugh. Lip fillers tend to wear off faster than under-eye fillers because you cannot move the area under your eyes.

What are the side effects of Restylane filler?
The main side effects are swelling, bruising, and redness. Those are temporary and tend to go away.

Dr. Jeanine Downie has extensive training and experience in dermal filler treatment. She may recommend Restylane injections for:

  • Apples of cheeks, lifting the mid-face and raising sagging skin below it
  • Hollows under eyes
  • Facial wrinkles, including deep laugh lines
  • Nasolabial folds from each side of the nose to the mouth
  • Marionette lines that extend downward from the mouth
  • Downturned corners of the mouth
  • Lip enhancement – definition and shape as well as augmentation
  • Backs of hands

Actual Patient Results


Minimally-invasive anti-aging treatments make good financial sense compared to the upfront expense of cosmetic surgery plus the downtime associated with recovery. Restylane cost varies, depending on the patient’s unique treatment plan, but Dr. Downie will be happy to provide an estimate during your initial consultation.
