What is Restylane?

Restylane is an instant volumizer that produces a natural and younger-looking you. It is widely used to treat smile lines, marionette lines which extend from the corners of the mouth down to the jawline, and creases in the corners of the mouth. For patients over 21 years old, Restylane can also be used for upper and lower lip enhancement. We offer a range of different dermal fillers, including Restylane, to provide you with your best-looking skin yet.
What is Restylane Made Of?

Restylane is made up of a clear, non-animal based, biodegradable gel formula of hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is already naturally produced within our bodies to provide fullness and volume to the skin. When Restylane is injected beneath your skin, the hyaluronic acid acts as a magnet for water, preserving the fullness of the skin. Since hyaluronic acid is already found in your body, it will gradually be absorbed back into the body. However, even as this filler naturally degrades, it continues to attract more water to it. Hyaluronic acid’s water-retaining property makes it an ideal filler agent.

How Long Does it Last?

Restylane lasts longer than many other fillers, and re-treatment may not be necessary for up to 12 months after the procedure. Each subsequent treatment that you receive after the first will last longer than the previous treatment. After Restylane injections, the skin will appear healthier, fuller, and tighter, and as a result lines, wrinkles, and folds are improved, and the skin is enhanced.

What are the Advantages?

There are a number of advantages to choosing Restylane. The process is quick and can take up to a half hour, but it is often complete within a few minutes. It can easily be administered in a doctor’s office, and patients can even return to work immediately after the procedure.

Is it the Right Choice for Me?

If you want to get a more youthful look without going undergoing surgery, Restylane is the right choice for you. Restylane is injected under the skin, so no incisions will be made. Since there is no surgery involved, there is also little to no downtime.
