Starting cosmetic treatments early with less invasive procedures such as Restylane® can keep you looking younger for years.
As part of the natural aging process, facial lines and wrinkles increase in number while folds grow deeper. As these signs of age become more prevalent, shape and definition is lost in the face. Dr. Matthew White offers a number of advanced injectable treatments that can address these issues, and one of the most effective is Restylane®. The first dermal filler made from non-animal based hyaluronic acid that is completely identical to the hyaluronic acid manufactured naturally in our bodies, Restylane® can restore volume and fullness to the skin for near-instant rejuvenation.
Restylane® injections are designed to boost the body’s natural level of hyaluronic acid, which works to smooth out wrinkles, add volume to facial features, and yield a more youthful and refreshed appearance with long-lasting results.

Restylane® can rejuvenate the face by significantly reducing signs of age.
The benefits of Restylane® include:
The effects of Restylane® can also be maintained with occasional follow-up treatment. Dr. White will meet with you for an initial consultation to answer your questions and determine if Restylane® is the right option for your needs.
Ideal candidates for Restylane® are men and women of all ages who wish to restore a more youthful, vibrant appearance by diminishing the look of facial lines, wrinkles, and creases. Candidates should be in good overall health while maintaining realistic expectations in regard to the results Restylane® can provide.
Dr. Matthew White’s patients who wish to undergo a more complete facial rejuvenation often choose to combine Restylane® treatments with other aesthetic procedures, such as facelift or neck lift, to achieve the most satisfactory and balanced results possible. However, Restylane® can also be very effective as a lone procedure for patients who may not need surgery to achieve their goals.
Before each Restylane® treatment, Dr. White consults with the patient about his or her individual aesthetic concerns, expectations, and goals to ensure that Restylane® can meet their needs. Restylane® treatments utilize a pre-measured dosage and very thin needles to inject the solution into the target areas of the face. The clear gel in Restylane®, called NASHA (Non-Animal Stabilized Hyaluronic Acid), then integrates into the dermal tissue where it attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume.
Due to the fact that the needles are so small and the dosage so low, patients very rarely experience much discomfort during the treatment. However, for patients who are particularly sensitive, Dr. White can anesthetize the treatment area. The entire procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete, depending on the number and size of the areas being treated.
Patients are typically able to see the results of Restylane® immediately after treatment and return to their normal activities as soon as they leave the office. Though some patients may experience slight swelling or bruising at the injection sites for a brief period after treatment, these minor reactions can often be covered with mineral makeup. Results typically last 6 months or longer – twice as long as collagen-based injectables. In addition, Restylane® does not require the pre-testing or waiting period needed for collagen-based injectables and there is no risk of allergic reaction.
