What can Restylane improve?

  • Thin lips
  • Hollow areas in the mid-face
  • Sunken areas around the eyes
  • Lack of volume in the cheeks
  • Moderate to severe lines, folds, and wrinkles 

How does Restylane work?

Restylane is injected underneath the skin to fill and volumize sunken or depressed areas and to make lines and wrinkles less visible. Restylane is made of a clear gel substance that contains hyaluronic acid, a naturally-occurring protein within the body that makes the skin plumper, more hydrated, more vibrant, and more youthful-looking. Dr. Maercks looks at each patient’s goals and areas of concern differently and personalizes every treatment plan to achieve optimal results. 

How much are Restylane treatments in Miami?

The average cost of Restylane from The Maercks Institute in Miami starts at $1000.

Restylane family of products

Restylane comes in several different variations of facial fillers to target certain areas and levels of severity:


The very first Restylane product is a mid-grade dermal filler designed to target moderate to severe wrinkles and nasolabial folds, the under-eye area, and thin lips. Results can last up to 10 months. 

Restylane Lyft

Restylane Lyft is one of the strongest facial fillers available. With the ability to support a lot of tissue, Restylane Lyft has outstanding lifting capability. It has been designed to raise drooping skin of the face, volumize deep wrinkles, and improve sunken areas of the face. It is also frequently used for the jawline and cheekbones. Restylane Lyft can last up to 18 months. 

Restylane Silk

Subtle yet powerful, Restylane Silk is ideal for targeting areas that require very precise improvement, such as the fine lines of the under-eye part of the face. The secret is that Restylane Silk is made of a very thin gel, and is frequently used to volumize areas of moderate hollowness. It is also used for natural-looking lip augmentation. Restylane Silk results can last up to 10 months. 

Restylane Kysse

Restylane Kysse is one of the very best facial fillers for the lips and mouth area. Not only can it deliver natural-looking plumpness to the lips; it has also been designed to enhance lip color, provide extra-flexible movement, and smooth “smoker’s lines” around the lips to achieve an overall rejuvenated look. Results from Restylane Kysse can last up to 12 months. 

Restylane Refyne and Defyne

If you have laugh lines, Restylane Refyne or Defyne are the ideal facial filler for you. Restylane Refyne has been created to improve moderate laugh lines. Restylane Defyne is similar, only it has been created with a thicker gel, which makes it ideal for improving laugh lines that are more severe. Both products may last for up to 18 months. 

What to expect during treatment

First, Dr. Maercks will carefully choose the injection site. He will then clean the area thoroughly. Using a special technique and a fine needle, he will then inject the Restylane solution just below the dermis. The gel will enter your skin and combine with your body’s natural hyaluronic acid, binding to water. 

After the injections have been completed, Dr. Maercks may massage the area to ensure that it’s even and smooth. Restylane contains lidocaine to minimize any discomfort during the injections (those with a known allergy to lidocaine should inform the doctor immediately). In certain cases, Dr. Maercks may use an additional numbing agent.

Recovery and results

Bruising or redness are common after a Restylane treatment, and the injection site may feel “full”. An ice pack will reduce swelling. Patients should avoid alcohol, exercise, heat, and sun exposure for 24 hours after treatment. Most adverse reactions will fade within one week. Restylane results can last anywhere from 6 to 12 months, depending on the patient. At that point, the patient’s natural metabolism will break the filler down and clear it away. Results can be maintained with touch-up treatments (using less filler) after the initial results fade.
