Injectable fillers such as Restylane are clear gel particles made of hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the body. The substance is FDA approved and are broken down naturally.
These fillers are used to add volume and fullness to the skin. They are used to correct moderate to severe wrinkles and folds and add fullness to the lips.
Injectable fillers are administered by a trained physician.
Visible results last approximately 6 months. Individual results may vary. Be sure to discuss with your healthcare provider what you can expect.
A mild amount of discomfort may be experienced during the injections. Some of the fillers come with local anesthetic mixed in with the hyaluronic acid. If not, your healthcare provider may offer to numb the face prior to injection or perform the procedure under intravenous conscious sedation.
