Restylane® is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, and is gentle and safe to your skin.
Restylane lasts approximately 6 months and is very effective for diminishing wrinkles around the corners of the mouth, the lips, the nasolabial folds, and the frown lines.
Restylane is also an excellent temporary filler for lip augmentation. Experience shows that Restylane is effective for up to six months when injected in the lips. Restylane is a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of correcting your treatment in tune with changing taste and fashion.
As with any filler, a consultation with your plastic surgeon is necessary to discuss the options and to determine which areas are best suited for Restylane treatment.
The injection procedure can be slightly painful, so topical and local anesthetics may be used prior to injection of Restylane.
