Your private consultation with Dr. Moses

During your initial consultation with Dr. Moses, you will discuss how to achieve a more youthful look and craft a customized treatment for facial rejuvenation. We are committed to providing natural and fresh results – never overdone or obvious.

Preparing for Restylane 

A numbing cream is typically administered before the Restylane procedure begins to ensure your comfort. Our goal is to minimize any discomfort from the injections. You will be resting comfortably in our private boutique clinic under the care of a team of professionals committed to making your journey to a more youthful look pleasant and rewarding.

Getting Restylane

Restylane injections are relatively easy to administer, and the entire process can take a few minutes to half an hour. Restylane is injected beneath the skin, allowing the hyaluronic acid to stick to the skin. The water in the acid will then help retain volume, restoring your skin’s smooth, youthful appearance.

Recovery after Restylane injections

After receiving Restylane injections, you may experience some swelling for two to three days. Although you can resume your usual activities immediately after your appointment, you should avoid the sun.

24 hours after treatment:

You may see lumps 24 hours after treatment, but this is normal and not a cause for worry. These can be massaged away, but ensure you only massage the lumps; you do not want to move your fillers. Sometimes, patients experience a tingling or numb feeling, which is also expected, and can sometimes last a few days.

A week after treatment:

For a week after your Restylane injections, avoiding extreme temperatures, including saunas, sun exposure, and tanning beds, is essential.
If you take any of the following, avoid them for one week after receiving your injections:

  • Non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory medications
  • Vitamin E supplements
  • Aspirin

Otherwise, you may experience bleeding or bruising.

Two weeks after treatment:

Generally, most patients can see the final results of their Restylane injections two weeks after treatment.

Restylane follow-up care

After your Restylane injections, you should use cold compresses to reduce swelling. The results of Restylane differ from patient to patient, but with repeated maintenance treatments, they can be long-lasting.


Restylane injections can smooth out lines and wrinkles, giving your skin a soft and supple appearance that everyone will notice and no one will know.

Restylane vs. other treatments


Refyne is part of the Restylane brand and targets laugh lines while preserving your face’s natural movements, so you will still look like you.


Defyne targets deep laugh lines and enhances your chin’s projection for a more defined profile.


Kysse is a lip filler that can enhance your lips' volume naturally. It can also restore and improve the color of your lips while smoothing out fine wrinkles.


Over time, our cheeks can lose their natural definition and volume. Contour is a cheek filler that can restore these features without affecting your facial expressions or movement.
