Restylane Skin Smoothing
Restylane can be used to smooth out nose-to-mouth lines, frown lines, fine lines around the lips and eyes as well as the folds at the corners of the mouth. It is also perfectly suited to lip enhancement and for reshaping facial contours.
Restylane is a clear gel made of naturally occurring substances already found in our skin. The main function of this product is to maintain the volume of skin, reducing visible aging and smoothing out wrinkles and folds.
How is it Restylane used?
The area to be treated is numbed using a topical anaesthetic, after which Restylane, containing Lidocaine anaesthetic is injected into the wrinkle or fold, just under the skin.
How long does a Restylane treatment take?
Generally treatment can be carried out in a single appointment of between 45mins and 1 hour.
How quickly and for how long will I see results?
The length of effect will depend upon the area treated. Nose-to-mouth line treatments last from between 8-10 months; lip enhancements last from 6-8 months. Regular top-ups will mean that less material is needed at subsequent treatments in order to maintain the effect.
Does Restylane have any side effects?
Restylane fillers are a safe and tested treatment. There is occasionally a little swelling around the treated area for one to two days after treatment, after which the swelling subsides.
Only 1 in 15,000 patients have reported an allergic reaction to Restylane, meaning the risks are so low that the material does not require patch testing prior to use.
What is the advantage of Restylane over surgery?
The treatment is not permanent, giving patients control over their look.
The results are almost instant; there is little or no recovery period, very little discomfort and is far less expensive than surgery.
