Restylane® is a clear gel hyaluronic acid filler, and it has been used more than 10 million times worldwide. It is normally used to help add volume to lips and contour them, but it is also frequently used to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles. Restylane is normally used to soften smile lines, which appear around the nose and mouth, marionette lines also known as frown lines, superficial lines around the mouth and crow’s feet. It can also be used to add volume under and around the eyes.

Additionally, Restylane® and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.

How It Works

Restylane® is injected into the mid to deep facial tissue to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.

What to Expect

Talk to your doctor about options to make you as comfortable as possible during the procedure, including Restylane-L and pain medication. Your doctor will cleanse and prepare the area(s) to be treated. The clear gel in the Restylane family of products is injected into the treatment area(s) using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired aesthetic effect. After injection, he/she may gently massage the treated area.

A treatment with Restylane doesn’t usually take long. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed after the initial treatment to optimize your results. Talk to your healthcare professional to learn more about the treatment procedure.

After your initial treatment, you can refresh your look with a follow-up treatment, as determined by your healthcare professional. Additional treatments can help refresh the immediate results of your initial treatment.

Results

Restylane® is the world’s best-selling dermal filler. It is well tolerated, nonsurgical and long lasting (usually around six months). In a clinical study of subjects treated with Restylane, blinded evaluators reported still seeing improvement in 95% of subjects 18 months after initial injection.*

*Subjects were retreated at 4.5 and/or 9 months.

Is It Safe?

Restylane® and Restylane-L® are the only FDA-approved products for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.

The most commonly observed side effects are swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site, and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and typically resolve in less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Serious but rare side effects include delayed onset infections, recurrence of herpetic eruptions, and superficial necrosis at the injection site.

One of the risks with using this product is unintentional injection into a blood vessel. The chances of this happening are very small, but if it does happen, the complications can be serious, and may be permanent. These complications, which have been reported for facial injections, can include vision abnormalities, blindness, stroke, temporary scabs, or permanent scarring of the skin.

Possible Side Effects

As with all skin injection procedures, there is a risk of infection. The most common side effects include injection-related reactions such as swelling, bruising, redness, pain and tenderness. These effects generally disappear within one week after injection. Other potential side effects can occur. You should discuss the potential treatment risks with your healthcare professional.
