San Antonio dermatologist Dr. Garcia offers a wide range of filler products to help correct signs of facial aging, such as deep lines, folds, and lost volume. It is one of the most popular brands of injectable wrinkle fillers because it treats several concerns with different formulas for long-lasting results. Restylane is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), giving the skin a natural, softer look that is more supple and full. A custom treatment plan can treat mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles, as well as add volume to the lips and cheeks. Sonterra Dermatology carries a selection of Restylane products, including:
- Restylane: Addresses facial wrinkles and folds
- Restylane Defyne: Fills in deep smile and laugh lines
- Restylane Kysse: Enhances texture, color, and volume of the lips
- Restylane Lyft: Adds volume and lift in the cheeks

Ideal Candidates for Restylane
Restylane treatments are great for any patient over the age of 21 who wants to improve their appearance. Since it has so many formulas, your treatment will be customized to fit your needs and concerns. Restylane can help you treat early signs of aging, including fine lines throughout the face, or boost the volume in your lips and cheeks. It can also treat moderate to severe wrinkles, like laugh lines, frown lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and more. Some formulas contain lidocaine so you should disclose any known allergies during your consultation to avoid a reaction.
"Great doctor. Short wait time. Great staff. Good results (I hope). "- B. / Demandforce / Mar 12, 2016
"I came here in February and had a wonderful experience. I only waited about 10 minutes and a lovely PA treated me. She was very warm and engaging, I really appreciated it because I was initially anxious and uncomfortable about the procedure. We laughed a lot and although the process was quite painful, she definitely made it more bearable. Will be following up soon for a second!"- B. / Google / Oct 23, 2020
"I’ve been coming here for about a year or so, I have to be honest, I haven’t had the best luck. Few times, including today, I wanted to give up and find a new place BUT I’ve meant the sweetest, caring, compassionate, hard working, goes out of her way to make things right......her name is Kim. She has gone above and beyond to take care of things that weren’t taken care of before. And for that I will continue to come, because I know I can count on her. Thank you Kim for caring about me as a patient and a customer. You have touched my heart with your listening ear, kindness and have always cared about my concerns. I wish everyone was like you! I’m grateful and thankful for you."- T.W. / Yelp / Jul 22, 2021

"Great first impression! I initially received a referral from my PCP to another dermatology clinic but, after reading some of the reviews and asking around, I made the decision to cancel that referral and find another clinic in my network. I chose this one based on the good reviews here and elsewhere. I was seen by Daniella Arellano PA-C for hair loss/thinning. She listened to everything I had to say and presented various options we could take. No pressure to dive balding-head first into some expensive procedure, but I am happy that I was presented with a few paths to pursue without ruling out any of them for future consideration. I even had some medical questions a week after my appointment so I called and left a message, and I received a call back the same day with answers.This was my first time at this office. It was very clean and everyone I encountered from check-in to check-out was very nice. Located on Sonterra ACROSS from the Methodist hospital - navigation kept wanting me to go TO the hospital!I have only given it 4 stars because I don’t know yet if the visit will fix my issue and I did not want to mislead anyone by giving the impression they can fix EVERYTHING immediately. Maybe they can... and then it will be a 5!"- S.O. / Yelp / Jul 14, 2021
Restylane Procedure Technique
Restylane injections take place inside the minor procedures room at Sonterra Dermatology. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if requested. The product is injected into your skin through a fine needle and massaged so it fills the needed areas. The injections are followed by a cold, gentle compress to help control swelling. Each Restylane product is administered the same way but on different areas of the face targeted according to your specific needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect from Restylane Injections
When your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to work. Your recovery will depend on what is being treated so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites will appear slightly red and swollen, but this usually goes away in a few hours. Bruising can be a factor, but this can usually be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid exercise for 24 hours and you should sleep upright for the first night. Most patients will notice some improvements immediately after treatment, but it may take 1 – 2 weeks before the final results appear. Restylane injections often last up to a year, depending on the exact product used.
Expected Cost of Restylane
Your cost for Restylane will vary based on many factors, including which formula is used, which area(s) is being treated, how much filler is needed, and more. During your consultation, your injector will listen to your concerns and goals before developing a personalized Restylane treatment plan. From there, your cost can be estimated and payment options discussed.
