Whether we’re laughing or smiling, life is best lived full of expression. Over time, those expressions begin to leave their mark in the form of wrinkles and creases, it’s inevitable as we age. The most popular option to easily address those wrinkles and creases are hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, such as the Restylane family of fillers.
Restylane’s hyaluronic acid dermal fillers, like many others, are made of natural, synthesized and fully degradable FDA-approved hyaluronic fluid – a natural substance that is already present in your skin. Restylane fillers, such as Restylane Lyft and their latest innovations Restylane Refyne & Defyne are injectable treatments that are safely performed in an office setting in as little as 30 minutes with only 1 or 2 tiny injections.
The Restylane family of fillers was designed with facial expressions and movement in mind. Their fillers, such as Restylane, Restylane Kysse, Restylane Contour and Restylane Lyft, formerly known as Perlane, can be used in a variety of ways such as plumping the lips, smoothing the lines and wrinkles around the mouth, and improving the look of the lines and creases that run from the nose to the corners of the lips and down to the chin, known as nasolabial folds and marionette lines.
Hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane, Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne can also be used to fill the hollowness under the eyes, to fill deeper wrinkles and cheek depressions and improve acne scarring. When done correctly Restylane dermal fillers can provide full facial rejuvenation.
Experience & expertise
At Schlessinger MD, one of the most important aspects of our practice, besides caring for patients, is that Dr. Schlessinger personally performs all injection treatments. Having more experience with hyaluronic acid fillers, including Restylane® & Restylane Lyft, and wrinkle relaxers such as BOTOX® and Dysport™ than most cosmetic surgeons in the nation, Dr. Schlessinger is a natural choice for this type of procedure.
Dr. Joel Schlessinger has been offering his patients Restylane® filler since its approval for use in the United States. The product had been widely used in Europe before that and Dr. Schlessinger is considered a national expert and lectures widely on the subject of wrinkle relaxers and fillers.
Our skin research center, located adjacent to our medical practice in Omaha, NE, was also one of a few select sites in the nation to conduct the FDA-approval trials for Restylane® and Restylane Lyft (formerly known as Perlane®). Dr. Schlessinger has done clinical research work for JUVEDERM® filler as well as for BOTOX® and Dysport™.

Originally had Botox but wanted more done for the frown line between my eyes. That’s when Restylane came into the picture. I already knew the pro’s & con’s & to me the benefits far outweighed the risks. So I scheduled an appointment & never looked back. The procedure was super quick & relatively painless (small needle poke). I had minimal swelling for a couple of days & I’d say within a few days the Restylane filler did a remarkable job of reversing the frown line!! I couldn’t be more happy with the results. My only complaint is that I didn’t pursue this sooner. 🙂 Now that my facial appearance is better, I feel more confident. This confidence is helping me improve on other areas that I desperately need to improve upon (i.e. weight loss).. so the motivation alone is priceless. TWO THUMBS UP!
