Restylane is Doctor Olson’s preferred filler for the under-eye area, or “tear trough”.
Made from biodegradable hyaluronic acid, Restylane® is very similar to Perlane, but is more often used for facial wrinkles such as frown lines and downturned lip lines. The effects of Restylane® can be expected to last about 8 months to a year. Due to its safety and the potential longevity of its effects, Restylane® was the first FDA approved hyaluronic acid filler in the US. By filling in the hollow tear trough area, dark shadows under the eyes may be corrected. Doctor Olson is an orbital specialist with extensive knowledge and experience in periorbital and eyelid reconstruction and rejuvenation. She has published on the use of filling the “tear trough” under the eyes with Restylane.
Restylane Silk is the newest smoothest product to be FDA approved for lip shaping, enhancement and fine line treatment. Dr Olson uses Restylane silk to reflate older lips and lip lines for believable enhancement. It is also excellent for filling under eye tear troughs in thin skinned patients.
