Restylane™ is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to enhance the appearance of the lip border and improve facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, which are the lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth.*
Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the human body. Restylane is free from animal proteins which limits any risk of animal-based disease transmissions or development of allergic reactions to animal proteins.
Studies have shown that Restylane effects generally last for about six months.*
You should take a few precautions before being treated with Restylane™. One week prior to treatment with Restylane, avoid taking St. John's Wort, high doses of Vitamin E supplements, aspirin, and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site. Also, if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another recurrence.
Restylane is injected directly into the skin in tiny amounts by an ultrafine needle, resulting in minimal discomfort. The procedure is simple and convenient and results are practically instantaneous.* To optimize your comfort during the short procedure, your physician may decide to numb the treatment area.
