The Restylane CollectionHouston, TX
The Restylane® line of hyaluronic acid fillers is used to smooth away wrinkles and fine lines (Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, and/or Restylane® Lyft), create fuller and more accentuated lips (Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and/or Restylane® Defyne), and add lift and volume to the cheeks (Restylane® Lyft®). All Restylane® products work to enhance facial features and give long lasting, yet non-permanent results.
Some facial lines and wrinkles form as a result of muscle activity, not loss of volume. If you have these types of wrinkles, Dr. Sato might recommend BOTOX® Cosmetic or Dysport® injections in conjunction with the dermal filler.

Am I A GoodCandidate?
Anyone looking to enhance their appearance by restoring volume to areas of the face that have lost volume over time (including stubborn wrinkles not fully eliminated with BOTOX® or Dysport®) may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. During your consultation, Dr. Sato will evaluate your medical history and examine your skin to determine if Juvéderm® Volbella XC, Juvéderm® Ultra XC, Juvéderm® Ultra Plus XC, Juvéderm® Vollure XC, Juvéderm® Voluma XC, Radiesse®, Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, Restylane® Defyne, and/or Restylane® Lyft is right for you.
Dermal filler injections take about 20 minutes to administer in the office. You will arrive 30 minutes early to apply a topical anesthetic to numb the treatment area and reduce the risk of any potential discomfort.
Using a very fine needle, Dr. Sato will place a series of tiny injections into the skin along the areas being treated. During and after the injections, Dr. Sato may gently massage the treated areas to uniformly distribute the dermal filler.
An ice pack can be applied for the first 24 hours to help decrease swelling and bruising. There is no down time and you can return to normal activities with virtually no restrictions immediately after the procedure.To minimize your chance for bruising it is best to avoid alcohol consumption for 48 hours prior to your injection. NSAIDs such as Ibuprofen or Aleve and Aspirin should be avoided for 7 days before and after the injection.
The results of Restylane® Silk, Restylane® Refyne, and/or Restylane® Defyne injections are visible immediately and will continue to improve as swelling and bruising subside. Effects are expected to last 6-9 months. Restylane® Lyft results can last up to one year.
