What is Restylane?

The Restylane Collection is a family of hyaluronic-acid-based dermal fillers. Restylane fillers produce an instant increase in volume as well as stimulate collagen production within the skin. This boost in collagen production allows for sustained improvement in the skin’s condition for months following treatment. Restylane is most commonly used to enhance the lips, add or restore volume to the cheeks, diminish under-eye bags, smooth wrinkles throughout the face, and restore moisture and volume to the backs of the hands and feet.

How does Restylane work?

Restylane is a collection of dermal filler formulas which are used to treat a variety of conditions associated with aging in the face, hands, and feet. These hyaluronic-acid-based formulas are deliberately designed with specific areas of the face in mind to achieve the most beautiful and natural-looking results.

Differences in particle size allow each formula to deliver the proper level of firmness to fuller areas (like the cheeks), as well as more delicate areas (such as the area underneath the eyes). The versatility of Restylane fillers allows them to be applied to each area as part of an overall aesthetic plan for your revitalization.

Restylane Collection Benefits

This trusted line of dermal fillers can be used to treat signs of aging in all areas of the face, as well as certain areas of the body. Restylane is more convenient, less expensive, and far less invasive than surgical treatments, and recovery is minimal in comparison to many chemical peels and laser treatments. Results are long-lasting and natural-looking, as volume is enhanced instantly and skin condition is continuously improved over several months. Restylane is a low-risk solution to the loss of volume, fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, and dullness. You can count on Restylane and Tri Valley Plastic Surgery to give you beautiful dermal filler results.

What to Expect During Your Restylane Procedure

When you arrive at Tri Valley Plastic Surgery for your Restylane Oakland specialists at Tri Valley will cleanse your skin and a topical numbing medication will be applied. The appropriate Restylane solution or solutions will be injected into the treatment area or areas using a fine gauge needle. The entire process typically takes approximately 20 minutes and there is no downtime following treatment.


There is no downtime following Restylane treatment, and patients can return to their regular activities immediately. It is important that the patient does not rub or massage the treatment area for 12 hours, or lie down for the first 4 hours following treatment.


While Restylane offers an immediate increase in volume to treatment areas, full results take approximately 2 weeks to appear as it takes time for the solution to settle. Due to the boost in collagen production, patients can expect a gradual appearance in their skin appearance for several months following treatment. Results from Restylane generally last 6 to 12 months depending on the area treated, the Restylane formula used, and the rate at which the body absorbs the solution. Results are best maintained with proper skincare and regular follow-up treatments.
