What is Restylane?
Provo, UT board-certified physician Dr. Stuart B. Porter offers a wide range of filler treatments to address lost volume, age lines, and wrinkles. Restylane is one of the most popular brands of injectable dermal fillers because it treats multiple issues with specialized formulas for long-lasting results. It is made with a synthetic version of the body's natural hyaluronic acid (HA), providing the skin a softer, natural look that is fuller and more supple.

- Restylane Defyne: Fills in moderate to deep laugh and smile wrinkles

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

Our Injection Technique
Restylane treatments are performed in the office at Xage Medical Spa. A numbing cream can be applied for increased patient comfort if desired. The treatment is injected in your skin with a fine needle, and gently massaged so it reaches the needed areas. Multiple injections will be needed followed by a cold, gentle compress to reduce inflammation. Each Restylane product is administered with the same technique but on different areas treated to fit your unique concerns and cosmetic goals.
What to Expect with Restylane®
When your Restylane injections are complete, you can return to normal activities. Your recovery timeframe will depend on what you are having treated, so talk to your injector about what you should expect. The injection areas may be slightly red and swollen, but this often goes away within a day. Bruising can be a factor, but this may be concealed with makeup. It is recommended that you avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for at least one night. Many patients will experience visible improvements immediately after the procedure, but it usually takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results appear. Restylane treatments typically last around one year based on the formula selected.
