Restylane (hyaluronic acid fillers) injections can make you appear many years younger and improve the appearance of your facial features by adding volume. Restylane is a soft tissue dermal filler used at our SpaMedica clinic in Toronto for facial contour augmentation, for lip enhancement, to add volume, and improve the appearance of wrinkles.
SpaMedica has some of the most experienced physician and nurse injectors, as well as the widest selection of dermal fillers in Canada. Each dermal filler injection treatment is customized to include the best possible combination of fillers that will give the most effective and long-lasting contour and shaping results. At the time of your consultation, your consult coordinator will review the best combination of dermal fillers to provide the results you are looking for.
SpaMedica is Canada’s largest, oldest, and most respected private cosmetic laser center. Why are there so many dermal fillers available? The answer is simple: using only one dermal filler may not give the best results. Superior soft tissue filler results are often only achieved by the customized combination of two or more of the dermal fillers products that work in different, yet synergistic and summative ways to achieve the best results, including:
● Bellafill (Artecoll)

It’s advisable for patients visiting our Toronto clinic to avoid any Aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication for at least a week before your treatment. Inform your doctor or specialist of any antibiotics or medications that you may be administering. Also, if you develop a cold sore, rash, or skin blemish of any kind before treatment, please consider rescheduling.
Most patients can expect to return to work the next day after treatment. However, depending on the amount of Restylane fillers used, some individuals may experience more swelling than expected. Gently icing the injection area immediately after the injection will help minimize any swelling or bruising you may experience. Arnica Montana, taken as directed before the injection may also help minimize bruising.
Avoid direct sunlight and excessive heat following your treatment to speed up the healing process and minimize the risk of inflammation. Our SpaMedica staff in Toronto will be happy to provide you with additional support in aftercare to ensure a speedy recovery.
1 Day After: Depending on how many injections you may require; some need to miss a day of work post-injection.
1 Week After: Some redness, inflammation, or bruising may take a week to subside. Limit sun exposure to prevent added swelling or bruising.
Your doctor can use a multifaceted method to reduce the discomfort you experience during Restylane injections. This allows you to endure the treatment well and appreciate the rejuvenating effects of this popular filler type. At SpaMedica we use laughing gas during soft tissue and dermal fillers, as well as laser treatments, ensuring the comfort of our clients.
There is a lot of misunderstanding and miscommunication around the use of laser or radiofrequency (RF) devices and dermal fillers, like Restylane. If the dermal filler or soft tissue filler has been placed deeply, just above the bone, then the use of a laser or RF device over top can be done without damaging the dermal fillers or decreasing its life span or longevity.
However, if the dermal filler is placed or injected very superficially, within the actual skin or just under it, then treating with a laser, radiofrequency device or another energy-based device over top of that skin may, in fact, cause the dermal filler to break down and thus, should be avoided.
Your SpaMedica doctor and/or injection nurse may select different fillers for different areas of your face. Restylane is very good for injections under the eyes and lips, as there is often less swelling than other products (but also less longevity).
