Restylane is made of a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid (HA)–a kind of sugar naturally produced in the body, especially in the skin. Because of this, Restylane is biocompatible and rarely causes allergic reactions.
How Does it Work?
Restylane is formulated to behave just like your body’s naturally-produced hyaluronic acid and is injected to immediately reduce moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the unpleasant nasolabial folds (smile lines) that run from the nose to the corners of the mouth. Restylane is also used to restore lost facial volume in areas such as under the eye, and add fullness and definition to the lips.
How Long Do They Last?
Restylane fillers generally last from 8-10 months depending on the area treated, the amount injected, and your metabolism.
