Patients can receive Restylane® injections from Dr. Jennifer Parker Porter and Dr. Jigar Sitapara at Chevy Chase Facial Plastic Surgery in order to improve their skin fitness. Restylane® is a gel injected into the dermal layer of the skin. It is a safe and relatively pain-free treatment designed to restore your skin’s fullness and volume, decreasing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Restylane® can eliminate the deep lines that appear in the nasolabial folds, the pathways between the nose and the mouth. The procedure will take about 30 minutes. Our Facial Plastic Surgeons will administer small injections of hyaluronic acid into the skin zones that you want revitalized. This is the same fluid found naturally in the body’s connective tissues where it functions as a cushion and a lubricant. Perlane® is of a similar composition but works on moderate to severe folds in the area of the mouth. The two products can be used together for full correction in some cases. Restylane-L® and Perlane-L®, both introduced in 2010, have lidocaine in the fillers for added comfort.
We are proud to be among the first to offer the newest product in the Restylane family, Restylane Contour®. This product is specifically designed to volumize the cheeks and midface.
Introducing Restylane® Silk, the first FDA-approved filler designed specifically for the treatment of lips and the lines around them. Restylane Silk’s unique, refined formulation is designed for precise lip shaping and for smoothing the lines around your mouth to create a natural look. It’s a treatment exclusive to select doctors, and it’s available here.
Now Offering Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne!
Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are two cutting-edge new injectables from the Restylane® line of products that can be used to help patients soften nasolabial folds for up to 12 months. While Restylane® Refyne is suited for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, Restylane® Defyne is ideal for deeper facial wrinkles or folds. These fillers are formulated with state-of-the-art XpresHAn technology that allows these fillers to beautifully and naturally blend in with the natural structure of the skin.
Restylane® Lyft is a hyaluronic acid filler specially formulated to help patients treat more severe facial lines, and for mid face volume restoration. It is injected under the skin, resulting in a refreshed and more youthful appearance that lasts from 6-9 months before a touch-up is needed. Restylane® Lyft is an FDA-approved filler designed to lift and contour the cheeks, and restore lost volume to the face in order to smooth and correct facial lines and wrinkles, including the nasolabial folds. This filler is perfect for individuals who have, over time, due to fat and bone loss or the natural breakdown of collagen, lost volume in their face and want to get it back for a refreshed and contoured, naturally youthful look.
