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.

"Wow! What a difference it is to go to a really good Aesthetician with the latest equipment. After 13 years of painful IPL treatments this was a walk in the park. Dr. Michael Brown is obviously concerned with having the latest and best machines. I have been to several other offices in the last few years and they all have the older machines where pain comes with the treatment. Amanda Hopeck is the Licensed Aesthetician and she is so knowledgeable and so nice! I will not be going to my old doctor's office ever again, this wonderful and skilled young lady is my new skin care provider! I can hardly wait to do the micro needling with her next month! They also have the latest and best machine for that procedure. I also want to mention Mira, a medical assistant at this office who is super nice too! I really enjoy talking to her. The nurse who is the Director of Surgical Services, Amber Pappas, RN, BSN, what a nice and sharp person she is as well! Then Dr. Michael Brown, or should I say, most handsome doctor I have ever met! He is SO intelligent, it radiates off him and I am going to trust him to fix something another surgeon did badly. This is a fantastic office in every way and I can't recommend them highly enough. Today I spoke to a lady on the phone twice named Kathleen just to ask questions and she was very nice too! Every single person I have spoken to on the phone or in person has been so nice, friendly, just a pleasure to deal with. That is not something I have found in other medical offices."- D.A. / Yelp / Oct 18, 2019

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.
