About Restylane Injections
Houston, TX plastic surgeon, Dr. Edward Lee, offers a wide range of filler products to help correct and soften lines and wrinkles on the face. Restylane is an injectable filler that offers great results in replenishing lost volume where facial folds and wrinkles appear. It can be used around the mouth to fill in laugh lines, or to make your lips look fuller and more voluptuous. There are several variations of Restylane, each made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA) to return the skin to a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. Our office carries a selection of Restylane products. Each has its own benefit that we can discuss with you during your consultation. A few of the variations include Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane, Lyft, Restylane Defyne, and Restylane Refine.
Both men and women are candidates for a Restylane injection, but you must be 21 years of age to receive this filler. If you have thin lips, noticeable lines at rest near our mouth and nose, or deep lines that form between your brows, Restylane can be used to fill in these areas so that a softer appearance resides on the surface. Restylane works great to augment the lips as well. So if you are unhappy with the fullness of your lips, this filler may be a great option for you. If you have sagging skin or desire a more dramatic or long-term outcome, a surgical procedure may be a better option and can be discussed during the consultation.

"I had such a wonderful experience at Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Med Spa!! The staff is beyond spectacular. From the hands on (and handsome ladies/ gentlemen) owners Randy Rakes and Dr. Edward Lee to the nurse, injectors and Esthetician's (Alonah rocks!!).... Everyone is very informative, well trained, kind, knowledgeable, and on point. I've never felt in more capable and experienced hands. They have all the newest and greatest technology to aid in skin rejuvenation. And if you need a little help beyond that (which I did), Dr. Lee is one of the absolute best plastic surgeons in town. He is meticulous in his art. I would trust him with any procedure I decide to have done in the future and I feel completely confident in recommending him to any of my friends, family, or acquaintances. If you're looking for a wonderful med spa, Nouveau Plastic Surgery and Medspa is hands-down one of the best I've ever been to. Trust me! You'll love it there! It's amazing!!"- P.G. / Yelp / Aug 01, 2018
"Marty does brilliant work with injectables. She makes a plan, takes her time. She is very experienced and knowledgeable. I was comfortable with her and very impressed with the results. I had natural, but noticeable changes and Marty made suggestions no one else had. :)"- C.G. / Yelp / May 03, 2018
Plan Your Procedure
Restylane injections take place inside our minor procedures room. In most cases, we will apply a numbing ointment prior to the injection to help minimize discomfort. The product is injected into the skin through a fine needle, and messaged under the skin so that if properly fills the area that needs volume. Multiple injections will be needed and will be administered in layers, followed by a cold gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way. They just target different areas of the face according to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
After the injection process has been completed, you can return to work or resume normal activities. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this goes away in a few hours. Your recovery will depend upon what was actually being treated. For example, it generally takes 3 – 4 days for the lips to look and feel normal after lip augmentation. Bruising can be a factor in some areas, which may also lengthen the recovery. It is recommended to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright for the first night. The great news about Restylane, is that you will notice your results immediately after treatment. It make take 1 – 2 full weeks for the final results to take shape, but when they do, the face will appear fuller, softer, and smoother. Restylane injections, depending on the exact product used, can last up to a year or longer.
