What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is an injectable gel that is FDA-approved to instantly smooth moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as smile lines, nasolabial folds (the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth), the corners of the mouth, and marionette lines (the lines that extend downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline). Restylane® may also be used for lip enhancement to add more fullness and plump thin lips, whether your lips have thinned somewhat over time, or even if you just want fuller lips.
The products in this family of injectable facial fillers include:
What Are the Benefits of Restylane®?
All of these products use NASHA technology, which gives each product a unique particle size that is tailored for specific treatments. These products have also been shown to have a greater lifting capacity than some other products, and they tend to hold their form well after being injected into the body.
What Should I Expect from a Restylane® Procedure?
The results from injection of these products have been shown to last from six months up to one year, depending on the area that is treated, the specific product(s) used, and the individual patient.
What is the Recovery like After a Restylane® Treatment?
Generally, the side effects of these products are mild and short-lived. The most common side effects after injection include redness, tenderness, swelling and bruising, although there are other, more serious side effects that have been reported in rare cases.
When Will I See Results from Restylane® Treatments?
The results from the injection of these products can be seen almost immediately, although some degree of initial swelling is expected, and typically the results will settle in over the first one to two weeks after the treatment is performed.
