What is RestylaneⓇ?
RestylaneⓇ is an injectable dermal filler that can be used to assist in augmenting the lips as well as correcting wrinkles and other facial fine lines. The key component of this dermal filler is hyaluronic acid which is a sugar molecule found in the skin that binds water together for skin hydration. Utilizing hyaluronic acid, RestylaneⓇ is able to restore volume and fullness to the skin. RestylaneⓇ is approved by the FDA for patients over the age of 21.
What can RestylaneⓇ treat?
- Smile lines, crow’s feet, or marionette lines at the corners of the mouth
- Thinned lips
- Nasolabial folds
- Acne scars
- Chin augmentation
- Cheek depressions
How many RestylaneⓇ treatments are necessary?
Depending on the patient’s body chemistry and what the patient wants to accomplish will determine how many treatments will be necessary. Generally, 1-2 treatments are initial with anything beyond that being based off of the patient’s body and goals.
Is RestylaneⓇ right for me?
RestylaneⓇ may be right for you if you are discomforted by any wrinkles or nasolabial folds and seek smoother skin. If you are pregnant or have any allergies or bleeding disorders, consult with our medical staff prior to treatment in order to better determine if RestylaneⓇ may be suitable for you.
What are some side effects to RestylaneⓇ?
Some patients may experience some side effects like swelling, redness, bruising or tenderness. These side effects tend to last no more than 7 days for nasolabial folds and no more than 14-18 days for injection into the lips. These side effects are typically mild.
