What can be treated?
RESTYLANE can be used for smoothing out folds and wrinkles, lip
enhancements and shaping facial contours. The most common areas are
the glabellar lines (between the eyebrows), the nasolabial folds (from
the root of the nose to the angle of the mouth) and the lips, but
other sites can also be treated. Very superficial or very deep
wrinkles may be difficult to correct. Please consult Dr. Palma for an
How long does the effect of a RESTYLANE treatment last?
The length of time the effect of a RESTYLANE treatment lasts is very
individual and depends on many factors, such as the structure of your
skin, lifestyle, age, the degree of perfection demanded and the
injection technique of the practitioner. Experience indicates that
touch-up and follow-up treatments will add to the duration.
Most people choose to have a new treatment within a year after the
treatment of wrinkles and folds and within 6 months after a lip
there any side-effects?
The rate of reactions to RESTYLANE is very low.
However, after the treatment some common injection-related reactions
may occur, such as swelling, redness, pain, itching, discoloration and
tenderness at the injection site. These typically resolve
spontaneously within a few days after injection into the skin and
within a week after the injection into the lips. Other types of
reactions are very rare, but about 1 in 2000 treated patients have
experienced localized reactions thought to be of a hypersensitive
nature. These have usually consisted of swelling at the injection
site, sometimes affecting the surrounding tissues. Redness, tenderness
and rarely acne-like formations have also been reported. These
reactions have either started a few days after the injection or after
a delay of two to four weeks, and have generally been described as
mild to moderate and self-limiting with an average duration of two
weeks. For more
