Restylane

Last Updated: April 20, 2012

Restylane is an injectable filler used for the treatment of wrinkles.

Although this product has been successfully used for several years in Europe, it has only become available in the United States in recent years.

All research however indicates the product provides a safe, effective and natural way of reducing lines and wrinkles.

What is Restylane?

Restylane is made of hyaluronic acid, a biodegradable substance that is naturally produced in all living things.

When used as a dermal filler, hyaluronic acid fills and adds volume to the skin by binding to the epidermal cell’s water molecules.

Because of its chemical composition, Restylane is one of the safest fillers available today and approved by the FDA for wrinkle reduction.

How is a Restylane Injection Performed?

When Restylane is produced, it is made into an injectable form as a clear gel. This substance is then injected below the surface of the skin.

Treatments are usually performed in a doctor’s office without the need for anesthesia. Depending on the area to be treated, the procedure normally takes about 10 minutes to an hour.

What Parts of the Body Is Restylane Used For?

Restylane is primarily an effective wrinkle treatment for reducing lines around the nose and mouth as well as for contouring the mouth and cheeks.

It is also being used for lip enhancement and modifying sunken areas around the eyes.

What Are The Benefits of Restylane?

Choosing to have Restylane injection treatments offers not only the reduction in lines and wrinkles associated with the aging process, but also provides lubrication and moisture to the skin, making it look and feel healthier and younger.

Injection results can last between 6 months and one year.

What Are the Risks and Recovery Time?

Although side effects are rare, they may include swelling, redness, bruising, moderate pain and tenderness. These symptoms usually disappear after a few days.

Most individuals who have Restylane treatments do not require any recovery time and patients may return immediately to their daily activities.

Am I A Good Candidate For Restylane?

Although cosmetic surgeons must decide if Restylane treatments are a good treatment option for their patients, most individuals who are over the age of 18, are mature enough to understand the procedure, are in good health, both physically and psychologically and have realistic expectations about the results of these treatments make good candidates.

What Does Restylane Cost?

Most cosmetic surgeons charge by the syringe. For example, the Colorado center for Photomedicine charges between $500 and $600 per syringe and the North Valley Plastic Surgery Center in Arizona charges $475 per syringe.
