Restylane is a clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance, called hyaluronic acid. Restylane is considered a durable cosmetic filler that provides dramatic outcomes for the improvement of the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles, and folds. Restylane is a non-surgical solution to soften facial lines and wrinkles, restores volume and fullness to the skin, plumps up lips, and fills in scars.
Frequently Asked Questions
What can I expect from a Restylane treatment? Restylane is injected in small amounts with a tiny needle in order to fill lines, wrinkles, creases, or folds. It is commonly injected into the lip region to achieve ample lips, which creates an overall youthful appearance. This treatment can be performed at any time; no tests are necessary prior to treatment. The results of the treatment are evident immediately.
How long will the Restylane injection last? Restylane will last from anywhere between 6 months to 1 year, depending on the individual’s age, skin type, and lifestyle. Yearly “touch-up” treatments may be necessary to achieve desired results.
What should I expect after the treatment? Immediately following the procedure, individuals may experience mild redness, swelling or slight tenderness at the injection site. The discomfort is temporary, disappearing after several hours or within the next two days. The patient may resume normal daily activities immediately following the treatment. Results will be apparent immediately.
