Restylane® is an FDA-approved collection of injectable fillers used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles, smooth marionette lines around the mouth, and plump the lips. Restylane® fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the skin. Results typically last between three to six months. The effects of Restylane® injections usually last about six months. As with other dermal fillers, side effects of Restylane® treatments can include temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness. These usually subside within a few days.
There are three types of Restylane®
A small particle filler best suited for lip enhancement and correction of vertical lip lines (smoker’s lines) and wrinkles.
Mid-size particle filler indicated for correction of lines and wrinkles including the parentheses lines, vertical lip lines, lip corners, and marionette lines.
Larger particle hyaluronic acid filler indicated for correction of flat sagging cheeks due to loss of fullness (age-related midface volume loss). It is designed to gently lift and contour the cheek. This last up to two years
