Restylane® is an FDA-approved family of products used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane and Restylane-L may also be used for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years.
Restylane is formulated as a clear gel and uses a dual mechanism of action to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds. After it is injected beneath the skin’s surface, the gel integrates into dermal tissue and then attracts and binds to water molecules to help maintain volume. Restylane is gradually degraded by the body’s own mechanism and disappears without any residue. Results from Restylane in Nashville can be seen immediately following treatment and can last for up to six months or longer, depending on the injection site.
