Restylane® is a family of products, including Restylane-L®, Restylane® Silk, and others, that are used to correct fine lines, wrinkles, and folds that are considered moderate to severe. These injections are dermal fillers and are FDA-approved for cosmetic treatments.
How does Restylane® work?*
Restylane® is used primarily around the nose and mouth, but can also be effective in other areas, such as around the eyes. It is also approved for lip enhancements in patients who are over 21 years of age.
The injection is made up of hyaluronic acid, which is a substance naturally occurring in the skin. Over time, your skin loses hyaluronic acid due to sun exposure and aging. Restylane® is a soft gel that is thicker than most other dermal fillers. It is injected close to the surface of the skin, where it fills in and plumps up the targeted area in order to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and creases.
What can I expect after my Restylane® injection?*
You might experience temporary redness and swelling at the injection site, but this does not last long. No downtime is needed for the injection, so you can return to your normal activities right away. Since Restylane® is made without animal proteins, there is minimal risk of an allergic reaction.
Your results from Restylane® will last anywhere from six months to one year.*
