RestyLane is the brand name for a type of injectable filler that adds volume under the skin. The goal is twofold for most people: to finally get that one feature the always dreamed of, like prominent cheek bones or full lips, while filling out areas to remove wrinkles.

It is an injectable gel treatment that takes anywhere from 15-60 minutes to complete, and is done right in the office. There may be some mild discomfort, but many of the RestyLane products have a pain-reducing ingredient as part of the formula. Once done, you can return to your daily activities looking and feeling better about your appearance.
There are minor risks with just about any procedure, but complications are rare. You might experience some bruising around the injection sites that will subside. For the most part, patients complain very little about discomfort and side effects with this product.
In rare cases, some patients have an allergic reaction to the gel, which is why it's important to see a professional like Dr. Estimé for the injections. He is a medical doctor and can control any serious allergic reactions.
Results vary by patient, but most enjoy up to two years with this product. In some cases, they may need to come back to Dr. Estimé's office for a minor correction during the time.
