What is Restylane?

In terms of anti-aging technologies, Restylane is among the most efficient weapons in Dr. Samra’s arsenal to help combat the effects of time and gravity on the human face. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, a biocompatible compound responsible for skin hydration and suppleness, Restylane can restore a healthy, youthful glow and a radiant, blemish-free complexion.

Choose from Restylane Lyft for lifting the cheeks; Restylane Refyne and Defyne for correcting nasolabial folds and marionette lines; or Restylane Silk for boosting lip volume. Dr. Samra will help determine the best Restylane formulation for your needs when you meet with him for your initial consultation. He may also opt to combine Restylane with other dermal fillers to achieve marked improvement in all areas of the face
