How Restylane Injections Work?
The Restylane family of products are wrinkle fillers. Restylane and Perlane smooth your skin through a substance known as hyaluronic acid (HA). This naturally-occurring substance gives your skin elasticity, fullness and keeps you looking young.
As you age, you gradually lose hyaluronic acid. Restylane rejuvenates your skin a gel injection that includes HA. The small injection gives your skin natural volume and fullness that can last for months and even years for some conditions.
Restylane is approved by the FDA for lip enhancement in patients 21 and older. That makes Restylane and Perlane the best options for beautiful, natural-looking lips. The Restylane family of products have also been used to treat:
- Laugh lines
- Crow's feet
- Vertical lines
Restylane is best used around the lips and eyes. These injectable fillers are ideal for treating moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. The primary difference between Restylane and Perlane is the length of the effects; Restylane can smooth away wrinkles anywhere from 6 to 18 months, while Perlane effects last even longer.
What Will My Restylane Treatment Be Like?
Restylane treatment is fast and easy; a typical appointment is completed in under an hour. At the start of any injection, your Restylane provider will cleanse the injection site. The Restylane smoothing gel is injected using an ultra-fine needle to minimize pain.
For most patients, the results of Restylane and Perlane are immediately visible. Your provider will give you recommendations after the treatment. Generally, it's a good idea to avoid the following for 24 hours after treatment:
- Strenuous exercise
- Direct sunlight exposure
- Intense heat
- Anti-inflammatory medications (aspirin)
Some amount of swelling is perfectly normal, and will go away with nothing more than a cold compress.
