Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Justin Martin provides a wide range of dermal filler products to help correct signs of facial aging, addressing wrinkles, lines, and lost volume. It is a popular brand of injectable wrinkle fillers since it treats several issues with specialized formulas for long-lasting results. Restylane uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A custom dermal filler plan can treat mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the lips and cheeks. Martin Plastic Surgery carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Addresses facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Adds fullness in the lips and fills in vertical lines on the lips
Restylane treatments are suitable for any patient older than 21 years old who wants to improve their overall appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment will be customized to fit your needs. Restylane may help you treat early signs of age, such as fine lines throughout the face, or boost the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve moderate to severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Some treatments contain lidocaine, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Martin to prevent a negative reaction.
"I highly recommend Dr. Martin! He is amazing and his nurses are amazing He exceeded my expectations. 🤩"- S.K. / Facebook / Jan 01, 2022
"I came here about a year ago for a consultation and knew right away that he was the one I wanted to see. I came all the way from Gadsden, Al just to see him and I don’t regret it at all. I had a breast reduction. He was very excellent and thorough he marked me up multiple times before surgery and made sure it was perfect before starting. He was excellent to make sure I was in good hands before sending me all the way home and even helped to get a night stay at the hospital from my insurance. You could tell he cared a lot about his patience health and wanted to make sure that nothing bad happened. He made everything so effortless with worrying about things and now a year later and my scars look amazing. He tried always working his schedule around to see me because I am so far away and answered any questions I had. I could go on but needless to say 10/10 would recommend him!!!"- J. / Google / Nov 19, 2021

Restylane injections are performed in the minor procedure room at Martin Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if requested. The product is injected into your skin with a fine needle, and massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to help control inflammation. Every Restylane product is injected the same way but on different areas treated according to your unique concerns and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane injections are complete, you may resume work. Your recovery will vary based on what you are having treated, so ask your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this usually fades away in a few hours. Bruising may be a factor, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid exercise for 24 hours, and you should sleep with the head propped up for the first night. Many patients will notice visible changes right after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injections often last up to one year based on the formula selected.
Frequently Asked Questions
What does this cost?
Injectable fillers are a great way to turn back the hands of time without spending a fortune. During the consultation, we will assess your skin and address the areas of concern by determining how many units of Restylane are needed to attain the right result. Since each treatment plan is customized for the patient, the number of units will vary by case. The total cost will be determined based on how many areas we are treating and the volume of the filler injected. Fillers are a fraction of the cost of a surgical procedure, which is why so many patients turn to nonsurgical skin rejuvenation first before considering cosmetic surgery.
What is Restylane most commonly used for?
While Restylane is a great filler for lines and wrinkles on the face, it is one of the more popular fillers used in our practice to add volume to the lips so they look fuller. Lip augmentation results using Restylane typically last up to six months and for some patients, the results can last even longer. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive a Restylane injection.
How often do I need to come back for a touch-up?
On average, an injection using a filler such as Restylane can last between six months to a year. This varies by patient. To maintain the results, most patients return between 5 – 9 months for a follow-up injection, which is a safe timeframe to receive another injection. Our office can set you up on a treatment schedule and regimen so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
Does it hurt?
Patients may feel some minor discomfort when receiving an injection using a filler product. Prior to the treatment, we will use a numbing ointment to help decrease any discomfort that one may feel as the injections are taking place. We also use a gentle cold compression to help with swelling and bruising.
Will I look fake?
Injectable fillers, when performed by a trained and skilled injector, offer gorgeous outcomes for patients. The goal is to achieve a result that looks soft and natural. Restylane adds volume to areas that are depleted, fills in lines and diminishes wrinkles, and creates subtle enhancements that make a significant improvement to how our patients look and feel. We pride ourselves on offering expert injections that can take years off a patient's face and add that natural glow they are looking for.
