For patients looking for natural results! Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler that works to smooth away fine lines, wrinkles and folds. It can be used to smooth the lines around the mouth, as a lip enhancement, and to lift as well as add volume to the cheeks.
How long does the treatment last? - Restylane is a temporary treatment. Although effects are different from patient to patient, the results should last 6-9 months and 3-4 months in the lips. To maintain the result, we recommend touch-up treatments.
Is there downtime? – There is minimal downtime. You might experience swelling or bruising on injection site but it will subside. We recommend putting ice and massaging treated area(s). Results are immediate.
