Restylane is a collection of dermal filler products that use a hyaluronic acid formula to add volume and smooth wrinkles in the face. Hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body to provide the skin with adequate moisture and nutrients. Restylane treatments can lift and define features as well as soften wrinkles. Each product is specifically made to target a certain area and includes:
Used to soften laugh lines around the mouth and wrinkles in the face as well as enhance the lips. With optimal treatment, results can last for over one year.
Used to treat problems in the midface, Restylane Lyft can restore volume loss in the cheeks and soften moderate to severe lines and wrinkles. If you experience smile lines around the mouth or between the nose and corners of the mouth, you might choose Restylane Lyft for your treatment. Lyft is shown to last several months for treatment of wrinkles and up to a year for treatment of volume loss in the midface.
These products are effective in reducing the appearance of laugh lines between the nose and the mouth. Results can last for up to one year.
Designed for silkier, smoother, and fuller-looking lips. Your lips can thin due to age or genetics. Restylane can be placed in the lips for augmentation, or around the lips to soften lines and wrinkles. Results of Restylane Silk can last for six months or longer.
Treatment with Restylane products is nonsurgical. Before placement, a topical anesthetic can be applied to the area to minimize your discomfort during the process. The Restylane formula will be placed into the target area, deep within the skin, using a very thin needle. Next, the area will be massaged to ensure even distribution of the gel. The amount of time your treatment takes will depend on the severity of your volume loss and wrinkles, but should take under an hour.
After treatment, you might experience some mild side effects including swelling, redness, bruising, headache, and itching at the injection site. These symptoms should subside in the next few days. All normal activity can be resumed after treatment with no downtime required. It is advised that you avoid sun exposure or use sun protection for the first few days.
The results of your treatment with Restylane products can be noticed immediately with added volume and softened facial folds and wrinkles. While one session can give you effective results, you might choose to have a second session to optimize your treatment for longer-lasting results.
