What is Restylane?
Restylane is injectable dermal filler that is made from hyaluronic acid (HA). HA delivers nutrients to the skin and helps the skin retain its natural moisture and softness. HA also gives volume to the skin. The HA gel is not animal based and is clear and biodegradable.
What are the indications?
Restylane can be used for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds including nasolabial folds, oral commissures and marionette lines.
How long with Restylane last and when will I see results?
Restylane can last between 6 months to a year and results are immediate but will vary from patient to patient.
Is there any discomfort?
Dr. Banki will apply a topical anesthetic to your face to numb the areas of treatment. Then small needles will be inserted into the skin to apply the Restylane. You should not expect a lot of discomfort and the procedure does not last long.
