Restylane/Perlane

Featuring a hyaluronic acid base, Restylane is approved for smoothing facial creases and adding volume to the lips. Lip treatments usually last around 6 months, while wrinkle treatments can last up to 12 months for some patient.

In addition to lip plumping, Restylane can be used in the following areas:

  • Laugh Lines – extend from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth

  • Marionette Lines – run from the corners of the mouth to the jawline

  • Lipstick Lines – vertical lines that appear just above the upper lip

  • Tear Trough Area – where those dark tired circles start to crop up

What To Expect With Restylane

When your Restylane procedure is complete, you may return to work. Your recovery period will vary based on what is being treated, so talk to your injector about what to expect. The injection sites may appear slightly swollen and red, but this often fades away after several hours. Bruising may be a factor, but this may be concealed with makeup. It is suggested that you avoid strenuous activity for 24 hours, and you should sleep upright for at least one night. Most patients will experience visible improvements immediately after the procedure, but it often takes 1 – 2 weeks until the final results develop. Restylane treatments often last around a year based on the exact product selected.

Frequently Asked Questions

What Are the Advantages of Restylane?

Restylane is a softer product compared to other HA’s, including Perlane. As such, it can have an advantage in tricky areas with lots of movement such as under eyes and the lips. This allows the practitioner to possibly better monitor swelling as all HA’s attract water.

To get the most out of your Restylane injections, a treatment plan of follow-up injections is needed. For most facial enhancements, having subsequent injections every 4 to 9 months is highly recommended.
