Restylane is an injectable filler that is designed to fill out facial wrinkles to provide volume and fullness to the face. It is a clear, liquid gel made of hyaluronic acid that provides the skin with fullness and elasticity. Because it’s made up of a highly biocompatible hyaluronic acid base, the incidences of adverse reactions with Restylane are very minimal, making it an ideal choice for anyone who wishes to improve their appearance.
Restylane acts very much like the body’s naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid, providing instant hydrating effects to the skin for smoothing out facial and nasolabial folds, wrinkles around the mouth, and marionette lines to add definition and fullness to the areas being treated. Dr. Massoudi uses Restylane under the eyes and at the corners of the mouth.
After the initial Restylane treatment, follow-up treatments are normally recommended every six to twelve months, depending on the individual and the treatment received. A treatment of the lips lasts about six months.
