A safe and natural filler that is non-animal derived and naturally found in the skin, Restylane® contained hyaluronic acid and is used to fill deeper folds and wrinkles on the lower half of the face most commonly to restore volume. It can also aid in contouring the lips for a fuller appearance. Since it is non-animal derived, Restylane® does not require allergy pre-testing as is the case with other filler substances.
Your provider at AllPhases Dermatology will tailor treatment to you. The most common areas for Restylane treatment are the glabellar lines (which run between the eyebrows) and the nasolabial folds (which run from the sides of the nose to the corners of the mouth). Restylane injectable gel is also FDA-approved, for those 21 and older, for enhancing the lips. According to manufacturer Medicis, results can last for up to 6 months, at which point the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body.
