What to Expect During Your Dermal Filler Treatment


It’s no secret that dermal fillers are one of the most popular cosmetic treatments in medical spas everywhere.

Dermal fillers are incredible at restoring volume loss, smoothing wrinkles, and plumping and rejuvenating the skin.

With all the different fillers to choose from, one of these fillers has been taking the aesthetics industry by storm, becoming one of today’s most popular and sought-after options. We’re talking about Restylane™.

In today’s article, we will cover the exceptional benefits of Restylane™, along with giving you an overview of what you can expect at your injectable filler appointment with Luminescence Aesthetics.

Let’s dive in!

Restylane™ 101

Restylane™ is a collection of fillers formulated from hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a moisture-boosting substance that is found naturally in the skin.

Each subset from the Restylane™ line is uniquely formulated for use:

Restylane™ – the classic formulation is used to treat volume loss by temporarily adding volume to areas of the face such as the lips and cheeks. It is also used to smooth fine lines and wrinkles.

Restylane™ Refyne – is designed to smooth moderate lines and wrinkles such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It’s especially good for use around the lower areas of the face.

Restylane™ Defyne – is designed to smooth more severe wrinkles and skin folds along with providing facial contouring.

Restylane™ Silk – is used to plump and add fullness to the lips while also smoothing out lip lines around the mouth.

Restylane™ Lift – is the firmest of the Restylane fillers and is used to lift the cheeks and enhance the jaw and chin area. Lift is also used to treat moderate to severe lines and wrinkles.

Restylane™ vs Other Fillers

So why the Restylane™ collection?

Restylane™ has more of a granular texture, which makes it more apt to stay put at the injection site and less likely to migrate to other unwanted areas.

The Restylane™ collection offers a wide variety of formulations, making it a customizable option that can treat a variety of different concerns.

While it’s true there is no “best” option and each type of filler offers its own unique benefits, Restylane™ is a leading filler choice used by many providers.

Your Filler Appointment

When booking a dermal filler appointment at Luminescence Aesthetics, you’ll begin with a consultation session with one of our experienced providers.

During this session, your provider will pull your medical history, concern areas, and treatment goals and create a customized treatment plan.

The procedure itself takes around 30 minutes and is relatively painless. We may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area beforehand to minimize discomfort.

After the injection, you may experience some mild swelling and bruising, but don’t worry — this usually goes away in a couple of days.

While you can generally expect to notice results immediately following the procedure, it’s important to remember it may take days/weeks to see the full effect.

Defer to your provider throughout this time for any questions/concerns.
