Lift, define, and smooth with the Restylane® family of filler products in NYC

Dr. Edmund Kwan in NYC is experienced with Restylane dermal filler products to get natural results, safely.

Many people are familiar with the Juvéderm® family of dermal fillers. With so many great fillers products on the market, Edmund Kwan, MD encourages you to get to know Restylane® Filler in NYC. There is sure to be a filler product best for your unique features and needs, and properly vetted by Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Edmund Kwan.

The beauty of Restylane®

Like Juvéderm®, Restylane® is made from hyaluronic acid. This moisturizing substance is present in the skin and is also a naturally-occurring lubricant in the eyes and joints. HA-based fillers are popular, because they are generally safe to use on many different types of patients, with a low risk of allergic reactions and side effects. HA binds well to water, so when a filler product formulated with it is injected into the skin, it does a great job of adding volume, softening, and hydrating sunken, leathery, and parched skin.

Also, like several other popular dermal fillers, Restylane® is not limited to a single type of product. Behind the brand is an array of fillers designed to correct age-related concerns.

These products include Restylane®. When injected precisely into wrinkles around your nose and mouth by our skilled clinician, Restylane® adds volume and fullness to soften moderate to severe nasolabial folds. It also improves the appearance of lines below the nose and at the corners of the mouth.

Restylane® Lyft (formerly Perlane®) is designed differently from Restylane®. This sister product is made with larger molecules, which allows it to be injected deeper into the skin. Restylane® Lyft may be the preferred option for volume loss and more severe wrinkles that require the injection of filler deeper into tissues. It may be used in the mid-face or cheek area, which is often one of the first areas where volume loss is noticeable. If your hands betray your age, Restylane® Lyft to the rescue! This formulation adds fullness to wrinkled or bony-looking hands.

Restylane® Silk is a unique product formulated to plump up and define thin lips. It contains smaller and smoother particles than its sister products, which makes Restylane® Silk an ideal product for this delicate part of the face. This filler works wonders on perioral wrinkles, which may arise due to smoking or habits like frequently pursing your lips.

Restylane® Refyne and Defyne: The newest additions to the family!

These sister products are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to correct moderate and severe folds around the nose and mouth. These nasolabial folds and marionette lines at the corners of the mouth look more noticeable over time as skin loses its elasticity.

Refyne and Defyne are formulated from an advanced technology, which allows for unique cross-linking of hyaluronic acid. The gel is made in a way that’s customized to patients with varying needs.

Think of cross-linking as the knots that hold the strands in a net together, so this feature determines each product’s level of flexibility and support. Since Refyne has less cross-linking, it’s woven more loosely. Defyne has greater cross-linking, so it’s woven more tightly. The Refyne gel’s greater flexibility provides moderate support, while less flexible Defyne offers greater support. Refyne softens moderate lines. Defyne lifts deeper wrinkles.

Filling you in about Restylane

Image of a Lady who used Restylane fillers

During your research, you may have come across products marked with an “L.” For instance, Restylane-L® refers to a product that is formulated with lidocaine. When mixed with the injectable gel, lidocaine numbs the treatment area to ease discomfort at the injection site. Due to allergic risks, it’s not an acceptable option for every patient.

While there are many options, some features are part of each Restylane® product, including:

  • You see visible results, instantly.
  • Depending on your needs, most treatments can be completed over a lunch hour.
  • Usually, treatment is completed in one to two appointments.
  • Depending on the product used, results may be seen for anywhere from six months to 18 months. You get longer-lasting results without the risks of side effects associated with more “permanent” fillers.
  • Side effects are typically limited to temporary mild swelling, tenderness, bruising, and redness.
  • Products are FDA-approved for use among patients aged 21 and older.

Patients of Edmund Kwan, MD also benefit from his extensive experience with these products and skill — a combination that contributes to naturally beautiful results. To schedule your consultation at the Manhattan office, call 212 734 4488.

  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - reviews by Tina R
    Dr. Kwan is by far the most talented surgeon I have EVER crossed paths with. I came to Dr. Kwan after an under eye fat transplant, performed 'by another' plastic surgeon, which deformed my face. It was only until I was under Dr.Kwan's care that the deformity was corrected. Dr. Kwan literally gave me back my beauty. This was a priceless feeling. That was about 4 years ago, I can assure you ever since- Dr. Kwan is the ONLY plastic surgeon I trust my face and body to. I look forward to my body contouring procedure coming up in a few weeks!! :)
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews Mascha N
    The staff treated me very kindly, with respect and genuine smiles. Dr Kwan is a real professional in my opinion. He took the time to listen to my story, addressed my concerns and took his time to walk me through the process and give me his opinion and explanation on his recommendation. I had my surgery in his practice and we went over everything again before I met up with the anesthesiologist, who was equally as nice and professional as everyone else at his practice. We started counting bikes ... and after bike #6 I fell a sleep. When I woke up, he was there to tell me I did great and before I knew it I was in a taxi cab back home with my best friend who came to pick me up. So I don't know if this is typical, but I had no pain whatsoever after the surgery. . I am very very happy with the results. Dr Kwan did an amazing job and I couldn't be more pleased.

    I was involved in an automobile accident last May, 2013. The outcome from the emergency room left me with 5 stitches on the bridge of my nose, and the tip of my nose was missing due to the severe impact of the accident. I called and scheduled an appointment to visit Dr. Kwan so he could assess my nose. Upon arriving to the office, I was immediately impressed with the facility, service, and professionalism of his staff. Dr. Kwan met with me and examined my nose and in detail, he explained the approach he would take in order to get my nose like brand new again.On the day of my surgery, I was met by Dr Kwan, who performed the surgery, himself. His Anesthesiologist was very informative and professional as well. The outcome of Phase 1 was a success. In addition to that, the staff even called my medication into the pharmacy that way it would be ready as soon as I left the office. My nose is 98% back to normal, I now look forward to Phase 2 to be completed. After that procedure is done I am positive my nose will look absolutely perfect and I will be back to my confident self again. Thanks Dr Kwan and Staff.

    I have had several surgeries with Dr Kwan, and would recommend him highly. Liposuction of abdomen and love handles came out smooth. Upper eyelids look younger and refreshed, and the Basal Cell Cancer he cut out of my nose is not even visible, despite the fact that it was right along the rim of my left nostril.
  •  Edmund Kwan, M.D. - Reviews T. Cannon
    I have been using Dr Kwan for over 10 years now. I have had many different procedures and all of them have turned out great. One of the breast augmentations had a crimp in the left breast and he had no problem going in to revise it to assure my satisfaction. I have always liked the way he answers each of my concerns and we go over everything for each procedure I've done several times to assure we are on the same page :) Take a list of any questions or concerns and I guarantee you will love your results no matter what procedure he is doing for you! .
