You may be a candidate for Restylane® if you have wrinkles on your face or around your lips that you want to diminish. Restylane® can also be used if you desire to have fuller or more defined lips, if you have deep nasolabial folds (the lines between the nose and the corner of your mouth). Restylane® can smooth out, fill in and decrease wrinkles. It is also intended to plump lips and define the edges of lips. Restylane® is helpful because it can fill in and reduce the depth of the nasolabial fold and can also fill in depressed, acne scars.
Restylane® contains hyaluronic acid in the form of a crystal clear gel injected into the skin to lift the lip, wrinkle or fold. Once in the skin, Restylane® works together with the body’s own hyaluronic acid and joins forces to create volume.
Restylane® Injection Procedure
Restylane® can be done in the office by appointment. An injection of numbing cream may be used to help with discomfort. At Wake Health Medical Group, only Board Certified cosmetic surgery physicians perform the Restylane injection procedure.
Patients in Raleigh, NC who want fuller lips with a better shape and structure have a new solution with Restylane Silk. In recent months, the injectable filler has been used to add volume to the lips and fill in lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Made by the same company that brought Restylane to the market to fill moderate and severe wrinkles across the face, Restylane Silk provides similar and predictable results to the lips.
Perlane is a “sister” product to Restylane and contains the same hyaluronic acid but the construction is of larger gel particles and a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid. This makes Perlane best suited for mid to deeper dermal filling for facial folds, deep wrinkles and supportive type volume correction.
