Restylane®:

Restylane® is a natural, synthesized, and fully degradable FDA-approved hyaluronic acid. Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. It is injected into the skin to lift the lip, smooth wrinkles, or fill in a fold in the skin.

Once in your skin, the gel creates volume, resulting in a more healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip, it can restore a more natural and sensuous look. In contrast to other biodegradable implants, Restylane® filler is not extracted from animals. This means there is no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, it is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.

Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body and therefore it also dissolves naturally with time and is integrated into your body’s tissues. The effects of wrinkle fillers such as Restylane® can last months.

The treatment is performed by injecting Restylane® under your skin. Since no pre-test is needed, your procedure can usually be done in less than one hour. Many patients like the added comfort provided with an anesthetic cream, while others prefer an anesthetic block. This makes the treatment relatively painless.

Restylane® filler is used for:

  • Fillilng fine lines on the upper and lower lip
  • Filling Deeper wrinkles and folds in the cheek areas (these are the nasolabial, melolabial lines at the corners of the mouth)
  • Lip enhancement has up to twice the longevity of standard collagen implant treatments.

You Can Expect:

  • Some patients may experience slight bruising at the injection site, which can be covered with a little makeup.
  • If the lips are treated, initial swelling and tenderness may occur within the first few days, but subsides after 2 or 3 days.
  • Resume normal activity immediately
  • Minimal discomfort
  • Depending on the area treated, Restylane® can last up to 6 months or longer.
