Restylane Treatment in Tijuana, Mexico

What is Restylane?

Restylane is an FDA-approved injectable filler that is composed of a biodegradable hyaluronic acid, the same main ingredient in Juvéderm and Voluma. At Vive Medical Spa, Dr. Sergio Verduzco uses Restylane to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles. The gel is introduced in the creases and folds of wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and eyes to create a rejuvenated and youthful contour.

This treatment is a wonderful option for patients who are looking for a noninvasive facial treatment that will not only address wrinkles but will also enhance facial volume.

Dr. Verduzco will be able to discuss all the benefits of the various facial fillers he offers during a patient’s consultation.


Restylane treatment is typically a quick and smooth process which involves precise injection where volume is needed. The practitioner will clean the face thoroughly and then mark the injection areas with ink. A fine needle delivers the solution into the skin gradually to reshape and gain youthful contours. The procedure is pain-free with the minimal discomfort of the injection prick that can be helped with a topical numbing cream that is applied prior to treatment.

The quantity that is injected depends on how much volume the injection site needs. If the cheek appears to sag, it is filled in until it creates a lifted appearance that is reminiscent of youth. The duration of treatment may last up to 30 minutes.

What to expect with Restylane

The results following a Restylane treatment are immediate. There may be swelling and redness around the treated areas, which will subside after several hours. Patients may resume work immediately but must avoid strenuous activities for about 24 hours.

They are also advised not to put any pressure on the face and keep the head elevated so that the filler settles well to achieve the intended contours. Results may last up to one full year. This procedure is safe to repeat to maintain the desired results. For most patients, this is about every 6 months.

Beyond Restylane

There are many filler options to consider today. In addition to other hyaluronic acid-based fillers, there are also some that contain calcium-based gels, collagen, and polylactic acid. A fat transfer using the patient’s own fat is also popular.

The ideal filler must have a function that best matches the patient’s condition. During the consultation, each filler will be discussed and chosen based on the area being treated and the patient’s cosmetic goal.



Restylane is commonly used for lip augmentation. The results are natural looking with a soft feel that patients love. FDA requires the patient to be at least 21 years old to receive the treatment.


This treatment is best used to fill in severe facial creases around the nose and the mouth. It is an effective volumizer for sagging nasolabial folds and marionette lines, or even to decrease jowls. 


Both correct different cosmetic issues. Surgical lifts are a better option for those whose skin has a significant loss of elasticity. Derma fillers are ideal treatments for those who still have a healthy skin tone, but are beginning to show facial aging symptoms such as fine lines, wrinkles, and hollow areas. During the initial consultation, the doctor will discuss in detail all of the options available and the best approach to achieve the patient’s aesthetic goals.
