FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP combat the signs of aging with RESTYLANE®?

The good news is that you can do something about the signs of aging in the face and hands with products in the Restylane family — to help reveal a younger-looking you.

Products in the Restylane family are used to:

  • provide natural-looking results by smoothing away facial wrinkles and folds and adding volume to lips 

  • provide subtle lip enhancement and smoothing the lines around them 

  • add fullness to the cheeks, midface area, and the back of the hands which can result in a more natural-looking, youthful appearance 

  • provide natural-looking results to laugh lines with flexibility that allows you to maintain your natural expressions 

That means you get minimally invasive, clinically proven, natural-looking results to help achieve the look you want. 

What are dermal fillers? What is hyaluronic acid?

Dermal fillers are facial injection treatments used to help diminish wrinkles while restoring volume and fullness in the face and hands. There are several types of dermal fillers, one being hyaluronic acid. All Restylane products are transparent hyaluronic acids, which are sugars naturally found in the skin that help provide hydration, fullness and elasticity.

 

How long do Restylane treatments last?

With full treatment, you can see lasting results for up to 18 months in nasolabial folds with Restylane;10 up to 12 months in the cheeks, up to 6 months in the back of the hands, and up to 6 months in facial wrinkles and folds, such as nasolabial folds, with Restylane Lyft;3 6 months for lips and perioral rhytids with Restylane Silk;11 and up to 12 months in the facial wrinkles and folds (such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines) with Restylane Refyne and Restylane Defyne.12,13

 
How long does it take Restylane treatments to work?

Depending on your volume needs, most Restylane treatment appointments last less than an hour and begin to work almost immediately by adding volume to smooth away wrinkles. A clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, Restylane products act like your body's own hyaluronic acid (and eventually break down naturally). Each Restylane product is designed for a specific purpose.

How much do Restylane treatments cost?

There are several factors that figure into how much treatment will cost, including:

  • Number of treatment sessions needed

  • Amount of Restylane product used per session

  • Degree of necessary correction determined by you and your specialist

  • Specialist fees

  • Discounts and special offers

  • Geographic market

Since injection costs will vary from person to person, the best way to determine projected costs is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Dupon to determine the best recommendation for your particular needs. 

What are the side effects of Restylane products?

After your treatment, you may experience side effects, such as swelling, redness, pain, bruising, headache, tenderness, lump formation, itching at the injection site and impaired hand function. These are typically mild in severity and normally last less than 7 days in nasolabial folds and less than 14-18 days in lips. Patients should be limited to 6.0 mL per treatment of moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds. For treatment of volume deficit in the hands, patients should be limited to 3.0 mL per hand per treatment. Swelling may be more likely in patients under 36 years, and bruising may be more likely in patients over 35 years.
