Restylane Overview

Restylane fillers are a injectable fillers product. Restylane filler is the trade name for a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid most commonly used for lip augmentation. In the United States, Restylane treatment has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for cosmetic injection into subdermal facial tissues. Restylane injections helps rejuvenate facial skin by reducing or eliminating wrinkles, raising scar depressions, enhancing lips and replacing soft-tissue volume loss through restylane injection. With age, our skin becomes more susceptible to wrinkles and sagging. Exposure to sun and years of muscle movement (squinting, chewing, smiling) contribute to tissue breakdown of the skin.

Restylane filler, are temporary to long-lasting solutions administered through a few tiny facial injections on specific areas of the face. Various types of facial fillers are available; each is designed with one or several purposes, such as wrinkle reduction and lip augmentation. A qualified dental or medical professional  can help you determine which facial filler injections will provide you with optimal results.

Some of the most common side effects include: allergic reaction, bruising at injection site, numbness, and temporary redness, swelling, pain/tenderness, or discoloration. A restylane injection requires very minimal downtime, allowing patients to return to work and their normal activities directly following treatment.

The amount administered depends on the depth and size of the skin defect or wrinkle.
