What is Restylane?
Restylane is a dermal filler that is great for those older than 21 years old who are looking to address lines, wrinkles, and lost volume in their face. Using a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), this injectable gives our Body Bar MD patients a softer complexion and natural appearance. Performed in either our Carmel or Terre Haute, IN office, Restylane can help you treat moderate to severe wrinkles, like laugh and frown lines, Crow's feet, marionette lines, and more. With multiple formulas, Restylane can give you a unique result since it can treat multiple areas of concern.
Restylane is used to correct wrinkles and folds in the face.
Restylane Defyne is used to minimize deep smile and laugh lines.
Restylane Lyft lifts and creates volume in the mid-face.
Restylane Refyne is used to treat moderate smile and laugh lines.
It's important to share any allergies you have with Dr. Christy as Restylane does contain lidocaine. During your procedure, we will have you relax in one of our procedure rooms while we inject the Restylane formula into your treatment areas, followed by a cold compress to reduce swelling and ease any pain. This is a relatively quick treatment, between 15 minutes and an hour, that will get you back to your regular routine right after the procedure. Results typically appear after 1 – 2 weeks and last about a year.

"I have been to Body Bar MD for 3 visits with a practitioner named Jennifer. I am an older woman who was somewhat skeptical but nevertheless interested in regaining quality of life characteristics I once took for granted. I sincerely tried modern medical advice, nutrition, exercise and other lifestyle changes. Not wanting to give up and call it “well it’s just old age”. I decided to commit to the service I am receiving at Body Bar for 1 year. I am 4 months in and feel very different. My energy level has improved, I suffered from mild depression and that has truly lifted. I enjoy the holidays more than ever without stress. I sleep better. And my husband who’s a nice guy is even a nicer guy. I’m very pleased with my services I’m receiving, all staff are very friendly and professional.
