Restylane Dermal Filler
Restylane is a dermal filler gel that is injected into the skin in order to restore lost volume to lips, smooth wrinkles, facial sculpting and contouring and improving other facial features such as cheekbones and jawline.

Approved by the FDA in December 2003, Restylane injections can produce positive results on facial wrinkles, particularly around the mouth and nose. Another benefit is the long-lasting results, as the effects of Restylane treatments can last six months to one year or more. The most common areas for receiving Restylane injections are from the corner of your mouth to your chin, from the base of the nose to the angle of the mouth and the lips.
