Our San Jose Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft treatments are injectable dermal fillers to smooth, fill, and restore a more youthful facial appearance. Restylane is a smooth, hyaluronic acid-based filler that when carefully injected, can take years off your look by smoothing lines, creases, or restoring volume to hollow, sunken areas.

What is Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft?

Both Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are made of synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring, hydrating substance. For this reason, no allergy tests are required. The first treatment lasts about six months. A second treatment of Restylane® or Restylane® Lyft can often last as long as 18 months.

How Much Does Restylane® Cost?

The cost of your Restylane® enhancement will depend on your cosmetic goals, and a final price will be provided in your private consultation. Generally, however, Restylane® treatments cost an average of $750 but may be higher or lower, based on the number of units needed.

What are the Benefits of Restylane® and Restylane Lyft®?

Restylane® is a dermal filler designed to smooth wrinkles and restore or add volume, treating many of the common signs of aging and allowing you to enhance your natural beauty. Restylane® can be used to:

  • Plump and refine your lips for a luscious, beautiful smile
  • Smooth the fine lip lines without an “overfilled” look
  • Restore lost volume to aging cheeks
  • Plump and subtly smooth the “bags” beneath your eyes and minimize the appearance of dark circles

Restylane Lyft® is a similar product, in a thicker formula and effective for:

  • Lifting sagging cheeks
  • Smoothing deep smile lines
  • Restoring lost volume to the backs of your hands

Both products are incredibly effective, fast, “lunchtime” procedures with no downtime and instant results. You can expect the results to last anywhere in the range of eight to sixteen months, and additional treatments performed when the effects fade to continue to maintain a more youthful, refreshed look.

What is the Difference Between Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft?

Our Palo Alto Restylane® is soft and transparent, so it is especially effective on fine lines, such as those fine lines that appear around the mouth. It can also be used for mid to deep injection into facial tissue for the correction of moderate to severe wrinkles and folds including laugh lines and frown lines.

The Right Product for Facial Rejuvenation.

Restylane® Lyft is a sister product to Restylane®. It also works well on severe lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds.

Although they are both composed of hyaluronic acid, the gel particles in Restylane® Lyft are larger and give the filler the ability to lift and fill the mid face. It is very effectively used to build up and add volume to areas that have begun to sag, such as the mid cheek area. Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft are often used together to achieve the patient’s desired outcome.

In addition to facial anti-aging, Restylane® Lyft is helpful for non-surgical hand rejuvenation to restore lost volume to thinning hand tissue, creating a more youthful appearance.

Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne

Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne are the newest additions to the Restylane® line of products from Galderma. Formulated using a specialized technology, the gel in Restylane® Refyne and Restylane® Defyne is perfect for helping to support your natural facial expressions.

These fillers were designed specifically to correct marionette lines (the lines that run from to your chin) and nasolabial folds (the lines that run from the corners of your mouth towards your chin).

Restylane® Silk

While several fillers are used for lip enhancement, our San Jose Restylane® Silk is the only filler that has been FDA approved to enhance lips and smooth the lip lines which start to appear as the years pass. Restylane® Silk is specifically designed to bring natural-looking results in these delicate areas by using smaller and more refined hyaluronic acid particles as compared to other Restylane® products.

Your San Jose Restylane® Treatment

We will ask you to avoid aspirin and blood thinners for about a week before your injections. We administer Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft using a fine needle, so neither is a painful treatment.

Lidocaine is included in both formulas to numb the injection sites, but we can also apply a topical anesthetic to further numb the treated areas.

The injections themselves usually take no more than 30 and 45 minutes. After the correct dosage is calculated, one of our experienced doctors or nurses will inject the Restylane® carefully into the treatment area. Afterward, an ice pack may be applied to the area and you will be able to go home almost immediately. Your results will already be visible directly after the procedure is performed.


Can Restylane® help to improve the look of my hands?

As we age the volume in hands can deteriorate, leaving the upper hand tissue looking gaunt or skeletal. Restylane® Lyft is the first and only hyaluronic acid filler FDA-approved to treat the face and hands.

Can Restylane® be used on my frown lines?

For wrinkles caused by muscle activity, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, BOTOX® or Dysport® or Jeuveau injections are appropriate. After we examine you, we will be able to advise you which injectable will provide you with the look you want. For most patients, a combination of dermal fillers is recommended.

Are Restylane® injections safe?

Restylane® is a safe, effective and dissolvable HA filler. In the hands of skilled injectors like our double board-certified facial plastic surgeons, Restylane® and Restylane® Lyft can be used to rejuvenate your face so that moderate to severe lines and wrinkles are smoothed, leaving you looking refreshed and more youthful in just minutes.

Even with social distancing, we're still here for you.

As the current situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, we are continuing to make decisions regarding our practice to keep ourselves and our community healthy. As the future of this virus is uncertain, it is mandated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department Officials that all non-essential businesses close their doors and shelter in place.

Because of this region-wide order, our office will be closed as of Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 and will be rescheduling all non-emergent treatments, follow up appointments and surgeries after Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.⁣ All future in-office events for March and April have been postponed until further notice.

To those patients that need to be seen urgently for post-operative or emergent appointments - please call our office phone number. Your call will be forwarded to an employee that can best help you as we will still have remote access to our schedule. They will make the necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the proper care. ⁣

We are confident that we will make it through this and become a stronger and smarter community because of it. Yes, most people do not die from COVID-19 and many can be asymptomatic - but the sooner we isolate from one another, the sooner we can make sure those statistics do not change.⁣

As physicians, we hold health to the utmost importance so we please ask those of you who can - work from home when possible, do not go to restaurants or bars, limit your public exposure and be cognizant of those who are sick, elderly or immunocompromised. In this time, we have to not only think of ourselves, but think of those that can be directly affected and do all we can for the sake of our community, our state, and our country.⁣

We do not believe this is a time to panic - but rather the opposite. It is time to be rational and act with extreme purpose. By preventatively closing our doors for the next 3 weeks - we may be helping change the course of a potentially life-changing event in history.⁣

We look forward to a future of health and happiness with you at Cheng Plastic Surgery!⁣

Caring and cautious regards,⁣

Dr. Elbert & Dr. Jacqueline Cheng
