"I completely trust Dr. Kelishadi after getting a restylane lip treatment done. He does everything he can to ensure that you're comfortable and that you end up with the results you wanted. My lips still look very natural and just a bit bigger which is exactly what I asked for. He did an incredible job, and I'm definitely going to come back for more and let all of my friends know about his work. His assistant Lindsey is extremely friendly and makes the environment such a positive one. She constantly checks up to make sure you got the exact results you wanted or if you want anything touched up which is lovely. SSK is the place to go; trust me!"- M.B. / Google / May 15, 2016

"Loving the results - I had a great experience with Dr. Kelishadi and his great staff (thank you Alejandra!) He really took the time to explain the procedure and to make me feel at ease. He was super patient with me and answered all my questions. He made me feel so comfortable since I was so nervous getting fillers for the first time underneath the eye area. Best of all I had no bruising after the injections..."- D. / RealSelf / Mar 12, 2018
"I came to Dr. Kelishadi to have some fillers in my face. When I met with him, I explained how I felt that I was starting to get jowling and it was making me look older than I am. He asked some questions about my lifestyle and determined that my face was not getting saggy, but rather that I had recently lost some weight and the fat pads in the marionette line area are the first to deflate. He recommended using fillers to correct the issue rather than having a lifting laser treatment. While I was in office, we ended up discussing my lips and had fillers there, too. If you are familiar with dermal fillers, you know that no matter what, the injections hurt; however, Dr. Kelishadi used an amazing numbing cream in me and I didn't feel any of the injections! I work in the cosmetic industry and have never used such an awesome numbing cream. Fast forward 1 week and my lips look amazing and he completely corrected the depressions in the area under my mouth!"- T.G. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2017
Both men and women are candidates for a Restylane injection, but you must be 21 years of age to receive this filler. If you have thin lips, noticeable lines at rest near our mouth and nose, or deep lines that form between your brows, Restylane can be used to fill in these areas so that a softer appearance resides on the surface. Restylane works great to augment the lips as well. So if you are unhappy with the fullness of your lips, this filler may be a great option for you. If you have sagging skin or desire a more dramatic or long-term outcome, a surgical procedure may be a better option and can be discussed during the consultation.
Restylane injections take place inside our minor procedures room. In most cases, we will apply a numbing ointment prior to the injection to help minimize discomfort. The product is injected into the skin through a fine needle, and messaged under the skin so that it properly fills the area that needs volume. Multiple injections will be needed and will be administered in layers, followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way. They just target different areas of the face according to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
After the injection process has been completed, you can return to work or resume normal activities. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this goes away in a few hours. Your recovery will depend upon what is actually being treated. For example, it generally takes 3 – 4 days for the lips to look and feel normal after lip augmentation. Bruising can be a factor in some areas, which may also lengthen the recovery. It is recommended to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright for the first night. The great news about Restylane, is that you will notice your results immediately after treatment. It make take 1 – 2 full weeks for the final results to take shape, but when they do, the face will appear fuller, softer, and smoother. Restylane injections, depending on the exact product used, can last up to a year or longer.
