Restylane is an injectable gel filler which adds 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 can be used individually 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).
How Does Restylane Work?
Our skin changes as we age. It becomes thinner, loses fat, and no longer looks as plump and smooth as it once did. And while how your skin ages will depend on a variety of factors, the Restylane family of products may be able to help. Restylane works immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally.
Are There Side Effects?
Side effects may include swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 – 18 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
Is Restylane Right For Me?
Because only you know what look is right look for you, it’s important to discuss treatment and expectations with your healthcare provider. During a consultation, he or she will determine if Restylane is right for you, plus how much product is appropriate to enhance your look.
