Ashburn, VA board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael J. Brown provides a wide range of dermal filler treatments to help correct aging in the face, addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. Restylane is a popular brand of dermal filler injections since it treats multiple issues with specialized formulas for results that are long-lasting. It 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 unique dermal filler plan can address mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the lips and mid-face. The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery carries several Restylane dermal fillers, including:
- Restylane: Fills in facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Corrects moderate to deep laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Fills in fine to moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Builds fullness in the lips and smoothes vertical lines on the lips
Restylane injectable treatments are suitable for any woman or man older than 21 years old who is looking to rejuvenate their overall appearance. Since it has different formulas, your procedure will be individualized to suit your concerns and goals. Restylane may help you correct visible signs of age, such as fine lines on your face, or improve the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve moderate or severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Several treatments are mixed with lidocaine, a local anesthetic, so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation with Dr. Brown to prevent a negative reaction.
"I highly recommend Dr.Brown and his entire practice! I had a Tummy tuck and Breast augmentation on December 10,2020. From the consultant beginning with Amber it was awesome. Very friendly and had very valuable information on the different implants available. Dr.Brown has extremely good bed side manner and answered all my questions. I had seen 2 doctors prior and he was the only one who didn’t try to upsell any procedures not needed. I did not require a Muscle repair which was awesome. Although I did let him know that once he was in the OR and saw if I needed it to go ahead. He did let me know after that it wasn’t necessary neither a full breast lift but only a crescent lift. The OR staff was also awesome. Everyone presented them selves and answered all my nervous jitter questions. I woke up from anesthesia and was immediately ready to go! After surgery not only did he take the time to call/message me to see how I was doing but his staff was on top of everything! Amber replied to all my text messages regarding any concern or question I had no matter the time or day for weeks on end including Christmas Day! 1 month post op appointment was great. Exam was easy and swelling was a minimum to non existent. I was given the ok to begin working out which is a huge thing in this type of procedure. 3 month post op was incredible. My scar is flat and I can say his technique shows in my results. I have a natural finish which is what I was going for. My scar is low and flat and healing very well. I’ve had 4 children and breastfed them all. He has left me looking better then before children. I came in today for lip fillers and again he explained everything from types and results. I explained i wanted only a little bit of a bottom fuller lip not crazy big and he did just that! I have been given my beautiful natural lips back just fuller and they are wonderful. Thank you so much Dr.Brown and staff for giving me my confidence back ♥️"- K.G. / Facebook / May 23, 2021
Restylane dermal injections are performed in the treatment room at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if preferred. The treatment is injected in your skin with a very fine needle and gently massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to decrease inflammation. Every Restylane formula is injected with a similar technique but on different areas treated to fit your unique concerns and goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane procedure is complete, you may resume your normal daily activities. Your recovery timeframe 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 often fades away after several hours. Bruising may appear, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 1 – 2 days, and you should sleep with your head propped up for at least the first night. Many patients will experience visible changes right after the injections, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane injection treatments generally last about one year based on the formula selected.
