What is Restylane®?
Restylane® is considered a premier wrinkle filler because it is a safe, temporary, non-animal form of hyaluronic acid gel, a naturally occurring substance that binds water to cells. Restylane® is injected to fill out creases and lines. It is not to be confused with Botox, which basically relaxes muscles, and they work brilliantly together as a team. The most common areas to have done are lips, nasal labial folds, smile lines and drooping corners of the mouth. Restylane® is a very pure and stabilized form of hyaluronic acid.

Are there any Side Effects?
Restylane® has minimal side effects. The most common is slight bruising, which is seen in about 20% of patients. The injection hurts more than collagen because collagen has anesthetic. Less common problems would include allergies, but this is very rare. Some patients experience an infection or a cold sore due to the injection of the needle. Additionally, there maybe a little swelling after the needle is injected, and resolves within a day or two.
