Portland, OR plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Bensimon and his aesthetic injectors offer a wide range of filler products, including Restylane, to help correct signs of facial aging, addressing lines, wrinkles, and lost volume. It is one of the most popular brands of injectable wrinkle fillers because it treats several concerns with different formulas for long-lasting results. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A custom treatment plan can address mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and cheeks. Bensimon Center carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Addresses facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Lyft: (Once known as Perlane) Adds volume and lift in the cheeks
- Restylane Refyne: Corrects moderate smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Silk: Adds volume in the lips and fills in vertical lip lines
Restylane treatments are great for any patient over the age of 21 who wants to improve their appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment will be customized to fit your concerns and goals. Restylane can help you treat early signs of aging, including fine lines throughout the face, or boost the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate to severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Some formulas contain lidocaine so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation with Dr. Bensimon to avoid a reaction.
"Perfection - After having broken my nose several years ago I decided to have a corrective rhinoplasty to fix the deformity and to soften the contour. Dr. Bensimon was my first consult following a minor rhinoplasty offered by insurance through an ENT after the accident (ENTs are NOT plastic surgeons and I should have insisted to have this done right the first time by someone qualified) which essentially was..."- M. / RealSelf / Mar 01, 2019

"Tummy tuck - I am 59 yrs old, 5’1” gal who 10 years ago weighed in at 200+ pounds. I am far more fit and strong now than I’ve ever been but my body shape has suffered. I’ve carried a large lower abdominal roll since puberty and with weight loss (down and held at 165#) and age, it began to drop.

Restylane injections take place inside the aesthetic treatment rooms at Bensimon Center. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if requested. The product is injected into your skin through a fine needle and massaged so it fills the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed, followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way but on different areas of the face to address your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
When your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to work. Your recovery will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this usually goes away in a few hours. Bruising can be a factor, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for the first night. Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after their treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injections often last up to a year, depending on the exact product used.
