Restylane is often used to remove the smile lines (wrinkles and creases around the mouth) and the tear troughs (the lines on the inner lower corner of the eye) for long-lasting results that enhance the skin for up to 6 months. Board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Schmid and Dr. Mooty also use Restylane for lip augmentation at The Lubbock Plastic Surgery Institute’s offices in Lubbock and Midland on patients from throughout West Texas and East New Mexico. Unlike BOTOX (which chemically blocks nerve transmission) or collagen (which is created from animals) Restylane is the only all-natural, non-animal, injectable hyaluronic-acid dermal filler available that is gentle and safe for the skin. Plus, since there are no animal products in Restylane, there’s no possibility for allergic reaction. It actually turns into water and carbon dioxide when it’s fully absorbed, completely disappearing from the patient’s body. Restylane is safe for use in combination with other med spa procedures including dermabrasion, BOTOX, and chemical peels.

"Dr Schmid did an exceptional job on my breast augmentation. His office was referred to me by multiple friends and professionals, and I could not be more satisfied. He gave me prices up front, gave me options and only focused on the area I was inquiring about. He never pushed any other procedures or products. I would highly recommend Dr Robert Schmid to my friends and family!"- Anonymous / UCompareHealthcare / May 17, 2017

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.
What to Expect@headingTag>
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.

Restylane is one the more popular derma fillers used to add volume to the lips. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to 6 months.
Best Place for Restylane?@headingTag>
A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward.
How Often Do I Treat Myself?@headingTag>
Most results will last a full year, however some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have another injection at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
