Wrinkles and thin lips can oftentimes be a sign of aging that many individuals wish to correct.  Hyaluronic acid is present in our skin naturally and holds 1,000 times its weight in water. Its high moisture content plumps up the skin. This substance is very abundant in babies' skin. Unfortunately as we age, the skin loses some of its hyaluronic acid and consequently, volume. Restylane ® is a cosmetic dermal filler known to reduce folds and creases in your face, as well as increase the volume of your lips in a safe and natural way. Since no foreign substances are injected into the body, more individuals prefer this procedure over other facial fillers, such as collagen injections.


This dermal filler is a non-animal, biodegradable gel that is injected into the body via tiny needles to help smooth out folds and creases around the eyes and mouth. It can also be injected directly into the lips to increase their volume and fullness. Restylane is similar to collagen in its wrinkle-plumping effects, but lasts much longer – six to 12 months.

Many doctors in Long Island and other places as well, like to combine Restylane with other wrinkle therapies like Botox. After the forehead and eyes are injected with Botox, the Restylane is added to diminish any leftover wrinkles. Doctors are excited about the many uses of Restylane therapy. It is useful for filling in depressions in the skin such as acne scars.  

Be sure to view before and after Restylane photos to see examples of patient results.

Cost of Restylane Injections

The average cost of this procedure in Long Island is $838. This may vary based on the number of injections necessary and whether other treatments are performed at the same time. A more accurate final cost can be determined during a consultation.
