What is Restylane ®?
Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler, made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid, that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct facial wrinkles and folds.
What type of results will I see?
The results from a Restylane treatment are immediate. It is an ideal treatment for blending wrinkles and folds or if you want to enhance the appearance of your lips.
Can anyone have Restylane therapy?
The best candidates are women and men who are in good health. There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction, as this product is non-animal based, hyaluronic acid and is biodegradable and biocompatible. Patients should avoid taking aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St. John’s Wort, or high doses of Vitamin E supplements for one week prior to treatment.
What is involved in the therapy?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and results are practically instantaneous. To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, the treated area may be anesthetized.
How long do the results of Restylane last?
The average Restylane treatment lasts six to nine months, therefore most people choose to have a touch-up treatment at 6 months which can last an additional year. Having a touch-up treatment before the product has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.
