Although there are some cheaper alternatives on the market, I still prefer the results I get with Restylane, which is regarded as one of the safest and most popular dermal fillers in the UK.
Restylane offers a natural and safe solution for the treatment of facial lines, wrinkles and lip augmentation. The result is instantaneous and produces a long-lasting, natural enhancement, gentle and safe to your skin.
How does Restylane work?
Restylane is a crystal-clear, non-animal, biodegradable gel based on a natural substance called hyaluronic acid. The gel is injected into the skin in tiny amounts with a very fine needle. When injected into the skin, Restylane produces volume that smoothes the wrinkle or fold, shapes the facial contour or enhances the lips in a natural way.
What areas can be treated with Restylane?
The most common areas that are treated with Restylane include peri-oral lines around the mouth (lipstick lines), nasolabial lines (these run from the base of the nose to the corners of the mouth) and oral commissures (marionette lines).
Thin or uneven lips benefit from the extra fullness Restylane fillers can provide.
Peri-orbital, forehead and glabella lines can be treated with Restylane, but I usually recommend that these are treated in the first instance with wrinkle relaxing injections (Botox Cosmetic).
How long does the Restylane injection take?
The Restylane treatment itself is very short, generally taking no longer then 30 minutes to administer.
How many treatments of Restylane are required?
The temporary filler normally lasts 6 – 12 months depending on the individual and the area which has been treated. Restylane for lips will last 6 months but again this depends on the individual and how your body degrades the product. Regular top-up treatments of Restylane are normally recommended to maintain the effect, but you may have a one-off treatment specifically for a special event.
