With results lasting up to one year, the noninvasive injection, Restylane, offers a rejuvenating localized treatment for wrinkles and fine lines with no downtime or allergy testing required. Hyaluronic acid is a natural chemical structure found in the body, making Restylane a safe and effective F.D.A. approved product that our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Holden and Dr. Tsujimura prefer when they need more precision. Restylane does not spread to other areas when injected, which makes this filler effective for areas that have precise lines, such as on or around the lips.
"Talented and personable - I have been considering Dr. Holden for a facelift and wanted to start with something less invasive - a chance to build trust I guess. After 2 syringes of Restylane so artfully injected I look at least 5 years younger, I will never again have someone less qualified than a cosmetic surgeon injecting anything into my face. As for the facelift, I was committed to having the work performed in Chicago but now know I can stay here in Phoenix and recuperate in my own bedroom instead of a hotel. The only problem...Dr. Holden produced such great results with Restylane, I'm not sure I need a facelift yet. Sorry doc!"- Anonymous / Vitals / Oct 30, 2011
"Experienced Cosmetic Patient- Cellfina Review - First, let me say my review is geared at the Cellfina treatment itself, not Dr. Holden. Dr. Holden has a great bedside manner, is patient, and wants his patients to have the best results possible. As for the Cellfina treatment, this was by far the most painful cosmetic procedure I’ve had, and I’m no rookie. I started Restalyne injections (without lidocaine) at 27 yrs old, I’ve had a BA, r..."- A. / RealSelf / Jun 26, 2018
"Restylane Lyft Gave Me the Lift I Needed. - After getting sick a few years ago, I noticed my face had lost weight. My temples had dips and had lost volume in my cheeks making me look sickly. Having worked in a cosmetic dermatologist office, I decided to visit a experienced plastic surgeon to discuss my options. I'm so glad I saw Dr. Holden. After a great consultation, he recommended Restylane Lyft to my cheeks and temples. I'm happy to say my confidence is back and I recommend Dr. Holden and anyone looking to get a lift discuss Restylane with their physician."- L. / RealSelf / Mar 28, 2017
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the comfort of local anesthesia, the Restylane filler will be injected into the skin using a fine needle where added volume is desired. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.
What to Expect
The results following a Restylane injection will be seen immediately and can last up to a full year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide.
While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.

Best Filler for Lips?
Restylane is one the more popular derma fillers used to add volume to the lips. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to 6 months.
Best Place for Restylane?
A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward.
How Often Do I Treat Myself?
Most results will last a full year, however some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have another injection at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
