Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
How Does Restylane® Work?
Restylane® is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or your lips. Restylane® effects generally last six months and gradually disappears from the body. If you are treated again at 4 1⁄2 or 9 months after your first treatment, Restylane® can last up to 18 months.
What Areas Can Be Treated With Restylane®?
Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Is Restylane® Right For Me?
An ideal candidate for Restylane® is in good overall health and has realistic expectations for what the treatment can do. It is always best for patients to discuss with a doctor first to determine if the treatment is ideal for their specific goals.
