Restylane is a hyaluronic acid (HA) filler approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and administered by our double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Asaf Yalif, at Y Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery. Containing HA, the substance is safely and effectively absorbed into the skin since it’s naturally found in the body. Restylane is a family of injectable fillers that work to counteract the effects of aging, as well aid in hydration and adding volume to smooth out and plump up various areas of the face. With its unique formula, Restylane spreads out beyond the injection site to treat wrinkles that are close together between the nose and mouth (nasolabial folds). Dr. Yalif also uses Restylane for lip augmentation.
The best candidates for Restylane:
- Are over 21
- Have moderate to severe lines, wrinkles, and folds near the mouth and between the mouth and nose
- Have thin lips and desire fuller lips
- Desire long-term results
- Desire natural-looking results

"Dr. Y and his staff are incredible. First class from initial meeting to my final release appointment. I’ve worked for a Plastic Surgeon, and have gone to several in the Atlanta area. Dr. Yalef by far surpasses them all, hands down. Dr. Yalef bedside manner, compassion are the best in Atlanta. Dr. Yalef’s Team are equally skilled in their professionalism, ease of their care & compassion for you. Dr. Y thank you from the bottom of my heart for my new look! Love you and your Team!!!????"- K.E. / Facebook / Oct 16, 2017
"Dr Yalif and his staff are A+ in my book. From the very first visit (May 2017) until now (October 2017) they all were professional, attentive,caring, truthful, and accommodating. He did a wonderful job on my necklift. And continues to care for me during the healing process. Before you decide on a plastic surgeon, you owe it to yourself to consult with Dr. Yalif."- S.W. / Google / Oct 16, 2017
"I was very scared to my appointment... crying to my husband scared, my injury is very tender and painful. Dr. Y has such great bedside manner, he was gentle and handled my hand injury with care....his staff were so kind, they even held my baby. I would highly recommend him. I am not scared of my next appointment, at all."- W.D. / Facebook / Oct 12, 2017
"I have been seeing Dr. Y for several years now and am always pleased with my results. Since beginning treatments with Dr. Y I have moved to the Nashville area but still commute to the Alpharetta location for my regular appointments because Dr. Y has given me honest input on what I need and is light-handed in his approach. I look forward to getting my mommy-makeover done here as well."- D.T. / Google / Oct 09, 2017
What to Expect
Restylane is administered as an in-office procedure and shouldn’t require additional numbing since a numbing agent is already mixed in. The doctor will determine the appropriate dosage and mark the appropriate injection site(s). Restylane will be administered with a fine needle to fill in the lips or the folds between the nose and mouth. The treatment takes around 30 – 45 minutes to complete. There will be no downtime after an injection.
After a treatment, patients may experience a tingling sensation and redness. Effects are immediate and can be quite long-lasting. For lip augmentation, the results can last for around 6 months. When used to treat lines, wrinkles, and folds, Restylane can last up to 1 year.
