U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved Restylane® injectable gel is a cosmetic “filler” that contains hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance that is found in the body. HA gives volume and elasticity to the skin, but as the body ages, HA levels decrease, resulting in loose skin and wrinkling. When injected, Restylane gel is designed to plump the skin beneath lines and wrinkles, smoothing them out and making them less noticeable.
Common areas for Restylane treatment are are the mid cheek and cheekbone, chin, marionette and smile lines. Restylane injectable gel is also FDA-approved, for those 21 and older, for enhancing the lips. According to manufacturer Galderma, results can last for up to 1 year, at which point the hyaluronic acid is reabsorbed by the body and additional treatments may be necessary to maintain desired results.
Restylane is part of hyaluronic acid-based facial fillers. It smooths wrinkles and plumps up cheeks and lips.
