What is Restylane?

Restylane is a brand of hyaluronic acid based facial fillers used to smooth wrinkles. Different types of Restylane can be used for various needs, including:

  • lip enhancement
  • targeting lines around your mouth
  • adding volume to your cheeks
  • minimizing dark circles under your eyes
Hyaluronic acid naturally occurs in the connective tissue of skin, so it’s most commonly used in aesthetic procedures.

Almost anyone can get Restylane since the procedure is easily done and recovery is quick.

You should avoid Restylane if you’re:
  • allergic to bacterial protein
  • immunocompromised
  • taking blood thinners
  • pregnant or breastfeeding

How does Restylane work?


Restylane works by placing volume underneath your skin where you’ve lost collagen and other tissue. This helps smooth out and lift skin, making it look plumper.

The hyaluronic acid in Restylane deposits in the skin and provides volume. The acid also attracts more water, helping to preserve the recently added volume.


Procedure for Restylane

Depending on how much work you’re having done and the procedure itself, Restylane injections can take anywhere from a 20 minutes to an hour.

The procedure can be broken down into several steps:

  • Our doctor or injectors will select one or more injection sites in the treatment areas and clean these areas with antiseptic.
  • Together we will decide how much Restylane is needed.
  • The product selected such as Restylane is injected under your skin into the treatment areas using an ultrafine needle or cannula technique.

How is Restylane administered?
