Restylane® (Perlane®) in Melbourne, FL
Restylane ® is an advanced dermal filler treatment that contains hyaluronic acid. It not only reduces lines and wrinkles in the face but also slows down the aging process. Restylane® is administered with skill and precision by the team of specialists at Dermatology + Plastic Surgery, led by dermatologist Anita Saluja, MD, and double board-certified plastic surgeon Rebecca Novo, MD. We treat residents of Melbourne, Viera, Brevard County, the beaches, and surrounding areas in Central Florida. Dr. Saluja is currently limiting her skin cancer dermatology practice to her aesthetic/anti-aging patients and their adult family members. New patients for Dr. Saluja should have a referral from a current client. Dr. Saluja no longer accepts Care Credit as a form of payment.
We are skillful, artful and thoughtful in our injections. Additionally, we may use Accuvein vein finder to diminish the risk of bruising during the procedure, as well as advise you to use post-procedure Ocumend Gel Pads or Teoxane Deep Repair Balm to hasten recovery.
What makes Restylane® so popular?
Restylane® is an injectable treatment containing hyaluronic acid, a substance produced naturally in human skin cells that attract moisture and binds with water, helping the skin stay hydrated. The body reduces its production of hyaluronic acid as we age, so skin becomes dry and brittle, creating lines, wrinkles, creases, and folds. Restylane® delivers hyaluronic acid directly to skin cells beneath the skin’s surface to restore and maintain healthy hydration, making skin cells plumper and fuller, resulting in smoother skin with reduced wrinkles and lines.

Who should consider Restylane® injections?
Restylane® may be suitable for any healthy adult who wants to eliminate visible signs of aging in the face while augmenting the hydration of skin cells to achieve a continuously improved appearance. Restylane® is an excellent treatment option for people who want to address the following concerns:
- Crow’s feet
- Laugh lines
- Frown lines
- Marionette lines
- Vertical smoker’s lines around the mouth
- Sagging skin and wrinkles around the eyes
- Sunken cheekbones and loss of volume, definition, and elasticity in the cheeks
- Flat, thin, brittle lips
- Sagging skin and jowls in the jawline and chin area
What are the advantages of Restylane® injections?
Restylane® provides a safer and less invasive alternative to plastic surgery and may be combined with other procedures, often Dysport, to optimize results. The Restylane® gel is composed of natural, plant-sourced hyaluronic acid that mimics that produced by our own bodies and ensures biocompatibility with little to no risk of allergic reaction. As an added benefit, the body naturally continues to absorb hyaluronic acid over time, providing an ongoing improvement to the condition of the skin. Restylane® results typically last about 6 to 12 months when administered as a stand-alone treatment. No downtime or recovery period is required, though swelling and minor bruising is to be expected. Restylane® injections typically take under an hour to administer, and you may return to normal activities immediately afterward. We ask that you hold on strenuous activity, overheating, and manipulation to the treated area for the duration of the procedure day.
How are Restylane® injections administered?
A numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area to prevent any discomfort during treatment. The Restylane® gel is injected directly into the skin at strategic areas using a fine, small gauge needle or micro-cannula. You will see a visible improvement immediately following the treatment, and increased improvements over time as wrinkles diminish gradually and naturally thanks to increased hydration of your skin cells. For most patients, one treatment lasts about a year.
How should I prepare for Restylane® injections?
No real preparation is required for Restylane® treatment. Prior to treatment, your medical history will be assessed, and factors such as any other injections you may have received recently or any medications you may be taking will be taken into consideration. You may need to postpone Restylane® treatments if you have any infection or inflammatory or cystic acne until the condition clears up. Prior to the treatment, please inform us if you are on blood thinning medication or supplements or if you have a history of lip herpes.
