Hear stories from real patients who have used Restylane for results that aren't usually achievable with over-the-counter cosmetic products. If you are 21 or older and have mild to moderate creases and wrinkles on your face, you are an excellent candidate for Restylane injections. Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like the body's own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including lines that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds) and lines that run from the corners of the mouth to the chin (puppet lines). Young people naturally produce adequate amounts of hyaluronic acid, which is why Restylane is only approved for those 21 and older.
The cost of Restylane treatments may vary depending on what has been done and the number of syringes needed. Talk to your doctor about the desired results and what type of Restylane is best for you. The needle used to inject Restylane is ultra-thin and you may receive one or more injections at the same site. Restylane is an injectable gel composed of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists in the body.
Restylane can be used to enhance the lips in patients over 21 years of age and to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as lines from the nose to the corners of the mouth (nasolabial folds). Dr. Lee will decide how much Restylane you need based on the areas you are treating and the depth of any wrinkles you have. Restylane injections aren't permanent fillers, so if you want to maintain the results, you'll need more rounds of injections.
The hyaluronic acid in Restylane draws more water under the skin, ultimately creating the volume that the filler adds to the face.
