Restylane® Injectable Filler – Las Vegas
Many options for enhancing facial volume and reducing deep wrinkling are available today with a wide variety of ready-to-inject fillers. Each filler has unique characteristics, which can be used to maximize your results. Dr. Mary Herte has extensive experience with all of the semi-permanent fillers and can guide your choice of filler to get you the best effects for each problem area.
Restylane® is a clear gel made up of Hyaluronic Acid (a naturally occurring substance found in our skin). It is approved by the FDA for filling deep folds and wrinkles. While most commonly used to fill in and soften the naso-labial folds (the fold from nose to mouth), Restylane® is an excellent choice for many other “off-label” uses.
Dr. Herte feels that Restylane® is a more structural Hyaluronic Acid filler and is best used for folds (marionette and naso-labial) as well as for filling in the hollows under the eye for a smoother and more rested look to the lower lid. Many patients also choose Restylane® for lip enhancement and to smooth the lines around the lip area.
Benefits include rapid recovery, less bruising and swelling than Radiesse®, ability to adjust your correction with a readily available dissolving enzyme, and use of a very small needle for injection.
Depending on the activity of the area corrected, Restylane® can last 6-9 months and after regular maintenance of your correction, Dr. Herte has seen product still present in the treated area for up to 12 months or longer.

For Your Safety:
Dr. Herte uses only genuine brand name aesthetic injectables, FDA approved for use in the United States, and purchased directly through the manufacturer.
The Herte Center for Cosmetic Surgery adheres to the strict Nevada Department of Health safety guidelines for single use vials and safe injection practice. For your safety, Dr. Herte does not allow vial sharing: each “single use” vial is used only for a single patient treatment.
FDA approved injectables may be used on a case by case basis for treatment for conditions that have not been approved during the FDA approval process. Dr. Herte may recommend such “off-label” treatment to a specific patient based on evaluation of the individual situation but discussion of such treatment should not be considered promotion of off-label procedures.
