Restylane is a line of hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers that helps plump your cheeks and lips, and smooth out wrinkles. Restylane is the first cosmetic dermal filler made of the sugar-based hyaluronic acid (HA), which is a naturally occurring sugar found in your body, especially in the connective and neural tissue. The Restylane family of products are versatile fillers which can be used for:

  • Lip enhancement and plumping (adding volume and shape)
  • Correcting crow’s feet (glabella lines)
  • Cheeks and chin (shaping and contouring)
  • Filling in tear troughs
  • Filling in hollow temples
  • Non-surgical nose job
  • Correcting nasolabial folds (nose to mouth lines)

Once Restylane is injected into the skin, it helps stimulate the production of more collagen, adds temporary support to the skin’s structure, and replaces lost volume, resulting in smoother wrinkles and fuller lips. Patients enjoy immediate results in a single visit, and results typically last 10 to 12 months.

Pain is minimal since many of the restylane products contain an integrated anesthetic, lidocaine, which helps provide you with a more comfortable treatment experience.

What Type of Restylane Do I Need?

Each product is a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid designed for a specific purpose. During an initial consultation with a Vitalogy Medical Spa Provider, we will discuss your areas of concern, and desired results to decide which one is best for you. These are the main types of Restylane:
