Restylane®

Overview

Restylane® is a dermal filler in a line of products that can be used to enhance features of the face and make you appear younger. Restylane® adds volume and fullness to the skin to soften wrinkles and folds. Restylane® Silk is used for lip-enhancement and wrinkles around the mouth. Restylane® Lift is used for cheek-enhamcement and midface contouring.

The Science

All Restylane® products are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps you retain moisture, cushioning, and overall plumpness. Restylane® is injected in either the wrinkles of your face, your lips, or your cheeks to restore lost volume and enhance your natural appearance.

What to Expect

Each Restylane® procedure takes less than 30 minutes. A needle with hyaluronic acid will be injected into the treatment site – your wrinkles, cheeks, or lips. Pain is typically minimal but a topical anesthetic can be applied. The most common side effects include bruising, redness, swelling, pain, headache, tenderness and itching and usually subside within a few days. Length of results from Restylane® varies depending on the product and your individual skin type. Many patients see results for 6 months or more.
