What is Restylane?

Restylane is the world’s leading collection of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. This collection includes numerous hyaluronic acid formulations, each suitable for different treatment areas, goals, and desired results. Thicker HA formulations might elevate facial volume and fill out nasolabial folds, whereas thinner HA formulations may reduce fine lines and enhance lip contours. Each Restylane treatment plan is uniquely designed according to your individual needs and goals, ensuring safe and subtle results.

How it Works

Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible and biodegradable compound that can bind up to 1,000x its own weight in water, a property that makes your skin look luminous, voluminous, and supple. When you’re young, your body produces a high volume of hyaluronic acid, but the ability to produce and retain HA is depleted with age, leading to wrinkled skin. Restylane fillers restore your skin’s hyaluronic acid reserves to fill out fine lines and wrinkles, enhance facial volume, and facilitate naturalized facial contouring.

Your Restylane Journey


Your cosmetic provider will mark the treatment areas using a marker, creating a strategic treatment map on your face. Based on your unique goals, the injector will select the ideal Restylane formulations and the appropriate units of each filler. After applying a numbing gel on your face, the chosen fillers will be injected into your facial skin using ultrafine needles. Restylane fillers contain an anesthetic called lidocaine, ensuring complete comfort.


Restylane fillers don’t necessitate downtime or an extended recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately, though you should avoid strenuous workouts. You may experience minimal side effects, such as redness, swelling, tenderness, and bruising for a few days, but you can conceal them using makeup.


Restylane produces instant results — your skin will look softer, smoother, and fuller by the time you leave the medical spa. However, you’ll appreciate the full results once the side effects dissipate within a few days. The final results last for 9 to 18 months, depending on the chosen Restylane fillers and the treatment areas. If you don’t like the results, you can also dissolve Restylane fillers using a special enzyme.
