Restylane utilizes a hydrophilic technology that helps to bind the hyaluronic acid together to create the volume and fullness that is desired in producing a younger look. In studies, Restylane has been shown to last up to six months. As you continue treatments, the product will start to last longer in the desired location. Restylane has been approved by the FDA to be used in the treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from the nose to the corner of the mouth, also known as the nasolabial folds.
These dermal fillers are safe and the body will gradually absorb the hyaluronic acid. This is non-toxic as our body already creates its own hyaluronic acid. After treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, and tenderness at the injection site. These symptoms normally go away in about seven days. A procedure can take up to 1 hour and is very non-invasive. Most clients go about their daily schedule with no problems.
