Restylane is a clear gel that is made with hyaluronic acid that is specifically made to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. This helps to instantly and visibly reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds by adding volume and fullness to the skin. Areas of the face that can be treated with restylane are your laugh lines (lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth), the area above the upper lip and below the nose; the corners of your mouth; and marionette lines (area that extends from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Restylane is also used to add fullness and definition to your lips. It is the only FDA-approved product for lip enhancements in patients over 21 years of age.
What To Expect:
Injections can be performed in a simple office visit. Our doctors will inject the areas of the mouth that need to be treated. There may be some discomfort during and after the Injection, but it is very minimal. You may have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness, but it is typically mild and normally last less than 1 week in nasolabial folds and less than 2 weeks in the lips. Results are instant and last up to 10 months in the wrinkles and folds and up to 8 weeks in the lips. This treatment requires no downtime.
