What is Restylane®?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines — the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition
“I was really amazed. I could see results right away—with the lines being gone.”
After your treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness. This will normally last less than seven days in the nasolabial folds.
“I noticed my smile lines were getting deeper. Now people say I look too young to be a grandmother.”
Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
“The lines prior to Restylane were deep. I hated the way they looked.”
Rarely, the doctor may inject into a blood vessel, which can damage the skin.
Restylane or Restylane-L give you a level of lip enhancement that cannot be achieved with over-the-counter cosmetic products.
Patients should be limited to 1.5 mL per lip per treatment. If a volume of more than 3 mL total is needed to achieve optimal correction, a follow-up treatment session is recommended.
Made of a clear gel with a unique formulation, Restylane or Restylane-L can provide the fullness and definition needed to create lips that are just right for you.
To avoid bruising and bleeding, you should not use these products if you have recently used drugs that thin your blood or prevent clotting.
