Restylane is a safe and natural cosmetic dermal filler that restores volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds. Restylane is the first and only cosmetic dermal filler made of non-animal-based hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that already exists in the human body and is used to provide volume and fullness to the skin. Studies have shown that the average treatment results last up to six months or even longer.
Immediate results can be seen after one injection of Restylane. The most common side effects are temporary redness and swelling at the injection site. These effects typically resolve within two to three days. Follow up appointments are not necessary unless more volume is desired in the treated area. Most patients achieve the desired results after one treatment.
