If you’ve been around our Las Vegas med spa you’ve probably heard the term “Restylane” before. What is Restylane, exactly? What is its purpose? Well, we’re going to let you know that and a few other good-to-knows about this increasingly popular filler.
What is Restylane?
Restylane, made by pharmaceutical company Galderma, is a Hyaluronic Acid (which is naturally produced in your body) designed to help smooth wrinkles and plump your cheeks and lips.
How Long Does Restylane Last?
Results will vary based on the client’s metabolism and if any previous product had been used before, however, on average Restylane can last around 12 months in the cheeks, about 6 months for anti-wrinkle and 4-6 months for lips.
Is Restylane Safe?
Yes, as an FDA-approved product, Restylane is safe for use. Restylane is a biodegradable product that metabolizes safely into the body.
When Do You See Results from Restylane?
Most people see results immediately, however complete results can be achieved within 1-2 weeks.
Can Restylane be Dissolved?
Yes, Restylane can be dissolved via a treatment called hyaluronidase. Hyaluronidase has an immediate effect as it breaks down and softens the Hyaluronic Acid.
As you can see, Restylane is quickly becoming one of the most popular Hyaluronic Acids on the market. Give us a call or book an online appointment to learn more about Restylane or any of our other injection treatments.
