The Restylane® family of dermal fillers are used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds and also to add fullness and definition to lips. Restylane® is used primarily to add volume to smooth away deeper wrinkles and folds whereas Restylane® Silk is specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth.
How does Restylane® work?
Restylane® is made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in your skin. Restylane® is injected into the skin, which lifts up the wrinkle or fold and immediately smoothes them out. Restylane® Silk is injected to plump thin lips and correct the vertical lines around the mouth.
How is a Restylane® procedure performed?
Restylane® is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts with an ultra-fine needle. The procedure is simple and quick, and results are immediate. A topical numbing cream is used 45 minutes before the procedure to minimize discomfort. We exclusively use Restylane-L®, which contains lidocaine to make your injection even more comfortable.
What areas can Restylane® be used?
The most popular areas are the nasolabial folds (the crease from the nose to the corner of your mouth), droopy corners of the mouth, marionette lines, lips and the vertical lines around the mouth. Restylane® can also help define the lip borders (no more bleeding lipstick!) and give the appearance of a fuller lip. Lastly, sunken acne scars can be improved with Restylane®.
How long will the results of a Restylane® treatment last?
Restylane® effects typically last 6 months and up to one year, depending on the area. Treatments are usually scheduled twice a year. Evidence shows that having touch-up treatments before Restylane® has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.
