Restylane® in Richmond, VA
Hyaluronic acid is the secret to younger skin. Richmond Plastic Surgeons offers Restylane® for men and women in Richmond, Midlothian and surrounding areas of Virginia.
What is Restylane®?
Young skin contains high levels of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and other substances. As we get older, our bodies produce lower amounts of these substances, and our skin is prone to developing lines and wrinkles. Restylane® is an injectable treatment that restores the levels of hyaluronic acid in your skin to fill in lines and wrinkles.

What Do I Need to Do Before Having Restylane®?

What Should I Expect During My Restylane® Treatment?
A small gauge needle is used to inject Restylane® into your skin. Most patients remain comfortable during the treatment, but we can use a topical numbing cream if needed. Several injections will be made in the treatment area to achieve consistent results.
