What is Restylane?

Restylane injectable filler is a hyaluronic acid with lidocaine and is used for lip enhancement, diminishing wrinkles and aging lines of the face, crow’s feet and forehead wrinkles. It is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own hyaluronic acid, and eventually breaks down naturally.

Am I a good candidate for Restylane?

Restylane should not be used by people with previous bad allergies, particularly to microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria or by people with serious allergies to drugs that have previously required in-hospital treatment. Restylane should not be used by people allergic to lidocaine or with bleeding disorders.

What can I expect from Restylane?
