What Areas Can Be Treated With Restylane?

Restylane dermal filler can be used to enhance the volume, shape, and smoothness of any area of your face including your lips. Restylane is used to enhance problem areas such as:

  • Acne and related scarring
  • Laugh lines
  • Crow’s feet
  • Sagging skin around the cheeks and neck
  • Thin lips
  • Eliminate wrinkles around the eyes and forehead

How Does Restylane Work?

Restylane works by temporarily adding volume to facial tissue. The properties that make up Restylane bind naturally with the water molecules that reside in your skin.

How Long Does One Treatment Last?

Results are noticed immediately and wrinkles and fine lines will smooth out after the gel is injected. Results will last for a shorter duration in the lips, generally from 3 to 6 months. Other parts of the face last a bit longer, anywhere from 6 to 9 months.

What Are The Risks/Side Effects?

The most common side effects of Restylane include headache, nausea, flu-like symptoms, redness, and pain at the injection points. Some, patients experience muscle weakness, which will diminish within a few days. Some patients may have an allergic reaction to the bacterial protein elements present in the gel. Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not use Restylane. For a full list of risks and side effects, please consult a medical professional.
