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.
"Rhinoplasty - Scottsdale, AZ - I couldn't be happier with my new nose.I hated my nose for as long as I can remember, when I looked in the mirror or at pictures of myself that's all I saw. The first time I met with Dr.Holden he pin pointed my exact issues with my nose with out my having to tell him. He was very kind and patient and answered all of my questions. While talking to him it was obvious he knew what he was talking about and was an expert in his field. I felt so comfortable and confident with him that I canceled my other consultes (with another surgon I used in the past) and scheduled by surgery for the next week. Dr.Holden also saw me at every one of my follow up appointments, not some nurse, which was very important to me and helped with my post surgery anxiety. With being 34 years old and a mother of 3 it was very important to me for my new nose to look natural. It does. I am thrilled when I look in the mirror and the people close to me have all remarked how wonderful it looks. While people that I haven't shared my surgery haven't noticed or at least not enough to say "oh my gosh you got a nose job!" I still look like me. :)"- S. / RealSelf / Jul 30, 2015
"I Couldn't Be Happier! - Dr. Holden is a very talented physician. Not only is he exceptional at facial plastic surgery, he is kind, compassionate and caring. I am extremely pleased with my eye lift and face lift, I couldn't be happier. He makes you feel comfortable every step of the way explaining the surgery and recovery in detail. He has the best bed-side manner of any physician I've encountered!"- S. / RealSelf / Nov 28, 2018
"Dr. Holden for Rhinoplasty! - I had a rhinoplasty procedure yesterday, after years of wanting to have one, but not actively pursuing to do so. I wanted a small refinement to my profile. I chose Dr. Holden because of his warm and caring nature, and his close attention to detail. In the initial consultation and meeting with Dr. Holden, I knew I had chosen the right doc for the job.

"Dr. Paul Holden is a Very Gifted Plastic Surgeon. - Dr. Paul Holden is a fantastic plastic surgeon. I would highly recommend that anyone needing facial plastic surgery use him.

"Walking through the fear! - I initially went to talk to Dr. Holden in May of 2016 about straightening my septum and removing a bump on my nose from when it was broken when I was young. I got nervous and opted not to do it. A friend of mine went to see him for a similar surgery and went through with it. After seeing the results and the success that my friend had I opted to go through with it in March of 2017. Tonight I..."- B. / RealSelf / Sep 16, 2018
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 with Restylane®
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.
Restylane Alternative Fillers
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.
Restylane Expected Cost
The average cost for a syringe of Restylane is approximately $650, although this price may vary. The overall cost will be determined based upon how large an area is being treated, and the extent of wrinkles and lines being addressed.

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.
