What is Restylane?
Let's address the fullness of your lips or your signs of aging with a Restylane consultation at Aldona J. Spiegel, M.D. Facial skin aging, wrinkles, lines, and lost volume can be treated temporarily with injections of Restylane (made with synthetic hyaluronic acid or HA). Restylane is a popular brand of dermal filler injections because it treats several concerns with different formulas for long-lasting results.

DO I qualify for Restylane?
If you want to refresh your aging appearance, Restylane dermal fillers are suitable for any man or woman who is older than the age of 21. Since Restylane has so many formulas, your treatment will be personalized to meet your needs. Restylane may help you correct early signs of age, including fine facial lines, or improve the fullness in your cheeks and lips. It can also treat moderate or severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, nasolabial folds, and more. Some formulas are mixed with lidocaine so you need to share any allergies at your consultation with Dr. Spiegel to avoid a reaction.
"I cannot recommend Dr Spiegel and her team more highly. I attended her clinic when having trouble with uncomfortable implants after a previous mastectomy. Dr Spiegel suggested DIEP procedure and I was really not sure. Over the coming months both she and her team explained the procedure, the benefits and results and implications. I decided to go ahead and I could not be more happy with the results. I look like I would have done pre mastectomy. I have been amazed by the continued care and concern of the whole team from the finance folk to the clinic nurses and doctors and their absolute pleasure in seeing my delight. A fantastic experience and I can't thank them enough."- C.A. / Google / Aug 01, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel and her wonderful staff got me through the most difficult experience of my life. Going through mastectomy and DIEP flap reconstruction is traumatic. I chose her over other Houston area surgeons and felt that I could trust her. Everyone in her office supported me each step of the way. First, and foremost, this is a major surgery and you rely on medical excellence to avoid important risks. She is a perfectionist regarding medical safety. Next, her artistry is outstanding. She got the best result that could be possible. Finally, if you have radiation, it is a long journey of several years to get from the beginning to end of the process, involving a year of a temporary expander before the final reconstruction. It is important to have a team that you can have that trusting supportive relationship over time. I feel very lucky and grateful that I was in the hands of this wonderful group of highly skilled women."- L.S. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel was highly recommended by my oncologist. It had become necessary that I look into reconstruction and a lymph node transplant. Dr. Spiegel does amazing work. She loves what she does and it shows in the results that she achieves. I am very happy that I chose her for this journey! Her support staff are wonderful to work with as well!"- D.M. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel is my guardian angel and I owe her and her entire team and staff a debt of gratitude that I will ever be able to repay! I am one year out from my original Diep flap surgery with her and I feel great- like myself again! After undergoing a prophylactic mastectomy ( due to testing positive for the BRCA 2 gene and strong family cancer) and getting breast implants with another doctor, Dr. Spiegel saved my life by removing the implants and performing Deip surgery. The implants cased me so much pain and diminished my quality of life but now I have it back. I have no more pain and my breasts are soft again and created from my very own tissue. Thank you Dr. Spiegel!"- J.A. / Google / Jul 08, 2019
"Dr. Spiegel is simply fantastic. I am so grateful to her and her whole staff (Alexis/Nicole/Lisa/Aidee/Angie) for the wonderful care and support given to me from my very first visit to their office. Dr. Spiegel is so thorough that during the course of my visits, she insisted that I consult a GI doctor for my distended stomach. Turns out that I had an H Pylori infection for which I had to be treated. No other doctors had ever looked past their specialties to treat the whole individual, and I am 59 years old. Subsequently, Dr. Spiegel pushed for an endoscopy, and it was discovered that I had an ulcer for which I was treated. From cardio work up, lab tests to chest xrays, Dr. Spiegel ensured that I was in top shape for surgery and made sure that I understood all aspects of the procedure and treatment.During my stay at the hospital, Dr. Spiegel, Alexis, Nicole, Dr. Arroyo, and Dr. Vo infused me with so much strength, support and kindness that I have no words to express my gratitude and appreciation. It's been one month since my surgery and I'm feeling good, healing very well and going back to work next week. Awesome doctor and wonderful staff."- R.L. / Google / Jun 08, 2019
During Your INjections
Restylane dermal filler injections take place inside our office at Aldona J. Spiegel, M.D. A numbing cream may be put on the treatment areas for increased comfort if desired. The filler is injected into your skin with a very fine needle and then massaged so it reaches the needed areas. Several injections will be performed, followed by the placement of a cold, gentle compress to reduce swelling. Each Restylane product is administered with a similar technique but may be in different areas, according to your unique needs and goals.
REcovery with Restylane
When your Restylane injection session is complete, you may return to work. Your recovery will depend on what you are having treated so ask your injector about what you should expect. The injection sites will appear slightly swollen and red, but this usually goes away in a few hours. Bruising can occur, but this may be camouflaged with makeup. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous activities, like exercise, for 24 hours, and you should sleep with your head propped up for the first night. Most patients will notice some improvements right after treatment, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results appear.
