About Restylane Injections
Houston, TX plastic surgeon Dr. S. Benjamin Albright offers a wide range of filler products to help correct signs of facial aging, like lost volume, lines, and wrinkles. Restylane is one of the most popular brands of injectable wrinkle fillers because it treats several concerns with different formulas for long-lasting results. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A custom Restylane treatment plan can treat mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and cheeks. Albright Plastic Surgery carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Addresses facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Silk: Adds volume in the lips and fills in vertical lip lines
Restylane treatments are great for any patient over the age of 21 who want to improve their appearance. Since Restylane has so many formulas, your treatment will be customized to fit your concerns and goals. Restylane can help you treat early signs of aging, including fine lines throughout the face, or if you want to boost the volume in your lips and cheeks. Restylane can also treat moderate to severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Some Restylane formulas contain lidocaine, so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation with Dr. Albright to avoid a reaction.

"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019

"Awesome Experience - Could not be happier with Dr. Albright and his staff. His nurse, Carrie, does an excellent job explaining everything and setting everything up.

Plan Your Procedure
What to expect
Restylane injections take place inside our minor procedures room. While many Restylane formulas already contain the anesthetic agent lidocaine, a numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if requested. The product is injected into the skin through a blunt-tip microcannula and massaged so it fills the needed areas. This type of needle is less painful and is better for facial contouring. Multiple injections will be needed followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way but with different areas of the face targeted according to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
After your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to work. Your recovery will depend what is being treated, so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this usually goes away in a few hours. Bruising can be a factor in some areas, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for 24 hours and you should sleep upright for the first night. Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injections can often last up to a year depending on the exact product used.
