Injectable dermal fillers can add volume to the face, whether to augment the lips or other features for a preferred look or to fill in wrinkles and restore volume lost in the aging process. Restylane fillers can be injected to suit a variety of cosmetic uses.
Restylane is a brand of dermal fillers that are used to smooth wrinkles in the face. A hyaluronic acid based filler, Restylane can be used for the following purposes:
A naturally-occurring substance, hyaluronic acid works by bonding with water to increase fullness and volume when injected into the skin.
Restylane is a good option for those who wish to minimize wrinkles or add fullness to the face non-surgically. It may not be a suitable treatment if your wrinkles are very deep or severe, in which case a facelift or other procedure may be necessary.

Most patients experience some redness, swelling, or bruising after receiving Restylane injections. These should subside within a week or so, and you can carefully apply makeup to conceal redness or bruises as they heal. Limit sun exposure in the week or so after receiving Restylane injections.
Results from Restylane can be visible immediately, but the product continues to add volume after it is injected. Final results are seen about a week after injection.
Like other hyaluronic acid fillers, Restylane is naturally broken down over time. Restylane results typically last somewhere between six and 18 months. After this time, you may receive repeated injections to maintain the results of your Restylane treatment.
