As we age, the face loses volume resulting in a loss of definition and sagging the facial skin. This is secondary to the loss of a combination of fat and bone.
Restylane is a facial dermal filler that is used to enhance facial features. It can be used in patients who want to improve their facial balance or have lost volume secondary to the aging process.
Restylane is composed of hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance in the human body.
Our highly trained team, including Dr. Kulbersh, board-certified physician assistant Heather Bryant, and board-certified nurse practitioner Courtney Whitley, safely and effectively uses Restylane for our patients at Carolina Facial Plastics in Charlotte.
The top aesthetic destination of the south, Carolina Facial Plastics, is led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Jonathan Kulbersh. With his team of cosmetic experts, a fully accredited surgery center, and a private recovery retreat all located in the heart of SouthPark, Carolina Facial Plastics is known for unparalleled and natural-looking results exclusively for the face.
Restylane consists of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that composes the extracellular matrix in the body.
The extracellular matrix is responsible for supporting the cells of the body. Since Restylane is composed of a naturally occurring substance, it is safe for all patients to undergo.
Restylane is commonly injected into the following facial regions:
- Tear trough or under-eye bags
- Smile lines
Patients always want to know what their options are if they do not like their Restylane.
Restylane can be injected with an enzyme, hyaluronidase, which instantaneously dissolves all of the filler.
If a patient doesn’t like how they look after getting Restylane in North Carolina, it can be easily removed.
This is a difficult question to answer because Restylane is absorbed by the body at different rates.
Dr. Kulbersh tells people the real question is how often you need to have Restylane injected to maintain your results. Most of his patients like to have the area re-injected after 60% of the Restylane has been absorbed.
Depending on the area of the face, this will be every 6-12 months. Areas of the face that move more frequently, like the mouth, will dissolve the Restylane faster than non-mobile areas (temples).

Frequently asked questions
Restylane is a safe product and can be injected anywhere in the face. Some areas are more sensitive to injections than others due to the thinness of the skin.

What is unique regarding the technique to inject Restylane in Charlotte at Carolina Facial Plastics?
Restylane has been traditionally injected with a needle. A needle is painful, traumatic, and can cause bruising. At Carolina Facial Plastics, we inject Restylane with a blunt-tipped micro-cannula. The micro-cannula causes less trauma resulting in a more comfortable experience and less risk of a bruise.
