The Restylane family can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles
and folds, including the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial
folds or laugh lines).
The Restylane family can also be used in other moderate to severe facial wrinkles such as lipstick lines—
the area just below the nose and above the upper lip; the corners of the mouth; and
marionette lines—the area that extends downward from the corners of the mouth to the jawline.
Restylane and Restylane-L are the only FDA-approved dermal fillers for lip enhancement in patients over 21 years, and are uniquely formulated to give your lips fullness and definition. Learn more about Restylane for lip enhancement.
Treatment volume should be limited to 6.0 mL in wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, and limited to 1.5 mL per lip (Restylane and Restylane-L only), as greater amounts significantly increase moderate and severe injection site reactions. The safety or effectiveness of treatment in areas other than nasolabial folds and lips (Restylane and Restylane-L only) has not been established in controlled clinical studies.
After treatment, you might have some swelling, redness, pain, bruising, or tenderness. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and 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.
