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've been seeing Dr. Cheng for a couple of years now and she has improved the appearance of my skin immensely!! She is nice and patient and always happy to answer all the questions I have. She really keeps up with the very latest techniques and products to reduce wrinkles and brown spots. She's great with Botox and Restylane and IPL Fotofacial. She doesn't push products on you that you don't need and is helpful with advice on what you can do yourself to keep your skin looking healthy. I highly recommend her."- A.W. / Yelp / Nov 19, 2012
"Dr. Cheng does beautiful work! I had Boxtox and Restylane for the first time about 9 months ago to stave off fine lines and the result was amazing. No one could tell that I had anything done but I got so many compliments about how refreshed and great I looked. The results lasted much longer than I had anticipated as well!Dr. Cheng is conservative with her treatment and definitely would rather do less at first and see how you like the result before doing more. She always shows you in the mirror the results and has you make the decision whether or not to add more. Additionally, the office is beautiful and spa like and the staff is very welcoming and helpful. No one in her office ever tries to sell additional products or services. I have recommended Nuveau countless times and will continue to do so!"- J.M. / Yelp / Jul 29, 2016

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.
