Restylane is specifically formulated in such a way as to mimic your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid. It is injected into the skin with an ultrafine needle to plump the skin to smooth away wrinkles and folds. Restylane® is non-animal based and free from animal protein. Allergy pretesting is not necessary. Restylane® effects generally last 6-12 months depending on the location of treatment, and gradually disappears from the body. If you are treated again at 4 ½ or 9 months after your first treatment, Restylane® can last up to 18 months.
Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
