Restylane® in San Diego
Growing older may bring wisdom and experience, but it can also lead to wrinkles and loss of facial volume. In the past, invasive, surgical procedures were the only solutions for aging and deteriorating appearances. Now, innovations in aesthetic medicine have given us the ability to treat these common concerns without incisions, stitches, or recovery time.
Restylane® and Restylane® Silk are soft hyaluronic acid gels that have earned FDA approval for the treatment of moderate to severe lines. These dermal fillers can be used exclusively to volumize the face and lips, but can also be used in combination with other fillers and neuromodulators. The effects can last between eight months to one year.
You can use Restylane® for the following purposes:
- Minimizing nasolabial folds and marionette lines
- Cheek augmentation
- Lip augmentation
- Under eye treatment
- Jawline contouring
- Chin enhancement
- Nose restructuring
- Hand treatment
Types of Restylane®
At Eros Beauty And Wellness, we offer the Restylane® line of hyaluronic acid fillers designed to give a natural, younger look to the face, hands, and neck. The innovative technology allows natural movement while still bringing fullness to cheeks, lips, nasolabial folds, and hands.
Unlike other Restylane® products, Restylane® Kysse is designed to bring fullness to the lips using an ultra-fine needle for precise placement. Kysse can also be used to address the perioral lines while still allowing natural expression.
Restylane® Refyne is designed with XpresHAn Technology to help soften mild to moderate nasolabial lines (laugh lines) and marionette lines (smile lines). Refyne helps restore a more natural look to your face while maintaining your unique facial expressions.
Restylane® Defyne treats moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Defyne specifically targets lines that have formed around the mouth and can be used to contour the chin to produce a more youthful facial profile.
Restylane® Lyft, previously known as Perlane®, is designed for deep injections to improve moderate to severe volume loss. It can treat lines of the cheeks, mid-face, and Nasolabial folds. Restylane® Lyft also brings fullness to the hands for a more youthful look.
The main difference between Restylane® Contour from other Restylane® products is the cross-linking and viscosity design. Restylane® Contour is designed to lift and contour. Its flexibility allows for natural facial expression and softer cheek contours.
Lip Augmentation With Restylane®
Enhancing your lips’ fullness and shape is a subtle, effective way of adding to your overall appearance. A few extra millimeters can turn your pout from sad to sexy in minutes. At Eros Beauty and Wellness in San Diego, Dr. Eros provides instant lip definition with Restylane® Silk. This hyaluronic acid-based product has an ultrafine consistency, allowing Dr. Eros to inject it closer to the skin’s surface for beautiful lip augmentation results.
When administered, the hyaluronic acid combines with water molecules in the skin to add immediate fullness and volume while also improving skin health. Compared to other hyaluronic acid fillers, the smaller, smoother particles integrate more seamlessly into the skin, resulting in natural-looking, luscious lips that can last up to a year.
Lip Augmentation Treatment Details
After disinfecting the skin, Dr. Eros will deliver Restylane® into the treatment areas using a fine needle. The filler’s formula includes an anesthetic for comfort. The most common side effects are swelling and bruising. The swelling can last up to 24 hours, therefore icing the treatment area is advisable. The treatment can easily take less than 30 minutes with no downtime. Afterward, patients can resume their normal skincare regimen and daily activities.
Liquid Facelift in San Diego
A liquid facelift, also called a non-surgical facelift, is a wonderful non-surgical option to bring fullness and youth back to the face by using a combination of neuromodulators and dermal fillers. The facial rejuvenation procedure removes wrinkles and gives the desired lift to the aging face. It also prevents the potential adverse outcomes of a surgical procedure.
Liquid Facelift Treatment Details
The liquid facelift is done using Botox® to relax facial muscles that make expression lines and wrinkles, as well as dermal fillers that give volume to cheeks and lips. It can also reduce the jowls restoring the youthful heart-shaped facial appearance. The dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid gels or calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres. These are all given by injections. Often, lidocaine is added to the Dermal fillers to minimize the discomfort. The procedure can be done in one visit or in stages, depending on what is suitable for you. The effects can last up to 2 yrs. If maintenance is continued, the desired effects will be longer lasting.

Any adult age 21 and older in good health is able to have this procedure. It should not be done in pregnancy. It is best if the person does not take anticoagulant therapies. People who have hypersensitivity reactions should avoid this product.
The most common side effects of Restylane® fillers are mild swelling and bruising from the injections. These will diminish on their own, and you can help decrease the swelling by applying ice. It is essential not to take anti-inflammatories or any medications that may increase bleeding during the week prior to the injections.
Because of the popularity of dermal fillers in San Diego, many spas and salons have begun offering anti-aging treatments such as Restylane®. However, for your safety, it is crucial to remember that only a skilled, medically-qualified practitioner should perform Restylane® injections.
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that helps your skin attract and retain moisture. Younger people have plenty of hyaluronic acid in their skin, but our bodies produce less of it as we age. Restylane® and other fillers use hyaluronic acid as their base because it is biocompatible and therefore less likely to cause an allergic reaction or have any other harmful side effects.
We take every precaution to ensure your comfort during the brief, in-office procedure. We perform the injections using a small, fine needle, and Restylane®’s formula includes an anesthetic called lidocaine to numb the skin. Most people find the treatment is quite tolerable; however, if you are still worried about pain, ask about a topical numbing cream.
Most commonly you may see swelling and bruising from the injections. It is important not to take any anti-inflammatories the week prior to the injections. Icing afterwards will decrease the swelling.
Restylane® and Restylane® Silk will produce the immediate results of fuller lips, contoured cheeks, and less prominent etched-in lines. The results will continue to progress over time as the filler works with the body’s natural collagen supply.
