Restylane Injectable Treatment
Restylane is an injectable treatment containing lidocaine for moderate to severe nasolabial folds. It is the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that lasts up to 18 months with only one follow-up treatment at either 4.5 or nine months.
Restylane is an approved FDA treatment cosmetic treatment that is injected into the subdermal facial tissues. It is a specific formulation of non-animal sourced hyaluronic acid that is most commonly used for lip augmentation. The Restylane treatment instantly adds volume to help restore youthful contours and results can be seen immediately following your treatment. Restylane is injected under wrinkles and facial aging lines such as, forehead wrinkles, and nasolabial and melomental folds.
After your injections, recovery time takes around three days because of associated swelling and bruising, redness, pain, and tenderness.
This will normally last less than seven days.
After treatment, your health care provider may ask you to return in two or three weeks for reassessment.

- Have had previous bad allergies, particularly to certain microorganisms known as gram-positive bacteria or drugs that have required in-hospital treatment.
- Bleeding disorders.
- Allergy to lidocaine.
- Are pregnant or breastfeeding.

You should also inform your plastic surgeon if you have:
- Previously suffered from facial cold sores.
- Recently used aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, st. John’s wort, or high doses of vitamin e supplements. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
