Restylane is an effective injectable treatment that corrects moderate to severe folds and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds, or the line extending from your nose to the corners of your mouth. Not only that, but it can also add volume and definition to the lips, enhancing your appearance in just one quick and easy injection session.

How does Restylane® work?

Restylane is a gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in your body that provides you with smoother, younger-looking skin. All factors of the treatment, including dosage and injection sites, are customized for each patient depending on the depth of wrinkles and folds and their desired cosmetic enhancements. Restylane provides effective results, giving you a vibrant and refreshed appearance.

Although Restylane is a temporary solution, touch-up appointments can be scheduled to maintain your results. Restylane is proven to last up to 9 months with optimal results. Individual results vary.

Is Restylane® right for me?

If you are 21 years or older and are unhappy with your lip shape and structure, and/or nasolabial folds, or frown lines, we can help correct these cosmetic concerns with Restylane. This product shouldn’t be used for people who have dangerous allergic reactions or allergies of gram-positive bacteria and lidocaine. A consultation is necessary to determine whether Restylane is the optimal solution for you. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation.

What are the risks?

After treatment, patients may experience some swelling, pain, redness, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site(s) that are mild and last up to a week. Rare side effects include red or swollen small bumps around the injection site. If you have any sores, pimples, hives, or infections, the treatment will be postponed until these heal since this can delay healing or make the problems worse.
