Dr. Cohen has been doing clinical trials on Restylane products since 2006, and he continues to be a principal investigator in Restylane trials as well as an international trainer and speaker for these products.

At AboutSkin Dermatology and Dermsurgery, we see Restylane as more than just a treatment; it's a pathway to rediscover your skin's natural allure. This innovative range of hyaluronic acid injectables isn't solely about smoothing lines or plumping lips; it's about reigniting the youthful essence of your skin. Imagine softening the signs of time, enhancing your facial features with precision, and unveiling a refreshed, radiant version of you. With Restylane, we're not just treating your skin; we're crafting a masterpiece of elegance and natural beauty.

What Is Restylane®?

Restylane is a brand of dermal fillers that uses hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, to smooth wrinkles, enhance facial contours and create fuller lips. This line of fillers allows you to maintain a very natural appearance, even when making facial expressions that move the treated areas of the face. 

What Can Restylane® Treat? 

Restylane products are versatile and can address a range of concerns, including: 

  • Nasolabial folds: The lines running from the nose to the corners of the mouth
  • Secondary smile “accordion” lines: Lines that appear along the sides of the mouth when smiling
  • Marionette lines: Lines running from the corners of the mouth down to the chin
  • Deflated or flat cheeks: Lack of volume and definition in the cheeks
  • Under-eye hollows: A hollowed-out appearance beneath the eyes (in the tear trough/infra-orbital area) that may create dark circles and a tired appearance
  • Hollow temples: A sunken appearance in the temple region
  • Thin or deflated lips: A pout that lacks volume, shape or definition
  • A weak or drooping jawline: A jawline that lacks a defined and sculpted look
  • A small or recessed chin: A lack of chin projection that may create imbalanced facial features
  • Aging hands: Lack of volume in the back of the hands that contributes to wrinkles, crepey skin, and visible veins and tendons

Restylane® Technologies

A unique aspect of Restylane products lies in their patented OBT™ and NASHA™ technologies. These innovations allow for a customizable approach to skin rejuvenation, catering to individual skin types and aging concerns.

OBT™ (Optimal Balance Technology)

OBT involves varying the degree of cross-linking in the gel to create a range of Restylane products suited for different treatment areas and desired effects. This technology allows for a smoother gel with a softer texture that flows easily into the skin, providing a natural, flexible look and feel for contouring and volumizing. 

NASHA™ Technology (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid)

NASHA Technology is used to create a firmer gel, which can give more lift, support and projection. It involves minimal modification of the hyaluronic acid, keeping it close to its natural form, suitable for more precise and structured treatments.

The Restylane® Portfolio: Formulas and Uses

Who Are Good Candidates for Restylane®?

Candidates for Restylane are looking to address signs of aging or enhance their facial features. You might be a good fit for Restylane treatment if you:

  • Are in overall good health without active skin infections or severe allergies 
  • Have realistic expectations about the outcomes of filler treatments
  • Are an adult over the age of 21
  • Are not pregnant or breastfeeding 
  • Do not have a history of severe allergic reactions or hypersensitivity to any of the filler components

A thorough consultation with Dr. Cohen or another one of our highly experienced Board-Certified Dermatologists can help you determine whether Restylane is the right treatment for you. 

Restylane® Recovery and Downtime

Post-treatment, you may experience some degree of swelling and bruising. This is typically mild, and often subsides within a few days to a week. Downtime is minimal, and most patients return to normal activities shortly after the procedure based on their comfort.

Expected Results From Restylane®

When Will I See My Results?

You can typically see the results of a Restylane treatment immediately after the procedure. The filler works instantly to add volume and smooth out wrinkles. However, it might take a few days to see the final results, as swelling and bruising from the injection process can affect the initial appearance. Usually within a week or so, bruising and swelling subside (depending on the product as well as the duration of the FDA studies), revealing the full effects of the treatment.

How Long Will My Restylane® Results Last?

Generally, Restylane fillers remain in the treated area for six to 18 months, but many patients experience results for much longer. Restylane fillers not only provide immediate volume and wrinkle reduction but can also lead to long-lasting skin improvements through a process called neocollagenesis. This process stimulates collagen production in the skin, enhancing skin quality and structure over time. The hyaluronic acid in Restylane also attracts water, promoting hydration and further supporting the skin’s health and appearance. While the immediate effects of fillers are noticeable, the underlying enhancement of skin quality can lead to prolonged aesthetic benefits even after the filler itself has been metabolized by the body. 

How Much Does Restylane® Cost? 

Restylane treatment costs vary based on multiple factors, including the treatment area, the number of syringes/amount of product, and the number of sessions needed to meet your goals.

After your personalized consultation, we’ll provide specific pricing for your Restylane treatment.

What our patients say about us


Dr. Cohen is 'a derm's derm' -- his published research and opinions are sought after by other dermatologists obsessed with the latest innovations in cosmetic dermatology, including lasers, neuromodulators, and fillers. He's also trained many of these derms. Dr. Cohen is arguably one of the best in the U.S., though he's not flashy or self promoting --just intensely focused on achieving elegant, successful results. I stumbled into his practice quite by accident, and could not be happier. His PA Christina is also phenomenal.


I am so pleased with the high level of expertise and care I have received from Dr. Cohen, Dr. Ho and his medical assistants Cristina and Emily. From the Mohs surgery, to a multitude of lasers, to skin checks; the doctors  have been extremely conscientious and strive to have a relationship with their patients.  I am thrilled with the results of my cosmetic procedures and surgery.  In addition, They are kind and very humble providers. It truly is an honor to be a patient of Dr. Cohen and to be a valued patient of his medical practice. Truly the best in the country.. and The World. Thank you Dr. Cohen and Dr. Ho and staff!

I have been a patient of About Skin Dermatology for over 12 years. Everyone that I have ever encountered at this practice has been knowledgeable and very kind. I see both Dr. Ho and Dr. Cohen.

Dr Fettig was great- took her time with me and answered my questions. She has a nice bedside manner and good sense of humor.

I used Dr. Cohen for a Mohs procedure. He is fellowship trained and extremely competent. Dr. Cohen remained involved in my follow up care with a plastic surgeon and was always readily accessible and available to address my concerns. Both he and the office staff are caring and committed to providing the highest level of professional service. I highly recommend Dr. Cohen. I think it’s very nice.
