What is Restylane?
Restylane is a popular brand of dermal filler injections that treat many concern areas in the face using a specialized formula for long-lasting results. Using a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), Restylane gives the skin a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A unique dermal filler plan can correct mild to severe facial wrinkles and lines and add fullness to the cheeks and lips. Skin Center Boston carries several Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane Defyne: Smooths moderate to severe laugh and smile lines
- Restylane Lyft: Lifts and adds volume in the cheeks
- Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate laugh lines and smile wrinkles
Who Can Get Restylane?
For those over 21 looking to improve their overall appearance, Restylane is a great option. Since it has so many formulas, each procedure will be customized to suit patient needs, concerns, and goals. Restylane can address visible signs of age, including fine facial lines, or pump up the cheeks and lips. Those with severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, and more, may see a significant benefit from Restylane. Many Restylane treatments are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so it's important to share any known allergies with Dr. Doktor to avoid a negative reaction.

How Does Restylane Work?
Restylane injections are performed inside our Boston, MA office at Skin Center Boston. A numbing cream can be put on the treatment areas for increased comfort if requested. The treatment is injected into the skin through a fine-gauge needle. From there, it is massaged through the skin so it reaches the needed areas. Multiple injections may be performed to get the desired results. Once the injections are complete, they will be followed by a cold compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane filler is injected with the same technique but on different areas of the face to fit the unique needs and cosmetic goals of that area.
What Happens After Restylane Treatments?
Once the Restylane injections have been completed, patients may return to their normal day. Recovery will depend on what is being treated so Dr. Doktor will provide specific instructions to each patient. The treated areas will appear slightly red and swollen, but this typically fades away within a day. Patients may experience some bruising, but this can usually be camouflaged with makeup, and redness and swelling should not last long. Exercise should be avoided for a day, and patients should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after the procedure, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks until the final results appear. Restylane injection treatments typically last about a year based on the exact product selected.
"Went in for a consultation on a keloid I wanted removed and I was able to get it removed the same day! I had a couple of follow ups and the area has healed perfectly. Great space and service"- A.T. / Google / Oct 15, 2021
"Dr. Doktor and staff were so welcoming! The overall quality of care and attentiveness made my experience the best I've had with a dermatology office.

"I was looking for a Dermatologist to do my first filling (botox), I was nervous as I wanted to keep a natural look, keep my expression while smiling but getting ready of the annoying wrinkles! One friend recommended me Dr. Vlada. She was so kind and patient with me! As she saw that I was apprehensive because it was my first time she did the treatment in two steps with a break of two weeks, so we could see better how the muscle reacted and retouch if needed. That gave me another level of comfort and trust! And loved the results!! Doctors for me shouldn’t be just professionals on what they do, they should also hear the concerns and wishes of the patients and adapt to that! If you are like me, you are in good hands with Dr. Vlada!"- A.D. / Google / Jan 21, 2021
"I was very hesitant about scheduling an appointment at first because I don't particular like when someone touches my face, never mind doing any type of procedures. After reading multiple reviews I've decided to come and see Dr. Doktor. She took her time to listen to my concerns and explained how, why and provided multiple solutions. Dr. Doktor is very pleasant, compassionate and considerate. Skin Center location is very welcoming and charming place. My entire experience was very pleasant. I am looking forward to my future visits."- E.C. / Google / Jan 14, 2021
