What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a hyaluronic-acid based dermal filler that can be used to soften the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and augment the lips in a subtle, natural-looking way. This product is administered in over 65 countries and has helped countless patients smooth the signs of aging.
How Does it Work?
Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the skin and is responsible for much of its fullness and softness. As people grow older, the amount of hyaluronic acid present in their skin naturally begins to diminish. This contributes to the formation of wrinkles and fine lines.
Restylane® is a dermal filler meant to help compensate for this lost hyaluronic acid. When injected into the skin at the site of wrinkles, this product adds youthful volume, softness, and smoothness to the face. It can also be injected into the lips to create a fuller, more pleasing lip shape.
Typically the results of Restylane® last between four and six months for wrinkle correction and up to a year for lip augmentation. After this period of time has passed, patients must undergo another series of injections to sustain their original results. Each injection session takes between 15 and 30 minutes to complete and involves little to no downtime.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone over the age of 18 that is interested in improving the appearance of wrinkles or enhancing their lips is a potential candidate for Restylane®. Patients must be in good physical condition and have realistic expectations about their treatment outcomes.
Any patients interested in undergoing this treatment should first schedule a consultation appointment with a member of our medical staff. During this appointment, the patient will be asked about her or his aesthetic goals, current state of health, and medical history. Using this information, a member of our medical staff will decide if Restylane® is right for you.
