Restylane | Greenwich | Westport CT

For smoothing wrinkles, sculpting lips, and improving other facial features, Restylane injections are a growing favorite. Approved by the FDA in December 2003, Restylane can produce positive results on facial wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose. Another benefit is the long-lasting results, as the effects of Restylane treatments can last six months or more.

Restylane injections are typically administered to our clients aged 35 to 60. It is most often performed with local anesthesia, especially if the lip is being treated. The new generation of Restylane contains lidocaine thus our clients may experience little or no pain from the needle during injection. Depending upon the extent of the treatment, the procedure can take from a few minutes up to 30 minutes. Our clients return home shortly after the procedure.

Resylane results are fully evident within one week. Restylane has a success rate for reducing or eliminating deep wrinkles that cannot be accomplished with other procedures such as chemical peels or microdermabrasion. Post treatment swelling may be pronounced, lasting for two or three days. Normal activities can be resumed immediately, though clients are advised to stay out of the sun. Unmanageable pain, as well as symptoms that are progressive or abnormal, should be reported to the doctor immediately.

Restylane treatments reduce wrinkles by about 80 percent. Restylane is a temporary solution and follow-up treatments may be needed.


Both Restylane and Perlane create beauty with a gel based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. It gives natural volume in your skin to lift and produce new firmness, resulting in a healthy, vital appearance. Unlike bovine collagen which is derived from animals and requires an allergy test, Restylane® requires no pre-testing.
They are both made from hyaluronic acid (HA’s). We find the results to be very similar. However, we love Juvederm Ultra in the lips as it does not swell as much as Restylane. At the end of the day, it all depends on the clinician and what product they favor and are comfortable with. We find the results and longevity to be the same.
Like Restylane, Juvederm is a gel made of hyaluronic acid—a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps to add volume and hydration. Juvederm fills in moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (the folds running from the sides of the bottom of the nose to the outer corners of the mouth), achieving a smooth and natural look. Like Restylane it can also be used to eliminate under eyes circles, volumize your lips and your cheeks to give you a younger more youthful appearance.
Juvederm has FDA clearance to last up to one year with one treatment. In our practice we find that typically Juvederm Ultra lasts up to six months while Juvederm Ultra Plus can last up to a year. Longevity also depends on the area being treated. Juvederm or Restylane can last only 3-6 months in lips.
Your injection experience should be very comfortable. Now with the introduction of the new Juvederm with lidocane – i.e. Juvederm XC, no one should experience discomforting or pain. Our clients especially love Juvederm XC in their lips as this is the most sensitive area to treat. With the new Juvederm XC, the experience is much more relaxing.
Like Restylane, the price varies depending on the number of syringes you need and the type of product used to give you your ultimate result. Typically, our average clients need 2 – 3 syringes of HA’s to get full correction. Price can average around $750 to $500 per syringe.
