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.

"Life.Changing.Experience! Trust Him and the Process!! - I had my procedure a year ago in June 2022. I would’ve write a review sooner, but it wouldn’t have been as meaningful. The office itself is beautiful, clean, and pristine. I felt a sense of calm and comfort the moment I opened the door. And that is something you don’t realize you need until your nerves start to strike.The staff is absolutely caring!! Any time you call or have a question, you speak to them directly; never a voicemail or automation. They remember you by name and build a bond with you immediately. I never felt, and still do not feel, like a generic patient when I see them. After my procedure, I called and Dr. Martin himself answered and spoke to me directly. How often does that happen?!. On my first consult, Dr. Martin listened to my concerns and then provided his professional opinions and feedback. Trust him and the process! He knows what he is doing and he is a perfectionist. When it comes to your body, you do not want anything less than that.I have read that his “bedside manner is lacking”. If you truly feel that way, then you did not do as instructed or had unrealistic expectations (that he will warn you about). He comes off a bit quiet and serious, at first, but I took it as him being thorough and that what needed to be done was not something to be taken lightly. The more time spent prior to my actual procedure and the follow-ups after, he became more talkative. His professionalism should be appreciated. He respects his patients fully and they respect him as well. This past year I have watched my body change just as Dr. Martin told me it would. It looks PERFECT! Everything he said to look out for and do, I have. I said it before and I’ll say it again… Trust Him and the Process!! Dr. Martin did more for me than just a surgical procedure… He gave me back something that I didn’t think I’d ever see again… ME! If you are scared or worried or whatever the case may be about having a procedure done, Stop! It is not what you have to lose, but what you have to gain. I would do it a hundred times over and all the exact same way. Thank you Dr. Martin, and all the beautiful ladies in the office, for taking care of me the way that you have. I will never forget it!!!"- V. / RealSelf / Jun 05, 2023
"Dr. Martin and his staff are just extraordinary. I appreciated how they listened to my concerns. I did weeks of research trying to find a great plastic surgeon and after my first appointment at Martin plastic surgery I knew I made the right decision. After surgery, I felt confident that I would be very pleased with my results. I feel that Dr. Martin is very caring about his patients. Being an hour and a half from the office, I was still able to voice concerns and have help with concerns. I couldn’t be happier with my reduction results. Dr. Martin is very great at what he does, even while being prepped for surgery the nurses all assured me I’d be very happy with my results. Great experience!"- C.W. / Google / Apr 15, 2023
"Dr. Martin and his staff are absolutely incredible! The office staff are very friendly, and they remember who you are (which goes such a long way with me). Dr. Martin himself, is very honest and takes the time to explain procedures and why he may suggest something different. I got the tummy tuck, lipo to flanks and breast augmentation, all of it had turned out so well (I’m only 2 weeks post op), and so far it has been a great journey. I could not recommend Dr. Martin or his office enough! You won’t be disappointed!"- A.D. / Google / Dec 02, 2022

He did a fantastic job with my surgical needs and I could not be more proud of my results!"- A.E. / Facebook / Oct 19, 2022
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.
