What is Restylane?
Restylane injectable wrinkle fillers, including Restylane Silk and Restylane Lyft, treat moderate-to-severe lines and wrinkles as well as improving age-related volume loss in the face.

Dr. Mentz and his certified nurse injectors determine the best type of dermal filler during your consultation after listening to your needs, concerns, and cosmetic goals.
"Dr. Mentz is nothing short of a magician. I went to him for an abdominoplasty in November of 2015 and his work has been life changing. His "bedside manner" is equal to his skill. I did not, for one moment, feel spoken down to or intimidated by his brilliance. He was kind, professional and has a great sense of humor. This man is an artist."- J.R. / Facebook / Aug 16, 2017
"Dr. Mentz and his staff are the best! I have been a patient of Dr. Mentz for about 15 years now and will continue to use his facility because there are many different services available. I am almost 71 years old and people always tell me that I look so much younger than my age. Thank you Dr. Mentz Janet L."- J.L. / Yelp / Feb 27, 2020
"I was a client of his 25 years ago when he did my nose and a bit of lipo. I have thoroughly enjoyed my nose after all these years. It was a tricky surgery, as I had broken it before in a riding accident. Now, 25 years later, I am going back to fix my breasts. I can't say enough good things about him; Many of my friends and clients went to have their surgeries with him after seeing my results and they had no problems."- L.W. / Yelp / Feb 03, 2020
"This Dr and staff are awesome. The offices and care are all first class."- M.N. / Facebook / Dec 21, 2019
"Dr Mentz is an incredibly talented and gracious doctor! With Wonderful bedside manner! He was able to work magic with a rhinoplasty revision from the previous botched nose job I had received from a doctor before him. My nose looks better than it ever has!! He also did a breast augmentation. Upsizing my 10 yr old implants from saline to silicone and a larger implant. And I finally have the breasts I always wanted!! And a testament to his generosity and commitment to perfection, originally I had a smaller implant chosen and after the original surgery was not happy with the size after all. Dr Mentz was kind enough to allow me to go back under the knife only a couple of days after the initial surgery and obtain the larger implants I desired...FREE OF CHARGE!! Only charging me for the price of the implants. His compassion and understanding made me feel like he really cares and his commitment to perfection rivals my own I am about to have a Brazilian butt lift done with him in a month or two and I am so excited!! Because I know what a talented doctor he is!! I would not entrust my body or face to another doctor EVER AGAIN! If your looking for your "happily ever after", look no further! Thank you again Dr Mentz!! For making me feel (and look) whole again!!"- C.B. / Yelp / Oct 03, 2019
Restylane Silk and Lyft Procedure Technique
Restylane is injected with an ultra-fine needle into the needed areas with or without the addition of a local anesthetic, like lidocaine. A Restylane treatment can usually be performed the same day as the patient’s consultation and generally takes 15-30 minutes. The results of Restylane Lyft usually last 9-12 months, depending on the treatment area. When used regularly, the results of Restylane SILK in the lips usually lasts 3-6 months, while other areas of the face, results can last 6-9 months. After the treatment, patients can resume their normal activities, but they should avoid touching the face for 6-24 hours.

What is Restylane Lyft?
Formerly known as Perlane-L®, Restylane Lyft is used for cheek augmentation, by improving volume in the midface, and filling in moderate-to-severe wrinkles and folds. Restylane Lyft is best for the "parentheses" or nasolabial lines around the mouth, enhancing the contours of the cheeks, and plumping the midface.
What is Restylane SILK?
Restylane SILK is specially formulated for lip enhancement and to smooth the lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane SILK uses smaller, smoother particles than the rest of the Restylane family of injectables, which makes it ideal for natural-looking results along more precise lines.
What Are the Side Effects?
Some patients may experience mild side effects after their Restylane treatment, including temporary redness, swelling, bruising, and tenderness for 7 – 18 days. Patients should avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication, St. John’s wort, and vitamin E before and after a treatment to minimize bruising.
How long does Restylane last?
The Restylane Regimen is a treatment plan for correcting moderate to severe lines and wrinkles and keeping the results. After the initial treatment, patients should schedule touch-up treatments every 4 – 9 months. Eventually, patients will begin to notice that their results last longer, in some cases up to 18 months.
