Restylane® is a product whose main component is hyaluronic acid, something your body makes and breaks down on its own, with time. Within the Restylane® line there are a variety of products available to assist in facial contouring; including jawline slimming, cheek enhancement and under eye hollow correction as well as chin and lip augmentation. The Restylane® line also provides the only FDA approved HA filler for the dorsal hands, used to reduce signs of aging. Product selection is based upon consultation with one of our providers, Dr. Bunkis or our PA, Crystal Osborn. Each of the products in this line differ in longevity and purpose. We currently carry Restylane –L®, Restylane Refyne®, Restylane Defyne® and Restylane Lyft®.
In preparation for any injectable treatment, including fillers and Botox®, we recommend cessation of all non- essential blood thinning agents for two weeks prior to your appointment, unless directed otherwise by your physician. Do not consume red wine for 2 days prior to your injections. Do not take these products or participate in heavy physical activity for 2 days following your injections, for best results. Also, we require that you do not have any dental work performed, including cleanings, within 1 week before or after your injectable treatment.
"I wish I knew doctor B 10 years ago - Doctor B and his team are amazing, they make you feel like you are part of their family. Doctor B is very knowledgeable and he cares about every single patient. He make the patients feel very important and you have access to contact him anytime with questions or concerns. I am so thankful I found him, he has amazing hands and knows exactly what he is doing. He provides you with few options so you can make your own decision. Thank you for everything!"- N.V. / SmileReminder / Jul 29, 2017
"Dr. Bunkis is a professional and has a great relationship with his patients. He has a very caring and upbeat attitude and also a wonderful staff. You are #1 when in their care. Thanks to all the staff at Orange County Plastic Surgery."- M.S. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2019
"MD Bunkis performed a lower face lift for me as well as fat removal from lower eyelids. It's been two years and I could not be happier. I look 10 years younger - yet still look like me - no overdone look at all. Still sporty beachy and natural. He took away the drop that comes with hitting the big 6-0. Crystal does MINOR lip injections for me - nothing too much - no duck lips - just gentle replenishing of fullness that's been lost to ageing. Go there! Excellent office staff - you'll feel right at home."- S.B. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2019

I recommend them to everyone."- E.E. / Yelp / Jan 24, 2019
What to expect
During you initial appointment you will meet our providers and receive a consultation. They will sit with you to understand your goals and your history to best determine what injectables are best for you. Not all fillers for example, are intended to do the same job. Cheeks are treated differently than lips, differently than deep facial lines and wrinkles and so on. Your questions will be answered and an individualized plan will be created for you, based on your concerns and goals- keep in mind depending on the amount of correction you may require treatments over a period of multiple visits.
Restylane® products, like many types of filler, can cause some degree of swelling for up to one week after your treatment, as well as bruising. However, bruising can be minimized by preparing and following the tips listed above in the preparation section. There may be some redness to the skin following your injections and even small “bee sting” feeling bumps. All of these should improve within days- so please schedule your injectable appointment a week or two prior to any special occasion! Results and correction can be seen immediately, with final results about two weeks after your treatment.
We are often asked how long fillers last and really the true answer is- however long you maintain them! Some Restylane® fillers last longer than others (average is 4-18 months), just like other hyaluronic acid products. However, proper product stacking and maintenance can help you get the most out of your product and treatments!
