Restylane is for patients 21 and older who want to correct cosmetic concerns, such as nasolabial folds, or lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth, and lips that may just fall flat. Restylane works by utilizing a hyaluronic acid formula that is injected into targeted areas, which is meant to act as your body’s natural hyaluronic acid.
Although Restylane is a temporary filler solution that breaks down naturally over time, the injection session is quick and simple, and it provides immediately outstanding results in just one session. During treatment, patients may feel a slight pinch from the injection, but this is generally tolerable. If you are concerned about the discomfort of injections, a topical anesthetic may be suggested to ease your worry.
Most patients will notice a significant improvement right after their treatment session, and their results may last up to six months. However, patients can achieve longer-lasting results, up to 18 months, if they receive touch-up treatments 4 to 9 months after their first treatment.
