What is Restylane® or Juvederm®? Both "fillers" are crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.*

How does it work? Restylane® is injected into the skin in order to add volume to lips and lift up wrinkles and folds.*

Where is Restylane® injected? It is used to treat nasolabial folds, lip lines, lip boarders and used for lip augmentation.

How long does it last? Restylane® effects are immediate and usually lasts 9-12 months when treating nasolabial folds and about 6 months for lip injections.*

Are there any side effects? After the treatment some common injection-related reactions may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve spontaneously within a few days after injection into the skin.*

Is it safe? As Restylane® is a totally non-animal product, there is no risk of eliciting allergic reactions and there is no risk of transmitting disease. Unlike collagen injections, you do not need to have prior skin testing.*

How much does it cost? Treatments $575/syringe
(Versa filer $500, Restylane Silk/ Restylane Lyft $600)

FAT TRANSFER $2200 for nasolabial folds
A minor surgical procedure where a very small amount of your own fat is harvested (removed) from one area of the body ( usually thigh or abdomen) and transferred to your nasolabial folds/smile lines. The fat can usually last several years if the transferred fat obtains a good blood supply. Treatment involves a small 1-2 mm size incision on the body and covered with a Band-aid. Your body readily accepts your own fatty tissue and is placed with a small needle into the nasolabial folds. You may experience a few days of bruising, mild swelling. There is no need for pain medication, and treatment takes less then 30 minutes. A second session maybe required several months later for full correction.*
