Restylane® in Santa Barbara, CA

The deep folds and creases around the mouth and nose create an unhappy expression. Men and women in Santa Barbara, Santa Maria, and Ventura, CA, and the surrounding communities can turn to Sara Yegiyants, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, for Restylane® to add volume to their skin and restore a more pleasant, rejuvenated appearance.

What is Restylane®?

When it comes to adding volume to the skin to reduce the signs of aging, Restylane® is a dermal filler developed to reduce the signs of aging and restore a revitalized appearance. It contains hyaluronic acid, which is a natural ingredient that binds with skin cells to add moisture and elasticity to the skin. In addition to treating skin imperfections on its own, other Restylane® products treat specific areas of the face to diminish lines, folds and wrinkles.

What Restylane® Fillers are Offered?

Dr. Yegiyants offers the following Restylane® fillers in addition to Restylane® itself:

About Restylane® Silk

Restylane® Silk specifically targets the lips and areas around them. When injected into the targeted areas, it adds volume to plump the lips and adds definition along with improving lip definition.

About Restylane® Lyft

While defined cheekbones are attractive, hollowed cheeks that come with age tend to drag the face down. Restylane® Lyft adds volume to the skin in the midface area to subtly restore fullness to the cheeks.

About Restylane® Defyne

With Restylane® Defyne, the goal is to add volume to the folds and deep creases around the nose and face that pull down the entire facial appearance. It treats more severe wrinkles and lines without interfering with natural facial movement.

About Restylane® Refyne

Restylane® Refyne is similar to Defyne in the areas it targets; however, it is a softer gel filler and is used more frequently with more superficial lines, folds and wrinkles. It, too, corrects facial imperfections without negatively affecting facial expression and movement.

Why Choose Restylane®?

Restylane® has a long history of correcting facial imperfections. Over the years, it has perfected the fillers and has added fillers to its family targeted at specific areas of the face.

Who is a Good Candidate for Restylane®?

Restylane® is safe for all skin types as it contains hyaluronic acid, a substance produced by the body to add moisture to the skin. To determine if a Restylane® filler is the best option Dr. Yegiyants recommends an initial consultation to evaluate the skin and its imperfections.

How is Restylane® Administered?

Restylane® is injected into the targeted areas using a fine-gauge needle. The area is massaged to evenly spread the filler. The entire process takes only about 30 minutes depending on the number of areas being treated. Even though the treatments are virtually painless, Dr. Yegiyants may apply a topical numbing cream especially on those who are anxious about needles. There is no recovery or downtime so it is possible to return to a normal routine immediately following treatments.

When Will I See the Results from Restylane®?

The results from Restylane® products are immediate and improve over time. Depending on the product, the results may last up to a year or more. The desired look with Restylane® should be subtle and restore a rejuvenated, fresh appearance.

How Much Does Restylane® Cost?

The cost of Restylane® is different with each patient based on the product used, how many injections are required and whether other treatments are performed during the same appointment. We review the costs during consultations. We accept cash, checks and major credit cards in addition to offering financing through Alphaeon® and CareCredit®.
