  • Lips
  • Laugh lines (nasolabial folds)
  • Marionette lines
  • Lipstick lines
  • Corners of mouth

How long does Restylane last?

Restylane is carefully stabilized in order to maximize the lengths of the cosmetic effect, and studies have show that the results of Restylane generally last for about 6 months. Most patient's schedule Restylane treatments 2 or 3 times per year.

Do I need anything before treatment?

There are no special tests required prior to treatment; however the use of aspirin, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications or other supplements that cause increased tendency of bleeding or bruising should be avoided for the 10-14 days prior to treatment.

The doctor uses topical and/or local anesthetic in order to minimize any discomfort during the treatment. Many patients say that they are surprised at how easy and simple the treatment process is.
