What is Restylane?

Restylane is a hyaluronic acid filler formulated to soften the appearance of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including from the nose to the mouth. Restylane in Beverly Hills can also be used to increase volume in the lips. This filler mimics the hyaluronic acid naturally produced by your body.

How Does Restylane Work?

During your personal consultation, our certified injector will consult with you to determine how much product is necessary to get your desired results. Once your Restylane treatment plan is set, the injector will then cleanse the area, target the injection sites, and begin treatment with a very fine needle.

What Are the Side Effects of Restylane?

Like any cosmetic procedure, there are common side effects associated. Side effects such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache and itching at the injection site are often very mild and subside within seven days in the facial folds, and less than 14 in the lips. After your treatment, you can may increase your comfort by using a cold compress to reduce swelling.

Who Can Benefit from Restylane?

Anyone over the age of 21 that is interested in adding volume to their lips and filling facial lines and wrinkles can benefit from Restylane. There are some patients that should avoid injectables, including:

  • Patients who are pregnant or breast feeding.
  • Patients under the age of 18 for facial lines and under 22 years for lips.
  • Patients that have recently taken a drug that thins the blood.
