Restylane Contour

Restylane Contour is the New Injectable Filler

Cosmetic injectables, like Botox and hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, have transformed the approach that many patients take to their facial rejuvenation treatment. Plastic surgery use to be the only option for achieving a more youthful appearance. Now, with dermal fillers, Dr. Michele Green in NYC is able to provide her patients with a non-invasive treatment option that produces immediate results and doesn’t require any downtime. Galderma’s newest addition to the Restylane family of dermal fillers, fda-approved in June 2021, Restylane Contour, is specially designed for injection into the midface. Restylane Contour is manufactured with Galderma’s proprietary xPreshan technology. The xPreshan technology produces a unique hyaluronic acid filler texture that is firm enough to provide support and volume while remaining flexible enough to move dynamically with every facial expression.

As we age, hyaluronic acid and collagen in the skin are naturally depleted. These components of the skin give it a firm and supple texture as well as a youthful, refreshed appearance. Hyaluronic acid dermal filler injections are able to replenish lost volume, stimulate new collagen production, and enhance facial contour. Often, one of the first areas to show signs of aging or lack of contour is the mid face and cheekbones. Full, contoured, voluminous cheeks have long been associated with beauty, health, and youthfulness. The cheeks are also an essential facial feature in regards to being expressive. Due to its ability to smoothly integrate in skin, Restylane Contour is an ideal dermal filler product for not only volumizing the cheeks, but also for dynamic facial contour and expressive movement.

Dr. Michele Green was one of the first dermatologists in New York City to incorporate Restylane® dermal fillers into the customized treatment plans of her patients looking to achieve a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Dr. Green embraces a “less is more” philosophy when it comes to cosmetic injections and always designs the treatment plans of her patients to deliver a refreshed and natural look. A leader in the field of cosmetic dermatology, with over 25 years of experience providing the best non-invasive cosmetic treatment options, Dr. Green’s dedication to her patients and her expertise is well-reflected by the fact that she is consistently voted as one of the best dermatologists in New York by Castle Connolly, Super Doctors, and New York Magazine. If you’re looking for a natural-looking solution to facial volume loss, lack of contour, or fine lines and wrinkles, Dr. Green is here to help.

What is Restylane Contour?

Restylane Contour is the newest addition to the Restylane family of dermal filler products, designed specifically for injection into the mid face. Restylane was approved by the FDA in June of 2021, although the dermal filler has been used for several years in the United Kingdom and is known there as Restylane Volyme. Galderma, a trusted leader in skincare, manufactures Restylane Contour using their xPreshan technology. The process of creating the dermal filler with xPreshan technology produces a hyaluronic acid filler that is firm enough to replenish lost facial volume, yet flexible enough to move easily with facial expressions. The result of having cheek augmentation with Restylane Contour injections is improved skin elasticity, enhanced facial contour and more prominent cheekbones, and restored facial volume for a more youthful, beautiful appearance and natural look.

What is Restylane contour used for?

Restylane contour is used for contouring the mid face, enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones, and replenishing volume to the cheeks. Restylane contour is ideal for injection into this area due to its flexibility, smooth integration into skin, and a texture that is firm enough to provide support and replenish volume. Dermal filler injections with Restylane Contour are an excellent option for patients who are experiencing lack of volume or contour in the midface. Restylane Contour can also be used as a temporary treatment for patients who are considering having a more permanent cheek augmentation procedure, such as a face lift, cheek implants, or fat grafting, but who are not quite ready to undergo an invasive procedure that requires significantly more downtime than fillers. When you consult with Dr. Green, you will be able to discuss with her in-depth regarding all of your specific skin concerns and the personal aesthetic goals that you have. Dr. Green is an internationally renowned board certified cosmetic dermatologist, recognized around the world for her artful approach to facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers.

What is Restylane contour made of?

Restylane Contour is a dermal filler product that is composed of a cross linked hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the skin that provides moisture, support, and suppleness. Hyaluronic acid is a strong ingredient for anti-aging purposes and when HA filler is injected into a treatment area, new collagen production is stimulated. Collagen in the skin provides a firmness and tightness that diminishes naturally with age. Restylane Contour in particular is manufactured with a special xPreshan technology that gives it a unique texture and allows it to supply volume to correct midface deficiencies, but remain flexible enough to move smoothly with natural facial expressions. Cosmetic injections with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers provide semi-permanent results, and clinical trials of Restylane Contour have shown that the cosmetic effects last for up to a year on average. Dr. Green utilizes an array of hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in her private dermatology office in NYC and each offers its own host of skin benefits, allowing for complete customization of facial rejuvenation plans for each treatment.

How does Restylane Contour work? 

Restylane Contour is a dermal filler that is composed of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally-occurring substance in the body that plays a pivotal role in stimulating collagen production and maintaining the youthful appearance of the skin. The amount of hyaluronic acid that’s naturally produced decreases with age. Hyaluronic acid fillers make it possible to target areas that need a boost in volume, smooth out fine lines, wrinkles and folds, and plump the skin to restore suppleness. Restylane Contour delivers these anti-aging effects through smooth integration into the skin and stimulation of new collagen production. Restylane Contour is unique in that it is manufactured in a way that when injected, the filler not only provides volume, but does so in a way that offers flexible integration into skin for dynamic and natural-looking movement with any facial expression.

The Popularity of Cheek Fillers

Before the advent of cosmetic dermal fillers, patients looking for facial rejuvenation options relied heavily on plastic surgery to achieve a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers transformed the classic approach to facial rejuvenation, allowing patients to forgo invasive plastic surgery and the extensive downtime that typically accompanies it. Cheek augmentation with dermal fillers has quickly become one of the most popular cosmetic procedures among patients looking for a quick anti-aging solution with long-lasting, natural looking results. Dr. Green has over 25 years providing the best cosmetic injections for some of the most discerning men and women from around the globe. Below are some of her favorite dermal filler products for injecting the mid face area.

Juvederm Voluma is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is considered an ideal injectable product for adding volume to the cheeks and the chin, restoring lost facial volume and enhancing facial contour. Juvederm Voluma became FDA approved in 2013 and is manufactured by Allergan, the makers of Botox, using Vycross technology. Dr. Green in New York City is an Allergan Platinum Injector and one of the first dermatologists in New York to incorporate Juvederm dermal filler products into the cosmetic treatment plans of her patients.

Restylane Lyft is another variety of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has a relatively large particle size, allowing it to provide a significant lifting effect in areas of the face that need additional support, such as the midface. Restylane Lyft was approved by the FDA in 2015 and has since been widely used for replenishing volume and restoring the appearance of the midface, nasolabial folds, smile lines, and jowls.

Restylane Contour was FDA-approved for use in 2021 and is a hyaluronic acid gel filler designed for correcting lost volume and elasticity in the midface. Full, voluminous cheeks are often the foundation of a youthful appearance, and tend to lose volume over time, contributing to aging the face. Restylane Contour is made in a specific way using xPreshan technology, allowing it to be used to restore a youthful appearance while allowing for lively and natural facial expression. The hyaluronic acid dermal filler is injected into areas of collagen loss to provide volume, smooth out the appearance of fine lines, and enhance facial contour.

Can Restylane Contour be used under the eyes?

Restylane Contour is a specially manufactured hyaluronic acid dermal filler, designed specifically for injection into the midface. Restylane contour Restylane contour is designed for injection into the midface and cheek area and has been approved for use in this treatment area by the FDA. The xPreshan technology of Restylane Contour is particularly well suited for the mid face, providing a firm enough texture to enhance volume while being flexible enough to move with dynamic facial expressions. The under eye area is a particularly delicate treatment area and it is recommended that a hyaluronic acid filler such as Belotero or Restylane-L is injected here for best results. Belotero and Restylane-L are fillers with a relatively small particle size, making them both a great choice for the sensitive under eye area. By using one of these choices, it is possible to prevent the Tyndall effect. The Tyndall effect is a side effect that refers to a bluish tint that develops under the eyes due to having cosmetic injections that are placed too superficially, are over-injected, or with too thick of a viscosity. If you are bothered by tear troughs or under eye wrinkles, Dr. Green can recommend a dermal filler product best suited to your concerns.

How is Restylane Contour injected?

The first step in having dermal filler injections with Restylane Contour is consulting with Dr. Michele Green in her private dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan. During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to learn more about facial rejuvenation with dermal fillers while discussing with Dr. Green your specific skin concerns and personal aesthetic goals. Cheek filler is typically injected with a needle or cannula for best cosmetic results. Restylane Contour should always be injected by a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist, like Dr. Green. Having treatment with a healthcare professional in a medical setting ensures that your treatment is both safe and satisfactory, preventing the occurrence of unwanted side effects while delivering optimal cosmetic results. Before having any cosmetic injections, Dr. Green recommends ceasing the use of any blood thinning medications, including Advil, aspirin, and Ibuprofen, as these may increase the likelihood of bruising and swelling.

Who is a good candidate for Restylane Contour treatment?

A good candidate for cheek contour treatment with Restylane Contour injections is an individual that is at least 21 years of age, in good overall health, and has realistic expectations for the outcome of their dermal filler injections. Patients from their mid 20s to late 70s alike enjoy the benefits of facial rejuvenation treatment with Restylane Contour filler injections with Dr. Green.

How long does Restylane Contour last?

Dermal filler injections are a semi-permanent cosmetic treatment that typically last between six and twelve months. Clinical studies have shown that the effects of Restylane contour last for up to one year. In order to maintain the best cosmetic results, many patients choose to have a maintenance session of their filler treatment twice a year. The longevity of dermal filler injections can be impacted by the treatment area, the total amount of filer that was injected, the viscosity of each filler used for treatment, and individual metabolism of the patient. Having regular maintenance treatment sessions with Dr. Green are useful for maintaining the best cosmetic results.

The process of getting Cheek Fillers with a natural look

Prior to having any cosmetic treatment, including natural-looking cheek augmentation with dermal fillers, you will need to have a consultation with Dr. Green. During your consultation, you will discuss with Dr. Green in-depth regarding your medical history, any history related to previous cosmetic procedures (including any cosmetic injections), and the kind of results that you would like to achieve from treatment. Photos are always taken of the treatment area, in order to enhance the discussion during the consultation with Dr. Green, and are included in your medical chart to track your treatment progress.

Together with Dr. Green, you will establish a treatment plan and a timeline that caters to your skin concerns and cosmetic goals. At the end of the consultation, the total cost of your cheek augmentation treatment will be discussed. Once it has been determined which procedures will be performed to deliver your results, you may have treatment on the day of your consultation or schedule treatment for a later date, depending on preference and time allowance. The fillers that Dr. Green recommends for your cheek augmentation treatment will be determined by your facial structure and your specific skin concerns. Dr. Green is an expert when it comes to cosmetic injectables and with her “less is more” philosophy, she will choose the dermal filler products with the unique qualities that are most appropriate for your treatment that will provide you with the most stunning, natural-looking, long-lasting results.

On the day of your cosmetic injections for cheek augmentation, you will apply a topical numbing cream to the entire treatment area one hour in advance of your appointment. This step ensures that throughout the duration of the procedure that there is minimal discomfort experienced. Once you arrive at Dr. Green’s private office in the Upper East Side neighborhood of New York City, the numbing cream will be removed and skin sterilized before the injections take place. Dr. Green will then perform your cheek augmentation procedure using the dermal fillers selected during your consultation.

Immediately upon completion of the procedure, ice packs are applied to the treatment area in order to help minimize swelling at the injection sites. It is expected that there may be some mild swelling that resolves on its own within one to two weeks of treatment. Patients should refrain from exertional exercise for at least 48 hours following cheek filler treatment, as this could exacerbate any potential swelling effects. Some patients may experience mild bruising at or near the injection sites, too. For patients who are prone to bruising or who experience bruising after the treatment, an oral herbal supplement called Arnika Forte is available. Arnika Forte can also be taken for several days before your injections to help prevent bruising.

What are the side effects of Restylane Contour?

Common side effects of cosmetic injections may include a mild amount of bruising, swelling, tenderness, and redness at injection sites. Arnika is an herbal supplement that can be used several days in anticipation of dermal filler treatment to prevent and treat bruising.

Rare but serious side effects include allergic reactions, keloid scarring, outbreak of herpes simplex virus, and superficial necrosis at the site of the injection. Unintentional injection of dermal filler into a blood vessel can cause serious complications, including blindness. The safety of Restylane injections while pregnant or breastfeeding has not been established and should be avoided. If you experience any perceived allergic reaction, it is best to immediately contact your treating physician.

Severe allergies to Restylane are uncommon. However, if you have a history of severe allergic reaction, a history of anaphylaxis, or are allergic to either lidocaine or gram-positive bacterial proteins, it is suggested to avoid Restylane injections. If you have a history of scarring or are taking medications that can cause prolonged bleeding, ensure that you review your entire medical history with Dr. Green before considering any cosmetic dermal filler injections.

How long does it take for restylane contour to settle in the lips?

When a hyaluronic acid dermal filler product is used to augment the lips, it usually takes several days for the filler to completely settle, and one to two weeks for the final cosmetic results to be observed. Restylane contour is an ideal filler option for use in the midface, replenishing volume and enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones. There are, however, other hyaluronic acid fillers that are preferable for injection into the lips. Dr. Green loves the original Restylane-L for lip augmentation, as the texture of this hyaluronic acid gel filler is perfect for boosting the volume of the lips and enhancing their shape in a natural looking way. When you consult with Dr. Green about lip augmentation with dermal fillers, you’ll have the opportunity to share with her your cosmetic goals and discover which filler product is best-suited to you.

How is Restylane Contour different?

Restylane Contour is different from other hyaluronic acid dermal fillers in that it is manufactured with xPreshan technology, allowing for a unique filler consistency that enables dynamic facial movement and expression. The texture of Restylane contour provides a firmness necessary for adding volume to the midface area, while at the same time being flexible enough to move naturally with various facial expressions. Restylane Contour is the only dermal filler product available in the United States from the Restylane family of fillers that is made with xPreshan technology, making it a one of a kind noninvasive cosmetic treatment option and powerful tool for facial rejuvenation. Dr. Michele Green in New York City is a board certified cosmetic dermatologist and expert when it comes to providing the best in noninvasive cosmetic procedures. She embraces a “less is more” philosophy in regards to facial rejuvenation treatment and will help you discover which unique combination of dermal filler products will address your skin concerns and deliver the best cosmetic results.

How does Restylane Lyft compare to Restylane Contour?

Restylane Contour was FDA approved in June 2021 for cheek augmentation and correction of midface contour deficiencies for adults 21 years of age or older. Restylane Contour is Galderma’s first formulated product that is made with XpresHAn Technology (TM) for the cheeks. Although Restylane Contour is newly available for use in the United States, the dermal filler has been used in the United Kingdom for several years and is known there as Restylane Volyme. XpresHAn technology (TM) is unique in that it integrates directly into the skin in the areas of injection and allows for flexible, dynamic expression. This means that when you’re laughing, smiling, and talking, the dermal filler is adapting with those facial movements for an extremely natural looking result that is unmatched by many other dermal filler products.

Restylane Lyft (a product formerly known as Perlane), is another excellent hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is commonly used to restore moderate to severe volume loss and wrinkles in the midface, smile lines, jaw line, marionette lines, pre-jowl sulcus, and the back of hands. Restylane Lyft is a dermal filler product with a larger particle size, making it a great option for treating areas of the face that need a strong foundational support and an extra lift- such as the mid face.

Both of these dermal filler products are excellent tools when it comes to providing facial rejuvenation, and one may be more well-suited to an individual patient than another. Each Restylane dermal filler product is composed of hyaluronic acid gel and is guaranteed to improve the appearance of the cheek area and mid-face. During your consultation with Dr. Green in her private dermatology office in the Upper East Side of Manhattan, you will have the opportunity to discuss your individual concerns and learn more about which filler or combination of fillers will provide you with the aesthetic results you are after.

Which lasts longer: Juvederm or Restylane Contour?

The newest addition to the Restylane family of dermal filler products, Restylane Contour, may be most comparable to the Allergan-manufactured Juvederm Voluma. Restylane and Juvederm products are both distinguished and exceptional hyaluronic acid gel fillers, designed for injection into the mid-face. The formulation of Juvederm Voluma has a consistency which is smooth and gel-like, giving it the ability to quickly diffuse into tissue and provide an immediate lift. Restylane Countour is formulated with a granular or particulate gel, and also lifts and targets the cheeks and mid-face, moving with your dynamic facial expressions in a natural looking way.

Juvederm® Voluma and Restylane Contour both offer unique benefits when it comes to facial rejuvenation. As an injector, Dr. Green tailors each of her patients’ treatment plans to their individual needs and goals, relying on her expert knowledge of injectables in order to determine which treatment will give you the best cosmetic results. For a customized approach to aesthetic facial contouring, Restylane or Juvederm – or even a combination of the two – may be used to achieve the best outcome for facial rejuvenation, stimulate new collagen, and restore volume loss. Juvederm and Restylane dermal filler products are both used to deliver semi-permanent cosmetic results and require “touch up”treatment sessions every so often in order to maintain the best results. In clinical trials, results from injections with Restylane contour were shown to last for up to one year. Juvederm injections typically last between six and twelve months, though many patients have observed results lasting for up to two years in duration. Ultimately, the longevity of your individual cosmetic results will be dependent on several contributing factors including the treatment area into which they were injected, the type and amount of filler used during your treatment, and your personal metabolism.

How does Restylane Contour compare to Restylane Lyft and other varieties of Restylane products?

Since the original Restylane hyaluronic acid filler was approved by the FDA for cosmetic use in 2003, the Restylane family of dermal filler products has become incredibly popular. Restylane dermal filler products are now a favorite cosmetic injectable and a go-to option for many board-certified dermatologists, including Dr. Michele Green in NYC. Dr. Green was one of the first dermatologists in New York to incorporate Restylane products into the treatment plans of her patients. The recent addition of Restylane Contour to the Restylane family of dermal fillers allows for even more masterful customization when it comes to providing patients with the best in facial rejuvenation treatments.

The Restylane family of products is manufactured through the utilization of a special NASHA technology. The use of this technology gives each type of dermal filler product its own distinguished particle size. It is important to understand the qualities of each dermal filler in order to deliver the best cosmetic results. When selecting the most appropriate Restylane dermal fillers for a given patient, Dr. Green always considers the anatomy of the treatment area, the depth and severity of wrinkles or volume loss that is being targeted, and the unique qualities of each dermal filler product. Dr. Green’s extensive experience with and knowledge of various dermal filler products enables her to consistently provide each of her patients with optimal cosmetic results. For patients interested in the Restylane family of dermal fillers, the complete line of products includes Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Silk, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Refyne, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Skin Boosters, and now, Restylane Contour.

Restylane-L is the original Restylane injectable filler, used for treating moderate facial wrinkles such as the corners of the mouth, marionette lines, laugh lines, and the tear trough area (under eye area). Restylane is also an ideal injectable for natural, soft lip injections. Restylane can provide facial symmetry, increase lip plumpness, define the “cupid’s bow” and restore lost volume in the chin, oral commissures, nasolabial folds, and lines around the mouth. Restylane produces an extremely natural appearance and through pan-facial rejuvenation, or a “liquid face lift”, can restore volume and rejuvenate the entire face.

Restylane Lyft is the firmest formulation of Restylane dermal fillers. Restylane Lyft is indicated for injection into the deep dermis for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines, helping to restore hollowness, and enhancing the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Additionally, Restylane Lyft can be used for the purpose of revitalizing the hands. Over time, volume in the hands is lost, leading to the increasing prominence of wrinkles and veins. Restylane Lyft is firm to palpation and provides a stable structure and contour to the areas it is injected, making it an adequate dermal filler for hand rejuvenation.

Restylane Kysse and Restylane Silk are typically used for lip augmentation, shaping the lips, and smoothing fine lines around the mouth. The formulation of these dermal fillers provide for flexible movement of the lips with natural looking volume restoration.

Restylane Refyne is used to help minimize the appearance of moderate laugh lines and smile lines. Restyland Defyne may be preferred over Restylane Refyne for treatment of deeper laugh lines and smile lines. Restylane Defyne is typically used for chin augmentation. Using Restylane Defyne for improving the overall appearance of a recessed chin is an outstanding alternative to plastic surgery. The texture of Restylane Defyne and Restylane Refyne allows for flexibility of facial expressions, providing an overall natural, softened, and enhanced look.

Used strategically, Dr. Green often employs the Restylane family of products in order to provide complete facial rejuvenation and improve signs of aging. Patients of Dr. Greens are able to easily and quickly achieve a youthful, refreshed, and beautiful appearance with cosmetic injections. As an added bonus, the majority of Restylane products contain lidocaine, a local anesthetic, in order to minimize discomfort associated with injections.

Can I combine Botox injections with my dermal filler treatments?

Of course! When it comes to cosmetic injectables for facial rejuvenation, Botox (and other neuromodulators) and dermal fillers are both excellent treatment options and can, in fact, be used in a complementary manner. Botox, along with other neuromodulators such as Dysport and Xeomin, are injected into muscle in order to smooth out dynamic fine lines and wrinkles, usually around the eyes and on the forehead. Dynamic wrinkles are those which are formed as a result of repeating facial expressions over time. Dermal fillers like Restylane, however, are used to target fine lines and deep wrinkles that are related to volume loss and facial sagging that occur naturally as a part of the aging process. Restlyane, and other dermal filler products that are composed of hyaluronic acid, are perfect for treating wrinkles and fine lines that form independently of active facial expression.

Dr. Green often strategically utilizes a combination of dermal fillers, like Restylane, and Botox injections for her patients seeking pan-facial rejuvenation treatment. Combining these different types of cosmetic injectables allows Dr. Green to provide her patients with an artful revitalization and to elevate the treatment plans of her patients, reducing various signs of aging and leaving patients looking youthful, refreshed, and beautiful, naturally. When you consult with Dr. Michele Green in her private dermatology office in NYC, you will have the opportunity to discuss your specific skin concerns and aesthetic goals, as well as discover which combination of non-invasive cosmetic treatments is best-suited to you.

Can Restylane injections promote natural collagen production?

Collagen is a component that is naturally found in the skin that provides a firm structural foundation and boosts skin elasticity and resiliency, contributing to plumpness and suppleness. The amount of natural collagen in the skin decreases as part of the aging process, or as a result of inflammatory skin conditions like acne. Having subsequent treatments of Restylane injections can help encourage the body to synthesize new collagen, leading to smoother, firmer skin. In particular, patients with acne scars are able to observe significant reduction in the appearance of their scars after having Restylane injections into the areas of collagen loss. If you are interested in having Restlyane injections for the promotion of natural collagen production, discuss with Dr. Green. Dr. Green will evaluate your skin and recommend the best non-invasive treatment for you based on your specific concerns and your aesthetic goals.

Many patients who are interested in increasing the amount of collagen in their skin want to achieve a skin-tightening effect. If you are concerned with skin laxity and are looking for a solution that will provide tighter, firmer skin and improved skin elasticity, Thermage may be the treatment that you’re looking for. Thermage is a radiofrequency skin-tightening treatment that is designed specifically to induce collagen production in the treatment area. This innovative treatment works to tighten skin and stimulate new collagen production by heating the dermal layers beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance and enhancement of your natural beauty. Thermage treatment can be performed on a number of areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, abdomen, upper arms, and thighs. Thermage does not require numbing cream or any downtime whatsoever, meaning that patients can schedule their procedure with ease. During your consultation with Dr. Green, you will have the opportunity to discuss whether you are a good candidate for treatment with Thermage.

Can Restylane dermal filler be dissolved?

Restylane dermal filler, like other hyaluronic acid dermal filler products, can be dissolved by injecting the treatment area with something called Hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase, also known as Hylenex and Vitrase, is made of an enzyme that breaks down hyaluronic acid filler. Hyaluronidase can be used to correct the appearance of hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has migrated, has been incorrectly placed, or has produced unwanted results. Depending on the amount of Restylane, or other HA filler, that was initially injected and the viscosity of each cosmetic injectable, varying amounts and number of treatments of Hyaluronidase may be required for complete dissolution. If you have had cosmetic treatment with Restylane, or another hyaluronic acid filler product, and are unhappy with your results, Dr. Green can help.

How much are Restylane injections?

Your cheek enhancement and facial rejuvenation treatment will vary in price depending upon the variety and total number of dermal filler syringes used to achieve your individual results. Other factors that may influence the total cost of your treatment include the geographic location of the office in which you are treated and the experience level of your injector. While it may be more inexpensive to have cosmetic injectable treatment in a medical spa setting with an esthetician or nurse injector, it is worth investing in a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist. Having your dermal filler treatment with a healthcare professional in a medical setting will guarantee that your procedure is performed in accordance with the highest standards, helping to avoid any unwanted side effects as well as ensuring that your cosmetic results are satisfactory. During your consultation with Dr. Green in her private dermatology office, located in the Upper East Side neighborhood of Manhattan, you will have the opportunity to discuss with her all of your specific skin concerns, develop a customized treatment approach that is best-suited to you, and determine the total cost of your dermal filler injection treatment.

How do I get started with my facial rejuvenation?
