What is Restylane?
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
How long does Restylane last?
Restylane® effects generally last six months and gradually disappears from the body. If you are treated again at 4 1⁄2 or 9 months after your first treatment, Restylane® can last up to 18 months.
What are the potential side effects?
Bruising, redness, swelling pain (includes burning), tenderness, and itching. Most of these symptoms were considered tolerable and resolved in less than a week.
Rarely, the doctor may inadvertently inject the product into a blood vessel, which can cause injury to the blood supply and damage to the skin. Rarely, a few people have developed infections that must be treated with antibiotics or other treatment. Infection may be hard to treat, but will generally go away when the gel is absorbed.
How does Restylane it work
Restylane® is injected into the skin with an ultra fine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) or your lips.
