What is Restylane?
Restylane is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal based hyaluronic acid. It is fully biocompatible with human hyaluronic acid; therefore, no allergy testing is required. Restylane is used to restore volume and fullness to the skin and to correct facial wrinkles and folds.
Where is Restylane Used?
- Nasolabial Folds also commonly known as laugh lines. This is the area that extends for the nose to the corners of the mouth.
- Marionette Lines: This is the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
- Lipstick lines: This is the area just below the nose and above the upper lip.
- Corners of the mouth: This is the area next to the crease of the lips.
How is Restylane injected?
A topical anesthetic is first applied to the area that is to be treated. After the area is numb Restylane will be injected with a fine needle. There may be some bruising and swelling of the area for a few days afterwards but this can usually be camouflaged with makeup. The effects are immediate and can last from 6 - 12 months.
