Restylane-L is a dermal filler that contains Hyaluronic Acid. Hyaluronic Acid is a natural substance produced in the skin that binds easily to water. Once injected into the skin it attracts water to the soft tissue providing volume and fullness to the face. They fill the face by replacing lost volume and restoring youthful contours. This smooth’s the wrinkles and folds to produce a natural appearance. Restylane-L also contains lidocaine to help reduce any discomfort or pain during and after the treatment. Restylane provides immediate natural results after treatment.
Areas of Use
Restylane is a facial filler that can be used in most areas of the face. The most common uses of the product are the treatment of the nasolabial folds (the creases that run from the bottom of your nose to the corners of the mouth), the tear trough (dark shadows under the eyes), the lower lines of the face, and lip augmentation. Restylane is an FDA approved product for lip augmentations. It can also be used to rejuvenate the earlobes by adding volume and strength to the earlobes in order to prevent sagging and hanging when wearing earrings. It can be used to restore volume and eliminate shadows and hollowness of the face, producing a refreshed natural result.
Any treatment using Restylane is minimally invasive and has essentially no recovery period. Some patients may experience some swelling at the injection site and very minor bruising; this may last 7 to 10 days.
Duration of the Effect
The results of a Restylane treatment may last anywhere from 6 to 9 months. However results may vary depending on the injection site and the patients skin type. The product can last up to 2 years if the treatments are done in sessions.
