About Restylane

Restylane is a Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved injectable filler that is composed of hyaluronic acid (HA), a substance that is naturally made in the body and is gradually absorbed in injection form. Restylane comes in a number of variations, and each one is able to uniquely incorporate into the skin to add volume, hydration, and smoothness. Our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Robert Chiu, administers Restylane injections for his Pittsburgh, PA patients who are looking for rejuvenated and more youthful skin in a noninvasive way. Restylane is commonly used around the nasolabial folds, the eyes, and even the lips to add needed volume and restoration to the skin. If patients are interested in learning more, they can schedule a consult at Today's Cosmetic Surgery.

Restylane Variations

Dr. Chiu at Today's Cosmetic Surgery is delighted to offer his Pittsburgh, PA patients all variations of the popular, FDA-approved wrinkle filler Restylane. Each variation is a powerful injectable designed to address specific cosmetic issues in patients in order to promote the most stunning results. Patients can discuss which variation would be the best option for them during a personalized consultation. We offer the following filler products:

  • Restylane Silk:
    Restylane Silk is a filler that is injected into the lips and around the mouth to even out the skin and create more fullness in the lips.
  • Restylane Lyft:
    Restylane Lift treats the smile lines that form around the mouth. It can also augment the cheeks for added facial volume.
  • Restylane Defyne:
    Restylane Defyne uses both cross-linking and XpresHAn Technology™ to replenish some of the youthfulness in the facial skin. Defyne brings forth remarkable results in addressing deep dynamic wrinkles on the face. 
  • Restylane Refyne:
    Restylane Refyne is one of the newest wrinkle reduction treatments on the market, and it is able to soften entrenched marionette lines and nasolabial folds in the facial skin.

What to Expect

Restylane is administered as an in-office procedure and a numbing agent is already mixed in the formulation. Dr. Chiu will determine the amount of filler syringes that you will need. Restylane will be administered with a fine needle to fill in the lips or the folds between the nose and mouth. The treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes to complete. There is no downtime after an injection--minor bruising can be usually covered with makeup.

Anticipated Results

After a Restylane treatment, patients may experience a temporary swelling, soreness and/or redness. Effects are immediate and can be quite long-lasting. For lip augmentation, the results can last around 6-12 months. When used to treat facial lines, wrinkles, and folds, Restylane can last up to 1 year.
