Restylane ® is a cosmetic dermal filler that replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin and is FDA approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds.
Restylane is a sterile gel consisting of stabilized hyaluronic acid for injection into the skin to correct facial lines and wrinkles. Youthful skin is rich in hyaluronic acid. As we age, the distribution and function of hyaluronic acid in our skin gradually changes, leading to the characteristic signs of aging.
Hyaluronic acid is an important structural element found in human skin and tissue. Hyaluronic acid acts by adding volume to the tissue, shaping the contours of the face, and enhancing the fullness and appearance of the lips.
Restylane filler injections are composed of clear hyaluronic acid that fills in lines and wrinkles and adds moisture to the skin, resulting in a more youthful appearance. Results can last for 6 months or longer, but the duration of effects varies from patient to patient and can be shorter or even longer. If Restylane ® is reinjected before all product is metabolized, you may not require as much Restylane ® as you did with the initial injection.
The most common areas for using Volumizing Fillers are the marionette lines (from the corner of your mouth to your chin), the nasolabial folds (from the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth), cheeks, lips, deep lines around or in between the eyes, tear troughs (commonly known as bags) although other sites can also be treated. Please ask about any areas of concern and we would be happy to advise on treatments.
Restylane can last 6-12 months or even longer. Results may vary.
