For patients seeking a nonsurgical skin rejuvenation wrinkle treatment, Restylane is a popular choice among our Dallas area patients. Dr. Steven J. White uses this injectable filler to smoothen out wrinkles and creases on the face and is especially fond of using it in the lips to produce a fuller, plumper effect. Composed of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is safe and effective to use on the face, and the results are seen immediately once injected. Because this product does not spread from the injection site, it is perfect for distinct and precise lines. It is used to fill in laugh lines, cracks between the eyebrows (the number “11”), and to fill in the lips. Restylane injections can last for up to 6-9 months.

"For years I had struggled with getting rid of my belly and constantly felt defeated. I am 30 years old and for the most part am very active. I worked out six days a week and tried ever diet out there .I still could not get the results I wanted. I finally decided in May of this year to make a consultation .I choose Dr. White because he performed liposuction and breast augmentation on my mother 15 years ago and did an amazing job. Therefor I went in met with Dr.White and literally 2 hours later scheduled my operation for liposuction of the stomach and arms for six months later. I walked out of his office feeling so ensured and excited for what was to come. I am not going to lie I was very skeptical for 2 reasons. One I had never had surgery and the second did not know what to expect. Nevertheless surgery day came and I could not have felt more excited. From the hospital staff to Dr. White I had never felt more comfortable and assured. Dr.White literally walks you through ever step and takes such pride in his work. The surgery went amazing there was literally no pain at all and 3 weeks out of my surgery I was in a bodysuit for Halloween. It’s been two months since my surgery and I cannot explain how happy I am with my results. My friends ask me if I would do it again and the answer is YES!!!!!!"- C.B. / Google / Dec 12, 2018
"I found Dr. White's office after doing some online research into different cosmetic surgeons due to my interest in having a breast augmentation. I was immediately drawn to Dr. White not only because of the great reviews he had but also because of all of the photos that showed his awesome work. I wanted to know more! From the moment I stepped into his office, which is beautiful and has an extremely professional feel in itself, I was greeted by friendly staff who made me feel welcome and shared with me everything I wanted to know about the procedure. I was shown videos where Dr. White discussed every step of the procedure and how his work is different from others. I met Dr. White and was happy to see that he is just as personable and welcoming as his staff! I initially went in with only questions and came out 100% sure that I was in good hands and booked the appointment for my procedure that day! The whole process, from consultation to post-op checkups has been easy as can be, including my short time in the hospital before my procedure and my time in recovery. I was initially nervous about how much pain I would be in while trying to care for my young daughter and an 80lb dog, and then going back to work, but my recovery was just as Dr. White and his staff promised, much easier than I thought, as long as you follow their instructions for recovery. This is so important, and they explain every little step along the way. Dr. White may be doing the procedure, but recovery is a team effort and something he strives to help you understand. I was never left to feel confused or not cared for and am now five weeks post-op and LOVING my new self! Other than the pain, another fear I had was going through with the procedure and not looking or feeling natural. I obviously didn't want to look silly in the end and regretting my decision, but it was the total opposite. My breasts look natural, feel natural, and move naturally! The more time that passes, the more I feel like they've always been there, meant for my body. Though I loved myself regardless, childbirth left me missing my breasts before kids, and my time spent in the gym also chipped away at that area. Thanks to Dr. White and his staff and their superior knowledge (including the reasons behind why he does the procedure a specific way and the best ways to recover), my confidence in my appearance has sky rocketed and I am so excited to show off his work! Regardless of the procedure, if you're thinking about having work done for whatever reason, I would highly suggest Dr. White! My sister, who had a breast augmentation years ago by another doctor, continues to make comments about how my recovery was so much faster and easier than hers, and she looks forward to going to Dr. White in the future! I am forever thankful for their thorough care all the way!!"- E.M. / Google / Feb 27, 2021
"I put off having my "tummy sculp" for years because I was afraid of the recovery period after surgury. In a prior abdominal surgury, I was extremely nausiated with vomiting which caused severe pain. With Dr. White, however, my pain was fully controlled and I was given the appropriate amount of nausia medications. Dr White and his staff were personable, professional, and extremely knowledgeable about the "tummy sculpt" procedure and they explained everything evey step of the way. From the very first time I saw the results, I was ecstatic. I am now almost six weeks out and things keep getting better and better. I would highly recommend Dr. White and his staff if you are thinking of having this procedure."- T.L. / Google / Feb 24, 2021
"Dr. White is the only doc I would ever trust. He does immaculate work and my wife has never felt better about herself. Great bedside manner and very professional."- M.K. / Google / Feb 21, 2021
"I had been wanting to do a BA for 4 years. I was eager but very nervous to go through with surgery. From the moment I met Dr. White I knew he was going to be my surgeon. He was funny, intentional, knowledgeable, and he made me feel very comfortable. He gave me more than enough information with a whole booklet of answers and directions for prepping for surgery. I never had a feeling of not knowing what I needed to do and i never felt more safe under his care. I loved his staff as well, especially Melanie who has been there for every pre and post op appointment. After surgery there wasn't pain and I had no bruising what so ever. Dr. White takes his time during surgery and after to make sure you heal your best. It has been 6 weeks since my surgery and my incisions are so thin and are healing nicely. I am so happy with the results that I catch myself staring in the mirror. I bought so many new tops that I now feel so confident wearing. If you are looking for quality Dr. White is your man!"- M.R. / Google / Jan 31, 2021
During your appointment, the areas of the injection sites will be marked and thoroughly cleaned prior to the treatment. With the comfort of local anesthesia, the Restylane filler will be injected into the skin using a fine needle where added volume is desired. After each injection, light pressure and a cooling ointment are applied. Other than feeling a tingling sensation and some visible redness in the areas of the injections, there are usually no other side effects. Most patients are able to return to work with no downtime after their 15-30 minute Restylane procedure.
What to Expect?
The results following a Restylane injection will be seen immediately and can last up to a full year. Patients are generally thrilled with the fast-acting, visible results that the injections provide.
While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.
The overall cost will be determined based upon how large an area is being treated, and the extent of wrinkles and lines being addressed.

Is Restylane Good for Lips?
Yes, Restylane is a common derma filler used to add volume to the lips. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to 6 months.
Best Place for Restylane?
A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as nasolabial folds and laugh lines. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward.
How Often Do I Treat Myself?
Most results will last a full year, however some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have another injection at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
