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 can be seen immediately following treatment and can last for up to six months or longer, depending on the injection site.

They are also not appropriate for people with bleeding disorders.

Recovery Period After Restylane® Injections

After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
