What is it?
Restylane® is an FDA approved clear, non-animal-based, biodegradable gel that is composed of hyaluronic acid. Injected into the facial tissue, Restylane® is used to restore volume to the face and improve the appearance of the wrinkles and folds temporarily, especially around the nose and mouth. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugars found in the human body. Recent research indicates the injectable filler stimulates the growth of new collagen, and possibly prevents its breakdown.
Just after the injections of Restylane® there will be a few spots of entry that will be apparent, some pinkness of the skin and a bit of swelling. The swelling can last for a couple of days to a week depending on each patient. However, the swelling will disappear and the results will be very apparent making you very pleased.
“Dr Farahmand was very gentle and concerned for my comfort during the injection. She injected Perlane® in the deep lines or what some call the “parenthesis” on the side of my nose, I had no pain or discomfort at all. I could not believe the difference that it had made. I am so happy and would come back to her again!”
