Instantly and visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles with Restylane®.
Restylane® is a safe and effective injectable treatment designed to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane® injections help patients achieve smooth, more youthful skin. This treatment can be used to improve the following:
- Lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds, or “laugh lines”)
- The area between the nose and upper lip
- Lines around the mouth
- Lines downward from the corners of the mouth (“marionette lines”)
- Lip fullness and shape
- Tear troughs at the cheek and eyelid junction
Restylane® is made up of a clear gel formation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s naturally produced hyaluronic acid, which adds youthful fullness to the skin. As a result, the injection of Restylane® into specified areas will smooth moderate to severe wrinkles or folds and enhance volume.
Restylane® injections usually take less than an hour. The exact treatment time will depend on the individual and their desired area(s) of correction. The clear gel formula is injected into the treatment area(s) using an ultra fine needle in order to create smooth, natural-looking results.
Patients can expect little to no downtime. Commonly, patients may experience swelling, pain, redness, bruising, and tenderness post-treatment. These side effects will likely be mild and only last up to seven days.
The ideal patient undergoing Restylane® injectable treatment is over the age of 21 and does not have a history of bad allergies, specifically to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria. Potential patients will also be evaluated based on whether they have allergies to any of the ingredients in Restylane®.
The injectable gel will instantly lift facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume, which restores youthful contours. Restylane® patients can expect a younger, more refreshed facial appearance.
For the best results possible and a fresher look, Restylane® follow-up treatments are recommended every four to nine months. The frequency of repeat treatments needed will vary depending on the individual patient and the treatment area.
