Restylane® is an injectable, hyaluronic acid that is frequently used to add volume to the lips, cheeks and other areas that have begun to show the signs of aging or that lack the fullness that patients desire. This clear gel can also add moisture to the treated area, making it feel younger, softer and more comfortable.
Using Restylane® to plump your lips is an easy, non-invasive way to radically alter your appearance. This procedure can be completed in mere minutes and entails very few risks or side effects.
Suitable Candidates for Restylane® Treatment
Restylane® treatments do not entail any tissue removal or cutting. The recovery process is short and easy, and the risk of complications is minimal. Thus, almost anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or add greater volume to the lips can receive Restylane® injections for rapid and remarkable improvements.
Women who are breastfeeding or pregnant should not receive Restylane® injections.
Using Restalyne® To Enhance Facial Contours
Nearly all facial skin can be safely treated with Restylane®. Restalyne® injections for plumping the lips, however, are typically performed with larger particle size versions of this gel for optimal effects.
Lip injections can produce impressive results in mere minutes that will last for several months. Because hyaluronic acid is naturally present within the body, Restylane® injections are gradually absorbed over time.
As the results begin to fade, people can have their injections repeated to restore lost volume. Most procedures for plumping the lips with Restylane® last between four and six months.
What To Expect During Your Procedure
A Restylane® lip augmentation procedure will typically last less than half an hour and most treatments can be completed in mere minutes.
A mild numbing agent can be applied to the target site to limit any discomfort and make the treatment process more pleasant overall.
Caring For Your Lips After a Restylane® Lip Treatment
Your provider will gently massage the treated area to ensure smooth, even-looking results once all of the necessary injections have been made. Ice can also be applied to limit discomfort. The results from this treatment will be visible immediately.
