Restylane® is a hyaluronic acid dermal filler used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corner of your mouth down towards your chin). Restylane® also helps replace volume loss in the lips and tear troughs. Restylane® mimics the hyaluronic acid that is already naturally produced in your body.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is Restylane used for?
Restylane is used to treat moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including nasolabial folds (smile lines) and marionette lines (lines from the corner of your mouth down towards your chin). Restylane® also helps replace volume loss in the lips, giving you a smooth, plump pout. We love this product in the undereye area, after the midface volume has been restored first.
How long does Restylane last?
With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months with Restylane, although results may vary among patients.
Is Restylane a permanent filler?
Restylane lasts up to 18 months, depending on where it is injected. It is long-lasting, but not permanent.
How long will Restylane last under eyes?
Restylane can last up to one year or longer underneath the eyes.
What are the side effects of Restylane?
After your treatment, you may experience side effects such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, itching at injection site, and tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips.
Is Restylane filler safe?
Yes, Restylane is considered safe, but side effects may include temporary reactions at the treatment site such as tenderness, swelling, firmness, lumps/bumps, bruising, pain, redness, discoloration, and itching. Hyaluronidase is an enzyme that may be used with a serious side-effect or unwanted result.
Will Restylane bumps go away?
Restylane injections can have lumps or bumps that show up after the treatment, but they disappear within a couple of weeks. If the bumps do not resolve themselves within one month, your provider can use hyaluronidase to dissolve it.
Can Restylane be removed?
Yes, Restylane can be dissolved using an enzyme called Hyaluronidase.
Can you use Restylane under eyes?
Yes, Restylane may be used to replace volume around the eyes.
How long does it take for fillers to settle?
It can take up to 2 weeks for fillers to settle and to appreciate final results once swelling has subsided.
