Novato, CA plastic surgeons Drs. Francisco Canales and Heather Furnas are excited to offer a wide range of dermal filler injections to help correct signs of aging, addressing lost volume, wrinkles, and lines. Restylane is a popular brand of injectable dermal fillers since it treats many issues with specialized formulas for results that last. It uses a synthetic version of the body's natural HA (hyaluronic acid), providing the complexion a softer, natural appearance that is fuller and more supple. A personal dermal filler plan can correct mild, moderate, or severe facial wrinkles and lines, and also add fullness to the cheeks and lips. Allegro MedSpa of Novato carries many Restylane injectables, including:
- Restylane: Corrects facial folds and wrinkles
- Restylane Defyne: Treats moderate to severe laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Lyft: Creates lift and volume in the mid-face
- Restylane Refyne: Treats light to moderate laugh and smile wrinkles
- Restylane Silk: Creates fullness in the lips and corrects vertical lines on the lips
Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any person older than 21 years old who would like to refresh their overall appearance. Since it has several formulas, your treatment plan will be personalized to meet your concerns and goals. Restylane may help you address the initial signs of aging, such as fine facial lines, or increase the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It may also improve severe wrinkles, like frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Certain treatments have the anesthetic lidocaine so you need to share any allergies at your pre-treatment consultation to prevent a negative reaction.
"I get the Signature Peel with aesthetician Ashley and could not recommend her more highly. LOVE HER. She is so knowledgeable, sweet and calming...even though I’m getting a chemical peel she has me feel so relaxed like I’m getting a full massage. I’ve had peels at other high-end medspas but have never received better results than with Ashley. Based on her knowledge, skill and beautiful energy, I wholeheartedly give Ashley 5+ stars. She’s the best."- N.B. / Google / Jun 21, 2019
"Love this place! I just moved to the North Bay and so happy I found them! My first appt was with Melinda, at the peak of the PG&E power outages. Despite all the chaos going on with rescheduling patients from Santa Rosa, Melinda totally took her time on my lips and Botox. I absolutely love my lips! I've been getting them done for years. This is my favorite outcome so far. Aside from doing awesome work, Melinda was so sweet. Great experience!"- M.F. / Yelp / Oct 11, 2019

Restylane treatments are performed in the office at Allegro MedSpa of Novato. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for greater comfort if desired. The filler is injected in your skin with a fine-gauge needle and then massaged so it reaches the selected areas. Several injections may be performed followed by a cold compress to reduce inflammation. Every Restylane filler is injected with the same technique but on different areas treated based on your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect
Once your Restylane treatment is finished, you may resume normal activities. Your recovery period will vary based on what you are having treated so ask your injector about what you should expect. The treated areas may be slightly swollen and red, but this typically fades away within a day. Bruising may occur, but this may be camouflaged with cosmetics. It's suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for a day, and you should sleep with the head propped up for at least one night. Many patients will see visible changes right after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments typically last around one year based on the formula selected.
