Because it has several formulas, Dr. Chiddy will create a personalized treatment plan that addresses your concerns and goals. Restylane can help treat visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles, frown lines, laugh lines, Crow's feet, nasolabial folds, and marionette lines. For patients with hollow-looking cheeks or thin lips, it can also add volume to these areas.

"I have loved the treatments I have received from Dr. Chidester. He pays attention to fine detail, listens to your wants, needs, and desires, and explains everything very well, educating you along the way. He is very natural when it comes to filler and Botox, not over injecting, but applying the perfect amount to make your already beautiful self really shine!"- M.C. / Google / Apr 30, 2019

Our Injection Technique
Dr. Chiddy performs Restylane injections in a private treatment room. Using a fine-gauge needle, Dr. Chiddy injects the filler and gently massages the skin so it reaches the appropriate parts of your complexion. To achieve desired results, some patients may require several injections during their appointment. Immediately after your injections, we will apply a cold compress to help reduce the swelling and discomfort. No matter the type of Restylane formula we used, the injection technique is the same but on different parts of the face.
What to Expect
Once we have finished your Restylane treatment, you can resume your daily activities. Your treatment area might appear slightly swollen and red, but your symptoms should subside in about a day. You may also experience some bruising, which you can conceal with cosmetics. For 24 hours, Dr. Chiddy recommends avoiding strenuous activities and sleeping with your head propped up. Otherwise, you may run the risk of moving the filler into another part of the face. Most patients experience visible results right after their injections, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks before seeing the final results. Usually, Restylane treatments last about a year, but this can vary based on the type of formula used. Before you leave, we will provide detailed aftercare instructions and information about follow-up appointments.
How much does Restylane cost?
The cost of Restylane varies based on the amount used and how many areas need to be addressed with dermal fillers. Dr. Chiddy can listen to your concerns during a consultation and develop a custom plan based on your needs and budget. Our administrative team can also review different payment options to help make Restylane as affordable as possible.
Do Restylane injections hurt?
In truth, the answer depends on your personal pain tolerance and the technique used. There might be a little discomfort experienced during treatment but overall, you should feel relaxed while we administer Restylane into your skin. After the procedure, we may use a cool compress on the area to reduce side effects like swelling and bruising.
Will I look fake after Restylane?
Restylane injections do appear more natural than invasive options like plastic surgery, especially when performed by a skilled injector. This formula is designed to provide natural-looking fullness without obvious side effects or a "frozen" look. Our team in Draper can help you return to normal activities in just one day, which is impossible with surgical procedures.
