Patients looking to improve volume and fullness to their skin or are experiencing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds should consider Restylane as a corrective option. This injectable gel solution has been used in more than 15 million treatments around the world. Restylane is especially popular in the correction of nasolabial folds, the lines that run from your nose to the corners of your mouth.
Depending on the area to be treated, the procedure lasts around 15 minutes. For ensured comfort, the area is numbed with local anesthetic or a topical cream ahead of the procedure.
Because Restylane is made from hyaluronic acid, it is broken down in the body naturally. On average, patients can expect the effects of Restylane to last between six and nine months for wrinkle treatments. When Restylane is used on the lips, the effects last for a shorter time, around three to four months.
