Restylane in New York City
Restylane® New York City
At Laser & Mohs Dermatology of New York, we offer several Restylane products to improve the signs of wrinkles. These dermal fillers are a great option for those looking for skin rejuvenation. They were developed in Sweden, and since 1996, it has helped millions of patients in 70 countries achieve younger looking skin.
The science behind Restylane® is hyaluronic acid, which is present in youthful skin, but recedes and changes in structure as we age. The injections boost your natural supply of hyaluronic acid, which will smooth out signs of aging and enhance your natural beauty.
What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a clear injectable gel formulation of hyaluronic acid. It is the world’s most studied wrinkle filler, with more than a decade of use. Restylane and Restylane Lyft are indicated for mid-to-deep dermal implantation and have been used in more than 10 million treatments in over 65 countries worldwide. Restylane is biocompatible with the human body and is broken down naturally.
What Can Restylane® Improve?

- The lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines)

- Marionette lines (the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline)
- Worry lines on the forehead
- Glabellar lines between the eyebrows

Dr. Adelle Quintana uses Restylane Silk to add definition and symmetry to the lips. Restylane Silk contains hyaluronic acid particles that are much smaller than other fillers, which allows it to plump the lips without looking unnatural. This filler can address the cupid’s bow, side-side symmetry, fullness in the center, and projection. Learn more about how Restylane Silk can enhance your lips!
Restylane Lyft targets volume loss in the cheeks and mid-face. The gel particles in Restylane Lyft are larger than those in Restylane, allowing for a deeper injection into the skin. Results from Resylane Lyft are immediate and can last from 12-18 months. Restylane Lyft can also rejuvenate your hands.
