Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds.
Is Restylane good for lip enhancement?
Restylane is one of the more popular dermal fillers used to add volume to the lips. Restylane Kysse, especially, is excellent for the lips because it adds volume and definition to the lips and the lip border. Patients must be 21 years of age to receive this injection. Lip enhancement results using Restylane typically last up to six months.
What is the best area for Restylane?
A Restylane injection replaces lost volume on the face and can be used to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles that are most commonly found from the nose to the mouth. These are known as “nasolabial folds” and “laugh lines”. The injection is also commonly used around the corners of the mouth that extend downward (“marionette lines”).
How often should I treat myself?
Most results will last a full year; however, some patients may choose to return between 5-9 months for a follow-up injection, which is safe to have at that time. Our office can set you up on a treatment regime so that the results remain optimal throughout the weeks and months following each session.
What alternative fillers are there?
While Restylane offers great benefits for patients seeking skin rejuvenation, there are other injectable fillers that may be considered as well. Some of these are comprised of materials such as collagen, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxyapatite. During your consultation, we will discuss the various fillers that are available today and work with you to understand your aesthetic goals so that the best filler choice can be made.
