Restylane Long Island

The oldest hyaluronic acid dermal filler in use today is Restylane with Restylane-L a close second.

Although older, this filler is still important and frequently requested by my Long Island patients. Plus, is excellent for filling moderate to deep facial wrinkles and, particularly suited for correcting the under eye.

They are easily reversable due to their hyaluronic acid core. Plus, are perfect for filling fine facial areas. Therefore, should a problem arise, hyaluronidase will dissolve these fillers.

what areas can be injected?

Initially, Restylane was only approved for the smile lines of the mouth. However, in time granted FDA approval for injection into multiple facial zones.  Areas for injection include:

  • Nasolabial folds ( smile lines)
  • Chin
  • Marionette Lines
  • Tear troughs
  • Lips

Moreover, Restylane-L is a perfect filler to treat tear troughs.  Remarkably, over absorption of water  often causes a swelling after tear trough injections. The limited absorption of water reduces swelling after injection.

 Plus, Restylane will not migrate to unintended areas therefore a major benefit

what makes restyane-L different ?

Restylane-L contains Lidocaine, therefore making the injections pain free.  Our Long Island patients appreciate not only the comfort but natural looking results.


Beautiful softening of moderate wrinkles of the lower face.

what problems can occur using Restylane?

  • Allergic reaction
  • Infection
  • Arterial Occlusion
  • Uneven outcome, however this is due poor to injector technique

What are the contraindications to restylane on Long Island?

  • Lidocaine Allergy
  • Blood Thinners
  • Generalized multiple allergies
  • Previous bad reaction 

when will i see results ?

Dermal fillers occupy the wrinkle and begin to expand thus, results are instant. 

Most of the time as the dermal filler absorbs water you see a continued improvement which subsides at two weeks.

Depending on the area injected, your results may last over a year

Restylane-L Long island For tear troughs

Restylane-L is a perfect dermal filler for treating the under eye.

A deep tear trough created not only a dark appearing lower lid but also creates a tired aged look.

The lidocaine mixed into the Restylane-L makes the injections painless and the nature of the filler creates a beautiful looking under eye.
