Restylane is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds or laugh lines), the corners of the mouth and marionette lines — the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline, lips and under eye hollows.
The Restylane family of products includes Restylane-L, Restylane Lyft, and Restylane Silk. These products can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. Restylane-L and Restylane Silk may also be used for lip enhancement, fine lines around the lips, and hollows under the eyes. Dr. Zipper offers free consultations to help decide the best treatment for you. The consultation and procedure can both be done the same day and patients can resume their normal activities or return work after the procedure.
A topical anesthetic is applied to the area being treated and the filler has lidocaine mixed in making the procedure more comfortable.
