Restylane® is a line of facial fillers that helps plump your cheeks and lips and smooth out wrinkles. Restylane was the first cosmetic dermal filler made using hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring sugar found in your body’s connective and neural tissue.
The Restylane family of products are versatile fillers which can be used for:
- Lip enhancement and plumping (adding volume and shape)
- Correcting crow’s feet (glabella lines)
- Cheeks and chin (shaping and contouring)
- Filling in tear troughs
- Filling in hollow temples
- Non-surgical nose job
- Correcting nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)
Once Restylane is injected into the skin, it helps stimulate the production of more collagen, adds temporary support to the skin’s structure, and replaces lost volume, resulting in smoother wrinkles and fuller lips. Patients enjoy immediate results in a single visit, and results typically last 10 to 12 months.
Pain is minimal since many of the Restylane products contain an integrated anesthetic, lidocaine, which helps provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience.
