Discover what Restylane can do for you at Marotta MedSpa on Long Island, NY
Restylane® is an injectable used to treat wrinkles and enhance the lips to give your face a more youthful and supple look. It is one of the best non-surgical forms of facial rejuvenation and lip enhancement available today and can produce phenomenal, immediate improvements. You may never look like you did when you were 20, but you will definitely be the best version of your current self. Dr. Marotta and his high-skilled aesthetic team will guide you through the injectable journey to determine if Restylane® is right for you.
Restylane® is made of hyaluronic acid, which is found naturally in our bodies in joints and cartilage.
It is a soft, clear substance and is entirely biodegradable, which is one of the reasons why it is the most trusted lip enhancer available.
The effects of Restylane® lasted about six months, and recent clinical trials showed that at least 95 percent of patients tested retained correction 18 months later when the area was re-treated at five to nine months.
Restylane® has been used in the United States since 1994, and since being approved by the FDA, as a key component for over 20 million facial rejuvenation treatments, including many performed by Long Island facial plastic surgeon Dr. James Marotta. For patients wanting to enhance their appearance with subtle changes for an overall rejuvenated look, your aesthetic specialists or Dr. Marotta can help you discover your best treatment options.

Restylane® can be administered by one of our specialists on Long Island.
Topical anesthetics, ice, or local anesthetics can be used to eliminate any pain after the injections. Our expert injectors apply Restylane® to the areas needing improvement using tiny amounts at a time to ensure a smooth and even distribution. The lips are injected in a manner that produces adequate augmentation with the most natural results.
Immediately following injection, an ice pack will be placed on your face to soothe and minimize the potential for bruising or swelling.
You may have some redness or swelling at the injection site, although this usually dissipates rapidly, allowing most patients to return to work immediately following the procedure. If you have had a lip enhancement, swelling may be more pronounced and last a bit longer. However, the improvement in your appearance is immediate and will last six to eight months.

Dr. Marotta provides a numbing cream, or the injectable may contain Lidocaine to ease any discomfort. Most patients claim there is a slight pinch, but nothing too painful preventing them from having another treatment.
Complications with Restylane® are rare; however, some side effects include redness, bruising, and swelling. However, these side effects typically dissipate within one week.
Dr. Marotta or one of our aesthetic specialists will discuss and determine the price of your Restylane® treatment during your consultation. Every procedure is different based on each patient’s need, the number of areas being treated, and their overall aesthetic goal.
Restylane® is considered an elective treatment and is typically not covered by insurance. It is always advisable to speak with your insurance provider about your coverage options. Marotta MedSpa does offer payment and financing options for your convenience.
Restylane® treatments have been shown to last six to 12 months, but this depends on where your treatment was on your body, the type of Restylane® filler used, and how fast your body metabolizes the hyaluronic acid. You may want to have additional sessions to maintain optimal results.
