Restylane is an injected dermal filler. Dermal fillers are a non-surgical treatment where material is injected into the skin to fill and smooth facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane is composed of a get formulation of hyaluronic acid, a component found in our skin. Because of this, pre-treatment allergy testing is not necessary with hyaluronic fillers such as Restylane. Restylane usually lasts up to 6-9 months.*
Restylane is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. It is also FDA-approved for lip enhancement in adult clients. It is also commonly used to fill the hollows some clients have under their eyes, smoothing the area and improving the appearance of under eye “bags” and dark circles. Restylane-L is a formulation of Restylane with the local anesthetic lidocaine added to the gel to numb the treatment area within second, thus greatly improving clients’ comfort during the injections. Clients should be counseled by their physician regarding how much Restylane should be used to fully correct their treatment areas. Like with all dermal fillers, some clients may need more than one syringe of Restylane to achieve the absolute best and satisfactory result they are looking for.*
