To fill in facial lines, wrinkles and folds, as well as add volume, Restylane is a dermal filler, which is injected into problem areas to produce smoothed, younger-looking skin. The filler is comprised of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body. Charlotte plastic surgeon, Dr. Vincent Voci, uses both Restylane Lyft and Silk to treat patients. Lyft adds volume to hollow cheekbones to give cheeks a fuller, more youthful look. Lyft also treats nasolabial folds, the lines between the nose and mouth. Silk is a lip filler that also fills in fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth.
"I have used Dr Voci for botox and restylane for several years with great success. I have had facials in their facility that are the best I have ever had. I trust Dr Voci and find him nothing but honest and very good at his work. I was recommended to him by a lady who had a full face lift by him and looked incredible. His staff are courteous and friendly - what's not to like?"- Anonymous / RateMDs / Oct 10, 2009
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
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.
The average cost for a syringe of Restylane is approximately $650, although this price may vary. The overall cost will be determined based upon how large an area is being treated, and the extent of wrinkles and lines being addressed.

Best Filler for Lips?
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?
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?
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.
