What Is Restylane®?
Restylane® is a facial filler that was formulated to emulate the hyaluronic acid your own body produces. Hyaluronic acid plays a big role in keeping your skin supple, so it’s important to keep up your supply if you want to stay looking your best. Restylane® was designed to specifically serve as a facial filler for the nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and any other wrinkles found around your mouth and nose. In addition to being an effective facial filler, Restylane® is also an FDA-approved lip injection for patients in Southington, Connecticut, who are over the age of 21. The specially formulated clear gel will enhance your lips by making them fuller and more defined.
How Does Restylane® Work?
Hyaluronic acid, the main component of Restylane®, attracts water to your skin and retains the moisture once it is there. This increased moisture means more volume, which makes the wrinkles disappear and your skin appear younger. Restylane® replaces the hyaluronic acid your body lost through the aging process, and it will eventually breakdown on its own. Compared to other facial fillers, Restylane® tends to be more cohesive, so it will stay where it is placed instead of dissipating. That means that Restylane® requires the work of a skilled practitioner in Southington, CT to mold it after the face or lip injection.

What to Expect After Restylane® Injections
Your appointment for Restylane® at our Southington, Connecticut medical spa will only last about 20 minutes. We will strategically inject the facial filler into your skin or give you a lip injection to help you get the natural, fuller appearance you desire. Once your Restylane® has been injected, the results will be instant, and will continue to improve over the next few days. Some of our Southington, CT patients do report minor swelling, but that goes away on its own very quickly. As far as how long your results from Restylane® will last, clinical studies show that you can see the effects of the facial filler for between six to nine months, and the Restylane® lip injection will last about six.
