Restylane can be used to add volume and fullness to the skin to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, such as the lines from your nose to the corners of your mouth (nasolabial folds). For individuals wishing to eliminate or reduce the appearance of fine lines wrinkles and add volume to their lips, Restylane may be the right choice for you. Restylane is a derma-filler that replaces lost volume and restores youthful contours to the skin to smooth away moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds such as the lines from your nose to the corner of your mouth (nasolabial folds).
Restylane is hydrophilic or “water loving.” The hydrophilic nature of these hyaluronic acid molecules and their three dimensional structure allows them to bind many times their own weight in water. As hyaluronic acid begins to degrade, each molecule binds to more water which helps to maintain its volume for about six months.
