What is Restylane?
Restylane is a natural, synthesized and fully degradable FDA approved hyaluronic acid that has been used in Europe for years.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal-clear gel. It is injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in your skin, Restylane creates volume, resulting in a healthy and vital appearance. When injected into the lip it can restore a more natural and/or sensuous look. In contrast to other biodegradable implants, Restylane is not extracted from animals. This means no risk of allergic reaction. Therefore, Restylane is perfectly safe to use instantly without pre-testing.
What indications respond best to this combination treatment?
Botox is a great treatment for "crow's feet", forehead lines and the creases between the eyebrows. Restylane is most frequently used to treat deep smile lines, dimples, smoker's lines around the mouth, marionette lines at the ends of the mouth, acne scars, cheek depressions, and facial scars. In addition to filling wrinkles, Restylane can be used to enhance the lip line and add fullness of the lips. Restylane injections are a safe, effective, time-tested, non-surgical wrinkle treatment that provide immediate results.
