Restylane® can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). Restylane may also be used for lip enhancement in patients looking to enhance their lips in a natural looking way. This makes Restylane the ideal solution for facial rejuvenation. At Dr Hennessy Aesthetics, we offer a range of facial filler treatments that use Restylane to help achieve your desired appearance.
What is Restylane?
This product is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid that is specifically formulated to act like your body’s own naturally produced hyaluronic acid, helping to visibly correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, including the lines that run from your nose toward the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds) and the lines that run from the corners of your mouth toward the chin (marionette lines).
Where is Restylane used?
Restylane is a type of dermal filler that can be used in a number of different areas of the face, such as:
- Lips- can be used to enhance both the upper and lower lips
- Smile lines
- Corners of mouth
- Marionette lines
Is Restylane safe?
We understand that some of our clients may feel apprehensive, especially if it is their first time receiving filler. One of our most commonly asked questions is ‘is it safe’? It is important to know that Restylane and Restylane® Silk are FDA-approved. The products are trusted, proven and have been around for a long time. There is heavy investment in Restylane products because of their effectiveness. Though some patients may experience side effects such as redness, swelling, bruising or tenderness at the site of injection, these side effects are temporary and mild in nature. Most patients report that these symptoms last less than seven days.
Why does Dr Hennessy use it?
Dr Hennessy Clinics pride themselves on their use of the highest quality products used for filler. Restylane is proven to be an effective filler that provides lasting results and importantly, as it is broken down by the body, it doesn’t migrate or leave lumps. Another reason why Dr Hennessy uses this product is because there is such a range of what it can be used for, so whether you are looking to refine your facial features with a natural but voluminous looking treatment or relax the tension of facial muscles associated with frown lines, this product can be used effectively to treat both.
