Hyaluronic Acid Derma Filler

AVERAGE COST: $750/syringe

Restylane® is a derma filler comprised of hyaluronic acid that is injected into the skin to restore lost volume, improving facial folds and wrinkles.


Restylane is a hyaluronic acid derma filler that enriches the skin by restoring lost volume to plump facial folds and wrinkles.

This highly localized treatment does not spread to other areas when injected, which makes it effective for specific lines on the face. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical structure found in the body, which makes Restylane a safe and effective FDA approved injectable. With results lasting up to a year, the non-invasive injection by Northern Virginia board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mountcastle, can offer a rejuvenating “facelift” with no downtime.

During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the comfort of local anesthesia, the Restylane filler will be injected into the skin using a fine needle where added volume is desired. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.

The results following a Restylane injection will be seen immediately and can last up to a full year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide.


While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.



Two all-new fillers from the Galderma family are here! Adding two more fillers to the extensive list of fillers we already offer may add some confusion to choosing which best filler is right for you. If you are familiar with the Allergan family of fillers you know that includes Juvederm Ultra and Ultra Plus, Juvederm Voluma, Juvederm Vollure, and Juvederm Volbella. Now with the Galderma family, we have Restylane, Restylane Sylk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne.

Restylane Refyne and Defyne serve very different purposes. They differ from all the other fillers in a sense that they are supposed to soften moderate laugh lines while still making your face look natural while talking and smiling. Some of the more hydrophilic fillers tend to look puffy primarily on patients who have thinner faces, so with these new fillers coming on the market, it widens the possibilities.

Restylane Refyne is used mainly for very superficial fine lines around the mouth. It creates a smooth softening of those pesky wrinkles, especially in motion. Restylane Refyne utilizes XpresHAn TechnologyTM which helps to create the expressions in movement naturally and subtly.

Restylane Defyne is used for deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Restylane Defyne also uses XpresHAn TechnologyTM which again creates volume and allows your expressions to look more natural than with some of the other thicker fillers.
