The Restylane® family of dermal fillers are used to treat moderate to severe wrinkles and folds and also to add fullness and definition to lips.* Restylane is used primarily to add volume to smooth away deeper wrinkles and folds whereas Restylane Silk is specifically designed for lip enhancement and the smoothing of wrinkles and lines around the mouth.*
Restylane is made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in your skin. Restylane is injected into the skin, which lifts up the wrinkle or fold and immediately smoothes them out.* Restylane Silk is injected to plump thin lips and correct the vertical lines around the mouth.*
How is the procedure performed?
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts with an ultra-fine needle.* The procedure is simple and quick, and results are immediate. A topical numbing cream is used 45 minutes before the procedure to minimize discomfort.*
Restylane effects typically last 6 months and up to one year, depending on the area.* Treatments are usually scheduled twice a year.* Evidence shows that having touch-up treatments before Restylane has fully dissipated will enhance the lasting effect.*
*Disclaimer, results may vary from person to person.
