Restylane® , a non-surgical alternative can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose
to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used
for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
The Restylane® family of products are classified as temporary fillers and typically last approximately 6 to 12 months. According to the product’s clinical study, initial treatment followed by a second treatment 4.5 to 9 months later can give lasting wrinkle correction for 18 months. Wrinkle correction is lasting due to hyaluronic acid filler properties of isovolumic degradation. As Restylane® dissipates, the remaining filler attracts water to the area of wrinkle correction, creating persistent wrinkle and facial fold correction.
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.
