Restylane® and Restylane-L® are the only FDA-approved dermal fillers for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years
Why is young skin so supple and full? In part, because of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity.
Restylane is a unique formulation of hyaluronic acid that helps maintain lip fullness.

- Avoid using aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (such as ibuprofen), St John's wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements, as these may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
- Talk with your healthcare professional if you have previously suffered from facial cold sores. He or she may prescribe a medication to minimize recurrence.
- Treatment with Restylane generally takes less than an hour (individual treatment times may vary).
- Your healthcare professional will cleanse and prepare the area to be treated. Then Restylane gel is injected into the treatment area using an ultra-fine needle to create the desired effect.
- Immediate visible results.
- Use cold compresses to reduce swelling.
- Avoid exposure to intense heat (sun lamp or sunbathing).
- Reduce the risk of facial cold sore recurrence that could be caused by needle punctures. Talk with your healthcare professional about medications that may minimize an outbreak.
- Avoid taking aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications, St John's wort, or high doses of vitamin E supplements for one week after treatment. These agents may increase bruising and bleeding at the injection site.
- After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 14 days in lips. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
- Contact your healthcare professional if you experience side effects beyond 14 days—and ask about follow-up appointments.
