Restylane-L | Encino
Restylane is a dermal filler that is used to treat mild to extreme facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds (lines that extend from the corners of your mouth to the corners of your mouth) and marionette lines (lines that run from the corners of your mouth towards your chin). Restylane is ideal for patients who want a natural-looking filler to help them add volume to the delicate areas around the face such as the lips and under-eye/tear trouphs.

How Long Will It Last?
Restylane has a one-year period of effect. After 18 months, 95 percent of patients continued to see lasting effects according to the RestylaneUSA website.
Patients are advised to schedule another Restylane procedure after a year to achieve the best results.
Some patients’ results may last longer than others. This is because of the patient’s metabolism and level of activity. Patients who smoke and exercise on a daily basis have less long-term success.
Restylane is produced from hyaluronic acid, which the body produces naturally. Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are the best dermal fillers available, and they are fully reversible if the patient so desires.
Restylane-L Possible Side Effects
At the injection sites, patients can experience mild side effects such as redness, scratching, bruising, tenderness, and swelling. This is natural, and the majority of side effects go away in 2-4 weeks.
Almost all patients are able to resume their normal activities after treatment.
Patients should avoid the heat, avoid scratching the injection sites, and refrain from exercising for 1-2 days after treatment.
