Restylane in New Jersey

Add volume for natural-looking improvement with Restylane treatments at True Beauty Med Spa. With time, the adverse effects of sun damage, gravity, genetics, and the loss of collagen and elastin show across our faces. These factors cause our natural facial fat to vanish and the supporting skin to thin out and descend toward our jawline, creating an overall gaunt and aged appearance. As an injectable hyaluronic acid filler, Restylane restores volume depleted by age, sun damage, and lifestyle choices. This added volume allows for natural-looking improvement in laugh lines, jowls, marionette lines, thinning features, and facial hollows. Dr. Friedlander can help make your facial contours appear more youthful with Restylane, giving you a higher sense of self-confidence. Discover your options with a private consultation today at True Beauty Med Spa in Short Hills, New Jersey.

What is Restylane?

Fillers are injected under the dermis layer of the skin to correct wrinkles and fine lines and add volume to facial areas like the lips, cheeks, and forehead.

Facial wrinkles and creases are part of the natural aging process. These changes in our appearance occur as the collagen and elastin fibers in our skin begin to wear out. Fittingly, the first fillers were made from collagen but lasted only a short time. The original collagen products have now been replaced with better, longer-lasting products with great versatility.

Fillers such as Restylane are non-animal derived, biodegradable gels that are used to add fullness to your face and improve the signs of aging. The most common fillers containing HAs (hyaluronic acids) are natural sugars (polysaccharides) found in the body. Fillers vary in composition and density, which helps to determine where they can be used to achieve the best results.

  • It is reversible if you have a change of heart after receiving Restylane .
  • It is composed of hyaluronic acid, a biosynthetic ingredient with a low risk of allergy.
  • The effects last several months to a year depending on the type of Restylane and area of the face.

How do I Prepare for My Restylane Treatment?

Beverly Friedlander, MD

Avoid post-treatment swelling by following pre-treatment protocols. Before your New Jersey Restylane treatment, you should refrain from taking aspirin, NSAIDs, or any other blood thinners, as they can increase the likelihood of post-treatment bruising and swelling. In addition, patients are advised to stop all tobacco use at least four weeks before injectable treatments, as tobacco can increase your chances of complications and affect the quality of your results. When you arrive for your treatment, ice packs are placed on the injection site to improve comfort. Restylane contains traces of lidocaine, a local anesthetic, which will ease any discomfort during the injection; however, if you prefer, a topical anesthetic can be applied to further minimize discomfort.

What are my Restylane Options?

True Beauty Med Spa

There are several formulations available in the Restylane family. Each one is designed to treat specific concerns. Dr. Friedlander can use each Restylane filler separately or together to give you the vibrant, youthful results you desire.


Restylane provides subtle to dramatic enhancement of mild to severe fine lines, wrinkles, and facial volume loss created by the aging process. In addition, Restylane offers versatility while enhancing youthful contours. Restylane is used to correct nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lip lines, jowls, and the hollow area beneath the eyes. As a result, you will find yourself looking more youthful and alert.

Restylane Silk

Restylane Silk addresses volume loss and fine lines around the lips. As you age, your lips start to lose their fullness and plumpness. Restylane Silk can provide either subtle or dramatic enhancement to your naturally thin or thinning lips, giving you the youthful pout you desire.

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is ideal for facial augmentation and filling in facial hollows. The denser consistency of Restylane Lyft adds volume to the cheeks, softens nasolabial folds and smile lines, and minimizes the appearance of jowls. In addition, this injectable maintains its shape better than other injectables, providing greater fullness for added lift. Restylane Lyft can also benefit the tops of your hands by reducing the appearance of veins, tendons, and bones.

Restylane Defyne and Refyne

Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne are specifically designed to target the effects of aging and volume loss in facial areas that experience a high degree of movements, such as the space in between the nose and mouth (also called the perioral or nasolabial area) and the marionette or jowl region. Restylane Refyne is a flexible filler, providing subtle enhancement for mild to moderate lines, whereas Restylane Defyne is a bit less flexible, making it ideal for treating moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. In addition, these hyaluronic acid injections allow you to maintain a more natural-looking appearance when laughing or smiling.

Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is the first HA filler formulated with XpresHAn Technology specifically intended for use on the lips. When properly injected, it can enhance the volume and improve the definition of your lips, resulting in a soft, natural appearance. Your lips appear revitalized and fuller as the wrinkles are filled out. It can also be used to soften the fine lines of the upper lip. Unlike other fillers, Restylane Kysse is clinically proven to last up to one year.

Restylane Contour

Restylane Contour is a unique hyaluronic injectable cheek filler that balances the science and art of aesthetics by restoring the natural contour of your cheeks. It is the only cheek filler to use XpresHAN Technology™ to refresh your look while allowing dynamic expression, so smile big and laugh out loud. Using a special blend of viscosity and flexibility, your result is soft, natural cheeks. Experience minimal to no downtime and long-lasting results—up to one year with Restylane Contour.

Which Restylane filler is right for me?

Not all dermal fillers are created equal, which also holds true to each individual's facial anatomy. Due to the variance in facial structure and desired outcome, after Restylane New Jersey patients may each require a unique approach. Dr. Beverly Friedlander will discuss the best treatment plan for you based on your desired aesthetic goals. Scheduling a consultation with Dr. Friedlander at True Beauty Med Spa is the first step in achieving your ideal look!

Restylane Recovery

Restylane offers a non-surgical and non-invasive approach to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and increase facial volume. Your treatment does not require a lengthy recovery or time off of work, and patients can resume their normal activities shortly after the injection.

However, some of our New Jersey Restylane patients experience temporary redness, bruising, swelling, and tenderness at the injection site. Any discomfort can be remedied with cold compresses and over-the-counter medication like Tylenol. Alternatively, arnica gel can be applied to reduce any signs of the treatment. Dr. Bev may advise you to avoid exercise, alcohol, NSAIDs, and Vitamin E for a day or two post-treatment.

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Friedlander provides a numbing cream to ease any discomfort. You may feel a slight pinch, but nothing that can't be tolerated. Most patients don't feel anything.

Injectable treatments are safe, and side effects are short-lived. The most commonly reported side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness in the injection sites. These effects will continue to improve over the days following your injection.

During your consultation for Restylane New Jersey provider, Dr. Friedlander, or one of our aesthetic specialists, will discuss and determine the price of your Restylane treatment based on your overall treatment plan. Your beauty plan is based on your needs, aesthetic goals, and the number of treated areas.

Sleep on your back with your head elevated to minimize swelling and avoid applying pressure to the area.

You can eat and drink immediately after Restylane. If you had the product injected into your lips and your provider applied a numbing agent, wait a few hours or until normal sensation returns.

Our New Jersey dermal filler results are long-lasting. Depending on the type of Restylane, they can last from several months to a year. HA fillers may dissolve quicker in expressive areas of the face, such as around the mouth.

Yes, this is possible and depends on the specific areas and concerns you want to treat. For instance, certain dermal fillers are better suited to treat the delicate under-eye area, while others, such as Restylane Kysse, are formulated specifically to provide a natural-looking lip enhancement.

Restylane is considered an elective treatment and is typically not covered by insurance. Be sure to speak with your insurance provider about your coverage options or ask about payment and financing options.

It depends on where your treatment was on your body, the type of Restylane filler used, and how fast your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. Restylane results typically last six months to a year. Some patients choose to have additional treatments to maintain optimal results.

Getting rid of dark circles and bags under the eyes can be tricky, but Restylane and other dermal fillers can help. In addition, restoring volume to hollow tear troughs can minimize under-eye darkness by reducing the shadows below the lash line.

It is normal to have small lumps and bumps immediately after Restylane and other dermal fillers. Your injector can massage the area post-injection to help the product distribute evenly.

The bumps should smooth out as the filler settles into its final position, which can take a few weeks. If they persist, we offer hyaluronidase, which dissolves the filler.

Both collections boast a range of hyaluronic-acid-based fillers designed for different parts of the face. The differences are subtle and depend on the characteristics of each product. Some patients find Juvederm lasts longer, but duration is not the only factor to consider when selecting the ideal filler for your needs.

Generally speaking, Restylane is preferred over Juvederm for the under eyes because it is less likely to result in a bluish tint known as the Tyndall effect. Other HA fillers, such as Belotero, also work well in this area.
