Restylane® is a safe and natural dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds. Collagen is a protein that is found naturally in your body to give support to your skin. With time (or accelerated by sun or smoke damage), your body’s collagen weakens forming wrinkles in skin. Restylane helps to replenish the skin’s natural collagen support layer and provide additional support. The result is a smoother face.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane is a cosmetic dermal filler made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. The hyaluronic acid also creates volume in the face, giving it a healthy, youthful appearance. When Restylane is injected directly into areas where the body’s collagen has been weakened, depressions can be raised to the level of surrounding skin. This smoothes and minimizes facial lines and most types of scars. In addition, skin texture is improved and has a softer and more even tone.
How is a Restylane procedure performed?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and quick, and results are practically instantaneous. A dental block or numbing cream may be used before the Restylane treatment to optimize your comfort during the short procedure.
Prior to a Restylane treatment, patients should avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication or vitamin E supplements. This will minimize any bleeding or bruising.
Where can Restylane be used?
The areas most commonly treated are the area between the eyebrows, the nasolabial folds, and the area around the mouth. The treatment can also help to define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.
Restylane is FDA approved for submucosal implantation for lip augmentation in patients over 21 years of age, and for mid-to-deep dermal implantation for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
How long will the results of a Restylane treatment last?
Restylane effects last between six and nine months.
