Restylane® is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth and the ones that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin, which are usually called marionette lines.
Additionally, Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved for lip enhancement in patients over the age of 21 and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition.
How does it work?
How does Restylane work?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that keeps our skin hydrated and creates volume through its ability to bind water molecules. The Restylane range of products is designed to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid.
However, as we age, our bodies make less hyaluronic acid. Our skin begins to sag and look thinner, losing its radiance and youthful appearance. Injecting hyaluronic acid can help reduce the visible signs of aging.
The Restylane range utilizes two technologies to stabilize hyaluronic acid into a gel form. When injected, it adds volume to smooth wrinkles and enhance facial balance where needed.

A treatment with Restylane doesn’t usually take long. A touch-up treatment is sometimes performed after the initial treatment to optimize your results.
Some people may experience the treatment as a mild discomfort. Many Restylane products contain an integrated local anaesthetic, lidocaine, to provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience. You and your healthcare professional may decide whether additional pain relief is needed.
There are some people in whom Restylane and Restylane Skinboosters should not be used. At your initial consultation, it’s important to tell your healthcare professional about all of your current and prior medical conditions and allergies and, how serious they are, all medications you are taking and whether you have had or are planning to have another aesthetic procedure (e.g., laser, chemical peel).
Results vary from patient to patient. With a repeated treatment plan, results may be long-lasting.
Maintenance or “touch-up” treatments are one or more additional treatments after your initial session to help maintain your results. Talk to your healthcare professional to see if maintenance treatment is right for you, and when and how much Restylane may be needed.
